Read on for universal male truths that can save your relationship and your sanity.
I don’t know what the biggest relationship concern was back in the days of touch-tone phones, but these days, it’s all about a guy’s texting habits: why he used to text so much in the beginning and then stopped, why he takes so long to reply, why he disappears for days at a time, why his texts are so short, etc., etc.
I tell him all the time to bring me flowers and call me more and take me out and nothing changes!I have been writing about relationships for a while now and over the years I have noticed some prominent points of confusion, ones that seem to be shared by women of all ages from all around the world (no exaggeration).I can relate to all the questions we receive on a personal level because once upon a time, I too was banging my head against the table in an effort to understand .You measure the depth of a relationship by the of the time you spend with that person.You can spend all day going back and forth with some guy about nonsense.When he does something you like and appreciate, acknowledge it and reward him for it.Show him how happy it made you when he did such and such.If you want to know where he really stands, pay closer attention to what he’s doing and put less emphasis on what he is and isn’t saying.
