Has your girlfriend called you a good boy?
If so, why do women call men that, and is it something they should be proud of or not?
Well, it depends…
So, what does it mean if your girlfriend calls you a good boy? Most often, it is nothing evil. Most likely, she is trying to make you feel comfortable. But you need to pay attention to the tone of her voice. If she is laughing or teasing you or you can hear in her voice that she is mocking you, then being called a good boy is not good.
However, it can truly mean various things – from a compliment to an insult.
In this post, we are going to talk about what it might mean if your girlfriend calls you a good boy.
Why Your Girlfriend Calls You a Good Boy
Let’s go over the most common reasons girlfriends call you this term.
She Loves You
She might call you this because she simply loves you and she wants to show you her love. It might also be because you are very kind, well-mannered, and good to her.
It could also be that she wants to appreciate you for what you are or she might mean this in a different way than what you think.
You might be a really good boy when it comes to her but when you are with your friends you do completely opposite things so this might be what she means by calling you a good boy.
Here are a few examples of what she might mean when calling you a good boy:
- She can’t control herself whenever she sees you.
- She might call you this because she’s trying to give you a compliment but ends up stuffing you with it.
- She might call you this because she thinks you need to be told how good you are.
- She might call you this because she thinks it’s cute.
- She might call you this because she thinks you’re just too innocent for this world.
- She might call you this because she’s hoping that you’ll play along.
You Treat Her Well
She might also call you a good boy because you treat her so well, and she can’t help but feel a sense of gratitude and wonder.
She soon finds herself telling her friends about how amazing you are, and how you do things that she doesn’t even expect you to do.
Your constant surprise gifts, your thoughtful gestures, and your willingness to go above and beyond to make her happy, give her a sense that the person she’s with is a good person.
If every time she texts you good morning you text good morning back, and when she texts you that she misses you you tell her you miss her too, she’s going to feel appreciated, and she’s going to feel good.
She feels a sense of security in a relationship when she knows that she has a good man, and she wants to make sure you feel the same way.
You are constantly courteous to her, making sure that you are doing what she needs you to do.
She appreciates that kind of treatment, and she wants you to know that she appreciates it. That’s why she calls you a good boy.
While you may think that calling you a good boy is condescending, your girlfriend is probably trying to be nice to you.
She loves pulling you out of your shell, and she loves it, even more, when you are confident in yourself.
As you are being more confident, you are feeling more comfortable to bring her things she likes, or at least is saying she likes, knowing that she is getting the things she has always wanted.
So, if your girlfriend says you’re a good boy, it doesn’t mean that you’re not one.
You Treat Her Too Good
Now, your girlfriend might also call you a good boy if you treat her too well.
For example, if you do all the household work, buy her gifts, never do anything to anger her, go out of your way to make her happy, and do a bunch of other messed up things, she might start thinking you’re a doormat and call you a good boy.
Obviously, this is not a good thing because she’ll think you’re a doormat and no girl wants a doormat of a boyfriend – it’s not attractive.
She’s Insulting You
Sometimes girlfriends will call their boyfriends a ‘good boy’ if they’re trying to insult them. It’s a bit like calling someone a ‘goody two shoes’.
The reasoning is that the person has become exactly the kind of man that they never wanted to be with.
It’s a passive-aggressive way for your girlfriend to vent her frustration with you.
Maybe she’s sick of dating someone so safe and predictable that he has all the personality of a roll of toilet paper, or worse, that he actually is a roll of toilet paper.
Not literally of course, but that’s what it feels like.
She’s Teasing You
Now, she could also be teasing you, which can be in a good or bad way.
If she’s doing it because she knows that you’re not into being called a good boy, then that can be pretty annoying.
However, if she’s doing it because you like being called a good boy then that means that your relationship is in a pretty great place.
She might call you a good boy because she thinks it’s cute, or she might do it to get some kind of reaction out of you.
You might even be into it, in which case she’ll call you a good boy every chance she gets!
And lastly, it’s possible that your girlfriend is not only teasing you, but she’s also joking around.
If that’s the case then it could be a good thing because she’s trying to lighten up your relationship with humor, whether it be because you’ve been spending too much time together or not.
It can be frustrating when you’re girlfriend is calling you a good boy for all the wrong reasons, but it may just mean that she loves teasing you.
Make sure that you lighten up and don’t take it too seriously, instead just laugh with her!
Is It Normal for Girlfriends to Call Their Boyfriends Good Boys?
It’s actually really common for girlfriends to call their boyfriends good boys.
It’s a way for them to show affection, security, and appreciation.
Don’t take it the wrong way.
She’s probably trying to tell you something positive, so don’t read too much into her words!
If your girlfriend calls you a good boy, it doesn’t mean that she’s insulting you, trying to control your behavior, or making fun of you.
It means something different for every girl and every relationship, so you’ll have to figure out what it means for your girlfriend and your relationship.
Hopefully, you now know a little more about what it means when your girlfriend does this.
