Tip#1: Don't give a man more than he gives you.
A man is actually turned off when he gets more from you than he gives. When you shower him with affection, attention, dinners, gifts, and always go out of your way to drive to his place, it makes him think of you as a mother or a friend instead of inspiring his emotional desire for you.
Tip #2: Don't give away exclusivity if he hasn't yet committed.
We become totally, emotionally invested in a man when we're exclusive with him because he has all our time and attention. There's no way we can stop wondering about where the relationship is going. But the more we think about it and talk about it, the more we push a man away.
Tip#3: Don't give him gifts, make him dinner or pay for dates.
If a man complains about paying for everything, let him know you don't care what you do, you feel great being with him, and you don't want to pay. Walking, hanging out in bookstores, having a picnic in a park can all be fun, romantic ways to get close to a man.When you give a man gifts, give him all your attention and energy, and give MORE than you receive, you're OVERFUNCTIONING.
Love isn't a reasonable emotion - and being “nice” and “understanding” and “a good sport” won't get you where you want to go.
