Of course she loves being in a relationship with you. She had been searching for the right guy and you came into her life to fulfill her wish. Now life should be totally blissful, right? As hard as she tried to get coupled up with someone special, now that she’s with you, there are probably going to be moments when she wistfully remembers what it was like to be a single girl. As happy as you are with her, there are likely things you miss about your single life too. Learn what she might be pining for and how you, her perfect boyfriend, should deal with it. If you can both be a little more accommodating in these areas it will ultimately strengthen your relationship.
Before you came along, she had grown accustomed to flirting with the fella behind the counter at the coffee shop she stops at every morning, her co-worker two cubicles down and the single male members of her social circle. Now she has to be conscious of every time she bats her eyelashes or tosses her hair. She may occasionally slip up — she’s only human — but instead of acting jealous, cut her a little slack. Flirting is usually harmless, so if she’s a little extra friendly with the guy at the video store, let it slide.
If she constantly flirts with other guys in front of you and is inconsiderate of your feelings, then you’ve got a genuine complaint. But if she is just being her charming self, give her a little room for some harmless flirting.
Her healthy diet
You probably don’t think much of your greasy food and beer diet, but there’s a good chance it’s not her usual meal plan. Many women find that when they enter a relationship, certain aspects of their lives must adapt to accommodate a man’s presence, including what they eat. As a general rule, guys are not as conscious of healthy eating as women are and she may miss a time when the fridge contained fresh vegetables.
It wouldn’t kill you to try to eat a little better or try some new foods. Plus, cooking together can be a lot of fun and help you feel closer as a couple.
Time to herself
It’s not that she doesn’t like spending every waking minute with you, but before you walked into her life, she had a lot more time on her hands and some of it was spent by herself. As a single girl, she may have bemoaned this alone time, wishing she had someone special to share it with, but now that she’s attached, she may start to realise how valuable a little “me time” can be.
Giving her a little time to herself isn’t hard, and being apart every now and then will make both of you more appreciative of your time together.
