Have you been dating a guy for more than a year but you somehow feel the relationship has stagnated? You want to take things to the next level but he seems comfortable with the way things are. Sucks, right? Maybe you want him to marry you or you want him to make the relationship exclusive. Whatever the case, there are tips you can use to make him take the relationship to the next level.
Warning: some of these tips might sound a little counterintuitive.
Don’t be his wife
So he hasn’t put a ring on it but you are acting like his wife? You’re cleaning after him, you’re cooking for him and you are even planning on making a baby with him. Why should he make you his wife when you are already playing the wife part? A man knows whether he wants to spend the rest of his life with you sooner than you think. You don’t have to play the role of a wife to prove to him that you can be a good wife.
Don’t become invested in the guy
This puts a lot of pressure on a guy and he would probably feel pressured. A man can sense you want to take the relationship to the next level and he might withdraw emotionally. So give yourself and the guy room to breathe. If you aren’t engaged then you are not yet exclusive so don’t act like you are. Relax and take your time to figure out if this is the guy you really want to spend the rest of your life with.
Don’t be exclusive
When you date more than one man you won’t feel the urgency of being with one guy. Besides, you are opening yourself up to new opportunities. You might just find a guy who is better than the one you have your eyes on. Please note the keyword here is DATING not SLEEPING around with different men. You should keep on seeing other guys until the guy you think is Mr. Right wants to commit to you.
Don’t try to win him over
