Common sense should tell most guys what to do to keep their girl happy. Whether it’s a new relationship, long-term or marriage. The rules are all pretty much the same. If you have a girl, you’d be wise to learn how to keep her happy. With you that is. This is because it’s a nice and good thing to do, but also because if your girl is happy, you’ll likely be happy too. Below are ten excellent tips on how to keep your wife or girlfriend happy.
1 – Treat her with respect. Always. This should go without saying, but it’s here because a lot of guys tend to start forgetting about respecting their girl after they’ve grown to know them over time and have observed first hand some of the annoying things their girl does. It also happens sometimes just because people become so familiar with having someone in their life. But in reality, none of that should matter, because if you want to keep your girl happy with you, it starts with being respectful to her. Especially when you’re angry, depressed or getting rather full of yourself. As an added tip here. Never, ever compare her to another woman.
2 – Tell her how you feel about her. It doesn’t matter if you’ve known her ten minutes, or ten year. Or a hundred. Women need to know how you feel. And they need to hear it on a regular basis. This is assuming you do still like her of course, otherwise, you really don’t need this list at all. It’s time to either rediscover the things you once liked about her, or go your separate ways.
3 – Show her how you feel about her. This one takes a little more effort. It’s easy to talk. Doing things that demonstrate that you care about someone takes action. Hold the door for her. Help her with some insignificant thing. Hold her hand. Look into her eyes when she’s talking to you. In short, if you’re still smitten with your girl, act like it. Do stuff you know will show her how you feel.
4 – Pay attention. Notice what she says. What she does. Follow what’s going on in her life and acknowledge as much by responding to things she’s said. Watch her body language. If you pay attention, you’ll very rarely be surprised by things she says or does. Plus she’ll notice all these things, and it will make her happy.
5 – Support her. Always be on her side. Yeah, even when she’s wrong. Help her out when she needs it. Go out of your way to do things that show you mean it when you say you support her. Act like whatever she wants or needs is just as important as what you want or need.
6 – Get to know her. Really know her. Don’t stop asking questions just because you think you know everything about her. You don’t. Listen to her opinions and views. Have long conversations. Engage with her. Be a good listener and share what’s going on with you too. Never stop observing and wondering. Woman truly are mysterious and wonderful creatures. The more you get to know her, the more you’ll want to know.
7 – Be kind and patient. And polite. Never, ever call your girl an ugly name, or belittle her. Nobody likes that, and it will make her not like you so much. Also, don’t sweat the small stuff. Arguing with your girl will very rarely get you what you want anyway. All it will do is make you both angry and resentful. In short, treat her like you did when you were wooing her.
8 – Learn when to help. Everyone needs help sometimes. And the thing is, getting help from someone is so much more rewarding when you don’t have to ask for it. If she’s doing something, offer to help, no matter what it is. If she wants your help, she’ll accept. If not, get out of her way.
9 – Don’t delineate jobs. No good will come out of setting up ‘his’ and ‘her’ jobs. Whether it’s washing dishes or paying the bills. While it’s true that quite often in relationships, certain jobs or tasks seem to become the responsibility of one or the other over time, this doesn’t mean that either has to do it. Doing so means taking the other for granted, and that never leads to happiness. As an added note, don’t feel like you need to take over everything because you don’t like how she does it. This will cause her to feel like you don’t trust her.
10 – Give her the bathroom. Just give it to her. Let her decorate it however she chooses. Let her do whatever she wants in there for as long as she wants without comment. Let her have her privacy. Pretend you’re a guest when you’re in there. It’s hers, treat the place with respect.
These ten excellent tips on how to keep your wife or girlfriend happy can go a very long way when used often and generously. Your wife or girlfriend will be happier. You’ll be happier, and your relationship will be every so much more fulfilling then if you don’t. So, if you’re a man and are reading this in hopes of keeping your girl happy, I hope this has helped.
