The University of Tennessee has published a study that says that marriages are happier when the wife’s BMI is less than the husbands.I’ve noted my thoughts about the study here on the eHarmony BlogI’m curious what you think.
When you want more affection and romance in a relationship, it’s natural to feel the urge to ask for it or show more of it in the hopes that your efforts will be reciprocated. But doing this will usually work against you. A man will feel like you’re trying to force something out of him, and he’ll sense that you’re only giving to him because you want something out of him. This is called “giving to get,” and it does not inspire a man to be more romantic with you.
There are many reasons why new relationships are challenging. There’s so much to negotiate. So much figure out. One of the more annoying aspects of dealing with a new love is considering how holidays, most notably Valentine’s Day, figures into your new relationship. Consider this situation:
When you’re frustrated that you’re doing more than your fair share in a relationship, do you feel the need to take action and try to talk the man your with into giving more? Sure you do – most women react the same way. And you don’t need me to tell you that most men will resist your efforts.That’s because of something I call “the convincer”. When you try to talk a man into doing what you want, he will naturally become “the resister”. It’s human nature.
At some point while you’re dating a new man, he is bound to do something that makes you feel weird, uncomfortable, or just plain angry. But you’ll probably feel like you don’t want to rock the boat with him.
