If things between you and your girlfriend do not seem to be as good as they once were, maybe you need to learn how to be affectionate with your girlfriend before she decides to leave you. You don’t get it, what happened? It seems like just yesterday everything was going great and now, she seems like she couldn’t care less about your relationship.
You have read enough books and heard enough advice on TV and the internet to know that if you do not give a woman the affection she needs or give her the wrong kind of affection. She will fall out of love with you. To stop this from happening, you need to learn the difference between giving her the affection she needs and giving her the wrong kind of affection.
The affection a woman needs from a man is not as complicated as it might seem. She needs you to pay attention when she speaks and offer up some kind of contribution to the conversation, like giving her positive feedback on what she is saying. If you should happen to be reading the paper at the time she wants to talk, put it down and listen.
If she feels ignored, she will get bored and move on. So if you been having a problem at work or other area of your life, and are preoccupied when you are at home, talk to her, tell her about it, keep her in the loop. It is vitally important that she feel needed. Also, when talking to her keep eye contact and touch her on the hand or arm. She will feel more connected to you when you do this.
Other ways regarding how to be affectionate with your girlfriend are, hold hands where ever you go and what ever you are doing, offer to brush her hair before bed,
surprise her by sending flowers to her at work for absolutely no reason. Slip a card or note into her lunch bag telling her how much you love her.
Affection does not always have to be some grand gesture on your part or her part, a touch here, a smile when she comes home, ask her about her day, cook dinner and then do the dishes afterward, let her relax. Or, make plans to do something she likes to do.
The wrong kind of affection is when you do things with only yourself in mind and do not take how she feels into consideration. Like coming up behind her in the kitchen and instead of wrapping your arms around her and telling her how good she smells, you reach your arms around her to grab an intimate, unmentionable part of her anatomy without her permission. She will not think this is one bit sexy or playful, it will make her feel degraded and used and the only thing doing this will get you is a night in the doghouse.
Take a look at the relationship and the how to be affectionate with your girlfriend and make the changes if any are needed. If you do not see anything that needs to be changed then ask your girlfriend if there is anything you can be doing differently.
