You love it when he has your back right?, not that he has any other choice. Here’s when you need him to back you up the most.
His family questioning your career
You could be serving drinks at a local bar, fact is you pay your bills and you’re earning an honest living. He should be able to make this clear to his family for them to give you the respect you need.
Guys hitting on you in front of him
Ofcourse you’re going to be hit on every now and again. However when it happens in front of him he should very subtly tell them to back off. You’re probably should be asking yourselve a lot questions If he doesn’t react to this.
A woman flirting with him
Such things happen and often in public spaces. He needs to put her in her place by making it clear that he’s taken. This shows that he’s proud of you and the relationship, but most importantly he respects you.
When you’re a very shy person
Shy people often don’t know how to stand up for themselves it gets worse with new relationships. He needs to bail you out everytime he gets the feeling that you’re uneasy. He can start a conversation on your behalf or stand up to whoever he feels like is intimadating you.
When someone calls you “another fling”
He could have history of being a player but you might just be the woman that changed his ways. He cannot sit in silence here, you expect to hear things like “ We’re actually looking into moving in together” or “Im done with being a player”. You do need abit of asuurance at times.
