Relationships are all about compromise. Whether you have been in a relationship for years or are in a brand new relationship, you are bound to come across some differences between you and your significant other. There are a few boyfriend and girlfriend tips to help keep your relationship going as smoothly as possible.


Appearance is important for both the boyfriend and girlfriend to remember. How well you take care of yourself is a good indication of how well you can take care of your significant other. Regardless of how comfortable you are with each other, look your best when heading out in public---the sweatpants are still a perfectly acceptable look for spending a night on the couch. Guys, remember to shave, brush your hair and fill your closet with a few nice outfits to take your girlfriend on the town. Girls, get dressed up for your boyfriend every once in awhile. Look sexy and be confident in what you wear.

Take it Slow

Take your relationship one step at a time. Too much too soon can send any boyfriend or girlfriend running in the opposite direction. Moving too fast can scare your significant other off. It is good to let your significant other know how you feel. Just be careful of the response you may get in return. Your significant other may feel the same way or it may take a little bit of time for them to reach the same level of affection.

Talk to Each Other

Communication is an essential part of any relationship. Communication may seem like a no-brainer, but failure to communicate can cause your relationship to take a turn for the worse. Boyfriends and girlfriends need to let each other know how they feel. You need to know what is going on in each others' lives. You don't have to share all the details---especially in a new relationship---but you should not bottle up any concerns, needs or worries. In the long run, not communicating can put an end to what was once a perfectly healthy relationship.


This tip is mainly for the boyfriends. Show your girlfriend you care by brushing up on your manners. Watch your language, avoid being lazy and treat a girl with respect. It also does not hurt to open doors, buy her flowers or help her to her seat. It is the little things that will likely make a girl's night each time you go out.

Avoid Nagging

Avoid playing the role of the stereotypical nagging girlfriend. Allow your boyfriend to have his own time and to be able to spend time with his friends without you. A boyfriend/girlfriend relationship is not a marriage and you do not need to be together all hours of the day. Additionally, if you bring up a topic with him and he avoids it, let it go. You can always address the subject at a later date.
