Read these easy tips for being a good girlfriend.

So you’re in a relationship and you want to make it last.

How to be a good girlfriend

As you know, there’s no secret to staying together for a long time, but there are some simple things you can do to become the best girlfriend he’s ever had.

Read on to find out what you can do to make him wake up with a smile every day.

1. Be THE “Friend” And Not Just The Girlfriend.

Remember, you are in a relationship.

There has to be a connection and deep intimacy.

Be a companion for him.

Share your interests and respect the opinions of others.

2. Give Him His Space.

Clingy girlfriends are quite a turn-on.

While constantly calling and texting him might seem okay in the early stages of your relationship, he might get tired of it pretty soon.

So if you don’t want to demand his attention, he’ll want to break free and break up.

Show that you trust your man enough to let him live life.

In the end, he will be the one chasing you.

3. Like His Friends.

A good girlfriend doesn’t stir up conflicts between her and her boyfriend’s friends – or worse, make the man choose between her and his friends.

Remember, your friends were there long before you came on the scene, so you must respect that.

They can be silly and childish at times, but they are his friends.

You don’t want him to come between you and your friends, right?

4. Make His Friends Like You.

Another way to get your man’s love and affection early on is to get his friends to like you too.

Your seal of approval is a big pat on your man’s back, and he’ll be proud to have you as a girlfriend.

5. Feed Him Well.

Food really is a great way to a man’s heart.

So while you can’t be in the kitchen 24 hours a day, at least visit it once in a while to whip up something delicious for your guy.

It doesn’t matter if it’s just pancakes or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

What matters is that you are showing him that you want to take care of him by making that effort.

6. Don’t Give Him A Reason To Be Jealous.

Needless to say, a good girlfriend is faithful.

It doesn’t matter if you’re the most beautiful, hottest woman in town and all the guys are drooling over you.

Let your man know that he is the only guy for you and that he has your full attention.

Never flirt with other guys, and let him know he can trust you.

He will also be loyal to you.

7. Trust Him.

Give him enough space for him to believe you trust him.

Questioning him all the time about his whereabouts will only make him feel caged, and you will only appear possessive.

A good girlfriend trusts her man but knows how to set boundaries when that trust is broken.

8. Build Your Pleasant Personality.

Everyone is attracted to a pleasant personality.

Negativity just repels people, regardless of how they are related to you.

The best girlfriends are the ones who have a pleasant personality that makes them easy and comfortable to be around.

He will want to spend more time with you and he will also want to please you.

9. Turn The Complaint Into An Irresistible Request.

So he can be frustratingly childish and confusing at times.

That doesn’t mean you should fire your mouth.

A good girlfriend knows the art of constructively ‘bothering’.

Try not to raise your voice.

Instead, speak to him in a soft tone.

Disarm him with your sweetness and let your concern shine through instead of your need to control, nagging him.

10. Learn To Listen.

So he’s had a bad day and he just wants to complain for the rest of the night.

Let him vent.

A key to healthy relationships is communication, and crucial to that is listening.

Know when to speak, but also know when your man just needs someone to listen.

11. Choose Your Battles.

Do not worry about the little things.

It’s not worth ruining a good day with your man, or even ruining your relationship, over something trivial.

Learn when something is really worth fighting for, but also learn when to leave things as they are.

12. Make Him Feel Special.

Make him feel special and loved.

From something as simple as a massage at the end of a long work day to non-stop weekends with him, remember to go above and beyond to show him how much you love him and how much he means to you.

13. Make Him Feel Appreciated.

See how he treats you and think about the things you do together.

Find ways to say and show him how much you’ve appreciated and admired him throughout your relationship.

This will make him feel good about all the effort he’s put in, which will make him feel good about investing in a long-term relationship with you.

14. Feed His Ego.

It’s no secret that men love their egos.

But men have insecurities too, despite their tough exteriors.

By boosting his ego, he won’t look for other ways “or other girls” to make him feel good about himself.

Make him feel attractive and desirable when you compliment him, but make sure you mean every compliment.

15. Let Him Be The Man In The Relationship.

Men like to feel in control – it’s innate in their nature.

They often want to feel in charge, so let him fill that role.

Let him feel that he can take the lead by asking his opinion on certain things in your relationship and being open to his suggestions.

Also, let him take care of you, even if it means letting him open the door for you and pull out the chair for you to sit in.

16. Be Confident In Your Own Skin.

There is nothing more attractive in a woman than pure self-confidence.

Don’t let insecurities and doubts get the best of you, and he’ll know exactly what kind of woman he has.

He will love you more for it.


While relationships are supposed to be fun and comfortable and not a never-ending struggle or competition, it pays to do your best.

After all, if you care enough about your man, you naturally want to be the best girlfriend for him.

We all have room for improvement, and by following these tips on how to be a good girlfriend to your guy, you can be sure he wouldn’t want to be with anyone else.
