To Stop Threatening Each Other Don't threaten to leave him, and definitely don't threaten to hurt him. It's the worst thing you could ever do.

Trouble is, my best friends are guys:/

I feel differently... especially because it's a scientific fact that we tell "little white lies" to our partners every day of the week. That said, of course he's not going to tell you that dress makes you look fat! "Where are you going?", "Oh, you forgot to text me when you went to check the mail and take Schnookums out for a poo-poo!", etc. is going to absolutely suffocate men... and that's not going to work. Wouldn't we hate it? Besides, how can you text him when you're getting a mani-pedi and texting your gf's in- between? 😉 Get the gist? I've seen open relationships last years, ones with a little more secrecy hold on for longer than we've been born- regardless of your age! Trust me, there's a pearl of wisdom in remembering that whether it comes to diet, coffee, movies, or relationships, to each HER own.

Another thing should be to never get your priorities mixed up. If you truly love him, then please, please don't forget about his feelings and end up unintentionally ignoring him. I learned this the hard way...

Great advide😊

I tried teaching Mt ex these things but he just didn't think he had 2 let me know when he went out on the town nor did he think communication everyday was important. Too bad. Had 2 let it go.


Done some of these and it's the same result.

Well never be an open book either they cant know everything!

Good advice

Btw how does one put their image in?! Tried!
