Relationship Guidelines

Relationship Guidelines

In any relationship what is important is understanding and trust. It is important to build and maintain a FRIENDSHIP in your relationship and that you give your partner the benefit of the doubt when times are tough… namely TRUST! Learn to understand each other, know each other, and know what makes your partner happy.

What Men Need to Know: The Woman’s Point of View

  1. The most important thing is being sensitive and romantic in your words and action. Please don’t fake your emotions and say things you don’t mean.

  2. Please listen to what she is saying. Most of the men never try to know what a woman wants because they never listen attentively. Don’t take your girl for granted.

  3. DO build her trust by being faithful and truthful, and always “being there.”

  4. Spend time together, cuddling, kissing, and learn to enjoy foreplay and learn about her body and erogenous zones instead of jumping to the real thing.

  5. Never expect or demand sex.
