Maybe you occasionally ask for his advice and let him open the pickle jar. You're able to welcome him into your life, and you're confident in who you are, what you want, and how to get it. All this time we thought being low-maintenance was the key to getting the guy. Turns out, it's better to be a high maintenance woman.
You also make and keep boundaries, expect him to keep his word, and expect to be treated special. As a grown-up woman looking to share her life with a grown-up man, not expecting anything only gets the guy who doesn't want to give you anything.
If a man starts out feeling interested in you, there are specific things you can do that will quickly create the kind of emotional attraction that will make him want to connect with you on a deeper level…
If you’ve ever thought when you meet a guy, “Oh, he’ll never go for me – I’m not his type,” or “I’m unlucky in love and will always mess up relationships”, then you’re the only one getting in your own way.
Women who are successful with men tend to have something in common: they are able to enjoy themselves in the moment and not think too far ahead. And you can give it to him in a way that will make the relationship more fulfilling for both of you.
Part of the attraction a man feels for you at the beginning is that you are new to him, and he’s like a little kid discovering all the amazing things about you. Create tension and interest by not always doing or saying the “obvious” thing.
