Don’t be overdramatic.
We all like to think of ourselves as level-headed, calm and collected but sometimes we can be a bit overdramatic (by a bit, I mean a lot). So, one of important keys to a lasting relationship is to not be overdramatic. I will admit, sometimes, it gets you what you want. For example, telling your boyfriend how much you love that purse/shoes/dress/whatever and how you’ll just die without it, may push him to get it for you for a special occasion. But, most of the time, it just annoys him.
From what I’ve learned, if you make a big deal about everything, then nothing is a big deal. It’s like the boy who cried wolf. Being overdramatic makes small situations seem like big problems and if it happens enough, you could send him running. Most guys are looking for girls who are drama free (sorry ladies, they just don’t thrive on gossip and conflicts like we do). So, if you’re being too overdramatic, he’s gonna freak out. Even if he decides to stay, he’s not gonna be happy with your behavior. When there’s really a problem that bothers you, he’s not going to take it seriously because he’ll think you’re just overdramatic again. To prevent this from happening, try to stay level-headed, calm and collected. Don’t freak out about everything and don’t be a drama queen.
