What are some creepy, yet romantic, date ideas?
Ok ladies, we’ve all been there. Your man isn’t stepping up to the gentlemanly plate. What do you do now? Nip it in the bud. If you don’t deal with these issues from the get-go, you will end up resenting your beau and the relationship will ultimately fail.
First things first, you must be vocal about your feelings. As with any relationship issue, communication is key. Tell him that his actions make you feel unappreciated and disrespected. Lay out what he does that you find rude and tell him how to fix it. If he has to choose between your relationship or holding open a door for you, hopefully he will change accordingly. Make him think about his actions before he lets the door hit you on the way out.
