10 Mistakes Most Men Make In Relationships

7. Don’t take her presence for granted.

Men can be ridiculously single-minded. While women are known for multitasking. You might not really be able to take a page out of her book, but you can definitely plan your day to leave some her-time in there. It’s very easy to forget her when you are pursuing a newly-acquired hobby or trying to keep your wits with the promotion just around the corner. But for her, it is all about the fact that if she can devote some time to you, you should be able to do the same — taking us back to #1.

 

8. Trust is a must.

No relationship is going anywhere even if you manage to follow everything on this list, but for this one. Every other point on this is a fixable solution. This one is the hardest. It’s always going to be a turmoil if you are constantly breaking her trust, or find yourself mistrusting her. You cannot be hiding things that you know won’t go down well with her — don’t do them in the first place. Contrariwise, you cannot always be assuming the worst of her — yes, she can have a happy life when she is by herself. Yes, she can have platonic guy friends who enjoy her company.

Trust is an equal give-and-take business.

 

9. It’s a partnership and it’s sailing nowhere until you communicate.

Most men tend to keep their problems and troubles to themselves. Whether it be about their work or it is about their relationship. Women are sensitive to any emotional ups and downs you might be going through — and they expect you to tell them just like they tell you. When you don’t talk about it, it is equally frustrating to them as it is when you don’t ask them about what’s bothering them, as mentioned in #1 (again).

When you tell her about your problems, you give her an equal reign over it. Additionally, you also make her feel like her inputs are valued. That doesn’t mean you have to incessantly crib about everything that is going wrong in your life — too much of anything is toxic in itself. Keep it measured, keep it simple.

 

10. Keep the sparks glinting.

Finally, don’t let yourselves go. Doing something special or treating yourselves shouldn’t have to be a once in a year occasion. Women like things when they are spontaneous — and men are sticklers for planning meticulously. So, sure, plan a nice date in that new restaurant — but let her believe it was a spontaneous date. Let there be things happening. Flirt with her once in a while. Compliment her if she dresses-up for something.

Special is as special does.

I am a writer, an artist and an architect. I believe everything tells you a story if you look for it long enough — after all, universe is not made of atoms, it is made of tiny stories. When I am not writing or making the next cosy house, I am usually reading books and sipping tea. Coffee is fine, but nobody can convince me it is as satisfactory as tea.
