What if I'm not as pretty as his ex-girlfriend?

I want to be more attractive to him, even though I'm not that perfect like his ex-girlfriend is.


The key thing to remember is that your boyfriend is in a relationship with you because he likes you. There is a reason that his previous relationship didn't work out, and if he thought looks were everything, his "prettier" girlfriend would still be in a relationship with him and not you. A relationship is more than looks, of course, and your boyfriend very likely finds something attractive about you in addition to your personality. If you are truly worried about your boyfriend's thoughts about your looks, sit him down and ask him about it. Tell him that you're worried that he doesn't think you're as pretty as his ex-girlfriend. Once you say something along these lines, he will qualm your fears about it by telling you that he thinks you're incredibly pretty, even more pretty than the girl with whom he broke up. He'll also take the time to tell you that you're a much better person overall than she ever was, and will likely close the conversation out by giving you a hug and telling you how much you mean to him.

Many relationships have an unbalanced love languages. Men show their love often differently from the way women do. You equate love with quality time and attention while he equates it differently perhaps by financial support for example. It emotionally hurts when we are not first priority to our significant other.

What do I write when my boyfriend sends short answers back, and I don't know if I should leave him alone?

Sometimes when I send my boyfriend an email he replies with a short answer, leaving me wondering what to say next. In those moments I don't know whether he wants to be left alone or not, but then the next minute comes an email asking if I'm still there! I'm confused.

He is not Shakespeare. Guys generally say less than women do and his short form communication means that you need to read between the lines. Either he is busy or just giving you quick answers to your questions. Because he expects you to say more back you should have a conversation with him about how you do not know how to respond to his short answers all the time. Hopefully, he will put more effort into communicating with you in the future.

My boyfriend is a very busy person. How can I attract him towards myself?

He is very busy towards his home, and work, for that he gives very less time to me. I can't even talk to him properly. What can I do so that he starts giving time to me also?

Ask for scheduled date nights. You can say that you are super busy with work and home so that he does not feel targeted in the conversation. This way you may be able to get more time with him and make it a habit for him so that he will miss you when you are not around.

How can I tell to my boyfriend how much I love him, but he had a big family problem he is always busy?

How can I tell to my boyfriend how much I love him, but he had a big family problem he is always busy

Write him a personal love letter. Remind him of how much he means to you and how proud you are that he has stepped up to help his family. List several ways that you love spending time with him. This letter will not only let him know that you miss him but he will also be able to refer to it again. Text him daily that you love him before bed and when you wake up.

How can I get the attention of my girlfriend?

She's always busy, I just want her to think of me

Text her your emotions that you feel about her. This will definitely get her attention. Plan a day trip by asking her when her next day off is that coincides with your schedule and whisk her off to a leisure drive somewhere different. Plan ahead where you will stop and eat and what you can do with her while you are there and she will see that you really made the effort. The time in the car will allow you both to reconnect with each other. This is important because we often take our significant other for granted when we are super busy and reconnecting reminds us of what we have been missing.

What should I do to move on? What is the easiet way to forget my ex boyfriend?

We (me and my boyfriend) have been together for almost 4years, but sadly to say, he found a new one when he was working in another place. Until now I heard some issues that his girl is already pregnant, it's so painful and it hurts me so much.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Moving on from a break up is hard enough but when you have no closure and they move on super fast the pain can seem unbearable. He apparently has gotten this girl pregnant so there is not much chance of reconnecting. There are no easy tricks to getting over someone. Especially if you have been with that person for a long time. Day by day things will get better. Avoid going to places that you frequented with him and purge everything that he gave you. You do not have to throw them away but at least, ask a friend to hold onto them until you know that you can look at them without feeling hurt. Prepare yourself to get back into the dating scene. Pamper yourself or go away for a weekend trip with friends.

My boyfriend is always busy, he hardly have time for me, I only see him once a month. My worry is that he is not working but he always claims that he is busy, sometimes I feel that he is cheating on me?

Is he really being unfair or am I just being insecure

Being in a Long Distance relationship can put our imagination into warp factor when we do not hear from our significant other. If you think that he is cheating then you can get a spy app to install on his phone the next time you visit him. You can also look for clues like if he says he is working but you see him posting actively on social media. You are not being unfair if there are long periods of time with no communication in a day. It is understandable that he may be busy for work but he still should have a minute to send a text message while on break or even call you over his lunch period. Perhaps you make the effort for more communication and he will begin to adapt his schedule habits to make more time for you.

My Girlfriend never seem to care for me because she never called me and when I call her she says I Should Hang Up, she will call me back?

I want to know the right topics to talk with her about whenever I call her

Read up on her interests. She is probably getting bored and you both are running out of things to talk about. If you know that she follows a certain blog or watches a TV show then take the time to learn about these.
