A romantic relationship is not one of those things in life that you can simply place on autopilot and expect it to sustain itself. It requires a significant amount of effort. Here are nine tips that will provide the foundation for you to keep your man perpetually starry-eyed for you, and you alone.
1. Understand His Love Language
Invest the time to learn his love language, the way that he expresses his love for you. Understand that because he loves differently does not mean that he does not love you.
2. Don’t Chase Him
Men are natural hunters, and they prefer to pursue, even after they have got you. Also, chasing him is a sign of a lack of confidence, which is an automatic turnoff. Give him the space that he needs, without smothering him. He will appreciate you for it, and it will make him long for you.
3. Know When to Stop Talking and Listen
This is an area in which many women struggle. Generally speaking, women are better communicators than men, and this normally leads to ladies outtalking and over-talking their mates. This can be extremely frustrating for a man. Simply stopping to listen can have an immense impact on the heart of your man.
4. Leave Your Jealousy at the Door
There are not too many things that can zap the life out of a romantic relationship like jealous behavior. Where some women like to see their men get a little jealous, men don’t find any value in jealous behavior at all. In fact, they find it hostile and draining.
5. Let Him Have Time to Himself
Even the most affectionate and endearing man will need some time to himself. It is the way that he is made. It is how he maintains his balance and sanity. Additionally, the absence will give him time to miss you.
6. Get a Life
This tip sort of works in conjunction with the previous tip. While you are giving your man space, you should work on developing a personal life of your own.
7. Concentrate on the Positives
One of the fastest ways to push a man away is to constantly focus on the negatives. Learn how to focus on the positive and your man’s refuge. Learn how to be his greatest source of affirmation and confirmation. Focus on his strengths and the things about him that bring you happiness.
