Do you ever wish your man would just start treating you the way you want to be treated?
Men seem to have evolved physically from the apes, but at times, their chivalry and manners seem to go back to the days of the primitive apes.
Here are a few tips that you could use while you’re with your man to make him learn a few manners himself.
Getting him to open the car door
The next time the both of you go out and he parks the car and is about to step out, place your handbag on your lap and start to go through it as you continue to sit in the car.
Pull out your lip gloss or check your face. Do something and pretend to be completely engrossed checking your face.
He’ll probably get tired of waiting for you to come out, and he’ll just walk over to your side, and open your door for you.
This is when you flash your cutest smile and say “awww… that is sooo sweet of you” or “it’s just so sweet of you to do that. Thank you…” he’ll get the hint, and do this more often, at least wherever possible. If he still doesn’t get it, you still have your handbag to do it all over again.
Getting him to open doors at restaurants
After a good meal at a restaurant, as you walk towards the door, take his arm in yours and hold hands as you lean towards him. As you get near the door, slow your pace just a little bit and allow him to get to the door first.
It’s obvious he’ll push the door open. This is when you fasten up just a bit and walk through the door first, even if it doesn’t come naturally to him to allow you to walk through first. When you step out, catch a glance at him and just smile, and look away but hold that smile on your face. He’ll be very curious to know why you’re smiling. And when you tell him how sweet he was to open the door for you, that moment will be something he’s going to remember for eternity.
Buying you flowers
It’s not too hard to let your guy know that you love flowers. He probably knows that already, but he might just have forgotten that special gesture of getting you flowers over the months or years.
The next time you walk past a florist, take time to smell the flowers. Stop by the flowers and tell him how beautiful it looks. He’ll definitely pick them up for you. You could brush his cheek with your hands or give him a kiss, and let him know how nice and special you feel. Don’t be surprised when your guy knocks on your door the next week with a beautiful posse of flowers!
