Most girls think they make great girlfriends, but it is afterall the decision of your partner to make and never yours! If you’ve landed the man of your dreams and want to be a better girlfriend, then browse through the tips below:
Start by being a better person
All people have good in them. The same way that people have bad in them. To be a better girl, you need to be a better person from the core of your heart.
Take things slow
In a relationship, every one needs their time and space. Never cling to your guy, respect his space and take some time off to be alone with your friends and thoughts too. Just because you are in a relationship doesn’t mean you need to spend every moment of every day together now, does it?
- Have an optimistic attitude at all times and be open to new things. Be the one who says yes more often than no. Your guy will want to hang out with you more and more.
Let go of the past
Everyone has a past. Your guy would definitely have had girlfriends before you. Don’t keep prying into his past to gather more information about what his exes were like. There is a reason as to why he isn’t with them anymore and why he is with you, so enjoy the fact that he’s with you and build a loving relationship. His history shouldn’t matter to you if you really like him.
Try to participate in activities that he likes
Just like girls love going shopping, men like playing ball or going for a basketball match. If you want to be a good girlfriend, you need to show some interest in things that he likes doing. Surprise him with tickets once in a way and accompany him to a game. Or by tickets for him and his best pals and send them!
Don’t lie to him or pretend to be something you are not. If you believe in love, you’ll have to believe in honesty too. Be you and impress him with the real you.
Don’t be insecure about your relationship
If a guy is with you, that means he likes you. And you can tell if there are genuine feelings involved or not. If he’s into you, enjoy his love and attention and don’t get insecure. Fact is that in his everyday life he will be communicating with other girls, some of whom will be beautiful, so you can’t be paranoid and keep asking him to justify his whereabouts and every conversation or outings. Show him that you trust him and that you are a strong person.
Don’t be insecure about your looks
If a guy is with you, he finds you attractive and beauty is finally at the eyes of the beholder. Don’t constantly question your boyfriend about whether you are looking pretty enough or not and whether he finds you prettier than XXXX. Your boyfriend likes you and so you should leave it at that. Be confident and go out with him, with your head held high at all times! It’s a fact that guys don’t like insecure girls, they like confident girls who know they look good.
Don’t be a control freak
To a certain extent, guys like girls who like to be in control but the minute you overdo it, they bail. Guys by nature are the ones who like control, well, that doesn’t mean that he should be dominating over you either. Learn to be equals and mutually understand and respect each other’s preferences, tastes, likes and dislikes.
Show a lot of affection for your man
Make him feel loved. Gift him special things, cook him things he likes to eat, take him out to dinner and don’t always expect him to pay. He shouldn’t feel like as though you would never contribute towards anything. He should feel the love you have for him…
Respect him and his friends
Don’t always run them doing trying to show that you and your friends are better than them. Guys don’t like girls who do that. Furthermore, a guy will always love you more knowing you have no issues with his friends.
Dress in the manner he likes often
If he likes it when you leave your hair lose, do that often. These little things will mean a lot to him and will make him feel like you love him.
Make him feel important
Look to him for advice on work issues. Ask him for advice on other things too. Make him like as though he is important to you.
- Get to know his family better and once you meet them, don’t immediately start talking about their faults. Try to praise his mother and sister and their ideals. He will love the fact that you’re trying hard to accept his family as they are.
