Relationships scare me, fact. Hence why I’ve been rocking the single life for quite a while now. It wasn’t until recently that I met a guy that made me realize that maybe my heart isn’t made of stone. In the past few months he’s somehow managed to break down my strong independent woman wall brick by brick and now I feel totally exposed.
We are banging (regularly) on the door of being official and the thought is a little scary. As I said it has been a while since I’ve had a proper boyfriend, so I have had to familiarise myself with the rules of what’s acceptable and what isn’t. When you’re single it doesn’t matter if you don’t shave for three weeks, fart constantly or go out and kiss a stranger. However, these should probably be avoided if you’ve got a man in your life, and want to keep that man.
Of course, we should be ourselves – no girl should change herself for a fella and vice versa. This being said I am a firm believer that we should probably keep some things in our lives to ourselves, especially at the start of a new relationship. I’m sure you know the kind of shit that I’m referring to, but if not here are a few suggestions on what you should avoid doing in front of your boyfriend.
1. Talk about your number
Unless you have been a saint throughout your whole life, he doesn’t want to know about how many other Ps have entered your V. Even if he says that he doesn’t care, he’s lying. Keep it to yourself.
2. Compare him to your ex-boyfriend
Would you enjoy it if he told you an anecdote about the time he took a trip with his ex-girlfriend to Paris? Unless it was the place he dumped her after spotting you in a crowd full of people the answer is no.
3. Hook up with someone else
I think this one speaks for itself. If you’re wondering why then you should probably take a long hard look at yourself.
4. Let him see you bleach your mustache
I’m aware that not all ladies do this because not all ladies have to. I think men are way too fragile to handle the idea that a woman could potentially get a fuzzy mustache, so your safest bet is to keep it to yourself.
