A woman texting

1. Texting him more than he’s texting you.

There are some couples out there that love to text each other 10 to 15 times per day, and there are other couples who might not connect until they get home from work. Either way is fine, except when there is ONE person in the relationship sending dozens of texts looking for responses. This is only communicating that you have nothing better to do with your day than focus on him. Control your texting and make sure you are texting him equally as much as he’s texting you. Take a moment and think why you are sending each text. Did you hear something funny at work you want to share? Are you setting up any after work drinks? Or are you bored? Feel obligated to stay in constant contact? There is no need to keep a constant tally of whose texting who, but take a moment to think about whether or not there’s a purpose behind your message. If you do that, your man will get excited when he sees he received a message from you instead of anticipating a mundane hourly text.

2. Taking up his entire Facebook wall.

Facebook is the ultimate public display of affection. Unfortunately, Facebook can destroy your relationship if you’re not careful. Most guys are not comfortable with publically sending cute “notes” with their girlfriend. They feel that they’ll get ridiculed by their friends and it will make them look “whipped.” Although you don’t want every thought and action of your guy to be determined by his friends, he’ll appreciate you being aware of this and respecting his masculinity. Apply the same concept as texting, have a purpose behind your posts. Don’t say what you would say in a cute text or in person on his facebook wall. Keep that between just you too- its more special that way!

3. Implying how badly you want to get married.

When you’re in a long term relationship both the man and the woman are constantly thinking about the “M” word. Traditionally of course, the man will propose to the woman and the woman patiently awaits the magic moment. However, some women can’t muster up the patience and will constantly imply that they want marriage. If this is something that is top of mind for you, then confront your man directly. He’ll respect you more for it and you won’t come off as needy or clingy.

  5. Stars? If it was up to me, I wouldn't have them in the house. More trouble than they're worth and, gentle reader, often wrong as a result of simple human sub-editing error. My advice is: don't trust them.
