2. The chance to get an advice
When you really respect someone for who they are and the things they think, you value their opinion in ways that trump the thoughts of others. You want to get their advice. You want to hear what they think about your latest conundrum. You want to get their input and perspective. If the man in your life not only asks for your opinion but really takes it to heart and factors it into his decisions, take it as a great sign.
