Love is a trans-formative force. A lot of men think that doesn’t apply to them, but then, they find themselves doing “different” things when they fall in love.
Here are some changes men most likely make when they find “the one” ….
For the most part, if you get to the point in your relationship when you feel unwilling or unable to fix things then breaking up may be good for both parties. However, some couples break up over a miscommunication (or a lack of communication) and a good talk could actually salvage things.
Here’s how you know whether or not getting back with your ex is worth your time…
If these lies about men weren’t circulating everywhere we turn, we wouldn’t pass up on great guys and giving the bad ones a chance daily.
Too busy to call
I don’t care how busy a guy is. Everyone goes to the bathroom. Send a text from there. So much conversation between girlfriends is about waiting for a guy to call or text, that we’ve become conditioned to think that’s a normal part of being with someone. Once you meet someone who’s crazy about you, you learn that, if they like you, they find the time to call or text. They are always, in the back of their mind, thinking about when the next time is they’ll be able to text. And they find that time.
Have you ever had a man do something so right, you’ve thought, “Somebody must have taught him that?” I bet you plenty of women in his life, after getting mad at him plenty of times for the same thing, taught him what women do and don’t like. Like this:
Your spontaneity offends us
“Want to get dinner in an hour?” “I’m drunk at a bar. I want to see you, come out!” At first, men think women will read this as, “If I ask to see a women so soon, she will feel I really want to see her.” They eventually learn that we see it as, “If he really wanted to see me, he would have checked what my schedule was way more in advance than this!”
Are you wondering if a guy is serious about you? There are some things guys make a conscious effort to not do for women they’re not serious about. So, if you catch your guy doing these, you can be sure he knew exactly what he was doing. And he is hoping to be in it for the long haul.
Some say that things just “get to us” more than they get to men. That we overanalyze things. That we let things affect our day (or our lives) more than men do. But, don’t be fooled: men have their weak spots too. Their Achilles heel. And, if you say any of these things they’ll be thinking about it for a while. Communication in a relationship is very important as I’m sure you already know, so be careful how you come at him with the following:

To put it simply: sometimes men know they’re doing something wrong (and they’re just too lazy to do the right thing) and sometimes, they don’t know. But as a woman, it’s hard to tell the difference. Here are 7 times he probably didn’t realize he was pissing you off:
I’m not saying that sometimes men don’t give us plenty of reasons to become suspicious of them. But, the issue is, a lot of women live in a state of constant paranoia about their boyfriend’s daily activities and they think that is normal. However, it’s not. And there are plenty of relationships that are free of paranoia. If you’re displaying any of these behaviors, you may have become a paranoid sista yourself:
We can let most of the little passive aggressive comments or teasing roll off our backs. But, there are some things that, when a guy says them, send us into panic mode and ignites way more insecurity than men realize.
What’s one of my favorite things about being single? Not having to deal with the emotional roller coaster that is a relationship. Constantly worrying about someone else’s well being, not to mention having your happiness so closely tied to someone else’s treatment of you, is exhausting. Just one road trip with your man—the arguing about directions, the wondering why he has been silent the past hour, the hoping he actually wants to visit your friends he agreed to visit—can make you need a Prozac.
