He’s a Protector: He removed me from situations in which I may be vulnerable or get hurt.
He is Incredibly Grateful: He expressed gratitude to play in Ohio and in his first professional game. He understands that what he has in his life is a privilege. He never takes it for granted or feels entitled by his achievements.
He is a Leader: He has worked hard to earn respect and get where he wants to go. He doesn’t rely on his parents wealth or connections to get him somewhere. He exudes confidence because he has put in the time and hard work to truly earn it.
He is a Role Model: He leads by example and respects himself and others at all times. How? Someone actually hit him. He did not engage in the behavior or fight back even though he is 6’3”, almost 200lbs and could crush the guy. Instead, he laughed it off and moved towards bigger and better things.
He Treats Women with Respect: He was kind, considerate and thoughtful. He was concerned for my well-being, safety and reputation. He asked questions and made efforts to ensure I felt okay.
He Makes His Own Fortune: He is young, yet lives on his own and already makes a decent living. He is focused on his future and being able to provide. It is clear he strives for success and wont settle for anything less.
This guy is the real deal. He is amazing.
This is what I want in a man. This is what I deserve.
