Relationship Tips for Girls

Sujata Iyer Apr 29, 2019
There is no amount of tips that can actually make a final difference in the way we handle our relationships. However, this information will make an attempt to outline some of the most fundamental tips that we, as women, tend to ignore.
There's no one in the world who pays heed to advice given by anyone. We all listen to people telling us what we should do, why we should do it, and how we should do it, but let's face it, in the end, we all do exactly what we wanted to in the first place, whatever was our first instinct.
It's the same when it comes to dishing out relationship advice. We have no idea what another person's relationship is all about, so we can't really be the ones to give 'expert' advice on how they should handle it. Nevertheless, there are definitely some universally accepted tips that are genuinely important as far as girls in relationships are concerned.

Tips for a Healthy Relationship

Though the crux is to give some suggestions to young girls about how they can conduct themselves when they are in a relationship, there's not much difference between a girl and a woman in love (except maybe the age). So they can be treated as general pointers on how to keep your relationship emotionally strong.

Be Friends

Jeremy Taylor, the wise clergyman from Britain once said that Love is friendship set on fire. This is definitely one of the most revolutionizing quotes that can be taken to heart. When you're in a relationship, there has to be some level of camaraderie between the two of you.
Not all of us are fortunate enough to fall in love with our best friend, but we can surely see to it that the person we fall in love with is a good friend to us. There exists a very thin line between being a good friend and being a good partner.
When the relationship between two friends loses its platonic status for pure love, you know that there can be no better combination of souls than two people who love each other as much as friends, as they do as partners. So be his buddy, involve him in stuff that goes on in your life that he may have an interest in.
At the same time, don't overdo it. Don't smother him with your constant presence. Give him the space he needs and you take yours. You must realize that he's with you because he loves you more as a partner than as a friend, so don't ever compromise on that.

Patience Is the Key

If there's one tip that will hold true even if the entire universe came to an end, it is that patience is the key to a healthy relationship. It doesn't mean let yourself be taken for granted. Give your relationship a chance. There are women who give up on their men so easily. The minute they see a threatening sign, they throw in the towel and call it quits.
The reasons may seem very justified, but this is for all those girls who think that they've finally found someone who they can consider sharing a life with. It sometimes takes forever to find that perfect fit for your hand, and if you think you've found the hand that fits yours perfectly, don't let it slip out of yours easily.
Fight for it, fight with it. Stand by it and stand for it. Don't let petty differences get in the way of something that could very well be the most perfect relationship of your life. So hang in there, through all his antics and his mood swings, firmly grounding your position in his life at the same time. There's no way you can lose.

Earn Respect

Respect is something that is grossly underestimated in relationships these days. This comes from people having very easily learned to take their partners for granted. While many may deny it, the truth is that if we take a long hard look at our relationships, we'll realize that there's been at least one point when we have taken or have been taken for granted.
When someone is taken for granted, he or she begins to fester a resentment towards the partner. This manifests itself in other forms. This resentment may be conscious or unconscious, but it does exist. When there is a resentment of any kind brewing in a relationship, there are bound to be problems.
All this because one partner did not give the due respect to his or her partner. Mind you, women are not always the victims here, so first take that thought straight out of your mind. If you want to be respected by your guy, the feeling needs to be reciprocated. There's no other way a relationship can survive.

Be There

Men need our attention as much as we do theirs. Women love it when men send them flowers and cook them a wonderful meal once in a while. If you feel so nice when they do it for you, they're also going to feel special when you do something for them.
Simple things like a shoulder massage after a hard day at work, not nagging him about the towel on the floor or how he's always late, etc., will go a long way in fortifying your relationship. These are the little things that you can do only after your relationship has reached that level of comfort and understanding.
When your guy needs you, be there for him. See things from his perspective before fighting with him. Arguments are a very important part of a strong relationship, but not to the extent of having one almost everyday. Be his shoulder to cry on like he is yours. A perfect balance of emotional responsibility is one of the saving graces of any relationship.

Love With All Your Heart

All these tips can simply go for a toss if you don't simply love the guy in your life. Being in a relationship, loving someone for eternity is something that many people are terrified of. This whole 'commitment phobia' is simply overrated.
If you have the courage to get involved with someone, then you very well have the courage to see it through to the end. Nothing should stop you from giving all the love in your heart to that one person you want to spend your life with. So, give it your all, love like only you can love, and you'll be surprised by the joy you'll find.
To put it in a nutshell, the most fundamental tips are: be true to him and yourself, be his friend, be there for him when he needs you, respect him and yourself, and love him with all the love in your heart. Contrary to popular belief, it's not complicated!
