For me it’s simple. Treat me well and I’ll treat you better.
What does that mean exactly? Well most posters have touched on it already.
- Introduce me to your friends (family can wait until things are more serious), because I introduce you to mine. Otherwise I feel like a.) you’re ashamed of me, and b.)I’m just a curiosity to you.
2.) If I feel emotionally attached to someone who I would consider a girlfriend, the physical part of the relationship becomes important. Yes, that means sex, eventually. It doesn’t have to be soon, but eventually. It’s not just 'cos I’m horny, 'cos horny sex is easy to find. Men are simple creatures, and apart from horny sex, sex (or making love, if you wish) is a way we like to show caring and love to a partner.
3.) Show your affection or voice it. If you’re not comfortable to do that in public, fair enough. But when we’re alone a few sweet words goes a long way.
4.) Allow me to have the odd night out with the boys once in a while. Even once a month is fine, as long as you allow me to do that without jealousy and mistrust. Which bring me to my last and final point…
5.) Don’t distrust me if I’ve never given you reason not to trust me.
Oh ja, and good food helps too, although that’s not a major issue for me, 'cos I love to cook and am pretty able in that department.
