Sure, biologically guys are programmed to be in control. But this doesn't mean you should become his lap dog. Or that you rely on him to make every single decision. If he has to decide everything for you from where to eat to what to do next Saturday night, he'll become super bored, or worse, annoyed very quickly. He chose to be with you because of who you are. Keep being that strong, independent woman and watch as it draws him in deeper!
Keep Living YOUR Life
Early on, it can be hard to resist spending every waking moment with your lover. But resist you must! Because even though he says he wants to be around you non-stop and do every little thing together, your man will miss and crave you more when you're not around.
You had your own exciting, adventurous life before he came along. Don't stop living it just because now he's in your life. Go grab a cocktail with the girls, take yoga three times a week or getaway over the weekend - he'll be begging to be with you when you get back.
We all have dreams. But guys in particular are big dreamers. Whether your man is trying to start a business, going back to college, or becoming an EDM DJ, show some support for his dreams. Even if they seem totally unrealistic, shattering his dreams by putting them down is a sure-fire way he'll choose them over you.
Having you in his corner supporting him every step of the way is one of the deepest ways the two of you will connect. It's a building block of real long-term commitment. It shows you'll be by his side along the journey - a big psychological boost.
As you settle into life as a couple, it's easy to forget the little things like saying "thank you". But you'd be surprised how much this little show of appreciation does for commitment. Take a moment to say a small thank you, whether it's for cleaning up, picking up something from the store, or pulling your chair out for you.
