Do you want to know the secrets on capturing a man’s heart?
Who doesn’t right? Whether it’s a boyfriend, husband, or a long-time crush, women would practically do anything to make their man fall hopelessly in-love with them.
I’m sure you also want the same thing. So, I will no longer keep you in great suspense. Here are 12 things you can do to capture his heart and make him love you forever:
#1: FOCUS ON YOUR SELF
Probably one of the classic mistakes made by most women is this: They tend to lose their identity once they fall in love. They forget about their social life, life passions, career, and isolate themselves from friends and family.
Here’s a quick question. Have you ever thought that perhaps it was the old you that really caught his attention? Don’t fall into this trap as he will miss the independent, confident woman he met in the first place.
#2: TELL HIM
If he did something annoying, tell him. If you have feelings for him, tell him.
Remember, men were not born with psychic abilities. They also don’t have a Ph.D. on deciphering complicated “female talk” or body language.
#3: BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN
Be confident—I know it’s such a cliché, but hear me out first. Being confident is good because…
Men find confidence really sexy. Confidence is also an instant beauty enhancer. The positive vibe that you exude tells a man you’re complete and very ready to form a healthy relationship with him.
Besides, if you can’t love who you are, quirks and all, how can you expect him to love you too?
#4: THROW COMPLIMENTS HIS WAY
Of course, don’t be fake or over the top. Give him your sincerest compliment. You don’t always have to express it through words. Perhaps you can give your man an approving look when he dresses up really nice. Or, perhaps you could give him a smile for taking out the garbage.
#5: DON’T TRY CHANGING HIM
Your man, or any man for that matter, doesn’t like it when you try to make him do something he doesn’t want to do. Let me give you a few examples:
Engage in sports instead of playing computer games
Getting a real job
Stop being a meat fanatic. Eat more veggies and fruits
#6: LET GO OF THE SMALL STUFF
Before you lose it, ask yourself, would it really kill me if I choose not to let this one bother me? Seriously, would your world crumble if your man didn’t flush the toilet or forgets to buy something you specifically asked for?
I’m not however saying you just remain quiet and let your man have his way all the time. What I’m trying to say is that you choose your battles carefully.
#7: LEARN THE ART OF COMPROMISE
You and your man are not always going to share the same opinions 24/7. And that’s pretty normal. Remember, you two are in a relationship, not in a battle arena
#8: DON’T KEEP HIM ON A TIGHT LEASH
Are you guilty of this
In most cases, the cause of this issue is low self-confidence. A woman who has a negative view of herself tends to keep his man on a tight leash because she’s scared that he might leave her for someone else.
If you truly want to capture his heart and make him love you forever, give him space. The more you make him feel freer, the greater the possibility that he’ll stay with you for good.
#9: NEVER USE THE “SILENT TREATMENT”
A friend once told me that if there’s one thing that really annoys her husband it’s the silent treatment. It really drives a man crazy when you don’t tell him what’s bugging you. Vague replies, like, “I don’t know,” are not going to magically solve things. As what I’ve said in advice #2, just tell him (nicely), so you two can smooth things out and be happy again.
#10: DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THE BLAMING GAME
How many times have you blown your fuse over things that your man didn’t really do? If you’re feeling stressed, annoyed, or whatever, don’t immediately let your man take the blame. Know what it is that’s bothering you, and then ask your man to give you time to clear your head and remove the negative vibe from your system.
#11: HAVE FIRM, HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP BOUNDARIES
Your man would love and respect you more if you have firm but healthy relationship boundaries. He would really appreciate it if you share your thoughts, ask for help (if necessary), respect his ideas without trampling your own, don’t need constant reassurance, or grow distant without warning.
#12: DON’T FORGET TO BEAUTIFY
Yes, true beauty is within, and your man most likely knows that. However, it doesn’t mean that you stop paying attention on how you look.
You really don’t have to undergo an extreme makeover. Just dressing up once in a while or wearing make-up when you go out would do. If over the years you’ve gained more weight, you might want to start hitting the gym to get fit and healthy. He will love you more knowing that you’re taking care of yourself.
