So you have now found your true love and want to have a good relationship that will last a lifetime? It can be easy for a girl to get herself into a relationship, but the hard part is maintaining it and making it last. Often most girls in relationships end up with their relationship or love being compromised and eventually ending due to common mistakes that can be avoided.
Girls who are in relationships try to dress well and make themselves look good in order to impress their partners. However, you need to understand that a man who is looking for a serious relationship needs more than your physical attributes. Men want to spend the rest of his lives with a woman who treats them and their family well and is able to perform her duties as a spouse and mother.
In this article, we have rounded up 6 qualities of a good girlfriend that men look for.
- Being Faithful
This is a very important requirement in every relationship. As a girl, you must be loyal and faithful to your boyfriend. Being faithful does not only mean not cheating or flirting with other men but also implies supporting your partner in all of his dreams and aspirations. You also need to stand by your man in every situation, good or bad
2. Being a Good Listener
Life isn’t a bed of roses; sometimes it will be smooth and sometimes it will be tough. Although men are regarded as tough, they still need a shoulder to lean on when they’re down. And that is the role of you, as his girlfriend. One way to give your man a shoulder to lean on is to be always willing to listen to his problems. Even if you can’t give any solution to his struggles, it really helps them by just having somebody who listens to their frustrations or rants.
3. Making him a Part of Your World
Another attribute of a good girlfriend is making your man a part of your life. This doesn’t mean being with him 24/7; it means introducing him to all your friends and family. By doing this, it means you have accepted him and he is not a secret part of your life.
4. Treating other people well
No man would want to spend the rest of his life with someone who cannot treat a housekeeper or street sweeper with kindness and respect. Men want a girl who is kind and respectful to other people especially their family. This shows him that that you love the people he loves and you’re ready to be a part of his family.
5. Giving him his Space.
A clingy girlfriend is a big turn-off. This is often seen in teen relationships where a girl is so insecure or obsessed with love that she can give her boyfriend the space he needs. While constantly texting or calling him may be okay at the beginning of your relationship, it can get boring and irritating pretty soon. So if you don’t stop that obsessive behavior of demanding for your man’s attention, then he will want to break up to breath. Whether you’re married couples or courting, you need to trust your man and give him space to live his life. A day or two away from him will make his heart grow fonder and this will strengthen your relationship.
6. Being Nice to His Friends
The way to a man’s heart is not only through his stomach but through his friends as well. Just like women, men really care what their close friends think of the woman they are dating. If they don’t want to hear her name or be around her, then it becomes harder for him to deal with. A man wants a girl who he can comfortably spend time with her together with his friends.
So if you want to be a good girlfriend to him, then make friends with his friends. Don’t be too close to them in a way that can upset him but just be nice to them.
There are many more ways to be a good girlfriend your man but the ones listed above can get you started. When trying a new thing, pay attention to his reaction. If he doesn’t to be given space, then you don’t have to. Just understand him and do what you think he likes.
