Gifting someone is one of the most thoughtful things one can do because it makes them feel special and loved. But before receiving that gift, your partner needs to identify what you love/like because it will guide him/her. If you have been wondering what to get your boyfriend or girlfriend, here are some gift ideas for every stage of your romantic relationship:
- A few dates stage
This stage is when the relationship is new and it can be difficult to think of what gift to give because you are observing what your partner likes. When there are a few dates, you can simply opt for a bottle of wine, go out together, a home cooked meal or pocket friendly accessory like a nice pen or bracelet.
- A few months date stage
This starts from four months onwards. At this stage you will want to pick something personal but useful. This should be a gift that shows you have put some thought into it. The gift should be something practical that can be used later even if the relationship will not last. This will be one part of the memories you had together.
For this stage, it’s more knowing gifting your partner regards their personality. For instance; if they love to read gift them an interesting novel.
- The One Year plus stage
For this stage you have dated for a year onwards. For couples that have been together for a year and more may want to do something bigger and memorable. Opt to take your partner for a surprise getaway weekend or surprise him/her because at this point you already know your partner. This is where you can get creative especially intimately. Just think outside the box.
- The Happily Married stage
Once you say ‘I do’ to one another this means it’s a long term commitment. At this stage you already know your partner well and it’s so easy to gift but it may be challenging. This is because at these stage there could be kids involved and the responsibilities could double up and gifting is never a priority anymore. To keep the relationship going, treat your spouse to a spa date, go for zip lining, a night out at your first clubbing spot, baby sit the kids together or attend a stand-up comedy.
5 things women do when they are CHEATING
We have been conditioned and programmed to believe that men cheat most however the gap is fast closing. More and more women are stepping out of their marriages and partners for reasons best known to them.
While it may difficult to find out exactly when a woman is cheating, there are certain behaviors she will display that can give her away.
To identify whether she is cheating, below are signs you need to watch out for.
- She nags a lot
Granted women can nag and that is nothing unusual. But what you need to watch is her constant nagging. She will nag about everything from the smallest to the biggest issues. If this is happening it could indicative of trouble. She will begin to magnify her partner’s imperfections and if she is smitten by the other man she will use that as an excuse to break up.
- The ‘We’re just friends‘ line
This is a classic explanation women used when asked about the other man. If you ask her, pay attention to how acts and answers. If she’s uneasy and refuses to give you eye contact and divulge more, chances are she is seeing him.
- She’s distracted
Women are naturally great listeners and attentive creatures. If you notice she is losing interest and barely pays attention to what you’re saying, that means something else is playing on their minds. If she is serious about the other man, chances are her mind is occupied with ways she can leave you.
- Backs out of confrontations
When asked directly by her significant other whether she is cheating or not, chances are she will not admit and try everything possible to avoid confrontation. She will remain silent, leave the conversation hanging or turn it around on you.
- Loses interest in physical intimacy
No matter how good she was getting it, she will lose interest in having sex if there is another man in her life. In most instances, this could the reason why she will pull away, act cold and distant. Kisses are quick and hugs are short could be a sign she is not interested in intimacy. Reason being she could be getting it elsewhere.
