DiscoverSex & Relationships

Josh's Book - Read it for her



Guys, let's be honest, relationships can be a lot of work!
Sometimes it feels like you're trying to put together a 10,000 piece
puzzle without knowing what the picture is supposed to be,
there are no edge pieces, it's upside down - and you're blindfolded.
But the crazy thing is, you still try! You try to make your girl happy.
You try to give her what she wants. You try to do all the right things,
but sometimes it seems like you still mess things up.
How many times have you been left standing by yourself thinking,
"What the heck just happened?"
Don't worry, you're not alone, my friend.
The world of girls can be a confusing maze to navigate.
My hope with this book is to help put some guideposts in that maze
to help you make it through without too many wrong turns.
Inside, I've shared a bunch of tips that have helped me and my
relationship over the past twenty-six years. I've gone through a lot of
trial and error in that time and, hopefully, by sharing what I've learned,
I can help you avoid some common "guy" mistakes.
You want to keep her, right? Prove it.

Say, "I Love You"

Let’s start this out with an easy one. Go tell your girl, “I love you.”

Sounds simple, right?  Well, think about it.  When’s the last time you actually said the words, “I love you” to her?  And I’m not just talking about a half-hearted, mumbled, “love you” as you’re walking out the door to go to work.  I mean, a stop what you’re doing, look her in the eyes, “I LOVE YOU.”  Was it today? Yesterday?  Do you remember the last time you actually said it?  And, no, texts don’t count.  Kinda’ fuzzy?  I know.  It’s easy to just go through day to day life with the understanding that you love each other.  You might even be thinking, “She knows I love her. Just look at everything I do for her.”  And, yeah, that’s probably true.  But there’s a little corner tucked away in every girl’s mind that holds onto random doubts and “what ifs” - however irrational - and she needs to be reassured from time to time.  Just letting her ASSUME you love her isn’t enough.  She needs verbal confirmation.  You need to say it.  Yes, she sees what you do for her, and she appreciates it and loves you for it, but in this case, actions don’t always speak louder than words.  She knows you love her, but at the same time, you haven’t said it in a while, so do you really? (Yes, your girl actually thinks like that sometimes. No, it doesn’t make sense.) Remember, there’s a big difference between saying you love her and showing you love her.  Both are important and necessary, but there’s just something about verbal confirmation that’s comforting and reassuring for her.  That being said, there’s also a HUGE difference between a passing, “love you” and a sincere, direct, “I love you.”  The “I” makes it personal.  It affirms your connection to her and erases any doubts.  Guys, she needs to hear you say the words.  She needs to KNOW that you love her.

So, tell her. Often.
