But then, every once in a while you get it right, you almost think, it’s so wrong that something could be going so right. 

He’s the unicorn boyfriend and he does exist, despite the rumors. This mythical creature stands before you, continuing to awe you, you are forced to rub your eyes, thinking he’s gonna run away and it was all a dream. 

But he doesn’t. Here's how you'll know he knows how to be a good boyfriend.

Those times where he just grabs your face and kisses you, “just because,” is your favorite.

You are important to him, so he wants everyone to know it. There was once a time, where you were invited to guy's houses, only when no one was home, you look back and wonder why you tolerated that.

He wants to know everything about you. And even though, not all the things are great, he doesn’t judge you for it.

Even to the things you aren’t saying. He watches you, out of the corner of his eye, as fascinated in you, as you are him.
