You just have to express what you genuinely feel about your boyfriend. Yet, if you feel like going that extra mile for pleasing him, you can indeed go through these tips on how to be a good girlfriend.
Women tend to devote all of their time to their new relationship, while men only think of it as an addition to their existing ones. However, that does not mean that your boyfriend does not want to spend time with you, but he sure needs his own space.
In the initial stages of a relationship, your boyfriend may like it when you turn to him for help, for every petty reason, however he may get irritated, if you make it a habit. Instead, show him that you can look after yourself and can handle problems without having to rely on him.
It is best if you make yourself financially independent as well. Not only will it help you to support yourself but it will also garner your boyfriend's respect and appreciation.
Obviously, nobody expects you to enjoy his activities as much as he does, but your willingness to share his interest will make your boyfriend very happy. Sacrificing a romantic flick for a football match, once a while, can help you build a healthy relationship, without you knowing it.
However, you can always communicate your feelings and expectations. Being honest about your expectations from the relationship will help both of you to understand where your relationship stands.
Don't confront him if some chick checks out your guy because it is not his fault. Instead, be happy that you are dating a guy, most girls would be desperate to be with. Similarly, don't hack his passwords and read his mails or text messages. Such behavior may make you look like a desperate person who feels insecure about her relationship.
Don't Be a Control Freak
Most girls try to get the control of the relationship by trying to change something about their boyfriends. Criticizing his looks, clothes, habits can really turn him off. Just as you wouldn't want to change yourself for anyone, your boyfriend also loves himself the way he is.
Always remember that you fell for him for what he is. If there is something unpleasant about him or his appearance, give him subtle hints, don't ever yell at him for that will make the matter worse.
Men do not believe in expressing their feelings the way women do, hence be patient if your boyfriend seems in a somber mood and refuses to talk to you. Do not frustrate him by asking too many questions. Just leave him alone, he'll himself come back to you whenever he feels like talking about whatever was bothering him.
Use your common sense ladies, would he be with you, if he never loved you in the first place? Do not expect your boyfriend to profess his love for you, all the time. And for God's sake, refrain from asking him 'how much?' if he ever bothers to answer your first question.
Being a good girlfriend is really not that difficult if you let your guy get some life and learn to get some yourself. You may feel like you are sacrificing some things in the process of becoming a good girlfriend but remember these small sacrifices go a long way in cementing your relationship. Of course, all this, only if you think he is the one!
