Being a girlfriend.
Being a girlfriend is not just about being beautiful and attractive for your guy. It’s not just about letting him chase you, letting him do sweet things every time you’re mad at him and not just receiving flowers and gifts during your anniversaries. It’s not about doing those girly things just to get his attention and not just about feeling mighty every time he did everything you want. It’s also being an emotional partner wherein you support him in every opportunity that he takes, you appreciate everything that he does for you and you thank him for doing it, you remind him on the things he must do and what he must not. Just because you know that you can always keep him on his feet, doesn’t mean you can manipulate him. You understand him not just as a partner but as individual too. you help him in every way showing him, that in a relationship, there’s no “I” or “you”, there’s only “we” and “us”. You know also that a man has their ego, and even when it become a little irritating sometimes, you still understand that it’s a part of his nature. A girlfriend is not just a term, it also has responsibilities that every girl must know. You’re a friend, a sister, a second mom, a teacher, and a best friend.
Being a boyfriend
Being a boyfriend is not being “the man” for your girl. It isn’t just about buying things for her, paying the bill at a restaurants, and holding doors open for her. It’s not about letting her win the arguments or little fights you have. It’s about being there for her and loving her. That involves a lot more than most people are willing to put forward, like staying up with her until 3am because something bad happened to her that day and doing your damn best to make her feel happy again even though you have to wake early the next day, and opening up to her and letting her spill her emotions onto you. Being a good boyfriend in a lot of ways is like being a good girlfriend. Like the person above me said, “you help him in every way showing him, that in a relationship, there’s no ‘I’ or ‘you’, there’s only ‘we’ and ‘us’.”. Your wants and needs should compliment hers and you should truly want the absolute best for her because she deserves it. Even when she is doing something that annoys you, you just have to understand that it will happen with anyone. A quote I read today really helps put the idea in perspective “A relationship is like a house. If a light bulb goes out, you don’t buy a new house. You fix the light bulb.”. You have to learn to fix things when they are wrong. That’s what being a boyfriend is, it’s doing your best to fix what you can and lover her every step of the way. A boyfriend is not just a term, it also has responsibilities that every guy needs to know. You’re a friend, a brother, a second dad, and a best friend.
