Always be honest with your man. In my experience I have found that this is always the best policy in a relationship. Even if being honest is painful and something your man doesn’t want to hear, it’s best to be up front.
Never hide things from you man. This relates back to being honest. By this I mean don’t hide important information. No one wants to feel left in the dark. On the other hand, your man probably doesn’t want to know details about trivial matters either. Discern whether the information is something you would want to be aware of yourself and go from there.
Be up front about your financial situation. This is especially important if a couple’s finances are kept separate. Separate finances are the answer for some relationships, but always clue your other half in to major financial decisions or indiscretions. Don’t allow for surprises.
If you find your man looking incredibly sexy on a particular day, let him know. Men love hearing how you feel about them. Don’t put it off for another day, let him know today. Whisper it in his ear. Send him a special e-card.
The best way to communicate with a man is to just say what’s on your mind. If something is bothering you that he did, tell him. However, don’t put him on the defensive. The best approach is to use the “I” word instead of the “you” word. “I feel this way because of ___” is better than “you did that to me.” The main thing is to say it. Don’t let it stew for days until you explode.
If you are not getting what you need out of the relationship, tell your man exactly what you need him to do. Spell it out in no uncertain terms. Don’t go day after day wishing for something different. Make it happen. Again use the “I” word instead of the “you” word. “I think it would be nice if we did this” is better than “you need to do this.” A man will close up and withdraw from you if you constantly nag him and use the “you” word.
