Meanwhile, if I were more conscious, I would have done 100 little things during the month and been 100 points ahead.
Now I realize that I’m putting this in “relationship nerd” terms, but I’m trying to get across the difference between the genders so that you can understanding him better, appreciate the differences and communicate to him in an effective way.
In fact, this isn't a singularly male phenomenon, except in the sense that men - due to their promiscuity - tend to be the ones breaking things off more frequently than women.
So how do you handle the situation if a man starts to "fade out" on you?
He says that all he wants to do is make me happy, so I don’t understand why he doesn’t even make the effort to do the things he knows I like! I want to tell him this bothers me, but I don’t want him to do it just because I “asked him to,” basically ruining it.
This is something that I hear all the time from women in their relationships.
In other words, I’m trying to give her a 10,000 point night, but it actually goes down in the “relationship books” as just 1 point.
Being the prize isn’t something you’re “doing” like walking a tightrope in a trapeze act.
It isn’t about stringing along a guy and making him feel like he doesn’t quite have you or that you need to constantly dangle a carrot.
If this happens after a long time together, or in an exclusive relationship, the reasons and obligations on the man's part are different entirely.
You guys talk a lot about being the prize and while I agree with the idea, I find it really difficult when it comes to guys I really like.
