Girls we’ve all been there. There are just so many things we want to tell our boyfriends, but it’s such a socially awkward thing to do. There are just some things that can’t be expressed any other way. To which effect we decided to make relationships easier and help out all the boys with a few tips and tricks of WHAT GIRLS REALLY WANT!
1. Watch her favourite movie a million times over!
It’s the movie she watches in sickness, in health, on a cold Christmas morning and when she’s sad, you need to get on board. It might be predictable, it might be cheesy AF, but it’s just a movie.
2. A little PDA doesn’t hurt anyone.
Don’t be the guy who drools all over her at parties and glues his lips to hers, but be the guy who has an arm around her every now and then, done so effortlessly that it looks like something you do without much thought. Hold her hand when you cross the road, it isn’t because she can’t cross alone, it’s because she doesn’t have to.
3. Surprise her.
She doesn’t need you to be a stalker and follow her around, surprising her at every corner. She needs you to be the guy who tries hard to get out of office half an hour early to make it to dinner or pick her up from her work.
4. Suggest meeting her parents.
There is an unspoken dating law about meeting parents, meet only after atleast 6 months. She wants you to want to meet her parents. It’s not something that she wants as an obligation but she genuinely wants you to love her enough that you want to meet her family.
5. Introduce her with tags and everything.
When you’re at a party, don’t introduce her as a part of a group. She wants you to introduce her as your girlfriend, she wants people to know, not in a tacky, let’s-change-Facebook-status way but as a meet-your-colleagues-and-friends-as-your-girlfriend way. So don’t hesitate or choke on the word ‘girlfriend’.
6. Give her something personal.
She doesn’t want an expensive necklace, she doesn’t need your money to prove your love. Instead she’d love for you to make a gift really personal, it could be burning a CD with her favourite songs for your own car, so she gets to control the music, it could be a pair of earings in the shape of a boat, to remember your first trip together.
7. Get flowers/food delivered to her at work.
The best part about love is feeling loved. Show her you think about her, send her some orchids at work or better yet, be less cheesy and send her some brownies instead. Chocolate never goes unnoticed.
8. Just Listen.
She’s a grown up, she has problems, she needs your attention. She needs to know you will be there for her when she’s low. She needs you to be around and just listen to her, while she whines about her boss, her friends, her job, her parents. She doesn’t need you to advice her, she just needs you around, to be there when shit gets ugly.
9. Tell her where you see the relationship going.
She hates asking you ‘Where do you think this is going?’, as much as you hate answering it. So instead save everyone the awkward conversion and mention it casually. Involve her in your future plans, when you talk about moving to a new city, talk about how she will have a cupboard of her own in your new house, so she can keep her stuff for all the weekends she visits.
10. Talk to her waay moree.
Picking up her call while watching a football match does not count as conversation. There aren’t a fixed number of times you need to call her in a day. Call her when something reminds you of her, send her links to things that make her laugh. Tell her about what bothers you, what you love or don’t, how your day was, about how your friends reacted when you told them about her. She wants to be your person, so let her.
