Relationships can be extremely rewarding and can keep you happy forever. And of course the first step to being in a fulfilling relationship is to find the right guy for yourself, because the wrong one is just going to make your life miserable. But what should you do once you have a boyfriend? Are there certain sets of rules and regulations that you need to follow in order to keep him in your life?
* Show him appreciation
Never take him for granted. If he means a lot to you, then instead of keeping it all inside yourself, why don’t you show it to him? It doesn’t necessarily have to be during your honeymoon phase you can easily do it all the time. Give surprise gifts, back hug him, cater to his interests and hobbies, make out passionately, cook him something good, etc.
* Give lots of kisses
And when I say kisses, I don’t mean the ones that involve tongue, but the ones that are pure and innocent the kisses on the lips. Kiss him in private, and kiss him in public. Kiss him before he leaves for work and kiss when you’re in the theatre watching your favorite movie. Surprise him with kisses, but make sure you don’t overdo it to an extent where your kisses mean nothing to him.
When you’re wrong, obviously. It shows him that you put him and your relationship above your ego, and it’s going to mean a lot to him.
* Never criticize him on social media
Girls, please. That’s one of the top rules of having a boyfriend. If you have a problem, discuss it in private. There is zero need to air your dirty laundry in front of everybody. It not only shows the world you’re having trouble in your relationship, but also backs your man into a corner, which will result in him being aggressive and defensive towards you. Even in public.
* Ignored texts are okay
Only every once in a while, of course. Look, it’s impossible for him to be free enough to constantly respond to your texts when you send them. No need to blow your top. Be patient and try to understand why he didn’t respond. However, if he ignores most of the texts you send him, sure. Go ahead. Roast him.
