It’s dangerous to generalize, but a vast majority of the time, girls tend to be more emotionally invested in their relationships compared to their male counterparts.
Babes are just usually more empathetic and kind than men are. Sometimes, men can be turned off by how much girls invest themselves in relationships. We hear the phrase crazy girlfriend thrown around all the time; used as a way to describe girlfriends who are overly clingy and needy.
Guys, you just need to understand that babes generally have lots of love bottled up inside of them. They need to be able to express this love in various ways and means. It’s hardwired into their DNA. Just be thankful that she has chosen you to be on the receiving end of this love.
Make it easier for her to love you and don’t ever call her crazy (even when she’s acting like it). Try your best to reciprocate that love and make her feel appreciated. If you feel like you’re doubting your relationship and whether or not you should push forward together as a couple, just try reassessing the situation. Look at it from an objective perspective and play it cool.
She understands your primal needs for solitude and privacy. She knows that there will be days where you just want to be left alone to your own thoughts. She’s ready to give you space at any time you ask it from her. She supports you whenever you feel the need to just get away and take a breather. Whether you need just a few hours or a whole week apart from each other, if she’s ready to give that to you and still love you, then that means she’s worth keeping.
2. Your family becomes her family too
She buys gifts for your brothers and sisters. She’s always checking up on your parents. She’s even friends with some of your cousins. She knows how important your family is to you and so they’re important to her as well. She knows how much you love them, and since she loves you so much, she also exerts efforts in showing her love and care for them too. She really would love them the way that you do if you asked her to.
3. She treats your friends like she does her own
Your friends are the people who keep you sane. They’re the ones you can fall back on when your work problems are driving you crazy. They give you perspective on life and help you understand the things that you just don’t get. They’re ready to grab a beer with you whenever you feel like taking the edge off. So it’s perfectly understandable for her to know how important your friends are to you. She’s desperate for them to like her because she wants them to know that she’s good enough for you. She knows you value your friends’ opinions on everything, and so she always wants to win their hearts over for your sake.
4. She’s your most loyal supporter
You are a young and thriving young man. You have many dreams and your potential has yet to be fully maximized. You are struggling but you accept this struggle, because you know that you will succeed someday. She also knows how hard it will be for you when you’re fighting for your dreams. She knows that you won’t always be a joy to be around, but she sticks it out with you anyway. She knows that you might need some time and space to work on your dreams, and she’s willing to give it to you.
5. She’s adventurous whenever she’s with you
She’s usually very timid and hesitant but you’ve managed to break her out of her shell. She likes to try new things whenever she’s with you because you give her strength. She’s more willing to step out of her comfort zone as long as you’re by her side. She is unfazed by the prospect of surprises because she know she can handle anything when you’re with her.
6. She’s independent and can manage her own affairs
There’s nothing quite like being with an independent woman who can stand on her own two feet. She needs you for occasional help, but for the most part, she’s got everything locked down. She’s stable financially and emotionally. She can actually survive without you, but she just chooses not to. She loves you despite her own successes and capabilities.
7. She loves all of you, and not just the good parts
She knows all of your flaws. You’re incredibly open to her and she knows all the skeletons in your closet. She knows the deep, dark, and grimy aspects of your life but she doesn’t care. She loves you very much and is always willing to love despite your flaws. She knows you’re not perfect, but she accepts you despite your imperfections.
