How to Keep A Man Interested: 3 Easy Steps

Everyday there are a ton of women inquiring about how to keep a man interested. There is no doubt, in today’s society, it can be hard to keep a man interested for a variety of reasons, including other women. Don’t let this discourage you from trying though. If you want to know how to keep a man interested, follow these three easy steps:

#1 Determine His Love Language

When it comes to how to keep a man interested, the first step is to find out what his love language is. There are different tests and questionnaires you can use to determine his love language, but you can also figure it out by just listening to him and observing his responses to different things.

Everyone “speaks” love in a different language. There are a few common love languages that most men speak. Find out what his love language and learn to speak it if you are serious about trying to keep a man interested. For example, his love language may be all about home cooked meals and quiet time alone. If you are always suggesting going out to dinner and hanging out with mutual friends, you’ll miss the target when it comes to how he feels “loved.” This is something that women commonly do and it results in their men becoming uninterested.

#2 Let His Mother Be His Mother

It’s natural for women to try and “mother” their man. It’s a woman’s natural tendency to help someone they love, whether they ask for the help or not. If this sounds like you, you need to stop trying to be his mother immediately. Most men have mothers and they are enough to get the job done!

The best way to avoid acting like his mother is to pay attention to how you ask him to do things. Don’t demand that he take out the trash, but rather ask, “Would you mind helping me about by taking out the trash this morning?” If you ask him to do things or give him guidance in a non-threatening way, it will be far better received. The last thing that will keep a man interested is a demanding and controlling woman.

#3 Get Interested in What Interests Him

If you want to know how to keep a man interested in you, you’ve got to be willing to be interested in what interests him! Think of it as a little game of “give and take.” Relationships boil down to compromise. Sometime you will have to do something that isn’t at the top of your “interest list” and other times it will be him having to do the same. Figure out what interests him when it comes to hobbies. Let him know that you would enjoy it if you could participate in one of his hobbies with him (even if it’s just a one time thing). Showing him that you care about what he cares about will cause him to remain interested in you and your relationship!

These are the best ways to keep a man interested! What are you waiting for? Try them out today and see his interest level rise immediately!

These are all good points in developing a lasting relationship. Especially that it "boils down to compromise." Quality relationships take a lot of work, but eventually it pays off big time. Good article Valerie.
