  How to keep your boyfriend happy- by Editor

Relationship blossoms if both partners are happy to be together. Learn how to keep your boyfriend happy and take a small effort to flourish your love relationship.


Gaurav and Sadhna are going to celebrate 3rd anniversary of their relationship. They are madly in love with each other. Gaurav loves gajar ka halva prepared by Sadhna. He says that Sadhna is his support. Gaurav got promotion last month and he gives all the credit to Sadhna. She believed in him and motivated him when he went through the low phases. Sadhna knows what it takes to keep him happy. Now it is your turn to unfold the secrets to keep your boyfriend happy.


Compliment him

Who says only girls like to receive compliments? Guys too love receiving compliments. Give your boyfriend a chance to be on a cloud nice. Make sure that you are complimenting him because you mean it. Admire his new sturdy motorbike. Admire his new hair style. Praise him for his achievements on career front.


Cook for him

It may sound cliched but the way to man's heart is through his stomach. You do not have to be an expert in cooking but trying your hand on some cooking and making delicious preparations for him will make him flatter your cooking skills. As Shakespeare said that course of true love never did run smooth, you may come up with terrible recipes but your sweetheart will be happy that at least you cooked for him.


Give him a nickname

Pick up a cute nickname for your love. This nickname can resemble to his qualities or personality. The nickname you give to your boyfriend should be based on his positive traits and not negative ones. You may call your boyfriend 'hot chocolate' if he is tall, dark and handsome. You may call him 'sugar cube' if he is charming and cute. Look at the snap of your beau and you get inspiration to come up with an exciting nickname. He will go crazy for you when you will call him by that name.


Respect him

Respect makes relationships deeper and stronger. Respect his decisions. Respect his family and friends. Respect him. Appreciate his efforts to make your relationship do well. Show considerations for his beliefs. You must be thinking what about my values? Do not worry, go with this old saying, respect given is respect earned.


Do not be a nag

The deeper you go in a relationship your expectations about each other grow. Do not try to change him. You are in love with him as you like him how he is. Avoid nagging on trivial issues. Stop complaining about trivial matters. Sometimes you nag as you care but anything in excess is not good. 'Be responsible', 'you are being so careless', 'take out more time for our relationship', are you finding these expressions familiar. Quit nagging and make your relationship lively.


Be an open book

Do not keep any secrets. You do not have to tell everything from your past but the more you tell the better. Do not keep important things in your life under the wrap. Let your boyfriend know the thick and thins of your life. It makes a lot of difference to know something from you and get to know something about you from someone else. Keeping secrets can be maligning for your relationship.


Support him

You are the important part in his life. If he will get your support in whatever he is doing or whatever he is aiming for, he will surely succeed in his task. In the relationship you both are incomplete without each other but that does not mean you should be completely dependent upon each other. If he is going on a family holiday greet him a happy journey. If he is going to be the part of cricket tournament be there to cheer him up. Your support counts a lot.


Do not be over possessive

Being over possessive can be harmful for your relationship. Do you feel envious when your boyfriend talks with someone who is of opposite sex? Respect the freedom of your lover. Give him some space. 'Do not be over possessive,' is one of the significant dating advices. Avoid clinging to your partner too much. Avoid seeking explanations for everything he does. Avoid asking questions such as, 'where were you?' and 'who was that girl?' stop being a doubting Thomas.


Shower him with love and affection

Wear your heart on your sleeves. Guys love public display of affection. They too need their share of hugs and kisses. Say 'I love you' frequently. Leave behind a love note in his book saying, 'I can not live without you, you make my life worthwhile.' Occasionally surprise him with a bunch of fresh flowers and gifts. If he is arguing with you kiss him, he will forget for what he was arguing. Send him cute text messages saying how much you are missing him.

Now you know most of the tricks to keep your boyfriend happy. So what is on your mind? May be you are thinking about buying a surprise gift for him or you are thinking of all possible nicknames you can give to your sweetheart. You are lucky that you have that true love that makes ride worthwhile. Good luck!

Comments:   Show affection every now and then. Really boys do not like girls who do nagging. My boyfriend has lots of friends and he is crazy about biking and all stuff. I let him enjoy his own time with his buddies where he goes fro tracking, bike racing, clubbing and surfing. I am not that much into adventure. So at that time I spend time with my girlfriend doing shopping and going out to watch all latest girly movies. My boyfriend says I behave immature sometimes but he appreciates that I do not nag. Some of his friends are going through a bad phase only because their girlfriends do not give them enough space. I believe in total freedom. Giving enough space to each other keeps relationship lively and fresh. Being possessive or clinging to your partner is not worth. But when you two are together do not let anyone interfere.

Comments:   I try everything to keep my beau happy. But sometimes I think he does not care that much. I know he loves me but I even feel that he may cheat on me or just stray away. Recently there are lots of arguments happening between us. I have few questions. I would appreciate if I would get answers to them. Should I break up if my boyfriend is not spending enough time with me? Should I reconsider my relationship if he is get into arguments with me? Many times I think that my boyfriend is not happy with me. I have tried many things to impress him. I hangout with his friends occasionally and even buy gifts for him. He too surprises me with gifts on special occasions. But I am really confused about his behavior sometimes.

Comments:   Our relationship is going great. I do many crazy things for my boyfriend which keeps him happy. In the last week I enrolled for craft class. I made scented candles for him in the shape of heart. He just loved those candles. When I went at his home, we had candle light dinner where he used candle made by me. Occasionally I cook for him. I try making various continental recipes for him. He loves pasta and biryani which I make. Soon we are planning to tie a knot. I think my boyfriend is near to perfect. I believe firmly in communicating. We fight but we sort out our fights very soon. Yep! My BF is quite happy with me and I am happy with him too. This article is really nice. I got good ideas to impress him from your article.

I was with him throughout the mourning period and observed the rituals like going veg etc .... they were small gestures for me but after that he said that I meant alot to him and he was sure we´ d see all of what life had to bring together . That will remain the pillar of our relationship !

Comments:   Kiran, relationship should be based on the rule of give and take. It is not fair if only you keep showering him with gifts, treats, praises whatever. He should too shower you with love, affection in return. Do not head for break up directly. Things can be sorted out. Talk to him and find out what is bothering him so much. give him some time. See how things are going after a while and then decide.

Comments:   I just recently broke up with my boyfriend, and it hurts a lot because we both have strong feelings about each other. but we constantly found ourselves arguing about everything. When i think about whether i truly loved him or not, the answer is absolutely. But we both wanted something different, but the same, in a since. We both wanted more appreciation. So after discussing it and laying it all out on the table, it was clear what needed to happen.We have broke up and dated several times, but this time was different. We realize there is someone out there for each of us who will make us happy.I wish it was him, my baby, but we are sure we want something different...

Comments:   I´ ve been dating my love for about 7 months. We´ ve never really got into a fight, we´ ve had a our disagreements but we never fight.. He told me he can´ t fight with me it´ s impossible. He treats me like a princess, and he just showers me with he love, praise, and gifts. I tell him that he doesn´ t need to buy me things all the time for me to love him, and that I love him for him. But he still seems to think he HAS to pay for everything. I do everything I can to make him happy, I love him, and he loves me. I hope this love lasts forever. 3
