Many women are not sure what a man wants or who they can be a good girlfriend to the man in their life. A lot of women struggle because they just aren’t ever really sure what men like and what they don’t. You shouldn’t change who you are, but there are some things that you can do or not do if you want to be a great girlfriend.
1. When you’re out on a date, eat something! There is nothing that is a bigger turn off than a girl who doesn’t like to eat. It doesn’t mean you need to eat until you make yourself sick, but it does mean that you need to order more than water with a lemon in it. He wants someone he can have fun with, and guys like to eat! If you want to be a great girlfriend, order something when he takes you out!
2. Don’t sit around and talk about your ex boyfriend. He is your ex because he is no longer in your life, or at least that is what your man wants to think. He doesn’t want to hear the good things and he doesn’t want to hear the bad things about the guys in your past. Just leave the topic of ex boyfriends out of the equation.
3. When it comes to affection and sex, don’t be afraid to tell him what you want from him. Men often get frustrated with women who aren’t open and honest about what they want from a man in a physical sense. He’ll think it is sexy if you ask for what you want.
4. Accept the fact that he will want to hang out with his friends from time to time. What a man wants is a woman who can be a lot of fun to hang out with, but one who is also independent and confident enough to allow him to hang out with his friends on his own from time to time.
5. Don’t say “I Love You” too soon and don’t expect him to say it back when you do. Many men are turned off by a woman who rushes into saying these three words. Once he has said the words, don’t expect him to say it 100 times a day. This neediness is a real turn off to a man.
If you follow these simple little tips you will find that it is a lot easier to keep your boyfriend happy. It can be difficult to do some of these things, but you’ll find when you go this route that you will be able to be yourself and get really real with him really fast. Of course, it’s important to be yourself, and if these tips don’t coincide with who you are, you definitely should not follow them!
