His will listen to your every complain, even when they are in vain. His insurmountable patience will calm your bouts of anger and make you fall in love with him all over again. However, your boyfriend will lock away his darkest fears and protect them with an armed guards.
Those constant phone calls and text messages asking you, where you are, who you are with, and what you are doing are only because he wants to know that you are safe. At times, this behavior may intrude your space too. However, you need to understand where it comes from and assure him that you are old enough to take care of yourself.

Don't Pull Away
We women love playing the chase game. We enjoy the attention and the moment it stops, we feel a certain monotony creep in. So, many of us love the whole coming-in-and-going-away game. In the initial stage, he may chase you keeping the playful charm alive. However, if you keep pulling away from him more than what should be done, he might start going away.
This will not only lead to an emotional rift, but also cause a physical distance. When the game is to be played from the other end, it takes a nasty turn which could have a dead-end. So be careful of this tug-of-war. He may never tell you that he doesn't like the game or the distance, but his actions will speak louder than words.
A man will never tell you not to be with his friends, because his camaraderie with them goes back a long way. So make sure you do not reciprocate to the love and affection his friends shower on you. Make a fine distinction between a platonic relationship and a romantic one.
The fear of losing, also refrains men from confessing they love someone or resort to being a commitment phobia. In reality, men spend more time in thinking about losing their women, than actually being in love with them.
These behavioral patterns stem from guarded, underlying insecurities or fears. Thus, knowing them well, stops at knowing them well enough. Random fun questions may give you answers to his favorite color, favorite song, favorite book and so on. But, delving deeper into his behavior and being an active listener will help you know your boyfriend better.
