How to be a Great Girlfriend

Many women think they know what men want, but when it comes right down to it, they don’t know the last thing about what a man wants in a woman.  The fact of the matter is that most women put far too much thought into what they do and when they do it.  Men generally just want women to be themselves, but also respect them when they are themselves.  If you have been wondering what you can do to be a better girlfriend you might want to try:

1. Eating more than a salad when he takes you to dinner.  A guy wants a girl who will eat with him and when all you order time after time is a salad he’ll assume you have more issues than he is willing to deal with.
2. Don’t play guessing games.  Just tell him what you want.  A guy would rather that you just tell him what you want than to play games or expect that he’ll know what is wanted or expected of him.
3. Don’t call him silly names in front of his friends.  He may accept you calling him pookie when you’re at home, but leave the nicknames at home!
4. Tell him what you want in the bedroom.  Again, he would like you to just be honest and not require him to guess at what will make you happy.  He wants to please you, so let him know how.
5. Don’t ask him to meet your family and friends too soon.  You’ll scare him off if you do.  It’s not that he doesn’t like you or want to know your family; he just doesn’t want to rush into it.
6. Allow him to have a guy’s night out, and don’t complain about it.  Your man is who he is and has been since before you came along, so allow him to keep being himself even with you.
7. Go out with your friends.  He wants to be your boyfriend but he doesn’t want to be the center of your universe, he wants you to have fun with your friends, too.
8. Don’t call him when he is out with his friends more than once.  He likes you and wants to be with you, but doesn’t want to be tied down to you.
9. Have fun with him.  Don’t be uptight or worry too much about little things.  Remember, women usually put too much thought into things and your man will appreciate it if you don’t!
10. Don’t get angry when he turns on the game.  He likes sports.  You can try to talk about moderation after the game, but throwing a fit in the middle of the game will not do any good!

These are little things that every man wishes he could tell his girlfriend but isn’t quite sure how to word it.  Men generally are just much simpler than women when dating, and this is where many of the problems begin.  It may take some adjustment to commit to any of these things, but in the end you’ll find that it is more than worth it.
