In a world full of guys like Stephen (Jackson White), men like Bree's (Catherine Missal) husband are few and far between.

Who does Bree marry? (SPOILERS)

Although we learn from the first episode of Tell Me Lies Season 1, Episode 1 that Bree ends up engaged to Evan (Branden Cook), the seventh episode reveals that the start of their relationship was far from smooth sailing.

Evan is obviously crushing on Bree when the Tell Me Lies friend group heads to his lake house for his 21st birthday. However, he holds back, trying to respect that Drew (Benjamin Wadsworth) is into her too.

Evan doesn't have the most relaxing 21st birthday though.

Evan's a pretty good example of a character contrast to Stephen. Where Stephen unabashedly revels in his red flags, Evan tries incredibly hard to be the nice guy.

However, the problem with withholding negative emotions too much is that eventually — they'll all come spilling out, typically at an inopportune time. After Evan's friends push Bree into kissing him over and over again during a game of 'Never Have I Ever,' the nice guy finally loses it.

Evan (understandably) snaps and tells his friends that they aren't being very good friends. The Tell Me Lies friend group finds him alone, out in the woods the next day.

However, it's Bree who actually hears Evan and accepts him for who he truly is. A kind man who tries his best, but also wants to be appreciated himself.

This is how you do the whole 'wife guy' thing right.

Braden explained, "There are no games. Their intentions are pure... Watching toxic relationships can be fun and exciting but I think showing the balance of something healthy as well gives people hope and provides them with an example of how things should be in real life." Can we just say — relationship goals?
