A Christian boyfriend should be Humble and teachable: The Bible tells us that a righteous man, or a wise man, will take instruction gladly, even when it hurts him (Psalm 141:5; Proverbs 9:9, ).
A righteous man evidences a willingness to be corrected by Scripture and a tendency to love and listen to those who can teach him from the Scripture. The Bible says that a righteous man is characterized by honesty in his personal and business dealings (Ephesians ).
The following are some guidelines based on those verses.
Selfless: The Bible speaks specifically to husbands when it tells them to love their wives as they love their own bodies, just like Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her (Ephesians -28).
A Christian boyfriend should begin to exhibit this kind of care and love for his girlfriend long before marriage.
In addition, when he makes a promise, a Christian man keeps his promise, even when it hurts (Psalm 15:2-5).
In short, his character should be one of integrity.
