I say ‘almost’ for a reason. I forgot to add ‘romance’ and if you have forgotten it too, you would want to know how to avoid those nasty “You never do anything romantic” arguments. So put into practice what you read here and watch her glow with love for you!
She is #1
Women love to feel they are number one on your list of priorities. Always. Anyone who is in love would want that I reckon. Neither would you like to be after her mother, her sister, her shopping trips, her dog… Therefore, now the shoe is on your foot, so empathise and give up going out with your guy friends once in awhile, just to be with her. She will be so thrilled in the knowledge that you chose to be with her that she will love you more and hush up on the complaint list. There are never any nevers, but you know what I mean.
Heap up the appreciation
When I say that I don’t mean you have to drown her in compliments, as she will sense when they are untrue anyway. Make her feel great about herself whether she is a glamorous bombshell or a plain Jane – the idea is the same. She needs appreciation for whatever she is doing for you, not to say that she is unsure or hesitant, but a ‘wow, what a flower arrangement’ will make her feel you have noticed her efforts and acknowledged them positively and she’ll be putty in your hands. The habits women love are those that are considerate of their feelings.
Call her often
No, she doesn’t want a telethon; a quick ‘hello-what-are-you-doing, my plans-are … ’ is enough to make her feel that you have made the effort to call her. Calling is important for the health of a relationship and is one of the many habits women love. Women tend to be communicative creatures, and to nurture your relationship, it would be nice to talk as often as possible. The only catch is that you need to be a willing partner here.
Women love being surprised especially once she has settled down into a comfortable relationship. Actually more so then! When you surprise her with an unexpected gift or a date, she’ll feel like she’s found somebody really special. A woman can also be surprised by many seemingly benign things, like taking back a fashion magazine you know she loves to pour over or flowers.
Really listen to her
Women love to talk. And most men don’t want to. They rather read a newspaper or watch TV. But if you really want to know this lady, you will need to be a good listener as it is an essential part of getting to know one another. Listen, ask questions and remember what she’s said. You’ll find out so much more about her that you’ll be hooked and only want to know more.
Paying attention doesn’t only apply to listening either. It’s all the better if you notice her haircut, that she looks upset or that she’s excited about something small. Paying attention means that you care about what’s going on with her, and there’s no bigger compliment than that.
