Believe the song. It works.
"Don't go changing, to try & me...." It goes. & guys have confirmed that it is true. A deadly mistake girls make is changing drastically an element of themselves in efforts to their man. These changes are sometimes overwhelming, that a man is forced to back out. In case you are going to change, do it in tiny ways, & hint at it first, so as to make positive your man is all right with it.
You are not ideal so don't nag him about his flaws.
While you may be so caught up in your own tiny world, & would detest for your man to be less than ideal, keep in mind that a lovely relationship is based on both the compatibility & uniqueness of each partner. If there's positive things you cannot stand about your man, subtly & humorously tell him about it, while ensuring they gets the point. Or in case you think it deserves a sit-down-let's-talk moment, have - if they is resistive to change, understand his issues first. It probably is not as large as a deal as you make it to be.
Go out of your way.
Guys may not say much, but they appreciate tiny things you do, given the way of the world, where they do the wooing & females basically sit . Cooking for him could be an everyday thing, but cooking his favourite even when you have had a rough day at work is telling him how much you appreciate being with him. Or, choosing him over your friends although you have planned a girls night out several weeks ago, because he is depressed his dog died. It is not spoiling him, when you keep in mind the balance at all times.
Control those emotions, woman.
Men are supposed to be practical & females emotional - but it is this truth that drives men crazy & out of the door. Jealousy is of the products of this culprit known as emotions. & when females get jealous, it is not a sight. Showing your man the jealous monster in you is to give him nightmares & leave. In case you feel something is not right, confront him, without making it feel a lot of a confrontation. & for crying out loud, do not turn the waterworks on.
Whatever you do, honesty will always be the only owner.
It is the life & blood of any healthy relationship - & we are speaking forever here. Mutual honesty is important in keeping your bond alive. Encourage an open communication between you & your man, & subtly train him to tell you anything, anything at all, when they needs to. This way, they won't have an excuse to run off to someone else when they finds it so simple to speak to you.
Do not let yourself go.
& this is the balance they are referring to. While you may feel like the world's best girlfriend & would like to make a career out of looking after your large infant fella, you also require to pull yourself together & keep in mind that you have a life apart from your relationship. Maintain connections with relatives & friends, & always find time for yourself. Guys lose interest, no matter how much you give them, when they see that you have got let yourself go & you are no longer that pretty sex kitten you one time were.
