1. Ignore her emotions.
There is a reason why your girlfriend is there. She is your best friend, confidante, and life’s love. She isn’t a blank wall to whom you can talk whenever you want. She is a human being, and her thoughts and feelings are important to her.
Every relationship is two-sided, and it isn’t always about you. Respect her and her opinions, listen to her, and never, ever dismiss her feelings as irrational. It takes two to make love work, so make sure her voice is heard at all times.
2. Be unfaithful to her.
The most serious mortal sin on any woman’s list. You should never be unfaithful to your lady love. You could make every excuse in the book, but it would never justify this heinous crime. Be self-sufficient enough to secure yourself before entering into a relationship.
If you’re not sure why you’re doing what you’re doing or if you’re thinking about doing it, stop right there and tell your girlfriend. It’s always preferable to be truthful with her than to go behind her back. Although it will be painful for her at first, finding someone else without telling her will be even more painful.
3. Tell her a lie in front of her face.
Never lie about the minor details because if you can do so, it will be much easier to lie about the major ones. Why, after all, lie in the first place? Relationships are built on trust and transparency, and there is no room for deception.
It’s okay to make mistakes at first, but if you keep repeating them and apologizing for the same things, it’s a different story. You could be deceiving yourself instead of your girlfriend this time. Spend some time reflecting on why you’re in this relationship in the first place.
4. Inflicted pain on her heart.
A true man will never inflict physical, emotional, or mental harm on his wife. He would never dare to touch her skin, spit a hurtful word at her, or play cruel tricks with her emotions. Unfortunately, there are a lot of men like this, so don’t be one of them.
If you find yourself losing your cool during a fight, practice your patience by counting to ten, closing your mouth, or asking for some alone time. It’s better to think things through first before acting or saying something you’ll come to regret later.
5. Belittle her as a person.
This is a cruel act that many people commit, and they frequently do so subconsciously or without even realizing it. Degrading your girlfriend can occur in a variety of ways. You are already degrading her if you make fun of her dreams, criticize her actions, or insult her personality.
One could argue, “But I’m just teasing her.” There is a fine line between teasing and being malicious. If this doesn’t make her laugh, it’s no longer okay. You are not only destroying your relationship, but also her self-esteem and confidence.
6. Be unhelpful.
You’re supposed to be her biggest fan as her boyfriend. There isn’t a single justification in the world for missed anniversary dinners, unattended birthday parties, or unanswered phone calls. When you decide to be in a relationship, you agree to be present at critical times.
Remind yourself to always be there for your girlfriend, no matter how insignificant the event is for you. You should take her hand in yours and make her feel important. Lift her up on your shoulders and make her feel as if she can reach for the stars.
7. Consider her as an option.
Many people date for the sake of having fun, but this approach frequently results in a string of broken hearts. If you decide to be in a committed and loving relationship, you can’t simply treat your girlfriend as another option.
You can’t go out with other women and then return to her when they leave you. You can’t spend time with her after you’ve asked everyone else and discovered that no one else is available. You must never make her feel as if she is merely a choice.
8. Go back on your word.
In a relationship, the last thing a man should do is break his promises. If you can’t keep your words, don’t say them at all. You should never make your girlfriend wait for something only to be disappointed later because you can’t keep your promises.
Broken promises that are repeated are even worse. This demonstrates immaturity and a lack of responsibility. It is your responsibility as a loving boyfriend to say words that are true to your heart.
Women don’t expect you to be as perfect as the guys in romantic soap operas, but it never hurts to pick up a few pointers from those role models. Life isn’t a fairytale, and not every guy is a Prince who will seduce you, but one thing is certain: the world needs more loyal gentlemen, and if you follow these tips, you can become one of them.
9. She is not taken seriously.
If you don’t take your girlfriend seriously, you might want to reconsider why you’re in a relationship in the first place. Never be that horrible guy who makes fun of her for being true to herself and puts her down when she’s trying to better herself.
Women are already dealing with ridiculous issues from the rest of the world; she doesn’t need this from her boyfriend. Instead, you should encourage her and even pave the way for her success.
