Tips on Keeping a Man interested

How to be a Good Girlfriend or Wife? Given below are some tips on keeping a Guy interested in you forever.

1) Stop being too possessive and desperate: If you have the habit of clinging to your guy always, calling your partner every half an hour or question him on his every action stop doing so immediately. Being too possessive and desperate would sooner or later make your guy get tired of you and dump you.

2) Be practical and realistic: A successful relationship to a greater extend depend on how well you understand your partner. You would be chasing your guy away if you demand your guy to be with you always. Remember that your guy has a life other than you too. Your Partner needs to devote time for his Professional and family entanglements. Give your Partner enough breathing space. After all, distance makes the heart grow fonder.

3) Express your Love: Your Partner needs the words too. Do something special for him, write a love letter, buy him a gift or give him a surprise depending on your partner’s moods and likes. Even a simple ‘I love you’ can do wonders to your love life. The surprise element in relationship gets it going so do not forget to through pleasant surprises at him once in a while when he least expect it. Never forget a special day in his life.

4) Spend Quality Time: Spend quality time with your Partner. Try loving your partner than fight with him or irritate him. Many times when both are working it is quite difficult to devote time to each other during week days. Compensate for it during the weekends. Go for an outing with your partner or have a heart to heart talk with him. Married couples can at least try doing something together on a daily basis like having breakfast or dinner together or have at least a 10 minute talk before going to bed or getting up from bed. Remember that good communication is a vital element for any relationship to survive.

5) Never vent your Anger and Frustrations at your Partner: We tend to do this very often when we had a bad day at work or someone made you angry we talk to our partner in a sullen manner or mostly vent our anger and frustration with a verbal bashing. Instead sit down and try sharing your problem with your partner or just plainly ask him for a hug. I have done the hug trick several times and it works! Mostly when I am upset I put my head on my guy’s shoulders or take a hug from him for a minute or two before talking about it.

6) Dress up: Men like groomed women. Keep your self beautiful and attractive. Take special care in the way you look and dress up. Try to stay clean and look your best always. Have a scented bath, wear a nice perfume, give yourself a makeover or even wear a special dress for him. Many wives open the door for their husbands with flour in hands and face or with a kitchen knife in hand.

7) Jealousy : One of the tried and tested methods of winning the guy who does not divert his love and attention to you is ignore him a little or make him jealous by mingling with other attractive men.

8) Overall Behavior: It is your overall behavior or personality which attracts your partner to you. If your guy did a mistake rather than attacking him first try analyzing the situation and most likely you would find that you are responsible too for his behavior. Try developing as many good qualities in you and eliminating the negatives in your behavior.The key of lasting relationships is in our own hands. Discover it and make use of it. If you do it then the chances are that your guy would be hooked to you for life.

    Im far from perfect. Im only human, i made a mistake, i dnt even think its really a big deal, but my husband is being rude to me, im 4 mnths preg and hes constantly making me cry, hes yelling at me , hes basicly taking advantage of me because i wont leave. Im stronger than that. How do i make it work , should i just back off and he will come when hes ready.

    I understand that you want your man to be hook on you. What if you did this and he not hook on you. It not about hooking men! It about making men respect you as a woman and not to settle for anything less. Men play many mind games on Ladies of all ages. Ladies it time that you learn men games and turn it back on him. All men play games to a point. Ladies you have the power! We were told or brought up believes men have all power they do not. Ladies remember these men want what you have. Do not settle for anything but the best.

    If something does bother you, it's never wise to just act like it doesn't. Yea, it may make him stick around, because you are the easiest chick ever. He can get away with just about anything and be a complete ass who ignored you the past couple days and you are supposed to greet him with a smile and be overly excited to see him. Because if you get upset with him and ask where he was or what he was doing that made him too busy, he's going to freak out and walk off right? If you are unhappy with how he is... don't waste your time anymore, be with someone who will be concerned with your feelings too. you shouldn't have to bottle up all your feelings in order to keep a guy. What kind o relationship is that anyway? I agree give a guy space, but if he's not calling you for a couple days with no reason as to why... you are in a RELATIONSHIP you have a freaking right to know where he was at! that's just my opinion.. now i you just started dating it's different. but if you've been together for quite awhile than yea... speak your mind in a healthy way.

    A man either loves you or he does not. There is nothing you can do to make a man love but you can be yourself and try to enjoy your life.

    hi Anamika,

    Very well written. I concur will all of your articles. Lots of time we as women don't try and understand or listen to the man in our life. I have been single for a long time, by choice after a divorce.

    I have had lots of time to experience the relationship that my friends are all in and the problems they are having.

    I have just met a man and he has basically stressed the many points that you have in your articles as to how he wish women can be in a relationship.

    So Thank you for them! I will apply some of these many exercise to us building a productive relationship.

    Very well written content. Discovering how to keep my guy hooked to me forever...I especially like the "Jealousy" tip. Do you think the next time we go out...I should wear a mini and flirt with other men? Or would this be going to far?

    Thanks for the incite!

    Very well written, Anamika. In my own marriage, I think humor was a factor in our happiness. A couple needs to laugh together, share jokes together and be able to see the silliness of some arguments together. Many times, I kept my mouth shut when my husband was ranting and later, when in a better mood, I would give my opinion in a way that made him laugh. It worked out better and less major arguments that way.

    Im new to this hubpage thing, but very well written article. The only one i would not agree on is #5. I like to see a woman that feels passionate about something that forces her to feel the need to vent to her "soulmate". If you cant vent to them, who can you vent to? Your friends will listen, but they don't really care. lol. just my opinion. Thanx for the read.

    I think no 6 - dress up? Is so much more important specially when you have been married for a decade or so.
