Even when you're a couple, no one likes a clingy partner. In fact, being clingy is a cringe-worthy characteristic and sends a relationship crashing into the rocks in the blink of an eye. A little breather now and then does every relationship some good. So, take some time out to do your own thing.
Think back. What did you do before he came into your life? Go out with your friends, have some alone time, do anything other than crowd his space. That way, he'll cherish every moment with you. Don't get it wrong—you don't have to play hard to get when he evidently already got you, just remember that your life doesn't revolve around him.
Meeting that special someone is like a breath of fresh air, a sip of cool water on a sunny day, or even a good night's sleep. It's so refreshing and heartwarming. But once the honeymoon period is over, it's easy to get so comfortable that you fall into a rut. If you want that man to remember how he feels about you, you need to bring back the spice.
It may not be anything like when you first got together, but the beauty of being together is that you can go through the throes of it altogether. For the most part, relationships evolve, so, you don't have to feel butterflies every day. However, you can sink back into the nostalgia of it once in a while.
Aside from being nice to his family and having dinner with them once in a while, getting well acquainted with the people in his circle would give you an advantage. In addition to the regular hangouts they have with both of you, try to connect to each of them individually.
It's hard for him to stop thinking of you when his friends are constantly talking about how great you are. Be nice and let them associate good feelings with you. Invite them over to watch the game or for game night. Creating a bond with his friends would make him realize just how amazing you are.
Prioritizing yourself would automatically add value to you; neglecting yourself so you can pay attention to him would do the complete opposite. Most men could end up relaxing the moment they know they’d always have you around. He won’t feel the need to value your presence or time.
He also won’t feel the need to take care of himself talkless of you. Prioritizing yourself would make him sit up and give you the love and attention you deserve. Instead of going along with him to his parent’s place for the hundredth time, go somewhere you want to go and do something you genuinely want to do.
Being clingy is the last thing you want to do in a relationship, you end up choking your partner and weighing him down. Men love to hang with their other ‘ale’ friends, it's what keeps them connected to the gender.
They love to watch the game together, hang out at the bar, go fishing, or just play video games together. Doing all these things with his friends does not mean he does not value you or enjoy your company. On the contrary, he’ll love you even more when you’re not always in his space.
Never underestimate the value of your girlfriends, they’re your true ride or dies. You need some space just as much as he does, it's very necessary. When he notices that you’re not solely dependent on him and his attention, you’d begin to be mysterious to him.
The mystery would pique his interest in you and automatically make you more attractive to him. So, it's time for you to dust off all those hobbies you kept aside, just so you could ‘pay more attention to your relationship’ and get back to them. Call up your girlfriends and let them know you’d be free to hang with them tonight, go get your life!
You need to stop giving him a free pass every time he messes up and every time he hurts you. The more passes you give to him, the more he’d take you for granted. Stop tolerating his horrible attitude and his neglect, he won’t change that way.
Remind him that you’re human too and you have feelings; he needs to put in some work to make the relationship successful. If it upsets you that he keeps forgetting your anniversary or birthday, just come out clean and tell him, he’ll make an effort to change and will in turn value you even more.
Every serious-minded and mature man’s desire is to have a supportive woman by his side. Society is quite hard on men, they’re expected to be strong and independent. To solely support themselves and their families, a supportive and helpful woman would be like a breath of fresh air.
Many men who act as they have it all under control are really trying to compensate for one weakness or the other. Perhaps all you need for your partner to realize just how much he cherishes you is to make sure you give him lots of support.
No man is an island, and that includes your partner. Everyone needs a little encouragement to get through the various waves and challenges in life.If he’s going through a rough patch or just expecting something good, it would help to make him feel better about the situation.
Spend time encouraging him in the morning, he may really need those words of affirmation you’re sending his way. Men need that encouragement even though they don’t ask for it, so make him realize you're on his side.
After doing all the above to make him realize he cherishes you, sit back for a while and wait for the results. You don’t want to make it obvious by staring at him or being awkward; men sometimes take a while to process their feelings. Just keep showing him love and make him understand that ‘you’re a catch’ but you could also be his ‘superwoman’.
A guy would realize he has lost you the moment you stop giving him so much attention. Stop responding to his messages, stop having sex with him, perhaps even start seeing other people. Make plans for your life and don’t include him, take your mind off him completely, and don’t look back.
You know if a man really adores you, by the way, he treats you, the way he speaks to you, and the way he speaks about you. If a man truly cherishes you, he would try his best to secure your peace of mind and maintain the trust you have in him.
‘The best revenge is success.’ I think many people agree with this, and I do too. Rather than wasting precious time trying to get back at him, channel that energy into your fitness, health, business, and future. When a man sees you’re doing well without him, that’s the best revenge.
Most guys realize what they’ve lost only when their ex has moved on, especially if the woman he lost was remarkable. When they’ve dated other women who end up giving them a hard time, they’d definitely look back and regret losing you.
The moment there is no communication anymore, the relationship is most likely over. Acts of love, affection, and care are what keeps a relationship going; the moment both parties stop caring about each other the relationship will cease to exist. Also, if both parties start seeing other people, the relationship is definitely over.
