It seemed like a great first, second or even third date… but after a couple of weeks, he seems to get bored or restless, and he drops the inevitable line: ‘Maybe we’re better off as friends.’ What happened? Fact is that flirting can only get you so far. What keeps the flame alive? Read on.
Show an interest in his hobbies
What does he love to do? This may be a way for you to bond and seal your relationship beyond making googly eyes over candelight dinners. You don’t have to force yourself into doing something you hate (like playing golf when the mere thought of the greens makes you gag) but surely there’s one thing that you can see yourself doing or talking about: his favorite movie genre, bowling, tropical fish…
Show off your talents
Show him other sides of you. Being good at something, whether it’s cooking or taking awesome photo, will set you apart from all the other beautiful girls he’s met or dated.
There’s nothing sexier than a sense of humor. Loosen up and joke around, or show him your lighthearted and carefree self. He’ll see that you’re fun to hang around with. It can be a downer to be with someone who takes herself too seriously.
Men want caring and nurturing women. You don’t have to baby him, like pick after his clothes or make him a cup of coffee, but you can ask him how his day was and listen to him when he needs someone to talk to.
Don’t let yourself go
We often dress up for the first few dates but as the relationship progresses we have a tendency to let ourselves go. Put some effort into it. Even if you’re just hanging out in shorts and tees, at least wear a nice lipstick and cologne. Casual doesn’t mean sloppy.
Give him space
It’s important to have your own interests and friends, because you don’t want to turn clingy. Give him a chance to miss you. Besides there’s something sexy about a woman who’s passionate about a lot of things, and has a very dynamic and diverse life.
