A great relationship means giving and receiving affection. To be able to do that, you both need to know one another’s likes, dislikes, wants and needs. That can only happen if you get to know each other at a deeper level. For that, you need time, patience, putting in the effort and the four things below.

#1. Learn to communicate

If you want to get to truly know one another, you both need to learn to listen and to make the other feel safe enough to share their deepest desires, secrets, fetishes, fears and hopes. You both need to get to the point where you are comfortable enough to honestly and openly discuss any topic, no matter how bizarre it might seem to an outsider.

#2. Be direct

In a relationship, you need to be able to express clearly what you want, otherwise you will make your partner start assuming what you want or don’t want, what you like or dislike, and that never ends well.

Being direct does not mean that you need to be brutal in your approach to making your wants known. You can be direct and, at the same time, stay feminine, kind and sweet.

#3. Take the lead

Nowadays it is not something special for women to take the lead in various situations, be it asking for a first date, or even asking for friendship. Inside the couple, if you notice that your man is the shy type, or he does not know exactly what you want, don’t hesitate to help him understand, don’t hesitate to take the lead in showing him the right direction.

But do it in your own feminine way. Men don’t usually like to be told what they need to do, but don’t mind being shown or given hints. Taking the lead in certain situations can even help lower the pressure on your man to always guess what you want and act accordingly.

#4. Seduce him

This is a woman’s most powerful weapon, and it does not mean that you need to trick your man into doing your bidding. It only means that, by being a true woman and using all the tools in a woman’s arsenal, you are able to easily reach into your man’s mind and make him understand what is it that you want from him, in a way that he will totally enjoy.

The bonus part is that he will not feel pressured to do your bidding, but will do it of his own free will, because he likes how he perceives you and enjoys being with you.
