Neglect of your boyfriend or partner can ruin an otherwise good relationship. No one wants to feel as if they are not cared about or desired anymore. If you're in a relationship with a man, you want to make sure that you're not neglecting him in any way. Here are four signs that you might be neglecting the man in your life.
If your man asks you on dates and you scoff at his ideas, he may begin to feel like you aren't interested in him or his ideas. Dates and weekend plans can't always be about what you want. If you never go along with his date ideas and experience things he loves with him, he will begin to feel neglected. It's important that you let the man you're with know that he can count on you to support his ideas. If you're used to saying "no" to his suggestions, start saying "yes" and watch him beam. Don't assume you won't have fun because it's not something you chose.
If your mom, sister, cousin, best friend calls you up and you go running no matter what you're doing with your boyfriend, he is going to feel like he doesn't really matter. Of course there are emergency situations that cannot be ignored. If you don't want to go out when your boyfriend asks, but the second your friend asks, you're slipping on your shoes and running out the door, this will cause your boyfriend to feel neglected. He's going to rightfully feel as though he's not on the same level as everyone else, but lower on your priority list.
You're out running errands all morning and you stop to pick up your favourite coffee before heading home. That's all well and good, but did you consider picking up a treat for the man in your life? If you're constantly treating yourself while forgetting about your boyfriend, he will notice that you never seem to think of him. One of the sweetest, most thoughtful things you can do is show the man in your life you were thinking about him while you weren't together. It doesn't have to be a big, expensive purchase to show you care. Picking up his favorite candy bar or magazine will put a smile on his face.
Intimacy is very important to any romantic relationship. If you've been with your man for a long while and your romantic life has been lacking lately, this is something that should be remedied. If you're the one making excuses for not having sex, your man will begin to feel neglected. It's important to stop making excuses to not be intimate and make excuses why it shouldn't wait. Chores, laundry, and watching your favorite TV show can all wait. Physical intimacy will make not only him, but you, feel good.
Neglecting the man in your life can lead to relationship trouble and hurt feelings. Sometimes when you're in a relationship for a long time you stop doing the things you were so eager to do in the beginning when you were trying to win him over. But these things are still important, no matter how long you've been together.
