Everybody makes mistakes in relationships. I will tell you the common mistakes guys make in relationships. The main problem is that you often don’t know it.
How can you fix a problem that you are unaware of?
Here, you have a list of the biggest mistakes in a relationship.
1 – Becoming Complacent
Nothing is forever. Everything needs daily work. It could be a career, your health or love.
It means constant effort that may seem a lot but in the long term has huge rewards.
In other words, don’t assume that once you have a girlfriend or wife, everything is done.
This is a typical mistake. The courtship never ends.
You need to keep dating. Once in a while organize something especial, and don’t tell her. It should be a fun experience and also a surprise. As it is said, you need to “keep the flame burning.”
2 – Stopping Doing What You Like
When some guys get a girlfriend, they stop doing certain activities. For example, they stop going to the gym, meeting with friends, visiting family, etc.
Never stop doing that, even if she wants you to stop doing it.
When a girl likes you, she wants your attention all the time. Even if you feel the same, it is a bad idea in the long term.
Each person needs space and different hobbies. Besides, spending some time apart is also a way to miss each other.
3 – Not Leading The Relationship
In a couple, you need to talk about everything.
But the man has the unwritten duty to lead the relationship – where to have dinner, what to do, etc. – which means all the respect in the relationship.
Being a leader ISN’T the same as being a boss. Everything should be discussed with your partner, and you also need to read between lines.
But in the end, you have to make the decision you consider right, even if your partner disagrees.
4 – Doing Things You Don’t Like
When you are with someone, you always have to be flexible and do things you don’t like.
Like in anything, it is important to have a balance. If you always say “yes,” you will be in a bad mood.
Also, some people will take advantage of this, and we will look weak.
It is crucial to learn to say NO.
5 – Not listening to her
Men make the mistake of wanting to fix everything. Women think differently.
When your girlfriend or wife tells you about a problem she has, don’t try to fix it.
Just listen to her and encourage her to talk more. Again, DON’T give her solutions. It can sound crazy, but this is how it is.
Women need to be heard. Offer her your opinion only if she asks for it.
The female and male brains work differently. Understanding this will save you from many problems.
6 – Women Need To Feel Safe
One of the things women appreciate the most is self-confidence. If you are full of fears and doubts, women will not respect you or trust you, and they definitely will not love you.
This requires a lot of self-work, and it’s impossible to talk about it in a short article.
The main point is to fight against your fears. Easy, right? No, it’s not, but this is how it is.
