How To Be A Good Boyfriend
Don’t just tell them what you think they want to hear
It can be tempting, especially at the beginning of a relationship, to agree with everything or say things you think your partner wants to hear.
You want to impress them which makes sense, but this is not the way to do it. If you do this, you will come across as a weak person or like you don’t have any thoughts of your own.
This is of course not something that you want. You want to look confident and be respected. A girl wants you to tell her what you really think, especially when she asks for your opinion.
Be honest about what you want in the future
The same goes for when talk starts creeping in about your future. After you have both been together for a while, it is inevitable that you both, especially your girlfriend, will start talking about your future together.
She might ask what you see in your future and hint at marriage. You should only say that you have thought about something like this if you really have. There is no point leading her on.
Girls will get excited if they believe that their boyfriend eventually wants to marry them, buy a house with them, or have a baby with them.
If then the time comes and you back away, you will leave her really hurt and maybe lose her.
It’s best to be honest and tell her that you are not ready and what you want your future to look like.
Accept her habits and bizarre hobbies
Good boyfriends take their girlfriend for who she is.
They don’t try and change her or get annoyed when she does things a little differently. They simply smile and laugh when she does something funny.
We all have things that make us unique and sometimes those things can be annoying to others.
When you are someone’s boyfriend, you need to love them anyway and embrace any strange hobbies they might have.
She will be doing the same and accepting yours.
She might not have the same sex drive as you
Did you know that men fantasize about sex twice as often as woman? It makes sense then that woman and men would have different sex drives. A man’s is often much higher than a woman which can leave them feeling unloved.
The truth is, she doesn’t love you any less, she just does not have the same need or want for sex as you do.
Girls don’t like it when their boyfriends bring up sex all the time. It makes them feel guilty and like their boyfriend is only interested in one thing.
So, try to avoid doing that and instead organize romantic dates which might lead to sex. That will score you some serious boyfriend brownie points.
You don’t have to fix everything
If you have a girlfriend then of course you should be there for her and you should listen to her problems.
You should not feel however that you have to fix all of her problems. Sometimes she just wants to vent to you and then move on.
She does not expect you to stay up at night plotting revenge. You can of course offer her your opinion if it’s that type of problem. Otherwise, be there to listen to her and then leave it to her to solve it.
It’s nice to check in every once in a while and see how she is doing with it.
Don’t tell her your opinions if you think she’ll hate them
If you hold some controversial opinions then you don’t need to share them with her. Especially if your opinions are about women and could be offensive to her.
This could actually ruin your relationship and could lead to her breaking up with you.
Make sure to think before you speak so that you can avoid awkward conversations and situations.
A boyfriend has to be reliable.
Your girlfriend wants you to always do what you say you are going to do. This covers everything from turning up to a date on time to taking out the rubbish when you are supposed to.
A girl thinks that a good boyfriend should be reliable and be there for her. If you start letting her down then she will find someone else who won’t let her down.
Always look as good as you can
When we get into relationships sometimes we start letting our standards slip.
We start dressing in more casual clothing and not caring as much about how we look. We stop working out, we stop eating healthily and men stop looking after their facial hair.
Basically, everything falls to the wayside and your girlfriend will start to notice this. She will feel like you don’t care about how you look around her and that you don’t want to dress up for her which could really bring her down.
She might start to notice other guys who are dressing up and making an effort to stay in shape. This is the last thing you want.
The best thing you can do is to keep up your standards. Keep dressing nicely, stay in shape and keep your facial hair trimmed.
Make an extra effort to dress up on dates, this will keep the spark alive and your girlfriend happy.
Fight her corner
Your friends or family might not like your girlfriend.
This can be a really difficult spot for the both of you to be in.
You love your family and your friends and want to stay close to them. You also don’t want to lose your girlfriend and you want them all to get along.
The worst thing you can do though is leave her alone or not fight for her when they say mean things.
You need to be on her side and fight her corner. This is the true sign of a good boyfriend.
Don’t put down her friends, keep your opinions to yourself
You might not like her friends. That is ok, you are allowed to like or dislike whoever you want.
Don’t however put them down in front of her or stop her from seeing them. This can be really toxic in a relationship and could lead to it ending.
In this instance a good boyfriend keeps their opinions to themselves.
Your girlfriend wants to know the real you. She doesn’t want to get to know you only to find out that you are completely different a year down the road.
If she figures out that you were pretending to be someone else then she won’t trust you.
It’s better to be yourself from the beginning and she will then love you for you.
Don’t do big romantic gestures instead of actual affection
Every girl loves a romantic gesture don’t get me wrong, but your girlfriend doesn’t want you to use them instead of showing her affection.
She wants you to show her every day that you love her by telling her, holding her hand, hugging her and kissing her.
Surprise her with romantic gestures sometimes though
Do surprise her sometimes though!
Keep the romance alive by arranging some surprise dates to keep her well and truly romanced.
She will be the happiest girlfriend and tell everyone that you are the best boyfriend she’s ever had.
