Most people think that when you catch the one you’ve been chasing that the game is over. Not completely. True, you have them now so the competition has died down, but it hasn’t ceased. To help insure that you keep your man or woman, you have to make sure that you keep it nice and clean at all times. What do I mean by this? This can be taken many ways and all ways should be considered. I don’t feel that it is anything to worry about because it is really simple to do. The key is remembering to do it!
Give attention- There is nothing like feeling unwanted, ignored or underappreciated. Sometimes it is the small things in relationships that people neglect and it can lead to a big fall out or misunderstanding. Remember to give them some of your time. I understand that you may have to work, want to spend time with your friends or family, or even want alone time. All of that is fine, but you need to also understand that you are in a relationship and just like you give all of those relationships time and attention, you have to give your partner some too. It is one of the best things you can give and it is free!
Keep yourself up-There isn’t a need to look to par every day. No one has time for that, money for that or even feels like doing that every single day. Still and yet, that does not give you permission to be lazy and nasty and just fall off. Make yourself look presentable from time to time. You don’t have to get all fancy, unless you want, but the scarf, du rag, holey, stained, stinking clothes should not be a 4 times a week attire. Honestly, you wouldn’t even want to be with them if the tables were turned!
Satisfy them- We already covered attention, but let’s go a little deeper. In a committed relationship, you have obligations. One of them is to make your man or lady happy and satisfied.
This does not include ridiculous request that are just out of the question, but don’t be afraid to try something new or do something that you can really care less about. It’s so cliché, but true. What you aren’t willing to do, someone else is!
Always be prepared for company- I mean this in every way, but most importantly your home. I am not a neat freak, but I HATE a mess. Things piled up, hording, food left out, unkempt floors, a filthy bathroom and so forth. That is unacceptable. Clothes should not be strewn across the floor where any and everyone can see. I personally think that the entire house should be very presentable and maybe your bedroom is where you can be a little more relaxed about things. Not too relaxed though, you never know who may stop by!
