The first time I realized guys were complicated was when I was 10 years old. I was in the park with my kiddie boyfriend and I asked if he liked me. Do you know what his response was? I'll tell you.  He punched me in my arm and said "duh."  Now what type of love is that?! Well ladies, the complicated nature of men does not go away with age. In fact it might get worse. However, throughout my years I have learned that winning the affection of a man is pretty simple. Here's what has worked for me.

Be Genuine.

Guys love a woman who isn't faking the funk. Be yourself, and nothing else. If he doesn't like who you are in the raw, then he probably isn't the right one for you. Honestly, it's easier for me to just be my naturally weird self than to pretend be the cool girl that I think he wants. 

Be The Girl That Can Do Both

As women, of course we are a lot more in touch with our feelings than men are. But don't be the girl who is all feelings and no fun. Guys love a woman that can snuggle them in love, but can also be a great friend and make them laugh. I've noticed that the relationships that last the longest are the ones where the couple have both, love and fun.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Don't be afraid to do things you've never done before. If he likes sushi and you've never tried it, go out and try it with him! The worst thing that could happen is you don't like it, but at the end of the day, at least you have a great experience to look back on, with someone you care about. For me, stepping out of my comfort zone was wearing less makeup for my guy. That was a big deal for me. But I tried it, and the more I do it, the better I feel about it. Turns out, he loves it. It turned out to be a win-win situation. So don't be afraid to be uncomfortable because it may lead you to something great.

Even though these tips have worked for me, at the end of the day, the one for you won't care what you do. He will love you regardless. Just make sure that you're having fun, enjoying your life, and living every moment to the fullest. Let's face it, you only get one life to live, with or without a man, so you may as well go all out! 

Wishing you the best in your love life,
