14 Dec

 

As the year progresses, it is important to make sure you are being nice to your boyfriend. The lingo you text him should be nice and caring. Here are some tips of what not to say to him:

I’m Fine-

IF you are moody and acting cranky, your boyfriend will ask you whats wrong. By saying “I’mFine” you are not being honest with him. It is best to tell him exactly what is going on and why you are upset. Doing this will strengthen your relationship.

Lets go on a real date-

It is not about what you do, it is about the effort he puts in. Don’t insult the amount of money he spends on the date. Instead of saying “lets go on a real date” suggest trying something new to do.

It’s just a game-

Some men find video games and football really interesting. By trying to distract him while he is putting his attention towards something else will make him cranky and agitated. If he ignores you excessively, tell him what is bothering you instead of snapping at him.

Relax-

Today relax can be taken as distruction of your relationship. It will make him mad if you tell him to chill-out. Men do not like to be told what to do, and if you tell him to relax, chances are he will act opposite.

It is important to be positive when you are in your realtionship. Communication is the best thing you can do to keep your relationship healthy and positive. Also, consider if you are mad at him to give him a call on the phone rather than texting. Some texts are misinterperted because the receiver of the message is unable to see visual ques and expressions of the intention of the message.
