If you are looking for ways to improve your relationship with your guy, I can help you out. These are not even complicated things. These are quick and easy things that don’t take a lot of thought or time but the payoffs are big when you commit to them. Try these ways to improve your relationship and see what a difference it can make.
1. Laugh Together
There is nothing as great as laughing together in a relationship. It means you are having fun together and sharing special moments. As simple as this is, it is one of the best ways to improve your relationship. Share funny stories about your day with your guy. Tell him a joke you heard. Your relationship will benefit.
2. Don’t Man Bash
We tend to think that man bashing is harmless because our guy never knows about it. Even if he will never know, it isn’t harmless. Man bashing makes you feel negative toward the guy in your life and this can spill over into your relationship. Don’t give in to the temptation to participate when your girlfriends start this. If they ask why you are not participating, explain that you have noticed it doesn’t leave you with the warm fuzzies afterward so you stopped. Who knows, you may inspire them to stop as well.
3. Accept Him as He is
As simplistic a lesson as it is, it can take us a long time to really learn this. You cannot change your guy or anyone else, for that matter. Of course we all have room for improvement and if there is something your guy really does that bothers you, you can mention it. But trying to enforce it will only cause ill will between the two of you. Accepting your guy just as he is will make his love for you even stronger.
4. Look at the Positives
This is probably the hardest one of this whole list. However, it still comes down to a simple choice. Do you want to look at the positives about your relationship of the negatives? Looking at the positives will likely improve your relationship while looking at the negatives will likely worsen it. Your frame of mind matters greatly here.
5. Do Something Fun Together
You need to be able to have fun together when you are in a relationship. There are a zillion ways you can do this. Go to a ball game, see a movie, take a walk and talk. You can do a lot of different things for the goal of having fun. Whatever appeals to you is fine here.
6. Let Him Choose the Restaurant
You know, a lot of times, guys let the girl choose the restaurant. This is really a very gentlemanly thing to do but on occasion it is a good idea to tell him you would love if he chose. This allows him to get to go where he wants to eat and you can feel good about yourself for giving him this simple little gift. Of course, you would want to tell him up front if there is any place you just could not deal with eating. It is fun to switch things up for a change by letting him choose.
7. Buy Him a Gift
Holiday gifts are special and mean a lot but I think just because gifts mean even more. They are unexpected and therefore become more memorable. It can be any number of things. You could pick up his favorite cologne or a tool you know he has been wanting. It can even be something as simple as his favorite candy or cookies. Just knowing that you thought about him is going to have a positive impact on your relationship.
These simple little things can make your relationship even better. What things do you already do to improve things in your relationship? I would love to hear from you!
