The actor did not shed light on this any further, but his words could be interpreted to mean that a great boyfriend is one who sheds himself of his 'masculinity' and 'hard guy' demeanour when he's with his woman, a man who is not shy to show his babe his emotional, soft and mushy side.

When asked further in the interview, Ellis says his relationship red flag includes cheating, and lack of proper communication.

The actor aired this views during a video interview with Essence Magazine, where he was asked questions on relationship matters.
