Do these to keep the fire of your relationship burning.

If you’re a man in a steady relationship, chances are you’d like to keep your girlfriend as loyal and devoted to you as much as possible.

However, you’re simply noticing that the romance between you and your significant other isn’t like it used to. There’s no need to get really anxious that your relationship is already headed to the dumps, though.

Make sure you read on to find out how you can really keep the fire burning in your relationship.

Make her feel that you’re grateful for having her in your life.

A lot of guys seem to disregard the fact that getting romantic with their girlfriends doesn’t end when they’re already in a relationship.

Keep in mind to frequently show and make her feel that you’re really thankful you have her in your life.

It could be through sending her sweet text messages and emails or perhaps a love note hidden in her purse or somewhere she can easily find them.

Common courtesies should be a mainstay in your checklist.

Don’t forget to have common courtesies either in words and gestures as a mainstay in your daily checklist with your girlfriend.

Sure this may sound rather cheesy, but it’s absolutely a must if you’re looking to keep the fire burning in your relationship.

Make sure you say “thank you” and “please” when communicating with her. Showing her your chivalric side like holding a door open or perhaps offering her your coat when the weather is nippy are also smart moves to give her the notion you’re still really into her.

Always have time for the two of you.

Don’t ever forget to have a regular schedule for bonding and dating with your significant other.

You could have it on weekends or perhaps just any day that the both of you don’t have any other engagements to attend to. It doesn’t mean that you’re already boyfriend and girlfriend that dates should be out of your schedule.

Keep in mind to go to new places and experience new stuff with her as well while you’re at it to really take the excitement factor up a notch.

Tell her “I love you” each time you can.

Now while this may seem the most simplistic of the pointers I’ve pointed out here, but simply telling your GF you love her (and how much you do, too) frequently keeps her feeling relaxed and comfortable in your relationship.

Boost your chances of acing a date with these tips.

Boost your chances of acing a date with these tips.

Unlike what a lot of so-called “pickup artists” are saying nowadays, impressing a woman on a date isn’t about putting on the most ridiculous outfit you can get your hands on as well as acting self-important to give her the notion that you’re the alpha male.

However, I’ve learned a few useful things during my extensive research into the female psychology that may just help boost your chances of acing your next date.

Make sure you follow along to find out more…

Picking the venue is critical.

Now while most guys mistakenly think that their odds of acing a date become much higher if they go for the most expensive place that they can find, doing just that will actually lead to the opposite.

Ultra-posh venues will simply make a woman feel that she’s on a job interview instead of a date and that will definitely affect things in a great way.

Make it a point to let her in on the planning and organizing of your date instead. Besides having a clue of where she’s really like to have it, you’ll also make her feel that you’re really into her.

Grooming is an essential.

Making sure that you look and smell great is a must if you’re hoping to dazzle a woman on a date.

Apart from keeping in mind to take a long shower and getting rid of excessive facial hair, slapping on some deodorant and picking clothes that are not just comfortable, but also suitable for the occasion should also be in your checklist.

Having a spritz or two of light cologne also helps.

Talk about simple stuff.

Some guys mistakenly think that talking about complicated things during a date makes the women they are going out with that they’re smart. But the thing is this will just bore or even annoy her as you go along.

You can ask her about her favorite TV shows, pets, books, cartoon characters and similar stuff. The simpler, the better. And you’ll encourage her to open up more as long as you use this strategy, too.

Listen to her intently.

Listening is key when it comes to acing a date. Apart from making her feel that you’re really interested with what she’s saying, hanging on to her every word also helps ease whatever anxiety she’s feeling at the moment.

(Now we’ve got that covered, switching your phone off is also a smart idea during the same.)

Avoid these mistakes!

Avoid these first date mistakes!

Acing a first date is tough. There’s no more straightforward way of saying this.

Unlike what a lot of so-called “dating gurus” are saying though, pulling the whole thing off is more than just looking and smelling good as well as choosing a posh restaurant to take her to on the big night (or day).

Boosting your chances of really wowing a woman on a first date also involves keeping clear from mistakes that can easily ruin the whole thing in no time. Interestingly, a lot of men seem to overlook these things as well.

So if you’d like to increase your odds of convincing her to say yes to another date with you, here are a few things that should avoid when you take a woman out for the first time…

Don’t forget to let her in on the planning.

Most guys mistakenly think that planning and organizing a first date is solely their job. Sure this may give a woman the notion that you’re a take charge guy with initiative, but you won’t know if the details you put in will be to her liking.

Make it a point to ask her where she’s like to go on your date. This also includes the food and drink you will order while at it. Doing this makes her feel that you’re really into her, too, which earns you extra brownie points in the process.

The conversation should be trivial.

Discussing complicated stuff will only give her the notion that she’s in a job interview instead of a first date. She’d want to bolt out of there when you do this. Keep things trivial and you’ll be alright.

Keep your mobile phone in silent mode.

Nothing irks a woman more during a first date than a man who seems to check his phone every minute or two. Sure the temptation to check if you’ve received a text or a voice message, you will just make her feel that you’re bored and wishing you’re anywhere else at the moment.

Make it a point to post those tweets and updates later as well because they will just annoy her. This also applies to other gadgets that you may have like tablets and mp3 players.

No alcohol allowed.

Unlike what a lot of men think, alcohol may give you a boost of courage, but it will also affect the way you think and act on a first date. Save your favorite brew for later even if it’s your date that made the first move to order one.

So you'd like to approach women more successfully...

So you’d like to approach women more successfully…

Imagine yourself chilling in a bar and you see this attractive woman that you’d like to know better.

Unlike what so-called “dating gurus” are recommending though, simply waltzing in her direction and making her feel that you’re the alpha male isn’t going to cut it.

So if you’re looking to approach women more successfully, here are a few easy ways to pull off just that…

Move toward her where she can see you.

Some men tend to overlook the fact that women will find it really creepy if they are approached from behind or from another direction that they are going to be blindsided.

This is because it gives them the notion that your intentions are rather questionable, which easily raises her anxiety levels.

No matter how much you took care of your grooming or perhaps fine-tuned your conversational cheat sheet, she won’t be that happy to see you or eager to exchange ideas with you when you do this.

Make it a point to always come close to her where she can see you from the side or from the front.

Do not ask permission to talk to her.

Although it may be the more gentlemanly way of approaching a woman, asking permission to talk to her easily puts you at a disadvantage.

Besides giving her the notion that you are at her mercy and she can say no to you right from the get go, it also makes her feel that you are not that confident about yourself, which is a big turn off among women.

You can kick things off by telling her your name and your favorite drink or some other trivial stuff about you.

Sure this may sound simplistic, but women are more comfortable with simple and trivial things. And the chances that you’re going to encourage her to talk are going to be much higher while at it, too.

Accentuate with gestures, but don’t be touchy-feely.

Now while it’s alright to make a point with gestures, keep in mind not to be touchy-feely in the process because this will only make a woman feel that you’re invading her privacy.

This triggers a rush of negative hormones in her body and you’re going to lose your chance right then and there.

A smarter option would be to wait for the woman you’re engaging to initiate the touching herself. Apart from signaling that she is starting to build rapport with you, it also means she is attracted to you.
