How Can I Impress My Girlfriend
Women are generally portrayed as being picky or difficult to impress, and boyfriends and husbands alike wrack their brains, saying "How can I impress my girlfriend?" There are plenty of simple ways you can impress your girlfriend, regardless of the level of seriousness in your relationship, age, and amount of liquid capital (cash).
- Keep it personalized. Women are not picky, women are diverse. To really impress a woman, treat her to things that you know she specifically likes. This can relate to gift-giving, eating out, movie watching, and any other activity you share with your girlfriend. Try to avoid cliche gifts that any girl would like, such as roses, and go for a gift that makes you think of her, even if it is quirky. Take her to a unique restaurant because you know she has always been interested in tasting that style of cooking, or surprise her with a movie from a genre you know she likes when you visit her house. In order to do this, you have to be a good listener, even if it is just catching keywords i.e. "Ethiopian food," while she talks to her home girl on the telephone.
- Take care of a task that's been daunting her. Women enjoy being taken care of by their boyfriends. This has nothing to do with her independence level. In fact, the more independent she is, the more she will desire an equally capable man. If she's been avoiding getting her oil changed, surprise her by taking the car in for her. If she gripes about having to wake up early on a Saturday to do laundry, have it done by the time she wakes up in the morning (I got excited just writing that one down).
- Be great to her girlfriends. Remember, a woman's girlfriends will always be her first love. If you want to impress your girlfriend, impressing her friends is a surefire way to get there. If you see them regularly, interact more, ask them about themselves, be fun and share jokes with them. Listen and interact with her girlfriends as if they were your close friends. If you don't see your girlfriend's ladies often, encourage her to invite them over or suggest a night out with them. A word of caution: do not become overbearing. Show the girlfriends your warm personality, and just as they are laughing at one of your jokes, leave them to their girl time.
Impressing your girlfriend does not have to involve taking her out for an expensive night on the town (though if you're able it'll never hurt), it is about consistently showing her how much she means to you. Show her by taking time out of your schedule to devote towards things you know she enjoys, buying personalized and not generic gifts, surprising her with helpful gestures, and being sincerely sweet to her girlfriends. You will notice your girlfriend become very impressed with you in a very short time.
