We’re guessing you’re in a relationship and are looking to take things to the next level. For that, you’re going to need to show her just how much you care for her. But that can be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have it all mapped out in 17 bite-sized points that you can master to elevate the “you and me” to an “us.” Smile, and here’s how to make your girlfriend love you more:
1. Listen, Don’t Hear
Too many men understand on a primal level that they should be paying attention to what their better half says, only for them to have their mind on how they’re going to have to replace the sedan’s tires soon or how their choice of football team will cope with the harsh conditions of the night’s game.
Don’t be that guy; when you listen, you listen. You don’t analyse, you don’t judge, you listen. As a bonus, you’ll see how much easier it is to take conversation forward when you know when you remember what the other person just said.
2. Make Her Feel Involved
How to make your girlfriend love you more? Reply with more than just a “fine” when asked about your day. “It was good, we had a lot of fun” isn’t a good answer when asked about the company picnic either. If you want her to share her love, you’re going to have to share and make her feel involved in your life.
3. Hold Her When She Cries
Understand something very simple – she doesn’t need advice, she needs an ear. A hug and a handkerchief to wipe away the tears is nice too.
4. Weekend Getaways Are Nice
One of the easiest ways on how to make your girlfriend love you more is taking a trip, every now and then. Plan an outing, and not just with your best mates. Take her out and have a nice weekend getaway. You don’t have to plan everything yourself, suggest the idea to her and she’ll be happy to do her bit of the googling.
5. So Is Helping Around The House
You wanna know how to make your girlfriend love you more, for real? Help her out with the regular everyday stuff. Sometimes she’s going to need help with things you can’t (immediately) throw your wallet at. Doing the dishes, tidying up the bed, or offering to clean up the mess the dog just made (and then doing it) will show her that you truly care, and she will love you more for it.
6. Tell Her She Looks Pretty
Women love compliments and “sexy” and “ravishing” have their space, but telling her that she’s pretty gets the most mileage. You already think she’s beautiful, so communicate that to her.
7. Time It To Perfection
You want more? Still more? You need to know how to make your girlfriend love you more than just more? Well, it’s all in the timing. Telling her that she’s beautiful, when she’s got no makeup or tight dress on eases her insecurities and boosts her confidence – and love for you.
8. Leave Her Notes
Short, sweet love notes. With hearts and kisses.
9. Introduce Her Right
When introducing her to your friends, cousins or anyone else (which is a must), gently pull her close and place your hand on the small of her back. This is a very reassuring gesture that shows her – and everyone else – that she is important to you. Not the simplest but definitely one of the most important ways on how to make your girlfriend love you more.
10. The ‘Ex’ Is History
And if you run into her, you make sure to be brief and focused on your girlfriend.
