9. HE HAS STRUCTURE AND DIRECTION IN HIS OWN LIFE OUTSIDE OF THE RELATIONSHIP.
He doesn’t have to rely on you or on the relationship to make himself feel fulfilled. He does that on his own. He is mature enough to have his own plans in life. He has the ambition to pursue his dreams. And he has the work ethic to actually put in the effort to get everything that he wants out of life.
