10 relationship secrets women want men to know
Knowing the secret to a lasting relationship is what women want men to know. Sometimes, women are frustrated because men seem clueless about what to do in relationships. Men on the other hand also think that women are complex beings and are confused about how to love and please them.
In the light of this age-long, unending confusion, Feminine Nigeria spoke to some women about the secret of lasting relationships they wished men knew and the responses are interesting as they are surprising.
Christine: Tell her she looks good again and again
Women like to be told they look nice, and they like a man who notices that without being told. When she’s wearing a sexy new dress, for example, she will give you major points for saying how hot she looks, especially if you mention the dress before she does. If she’s looking particularly attractive, if she has a new haircut, if she’s looking more fit- let her hear about it again and again. When you continue to tell her how good she looks, she will loosen up around you.
Sylvia: Keep romance simple
Another relationship secret is romance. Romance is something a woman will always want, whether you have been together for two months or 2 years. Gifts, perfumes, books, intimate dinner, and a few lines of love poetry sound very romantic. Guys have to know that most women appreciate such simple romantic gestures. So guys need to keep romance coming because it’s simple and it’s one of the relationship secrets that makes sex sweet.
Nicole: Guys, don’t be afraid of the relationship talk
When your woman wants to talk about your relationship, it doesn’t necessarily mean you did something wrong. Many women like to talk about the state of the relationship at different stages as well as what’s going right, what’s going wrong, or simply what’s going on. This is a good thing. An honest talk can bring the two of you closer. Men shouldn’t be afraid of the relationship talk. It’s not that hard. This secret will help you understand your woman better.
Oluremi: Learn what she wants in bed
Women do like to talk to about what’s going on during sex, and they want to please their man and a tactful approach is often best. As a guy, ask her what she likes during sex. Be sure to ask for what you want in a positive and validating way. It should sound like this: “I would really love if you tell me what you want me to do.” Then flow with her and create unforgettable pleasurable moments.
Tessy: A caring guy is a hot guy
Men should know that women appreciate a guy with a sensitive side, especially when they are upset. If you don’t know how to pacify your woman when she’s angry lovingly, why are you in her life to begin with? A caring guy is a hot guy. Put your arms around her when she’s upset and wipe her tears. That action will earn you points. Nurturing is a powerful way to connect with a woman.
Rebecca: Don’t try to fix her world
If you want your relationship to last with your woman, don’t try to fix her life. When something’s bothering her, she wants your ear, not your advice. Listening is important to your woman but she also wants to know that she is being heard. If she tells you that she is upset because her boss gave her a tough time, she wants to tell her everything will be fine and hug her. Resist the urge to offer solutions. Adhere to this secret and you will enjoy relationship bliss.
Helen: You don’t have to hide your flaws
Nothing captures a woman’s heart quite like a good man who doesn’t hide his flaws and wants to be a better man. Many women love personal growth, they love a man who is thoughtful and sensitive. They love a man who doesn’t pretend he is perfect. They like it when their men show their weaknesses and make efforts to address them.
Grace: Sex will happen whenever she’s ready
Women don’t set a timeline on when they will invite a potential partner into the bedroom. Some women will want to have many dates before sex; others might have sex on the first date. Sex will happen whenever she wants it and feels comfortable with you. Men should know this secret.
Sonia: Chivalry still has its place
When it comes to romance, many women do like men to take the traditional masculine role. This is especially true in the wooing stage of a relationship. While a woman is perfectly capable of pulling out her own chair or opening a door, she might just be waiting for you to take the initiative and be a gentleman. Chivalry still has its place in the dating scene. This is one secret men should know when dating women.
Bolanle: Women like it slow when it comes to sex
Guys often want to take the quickest path to sex. But many women prefer the scenic and slow route. This is one of the relationship secrets men don’t know. Women want sex but they get to it in a different way. They want to feel connected and understood, they want to be romanced. That means time and talking and touching in other words, foreplay. This secret is a relationship saver.
