Tips on Relationships for Men

The following tips on relationships for men could literally save your relationship. They are so common sense that they are often overlooked. So, if you are starting to feel like she is near packing her bags, then try these tips out and save your relationship. Trust me, if you think you can read her mind, you’re probably wrong, but, if you practice these tips on relationships for men, you will get your just reward, if you know what I mean!

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” Brandi Snyder

Here are the 3 Simple Tips on Relationships for Men

1. Let me Hear the Love!

Yes, you went out of your way and bought her something special, but did you tell her why? How about this, "Hey babe, I know you have been wanting this, so I picked it up for you today (now here is the important part she wants) because I Love You." A good woman will truly appreciate the thought behind the gift, but go ahead and put the icing on the cake and say, "I love you." Many women do not feel loved unless they hear I love you often. You see, many women continually re-evaluate their relationships a lot more than men. If you do not say it, then she just might think your feelings have changed. So go ahead and tell her in so many words that you love her.

If you are not used to saying it, then make a point of thanking her for something routine like making dinner or acknowledging something she’s done well. Here is a good one--“I want you to know that I appreciate and love everything you do for me.”

2. Listen, Listen, Listen!

Imagine starting an important conversation with your girlfriend or wife only to notice her staring into space as you talk. Would you feel a little rejected? Make a huge effort to put aside what you are doing and really listen when she is talking to you. Tips on relationships for men are a dime a dozen, but this one will be expensive if you don’t LISTEN. Get it!

We all need to be heard! If she is interrupting a game or something you really want to finish, then explain to her that you really want to hear what she has to say so can we talk as soon as I am done here. This is my number one relationship advice men. Try hard to take it! Listen when she speaks.

3. Is Honesty the Best Policy?

No, it is not. While I would never encourage an outright lie, a little tact and diplomacy can go a long way towards keeping the peace. Here is a BIG example (no pun intended). "Do I look fat in this?" Careful now! How about, "I cannot say. You look good to me no matter what you wear." A little avoidance here, but you will probably get a smile.

Being tactful can go a long way in keeping things light, but she should know about things that seriously bother you so compromise can be achieved. Too many couples let things go until they explode. Be tactful and look for the right time to bring these things up. Timing is everything!

Relationships are a two-way street, and the more you meet in the middle the better. If one gives too much, then things get out of balance and things will explode at some point. Here is one more tip, tell her you have been seeking advice on how to make your relationship with her even better and suggest she too seeks out some relationship advice about men. As your relationship grows, continue to seek out tips on relationships for men from a variety of sources and your relationship will sail on smoother water.
