Men are tricky–one minute they’re interested and the next, they might not be. This can be for a variety of reasons, but for the most part, here are the habits that may push them away:
Lack of confidence
While it’s important to feel supported by your man, don’t lose your own self-confidence. Feel great in your own shoes and stop body-shaming or putting yourself down. Men find confidence sexy, it’s a fact.
Communication is vital in a relationship. However, some women (and even men) can get too talkative, impairing their abilities to listen to their partner and empathize. For this reason, be sure to balance out the conversation so it’s not all about you.
Not accepting your wrongs
He may love you unconditionally, but it’s not fair if you’re always insisting that you’re right in every situation. It’s important to hear your partner out, even if you think they’re in the wrong. But if you find that you weren’t right about that statement you made, kindly accept defeat and carry on.
Unable to unplug
It’s easy to get addicted to the computer and cell phone. Make time to be with each other face to face and put down the phone for a while. Social media can wait.
While he may be a great source to talk to when you’re upset with a friend or coworker, it’s not such a great idea to only vent to him. This shows off a negative side of yourself that constantly complains. Definitely share how you feel, but don’t put others down all the time in front of him.
Trying too hard
Your man loves you for you. For that reason, it’s important to be your genuine self with him and not try too hard. Act like yourself in front of his friends–don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.
Talking behind his back
Every once in awhile you might want to gripe about his annoying habits to a friend, but try to keep this bad-mouthing at a minimum. Everyone deserves to vent about the petty stuff, but don’t be too harsh.
