Girls, some of you might be wondering what went wrong with your last date and what you can do to fix your boyfriend’s mood. Then again, some of you may be nervous for your next date. But there is one thing common among both these situations – that you need to be a good girlfriend. Yes, it might have been your fault if you talked too much at your last date. For those of you who are nervous, there’s one step to overcome that nervousness and that is by being a good girlfriend. Here, we’ll tell you exactly how you can do that in a few simple steps.
1. Be yourself
This is a rule of thumb about being a good girlfriend. You have to first be yourself and realize what you are and then go out and try to charm somebody else. If you fake being someone you are absolutely not, you will only dig your grave deeper when your boyfriend or prospective boyfriend finds out about your fake nature. Be whatever you are, don’t shy away from that fact.
2. Don’t badger him constantly
This is what all boyfriends specifically hate and yet girls don’t seem to realize that they are warding off their boyfriends away from them. Do not be like a constant bee buzzing in his ear. He has agreed to be with you, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep nagging him on those things that don’t matter.
3. Give him space
You should also allow him some personal time alone. This doesn’t mean you don’t meet him, call him or text him for days on end. Just let him revel in his personal moments. In fact, this conveys to him that you are concerned about his needs too. If he’s had a tiff at office/college and doesn’t want to talk about it, it’s okay to let him relax and sleep rather than pestering him to tell you all about it. When he’s ready, he might probably tell you the next day.
4. Buy gifts
Buying gifts for him is another way to be a good girlfriend. You don’t need to shell out all your savings or pocket money to get him a really fancy gift. Gifting is a way to remind that person that you care for him. You could give him a handmade card, some flowers, chocolates, a tie and many such things. Also, it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to gift him. Surprises always work better.
5. Indulge in PDA
Public display of affection is always very welcoming for your boyfriend. A gentle hug, a kiss on the cheek, holding his hand, all these gestures go a long way in your relationship. But be careful and don’t overdo this by smothering him and being all over him. This will just make him uncomfortable.
6. Trust him
Yes, this is the most important thing that you should inculcate in yourself once you are in a relationship. You need to trust your boyfriend with all your heart. However, if you have doubts on him every now and then, it will lead you into a very unstable relationship.
7. Get tickets for his favorite game or band
Doing things that he likes or has interests in will earn you extra brownie points. One good way of doing this is by getting tickets to his favorite sports game or a concert featuring his favorite band. He will surely appreciate your efforts.
8. Don’t criticize his family
Everyone is attached with their respective families. So is your boyfriend. He may say negative stuff about his family if he’s angry or in a bad mood. But you should not criticize his family, come what may. It’s okay to discuss something about his family that you didn’t like. But don’t insult them outright.
9. Talk it out
If there are some problems in your relationship, the best way is to talk them out frankly. But you should not ever sulk and not talk to him for many days. This will only harm your relationship further.
10. Get to know his friends
This signifies that you are seriously interested in him and are making an effort to know his buddies too. Try and suggest some ways in which you can spend time with his friends like watching a match on TV at his home.
Remember, girls it’s not always about yourselves. Show your boyfriend you love and care for him and you’ve got it all going to become a good girlfriend.
