make her happy

Are you a nice guy? Is being nice and flexible affecting your relationship? Although you should always strive to be a “good man, being a ‘nice guy’ can kill your relationship. If you think your niceness is making her pull away, then here are 5 ways you can fix your relationship and make her attracted to you.

Note: Before we go ahead, kindly note that these tips apply to women, as well, taught from childhood to be the “nice girl.” If that’s you, flip she to he, her to him.

“I want to spend more quality time with you.”
“I want to be more physically intimate with you.”
“I want you to not pull away from me, even when you’re upset.”

3. Experience Pain

“Where there is love, there is vulnerability to pain.” – Laura Ramirez
