This should be your ultimate goal; that if you two should ever break-up, that she’ll never forget you, that you’ve set the bar for the rest of the men in her life.
Treat her with warmth and security. Don’t rock the boat, don’t give her distractions. A relationship shouldn’t make her worry, it should be there, silent in the background, but there nonetheless. I mean make it so that you don’t fight, you don’t give her doubts. Relationships should be smooth-sailing and all that jazz. Don’t be the one to invite turbulence.
Spend money you don’t have on her, even when she doesn’t want it. If you’re saving up for a camera, say, it’s not that hard to use some of the money on dates and what not. Relationships are definitely about sacrifice. I mean what makes you happier? What’s the good of a camera if you’re only going to take pictures of yourself? She’s a human being, keep her happy.
Never let her sleep depressed, angry, or disheartened. Give her a reason to smile and a reason to wake up in the morning. Cook her breakfast at 9PM or write her a love note for every day of the year.
And most importantly, talk to her. A lot of guys get this wrong. I don’t mean talk to her about your day and what your favorite color is. Get to know her and her life’s story. So that one day, when you’re filling out a questionnaire about your girlfriend, or say, doing her UC application for her, you’re going to get every question right.
Be that guy that she’s always dreamt of. You might not be beautiful, or smart, or chiseled like a Greek god, but you’re her boyfriend for a reason. Be that guy she’ll remember when you’re too old to walk.
Hey, just my two cents, but treat her right, bro.
