There is no specific textbook to teach men and women how to act in a relationship, as everybody is different. That being said, it is always important to stay true to who you are and to the principles you truly believe in, and to always act as your heart dictates you to act. However, there are several useful tips that can be beneficial for men who are either in a relationship, or who are looking forward to committing to somebody anytime soon. Here are the top 5 best relationship advices for men:
1. Make Her Your Best Friend And Always Appreciate Her
Perhaps the most important piece of advice you can get is to treat your partner with the utmost respect. Remember that she is your best friend, first and foremost, and only after that she is your girlfriend, your fiancé or your wife. Make her feel loved and appreciated, and don’t ever make her feel neglected.
One of the most common mistakes some men tend to do these days is that once they get the woman they have been pursuing, they simply start to neglect her. That being said, if you were willing to go an extra mile to impress your woman when you first met her, make sure to keep it that way, otherwise your relationship will slowly start to decline. Never take the things you have for granted, as tomorrow is not promised!
2. Stop Any Negative Reactions Before They Even Happen
One of the biggest problems that tend to happen with men these days is that they are very responsive to stress, and they switch to the defensive mode in an instant whenever they feel attack. That, combined with the high ego of some women is the recipe for disaster. Try not to be too demanding and never project your insecurities or your negative thoughts on your woman, as that will only push her away. Biologically speaking, men tend to be more responsive to stress and anger than women – from that point and until a huge argument ignites, there is only small step. Prevention is the best treatment!
3. Know When To Listen
We all know that women want to be listened to, and this has already become a movie cliché - the man comes home from work, she has changed her hair color or has an important matter to discuss with him, and he doesn't even look at her, letting alone listening to what she has to say. Women try to voice their problems and concerns, and they expect you to listen to them - which is perfectly normal, as communication is the foundation of every healthy and long-lasting relationship.
However, if you stop listening to her, then she will stop talking and informing you about her concerns. When you do not discuss the problems that concern you, they start to grow silently until they explode, and when they do it is usually too late for you to save your marriage or relationship. Don't let that happen!
4. Take Her By Surprise!
Everybody loves a sudden surprise, and women are no exception to the rule. It does not even have to be a big or expensive surprise, just a small symbolic thing that shows your love, care and appreciation towards her. Make sure to surprise her as often as you can, without having any reason in particular. Do not buy her gifts only for Christmas and her birthday, and never wait to make a mistake to buy her flowers. Take her by surprise all of a sudden, and you will see all the joy, happiness and gratitude in her eyes – it will only make her love you more, and it will also make you feel complete!
5. Show Some Respect!
This is by far the most important piece of advice a man can get when it comes to relationships. Respect your woman and make her feel like she truly is the only girl in the world. Never stare at other women when you are in public, especially not when you are with her. Also, always be honest with her even if it is hurtful – in the end, everybody loves a good and honest truth than a sweet lie. Be straightforward and always tell her what you think, remember that nobody is a mind reader and she cannot guess that is going on in your head unless you let her know – and this actually goes both ways.
