So, you’ve been together for a while, but do you think you need to know how to make your boyfriend want you and love you more? Or perhaps, love you better?
Most of the time, girls just learn to accept their boyfriends for who they are. Even though their boyfriends are nothing like the man of their dreams.
And over time, these girls compromise on their own wants and wait for their boyfriend to show the smallest romantic gesture to feel better about the relationship.
Seriously, don’t be that girl.

The truth is, all of us take relationships for granted eventually, even if we don’t intend to at the beginning. But can you really blame yourself or your partner, when either of you doesn’t remind each other about it?
If you want to have a happy relationship and a boyfriend who appreciates you, don’t compromise on your wants and desires in the relationship just to make your boyfriend feel happy. He’ll start to accept you for who you are and take you for granted, instead of realizing how understanding, accommodating, and genuinely nice you actually are.

Your boyfriend is not better than you. Falling in love is a mutual experience between lovers. Have an ego and be confident in yourself. If you truly respect yourself, your boyfriend can’t help but respect you and admire you.
Make your own plans now and then. Go out with your own friends and feel good about yourself, be it in having a good conversation or attracting the attention of another cute guy.
Believe in yourself, and remember that you’re still hot stuff. And the best part, he’ll miss you more when you aren’t available at his beck and call.
Your boyfriend is only a part of your life, not all of it. If you’re always with him or he finds you available all the time, he’ll only take you for granted. [Read: How to stop being taken for granted in a relationship]

This might sound obvious, but for some girls – it’s not. Think about it, if your boyfriend isn’t nice to you, does it make you want him more… or less?
For most people, the answer would be less. We tend to like people better who are nice to us. So, don’t be mean or bitchy, because that will turn him off.
While looks aren’t everything, they certainly are important to guys. They are very visual creatures, and when they see someone attractive, that turns them on.
Sure, it’s easier to bum around in your sweat pants and not wear makeup, but that probably won’t turn him on as much as when you look your best. You wouldn’t like him to be all greasy and smelly, right? So, do the same for him. [Read: How to turn on your boyfriend: 15 tips to get him hard and horny]
Sometimes, couples are together romantically, but they aren’t really “friends.” In order to have a happy, healthy relationship that includes regular physical intimacy, a deep friendship is part of the plan.

And if he doesn’t feel valued, then he may not be in the mood for physical intimacy with you. [Read: How to turn your boyfriend on while texting – 21 steamy sexting tips]
Girls tend to be more passive and submissive. For example, if he asks, “Where do you want to go eat?” And you say, “I don’t care, what do you want, baby?” He might be annoyed that you are always making him make the decisions. So, stand in your power and step up with the decision-making in the relationship.
Gossip is something that guys don’t really relate to very much. In fact, some of them couldn’t care less about it. Just because you find something interesting doesn’t mean he does – and that includes talking about yourself all the time too.
He might roll his eyes and tune you out if you do it too much. And you definitely don’t want that if you want to know how to get your boyfriend to want you more! [Read: 20 Fun things to ask your boyfriend and get to know him inside and out]
Believe it or not, guys hate it when their girlfriend is kind of “stiff” or “dead” in bed. If you just lay there like a starfish without much participation, then your boyfriend will get very bored.

Don’t be available for him anytime he calls you. Don’t change your plans just to be with him.
Let him know that you have a life too, and he needs to take you more seriously if he wants you by his side.
If he flakes, changes plans at the last minute, and leaves you in the middle of a date to hang out with his friends, or cancels a date for silly reasons, don’t accept such behavior. If he walks away, call another cute guy and hang out with him just to get back at your boyfriend. It’s the only way he’ll learn to want you more and respect you.
Pleasing each other should be mutual. If you find that you’re the only one indulging in sweet gestures while he just behaves like a slob, put an end to it and make him work for your attention all over again. [Read: 25 sweet romantic gestures for everyday life]
This is especially important if it’s not your own fault. If your boyfriend’s taking you for granted, and you find yourself being the one who has to make up all the time, ignore him for a while or give him a cold shoulder.
If he really cares, he’ll swallow his pride and come back crawling.
Show off your independence even if you’re just idle and sitting at home. Appear like you’re a girl who can sort her own affairs. He should know that spending even a few minutes with you is a privilege! [Read: 21 clingy girlfriend signs and how to avoid turning into one]

Guys hate it when you treat them like a child. Because it reminds them of their mother!

Yes, girls are more emotional than guys. It’s just in their nature. However, guys do not like it! If you are upset about something, don’t go over into the deep end about it.
Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill. Instead, talk to him more calmly, and he will respond better. He will probably help you solve the problem if you aren’t crazed and dramatic. Guys hate that. [Read: Attention seeking behavior and why someone people go looking for drama]
Many people have a problem taking personal responsibility. It’s just easier to point the finger at someone else instead of looking at yourself and taking ownership for your own words and actions.
So, if you find that you are always blaming him for something, then that surely won’t put him in the mood to have sex with you.
Girls tend to be always thinking about the future of the relationship. They think about marriage, babies, houses, and happily ever after, way more than guys do. It’s not that men don’t think about it, but just a lot less.
So, if you are always talking about or asking what your future is with him, it might make him uncomfortable. And because of that, he may be less inclined to be intimate with you.
