Hey Guys! Don’t be Someone Who Grumbles!

Filed under: For Men Only,Relationships — Larry James @ 5:30 am

If you want to keep your significant other happy and content – do things for her. Willingly.

Run errands. Surprise her by filling her car with gas. Switch roles for a day.

Offer to help with a chore she doesn’t particularly enjoy doing. The fact that you offer may come as a pleasant surprise.

Pick something you really don’t like to do and do it “without grumbling” while you do it. The secret is to not tell her you don’t like it and focus on the fact that although you don’t like to do it you know the affect it will have on your relationship.

Men often have a need to grumble while doing something they don’t like. When you make a choice not to grumble, your partner will most likely reward you by helping you fulfill one of your basic needs: approval. There could be other needs but face it, you like to be recognized for your accomplishments no matter how small.

A compliment now and then can greatly enhance your relationship too. Remember guys, your partner is a direct reflection of your attitude about her. When you grumble, most likely that is what you will hear from your partner. What you think about and speak about, you bring about!

Remember, foreplay begins with taking out the garbage “without being asked!”
