HB PHOTOGRAPHY VIA GETTY IMAGES
Anyone seeing this title who really knows me will probably be aghast. But in my defence I will say ‘practice makes perfect.’ If anyone is considering buying a book, reading an article or seeking therapy I can recommend it from the standpoint that practice can make perfect, but do you want to spend sixty years practicing?
There are 133,000,000 results on Google for relationship tips. So I selected some at random but quite near the top of the list. The main theme is how to keep your girlfriend/wife happy and how to keep your boyfriend/husband happy. There are a few variants but the following ways to keep your partner was underlying:
Boyfriend: 1. Compliment him. 2. Appreciate him. 3. Make time for him in the bedroom. Husband: 1. Show him respect. 2. Be honest. 3. Have sex.
Girlfriend: 1. Listen to her. 2. Buy her presents. 3. Be nice to her friends. Wife: 1. Listen to her 2. Compliment her. 3. Look after your appearance.
I love number 1. To keep your Boyfriend/husband happy compliment him and show him respect. Whereas to keep your girlfriend/wife happy you must listen to her. Hmmm do you see a theme here?
Number 2 is interesting, boys you must but her presents and girls you must appreciate him. That’s clever because by the time they get to husband and wife the presents have been switched to compliments and wives are encouraged to be honest.
Number 3 is my favourite. Girls, make time for us in the bedroom and we’ll be nice to your friends? Really? This kinda makes me wonder if you don’t make time for us in the bedroom will we be even nicer to your friends. I was going to put a cheeky winky face in there but you might get the wrong idea. By the time this poor couple have matured into man and wife she is still getting sex and he’s down the gym looking after his appearance.
My advice? Be nice to each other 🙂 x
