Everyone likes to have some form of privacy, thoughts and time to themselves. Men especially don’t like to talk about their problems, they would rather keep it to themselves and work it out. Understand when your partner wants to be left alone and respect it. In fact, give him space sometimes and use that time to also work on yourself.
Don’t try to pressure him into talking if he doesn’t want to or be too clingy to him. Even when you go out together to a party or something like that, don’t try to watch him like a hawk or be by his side at every second.
Give him some breathing space and time to himself. You both were separate individuals before you became a couple and you definitely have things that you do individually. Give yourselves time for such things. You both should be able to have some personal time and space to yourselves (without it becoming a big deal!).
In 95% of the cases, how you looked the first time your partner saw you was what attracted him to talk to you. This proves a valid point as to why you should not relent on looking good at any point in your relationship, even in marriage.
Most women tend to cut back on their physical appearance once they have stayed in a relationship for a long while forgetting that “looking good is good business”. There is a joy that a man feels knowing that his woman is desirable and pleasing to the eye. Don’t forget that he also sees lots of other women out there who are putting on their “A Game” in appearance.
Clean up nice, put on beautiful and fitting clothes, put on a bright smile, be yourself and be happy.
