As the world knows, a woman may find herself in a situation of a new man. Many sad and disillusioned women today have cast themselves away like an old shoe!
If you want to avoid being taken advantage of and just a fling to the man you love, make sure you do the right things to make him take you seriously.
Here are some excellent ways to make him serious about you.
Be Honest about Your Needs
A lot of women have lied to their entire lives. Even if they’re not being told outright lies, they’ve probably been led to believe that they should do certain things and they’ll never get what they want. So before you go out with someone, ask yourself what you really want, and don’t settle for anything less than what you need. If he doesn’t understand that you need respect and trust, then he’s not worth your time!
Don’t get too chummy with him
If you get too friendly, chummy and familiar with him too early in the relationship, you are bound to force yourself and your charms on him. He will think you will always be there for the taking, and therefore he will stop having real feelings for you. He will regard you as someone with whom he can just have a good time without being committed.
It’s okay to ask questions, especially if you haven’t been on a date before. Find out what his goals and dreams are, and find out what his favorite hobbies are. Does he like spending time with friends? Does he play sports? These are all great ways to learn more about him, and to determine whether you two might be compatible.
Don’t let him put his stamp of authority on you
If he’s treating you like shit, don’t take it. Tell him you need some space and if he doesn’t respect your feelings then you deserve someone who will. Make sure you give yourself permission to leave before you start feeling bad.
Show him affection
Make sure you touch him frequently and let him know you care about him. A simple touch can mean the world to him. Even if you’re not in the mood to play around right now, you should still express your interest. Hugging and kissing are both ways to show affection without saying a word.
Look Into His Past Relationships
If you’re looking for long-term relationships, then you need to look into his past relationships. If you notice that he’s had problems keeping a girlfriend happy, then you’ll know that he’s not always going to treat you right.
Don’t let him have his way too often
He is bound to get spoilt and pampered if you let him have his way too often with you. This will make him selfish and he will begin to treat you badly. If you put your foot down and make him realize that you are not going to stand being treated like a fling, he will be forced to acknowledge your feelings.
Make him fall in love with your character
The more he falls in love with you, the more he will become serious about you. Only when he is not in love with you and your character can he behave in a manner that proves that he is only playing with you. Once he loves you deeply, he will never treat you like a fling.
Prove yourself to him in every way
A man needs to see for himself if you are worth his love and commitment. Unless he is truly convinced and sure of your character, qualities and traits, only then he will be able to think of you as someone he can get serious with. As long as he does not have proof of your admirable traits, he will find it difficult to get serious about you.
Make sure you earn his respect
Do things that will prove that you are honest and trustworthy. These qualities will help you earn his respect. Once he respects you, he will never be able to treat you like a fling or a “passing fancy”. He will never be satisfied with having a casual relationship with you. He will want something more.
