Understanding what you can do to help your partner open up will not only improve your relationship, but it will improve your entire life.
Here are the seven things that all women want in a relationship.
There’s lots more to talk about beyond the practical and the superficial like your kids, your jobs, and the weather. In fact, it’s critical for couples to discuss their feelings and emotions on a regular basis. These deep and real conversations are the “glue” that will hold you together and create the intimacy married people desire.
It’s really disheartening for a wife to share her thoughts and feelings with her mate and then realize he didn’t actually listen to her. Your wife wants you to not only listen with your ears but to listen with your heart. According to research, men who respect their wives’ opinions have much happier marriages. And, guess what? Most of the times wives are right!
It’s not a stereotype that men are terrible at taking care of themselves when it comes to their health: Research shows it’s true. Part of the reason men don’t prioritize healthcare is due to an inbuilt idea about masculinity and strength: They feel pressure to appear strong and equate illness or pain with weakness. But your wife would appreciate if you would focus more on your health than that of your masculinity.
The feminine in all people responds primarily to praise and appreciation.
Remind your partner that you love her. Tell her that you appreciate what she brings to your life. Show her how much she means to you.
The fastest way to ruin your relationship into the ground is by ignoring your partner and taking her for granted. Appreciation is the opposite of those things. Appreciation is the embodying this mindset: “I am aware of what you bring to my life, and I want you to be sure that I am aware of it as well.”
So tell her what you appreciate and tell her often.
