The Keys to Making Her Happy
When it comes to women, men continually whine about not knowing how to make them happy. Guys think the secret to a woman's happiness is hidden away under lock and key, and they bang their heads against the wall trying to get the padlock open. Guess what? It's really not the rocket science you think. It's actually pretty darn simple. So here goes, fellas. Get a pencil and take some notes, because here are some quotes from famous people that may help get you started in the right direction.
"My wife and I were happy for 20 years. Then we met." – Rodney Dangerfield.
Becoming a couple is awesome, but maintaining your individuality is equally important. Think about the things that attracted her to you in the first place, and vice versa. Do you still keep up your six-pack abs? Do you woo her the way you did before you got her into the sack? Do you pick up the slack if she has to work late? Does her career hold the same importance as yours? Regardless of how long you're been together, ask yourself if you are the same man she fell for and have you allowed her to continue to be the same woman.
"Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved." - Victor Hugo.
Every woman wants to feel that she is the most special person in your life. This doesn't mean saying "I love you" a hundred times a day. Not to be overly cliché-ish, but actions do speak louder than words and it's the simple things that count. Look at her when she is talking to you, pick up that five-dollar bouquet of flowers in the supermarket, and bring her a cup of coffee or offer to rub her shoulders before she has to ask. Convince her she is "it" for you.
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife." - Frank Guida.
Jimmy Soul sang this tune in the 50's and the times sure have changed – or have they? Hey, you've got your standards, right? She's got to be a ten. Of course once you get that glam on your arm you discover you have nothing to talk about, she's a dud in the bedroom and she packs more drama than an NCIS series. Perhaps it's time to perform a priority check. Long term relationships are built on compatibility, mutual trust and admiration. And like Jimmy infers, it doesn't hurt if "she sure can cook."
If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story." – Orson Wells.
Dreams and goals are important; they are what drive us. But if you focus solely on the finish line, you might just miss the ride of a lifetime. If you want her to be happy, she needs to know that you are happy. Savor the here and now; let her see your contentment in the relationship. Tell her how she fulfills you in the present so that she'll want to stick around for the future. Let each new day be your happily ever after.
