5 Ways To Tell How Much You Mean To Him

Ways To Tell How Much You Mean To Him

[Contributed by: Most Brave Girl]

There are times when a boyfriend needs to prove just how important you are to him. If he doesn’t come rushing to your side in these situations, you should probably show him the door.

1. When you’re sick. Not just sniffly, pouty sick, where you want to have a Real Housewives marathon and fall asleep early. If you’re going to be boring and you don’t really need him, give him a break and send him to hang out with his friends for the night. But if you don’t think you can even open your eyes without help, your boyfriend should be there with a thermometer, popsicles, movies, nyquil, chicken soup or whatever else you need.

2. When you have an emergency. When your ride bails, your dog runs away, or your car explodes, your boyfriend should come to your aid. Guys love opportunities to flex their Knight-In-Shining-Armor muscles. If he blows you off and leaves you in the lurch, you should definitely leave him in the dust.

3. When you try to start sexy trouble. If you call your boyfriend from the bath and explain that you need him to help you get dirty before you can get clean, he should be on your doorstep in seconds, confounding all laws of space and time. Better yet, text him something that you would be way too shy to say out loud. Often guys sex drives are triggered by blunt imagery. A good boyfriend will recognize that when his girlfriend reaches out that way, he’d better deliver or she probably won’t reach out again.

4. When you need backup. If you’re both at a party or a bar and you are getting majorly macked on by the resident creep, your boyfriend should swoop in and rescue you. You should definitely try to rescue yourself first, but sometimes creeps get too pushy, which is exactly when you need an attentive boyfriend to help you out. If he doesn’t check in with you after reading your your, "911 need you please or might get roofied" text because he decides it’s more fun to yuck it up with his friends on the other end of the bar, you should definitely find a different date.

5. When you're going to a wedding. You might hate weddings and need someone to suffer with you or you love them and want to enjoy the romance with someone special. Either way, he should definitely be by your side. Good boyfriends know how alluring a wedding can be, so they want to be there to catch you when you fall under its magically romantic spell. They hate imagining that some scoundrel groomsman is going to take advantage of the romance in the air and try to turn it into romance under your bra.

The bottom line: If these occasions aren’t how you want your boyfriend to demonstrate his commitment to you, you have to let him know how he can show you that you’re important to him. Maybe having a date at weddings truly doesn’t matter to you and you prefer being by yourself when you’re sick. If that’s the case, tell him what you need. Remember, the easiest way to tell if you’re important to him is if he pays attention to what’s important to you.
