You wanna show your girlfriend your romantic side. No one is arguing against it, you just need to know the right way for how to impress your girlfriend.
When you’re in a relationship, you want to show your partner the best side of you. You probably worked really hard to get to this point in your relationship, but of course, all relationships require constant work and effort. I know, you probably thought that after she agreed to be your girlfriend, you were in the clear. But not so fast. If you want to have a healthy relationship, then you’re going to have to keep up and learn how to impress your girlfriend.
When I would go into a relationship, some of the things I would do when we dated stopped. I didn’t tell myself to stop, but in the back of my mind, I figured I didn’t need to do those things anymore now that I have a boyfriend. [Read: This is how to be the best boyfriend she has ever had]
How to impress your girlfriend
It doesn’t work that way. All these little things that we do for each other, specifically in the beginning of the relationship, forms the relationship itself. It’s important to do things to make your partner happy and vice versa. Relationships are a two-way street. You need to give in order to get.
So, there are a couple things to keep in mind when it comes to knowing how to impress your girlfriend that’ll make her fall in love with you all over again. That’s the goal, right? It’s not as hard as you think it is.
#1 Make a date night at home. You may not be the one to cook on the regular, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make her a date night. If you’re on a budget, making a romantic dinner date at home will do the trick.
You may not cook, but you can learn. She’ll be so appreciative, especially if you’re not known for your cooking abilities. Light some candles, dim the lights, and put on some soft music. Bam! You’ll win her heart. [Read: How to sweep your girlfriend off her feet]
#2 Do something she likes. You may hate the fact that she loves romantic comedies or that she wants to go see a One Direction concert. But you know what will put a smile on her face? You buying One Direction tickets and taking her to the show. Is this something you want to do? No, but this is something that makes her truly happy.

#3 Listen to her. Maybe she had a stressful day at work and wants to tell you all about it. Okay, I’m aware that you would rather watch the game on TV instead, but this really matters to her. If you want to impress her, you should listen to what she has to tell you. It could be good news, bad news, sad news, the point is, she’s coming to you to bend an ear. So, listen.
#4 Clean your mess up. Yes, fellas. I know that you guys don’t have a problem letting the pizza boxes stack up in front of you, but why don’t you clean it up instead of letting her do it? What a surprise it’ll be for her to walk into a clean house, especially when she didn’t lift a finger to do it!
Listen, in all fairness, we’re shaving, plucking, tweezing, and squeezing parts of our bodies before you lay a hand on us. So, just do this one thing for us. [Read: 23 things girls wish guys knew about a girl’s mind]
#5 Ask for her advice. We give good advice. Back in the 1950s, sure, our opinion wasn’t seen as important but this isn’t the 1950s. We’re in the 2000s baby! If you’re in a relationship, her opinions obviously matter to you. So don’t be afraid to ask her what she thinks. It doesn’t have to be advice for you, it can be about a friend or family member.
#6 Surprise her. Who doesn’t love surprises, honestly? Everyone loves being surprised with something they’ve wanted for a long time. Maybe she’s always wanted to go to a spa, so you surprise her with a couples package for the weekend. When it comes to knowing how to impress your girlfriend, always remember that surprises are what bring spontaneity and excitement back into the relationship. So, if you want to surprise her, do it with something she loves.
#7 Show respect. Chivalry isn’t dead. We all know that women are capable to do everything on their own but this doesn’t mean you can’t show respect. It’s not minimizing if you hold the door for someone or defend her during a fight. These are all acts which show your respect to her and to the relationship. That being said, if she gets angry if you hold the door for her, then don’t do it. [Read: How to be chivalrous in the modern age]
#8 Watch what she wants to watch. You don’t have to do this all the time. Naturally, you should be able to compromise when it comes to watching TV. But sometimes we can be selfish and only want to watch shows that interest us. Well, there’s two of you in the relationship, so, why not let her pick the movie or show for tonight? You can pick tomorrow, but tonight, it’s about her. [Read: How to compromise in a relationship without feeling like you lost something]
#9 Make something for her. Yes, I know this may sound lame. Almost as if you’re making something for your mom, but trust me, we love this. When you make us something, it takes extra time and effort than buying something generic. You can make her something that she needs if you’re crafty or something sentimental like a photo album of you two.
#10 Compliment her. Everyone loves receiving compliments. Of course, you want to make sure that you don’t do it too frequently or else it becomes forced. But, when she’s looking sexy or has a great t-shirt on, tell her. When the moment strikes, don’t be afraid to tell her how to feel about her. She’ll love it, and it shows that you’re still attracted to her. [Read: 50 really cute things to say to your girlfriend to make her blush]
#11 Send her love notes. Maybe you had to leave for work early this morning, so write her a romantic love note wishing her a beautiful day. Yes, I’m aware you can text her, but that’s not the point. You want to impress her, remember!
Going the extra mile to do something like this shows her that you care. Anyone can send a cute good morning text, but not many will write a good morning note and leave it by the bed.
#12 Do something cheesy. Every once in a while, cheesy will steal the heart of your girl. What can I say, we do love cheesy actions. You can buy her a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, who cares what it is. The cheesier the better. Trust me, she may hate cheesiness, but she won’t be able to resist.[Read: 15 atypical secrets that’ll impress any girl in your life]
