You may not even realize how many boys you’ve been with until you date a man. Once you date a man, you’ll think, “Oh—was this an option the whole time? Having things be uncomplicated, easy, and straightforward?” We tolerate boys because we think that’s all that’s out there. We get used to giving boys a freaking parade for putting in the tiniest effort, and then we meet men who put in a huge effort every day and regret all those trophies we gave out to those lazy children. I don’t know what exactly turns a boy into a man. I know it isn’t age because I’ve met 28-year-olds who are men and 45-year-olds who are boys. Maybe it’s being raised right. Maybe it’s having the good fortune of knowing a female friend who sets them straight. Either way, here are key differences between a boy and a man.

A man asks you, “Can you have dinner at this specific place at this specific time?” Or, better yet, a man will research several diverse but quality options and pitch them to you, so you have plenty to choose from, but aren’t left planning everything.
