2. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Life can be challenging. Stress is a normal part of life. And when you can navigate through that stress and even come to see a bit of humor in life’s challenges, that’s quite attractive.
3. Follow through.
Say what you mean and do what you say you’ll do. No false promises. Don’t tell us you’ll call if you don’t mean it, even if you’re trying not to hurt our feelings.
We don’t want your empty words. We want to know that your words are true. Accountability and trust are the cornerstones of a healthy relationship.
4. The little things matter.
We notice pretty much everything you do. Opening a door, being kind to the waiter, a sweet good morning text–we notice it all.
Keep on doing those little acts of kindness, and if we have an argument, the positives will help us forgive the negatives.
Most women think it’s flirty and sweet when you poke a little fun at us, but if you overdo it, you will piss us off. And if you do go too far with the teasing and we tell you, please apologize.
A sincere apology is one of the sexiest things a guy can do for a woman.
6. Take care of your appearance.
Most women put a lot of effort into their looks. We get expensive haircuts, put on makeup, and buy nice clothes and lingerie to feel good about ourselves and to look good for our guy.
We love it when you put effort into your appearance, too. When you put in the energy to dress in your personal style, stay well groomed (and go lightly on the after-shave), we appreciate you for it. And if you’re clueless about fashion, why don’t you let us take you shopping? It would be a fun date night, and those new clothes might just turn us on…
