Celebrating your partner’s birthday in a manner that will make them not forget quickly should always be a concern of yours.
After a while, you might get stuck on the matter of what to do to mark the occasion. That is, you’ll want to do something you have never done before.
If you are at that stage, here are few things that should inspire you or give you some fresh ideas
Surprise birthday party
If you have never done this, maybe now is the time to. You do not need the whole estate dear.
To cut costs, invite maybe just two of his/her friends and two of yours. Should be fun.
Decorate their room or office
With the assistance of his/her colleague or someone at their work place, you could decorate their office with balloons and other beautiful things.
An alternative is to get the assistance of a family member, and decorate their room.
Cook their favorite foods
For women [and men, too], if you are the type that enjoys cooking, then, by all means, you could spoil him silly with two or three of his favorite meals.
It might be serious hard work, but if you are down for it, then you should do it.
Get few candles and light the room. Put on something really nice and make the effort to complement the food with some good looks. Apply little makeup, and get that party started.
He won’t forget easily.
I once attempted to send someone 24 text messages on her birthday; that’s one for the whole 24 hours of the day.
Sadly, I ended up sending just seven or eight, but of course she appreciated it a lot because, frankly, receiving 8 beautifully-written mini poems is quite heartwarming.
Now you might not necessarily do this, but think of some little things you could do.
The cumulative result should sweep them off their feet.
Book a hotel room
For married couples and those who are already intimate to that level, you could book into a nice hotel room for your partner’s birthday.
I’ll let you decide what you do when you get into the room [of course!]
A trip down memory lane
American rapper, Kanye West, recently did something like this for his wife, Kim Kardashian.
He did a compilation of videos from when she was a little girl till when she was about 18 or thereabouts.
Though there might be no video records of your partner to work with, but with some determination, you can pull this off, too.
Get a compilation of pictures from your partner’s mother, and create a slide with their favorite music playing in the background.
And at the end of the video, you could add a clip of yourself wishing them a happy birthday and telling him/her that you have one more surprise for them when you both see later in the day.
And that surprise will be…
Even if you both have been married for a while and have done this a number of times, you should still make it a bit more special than previous times.
Get candles, get some roses on the bed [or some other preferred location in the house] if can afford them, and put on some new sexy lingerie [or any other sexy stuff your partner likes]The point is to make the occasion a special one, and you should indeed make it so
How does a man know that a woman really likes him?
What are the things to watch out for?
When you notice her doing many of these six things listed below for you, you should know that she really does like you, for she would never do them for someone who does not really mean much to her.
She lets her jealousy show
Girls generally like to hide their jealousy because to do this, it means they are willing to let their vulnerability show, and they would never do that unless they really like you.
That’s the only time it’s ever worth it.
This does not necessarily mean she wears her best dress every time just for you, it means she actually makes effort to impress you.
Reveals her deepest secrets
While girls might tell people some parts of themselves, they reserve their deepest, most intimate, even darkest and dirtiest secrets to someone they really trust, someone they truly like.
Admits her feelings for you
Women hate putting their feelings out there except they can no longer help it.
So if she’s spilling her heart out to you, believe her, she has to really mean it.
Makes you food
Ok. This might be a bit general, but this article will not be so complete without adding this.
It might be because she is just nice, but of course, if she always invites you over to come enjoy homemade meals, just know there is a special feeling attached to it.
Allows you treat her badly
If she likes you, then she’ll let you get away with a lot more than you should.
Things that other men [and even her own friends] will never get away with, she'll permit them if it's you doing them.
This is not an excuse to intentionally maltreat women. But, if by chance, you are yet to really get your act right, and a woman repeatedly lets you go scot free, best believe she really likes you.
When a man really likes a woman, how does she know?
What are the things he does that almost always point to the fact that he is genuinely dedicated to her only?
Does he refuse to look or speak to other woman at all, or does he just follow her everywhere she goes?
This article explains five of the things a man does only if he sincerely, genuinely likes a woman.
Remembers details you tell him
Now this is not to say that when a man forgets details, he does not love you.
What this means is that due to the nature of males being less-organised and worse listeners than women, men most times forget stuff almost as soon as they are told, especially if those things are 'trivial'.
So, in the situation where a man remembers every thing... I mean, every single thing you tell him, then, almost certainly, that man does really like you.
Never makes you doubt your importance
Let the obvious be stated once again: men are naturally inclined to be polygamous.
There is a tendency in every man to want to stray, to sample more than one fruit from the tree... and with the abundance if willing women, it is usually not a hard thing to accomplish.
When a man actively reins in this tendency, and goes extra mile to prove to you in words and deeds that he wants no one else but you, best believe him.
Always there for you
Night and day, rain or sunshine, he is willing to do all he can whenever you ask.
That's a sign that he really, really likes you.
Speaks of a future with you in it
When he speaks of his plans for the next six months, he mentions you in it. His plans for the next two years, your name pops up.
Even when he's talking about his plans for the next five years, he somehow manages to fit you in it, what else does that tell you, apart from the fact that he genuinely likes you?
Brags about you
In all likelihood, a very large percentage of persons aged 20 and above must have been in a relationship with at least two people.
So when a guy continually brags about you to his friends, your friends, and anyone who cares to listen that you are the best thing to ever happen to him and that he does not think there is anyone in this life that he could ever love as much as he loves you, then you just have to know that that is a guy who likes you very much.
Due to certain reasons, many relationships do not get to last forever as the lovers dreamt they would.
While that might look and feel terrible at the time, it could be advantageous for subsequent love affairs.
Here are four ways your bad love experiences could make life easier for you in subsequent relationships.
You know when to leave a relationship Sometimes, people stay in a relationship even when it is obviously wrong to do so.
They stay long in the toxicity, hoping for a change that will not come until they get fed up and move on.
In subsequent relationships, due to the experience gained already, such people will recognise the moment a relationship becomes irredeemable, and move on at the very right time.
You learn how to argue without ending a relationship
If you have been in a relationship that ended due to yelling and fighting, and you recognize your role in that breakup, there is every chance that in a new affair, you’d have learnt the skill of expressing your unhappiness without tearing down your partner, and your relationship.
You know what you do not want
One of the best things to take out of a bad relationship is a better idea of things you cannot put up with in a relationship.
If you exit a bad relationship because of your partner’s continuous neglect of his responsibilities to you, surely, before entering into a new relationship, one of the things you will be sure to watch out for, is a man who takes his responsibilities serious.
It’s only natural to avoid the same bad things happening twice.
You learn you're still imperfect
When you look back on your old relationships and how they ended, one of the things you might recognise is that you were not entirely faultless for the way they ended.
And there, is one of the ways your new relationship gets to benefit from those past relationships.
Instead of relaxing, thinking you already know everything about how relationships go, you approach the relationship with a firm idea in your mind of that flaw and the realisation that it has the capability to ruin this present relationship like it did one or some of the previous ones.
The difference between then and now, however, is that you will not allow it ruin the beautiful thing you just found.
It might appear that some guys just find it naturally, effortlessly easy to approach any woman of their choice.
For you, on the other hand, you get scared to approach any woman you find attractive, and no matter how easy it appears to just walk up to her, strike up a conversation and set the ball rolling, you just never seem to know how to go about it.
Well, the five things listed below are just exactly the things you need to break free from shyness and get yourself the girl.
Focus on yourself and build confidence first
These things occur from inside out. When you build on your confidence and become surer of yourself and who you are and what you are capable of, you are about 55% above shyness and fear of approaching women.
Women think differently
Have you not seen instances where a woman ends up with a guy who you, as a guy, thought she couldn't ever end up with?
No matter how gorgeous and out-of-this-world she might look, she remains a woman, a human being like you.
Being scared that she won't be interested in you, and growing timid for this reason is a very wrong move.
You never can tell what she wants, or what she finds attractive. Who says you are not the ideal image of what she wants?
Develop a rapport with women you are not attracted to
Try to become friends with as many women as possible. By doing this, you could learn how to relate with women without the pressure of trying to impress or appear cool.
When you successfully reach this level, you can be assured that somehow, you can hold a conversation with women without stress.
This will greatly simplify your task of talking to women in future situations.
Become boyfriend material
Now consider this: why are you shy? What exactly is the reason behind your fear and trepidation when it comes to approaching women?
Could it be because you know that you are far from what that woman would want? Then work on yourself and become what a woman wants.
When you work on several aspects of yourself and get close to an image of what many women would want their ideal man to look like, a kind of boldness comes from this, and with boldness, your shyness melts away considerably.
Rejection is part of the game
There are only two things that can happen when you ask a lady out. She either says yes or say no.
Ok. The manner of rejection could be embarrassing sometimes, but hey, it's just that - rejection, and it's totally acceptable.
When you get rejected, you move on and shoot your shot in another loop.
Winners do not quit, right?
Women who have been with a man for seven years or more see their sex drive reduce while the single ones in that same duration maintain the same level of libido.
According to a study involving about 2,173 women, which was jointly conducted by University of Turku and Abo Akademi University in Finland, sex drive of women somehow decrease over time when they are with the same partner.
The study, published Psychology Medicine, tries to understand female sexual desire, satisfaction and frequency of orgasms over a period of seven years, and also tries to understand the role played by their relationship status in these things.
The most baffling outcome of this research is that long-term relationships tend to have a negative impact on the way women desire sex.
While the desire for sex reduces, the ability to achieve orgasm remains the same.
So, while it might be worrying that you will not be very eager to have sex regularly, you can be sure that whenever you feel up to it, you can still enjoy sexual activity to the fullest.

NOW GIVE ME YOUR EARSWell, in my little years as a relationship counselor, I’ve seen more than my brain can carry as far as a relationship is concerned. To be factual, I am beginning to see the youths of these 21st century wallowing in unimaginable defeat in the bid to find love and sustain it.
People start relationships with feelings but end it with reasons.
You hear folks who say *Ehm… I had great feelings for him when we started* and another one would say *See… She was so loving, humble and respectful when we met*…
Few months down the line, their once upon a time romance turned sour, the feelings they once had nosedived and they discovered right there that they are heading nowhere again!
Now you begin to hear, “He’s not caring… She nags too much… He’s too proud…. He cheats on me… She takes me for granted…” Surprisingly, most of those reasons were not there when they started. They blindly followed a path that led nowhere!
It’s one of those bizarre experiences for those who have once been caught up in the scenario. Thinking about this menace, I wouldn’t help but sigh!
Let me ask you a question:Do you think there’s really no more love in a relationship when people get tired of it?
If you say yes, you might be wrong!
For you to know, most people get to the point where it’ll appear that nothing new will ever come out of their relationship anymore. And it’s not just that these people don’t have a residual affection for their partners again…
They are just the victims of what I call…. The Mirage Tales in Romantic Relationships.
So, how do you know that your relationship is bound to last? How do you make your relationship lead to Marriage?
The answer is readily available if you’ll read on.
Let’s Consider this Quote:
A vision without a task is but a dream,
A task without a vision is drudgery,
A vision and a task is the hope of the world.
Did that quote up there say something to you?Wait! Go back to the quote and read it again, slowly. Read it twice or three times to let it sink, and we will continue.
My friend, have you once had one of those lovely dreams in which you wake up defeated and would almost fight the one that woke you up?
But no matter how the merriment feelings last in the dreamland, you just have to wake up and be back to your status quo the moment reality dawns on you. True or True?
Today, many relationships are perpetually in the dreamland. And some are not ready to wake up from their little slumbers.See this: You just heard that a new phone came out last weekend and you went straight to a dealer to buy one for yourself. When you got home everyone was intrigued about the functions and even the look of your phone, so the atmosphere left you in an indescribable awe.
The truth is, the phone will undoubtedly be sold at a lower price than the purchase price, even if you’ve not used it at all.
That’s life for you, and that’s how many relationships are – they begin to lose value the moment they are started!
Now let’s go back to the quote.
A vision without a task is but a dream,
A task without a vision is drudgery,
A vision and a task is the hope of the world.
1st phrase: A vision without a task is but a dream.All that you discuss about the future is a vision that needs tasks to materialize. And without a mission, there’s no task to help the mission.
Let me simplify that:
Do You Plan the Future Together, Reasonably?When you start a relationship, you often promise each other heaven and earth – that’s Vision.
But do you know nothing will happen until you begin to do something about the spoken words?
Doing something about it is the mission, and what you are doing per time is a task.
If I say I promise to build a mansion for you in three years and I’m not doing any reasonable thing on a timely basis, the mansion won’t be built forever.
2nd Phrase: a task without a vision is drudgery.It’s stupid to be doing stuff in your relationship and seeing that it’s leading nowhere close to Marriage. Whatever you do together in a relationship (that’s a task), without thinking about the future (vision) will lead you nowhere.
3rd Phrase: a vision and a task is the hope of the worldThe hope that you and your partner will last is hidden in what you do together.
So, if you see that you and your partner are doing some reasonable things together towards being together in the future… There’s a chance they don’t want to lose you.
Do you understand now?
Well, that’s the end of part one.
NOW, PART TWOAre You Proud of Your Role in the Relationship?
Can you remember the story of the blind man in the post about the factors to consider before starting a relationship?
We will go back to it…You’re going on a journey with someone who you think knows the way but unfortunately doesn’t know much. And instead of solely relying on their knowledge, you go ahead to get some GPS navigation system to help.
Then each time the driver wants to go in the wrong direction, you make them know and they get on the right path. How do you think the driver will see you, compared to someone who wouldn’t mind to help?
They will surely love you and will regard you with feelings of respect and reverence.
So… If you’re in a Relationship and won’t do anything to help the relationship better, you’re an old chump! If your partner can’t look at you someday and be glad they met you as they state what they’ve gained since they met you, you’re beautifully stupid! Wait… I am not sorry for those words!
Have you once asked yourself why do you think someone will leave you for another person?It’s simply because they found someone better! And if you can’t make yourself equal to the task, why shouldn’t they think of getting a substitute?
See, knowledge they say is power! The more you know the more you are respected and loved. You can’t just be in a relationship and all you do is to ask for stuff without giving something back to help your partner.
You wouldn’t read books that will help you grow mentally, morally, financially and spiritually; you won’t invest a dime to make yourself better and then you want a partner who would stay forever?
You have no covetable character and habit and you are as crude as you were when you started the relationship. You are so timid that the air can intimidate you.
You’re to be slapped!To say it as it is, your relationship is going nowhere if you are not driving it where you want it to be in the nearest future.
Enough of trial and error relationships. Enough of decadent characters, defeating attitudes and demeaning habits – enough of shenanigans!
Ask Yourself This QuestionIf your partner comes now and says they want to call it quit, who would feel heartbroken the more?
If you feel you’ll be on the loser’s end, then it’s time to work. It’s time to start investing in yourself.
And if you are sure of yourself, your partner will think twice before they just come to tell you they are calling it quit!
Do People Love Your Person?If people around you can’t testify that you’re lovely, caring, respectful, wonderful, adorable, then you can’t have a relationship that is going to lead to a Marriage. That’s simple because people’s say about you is enough to tell your future.
The Unexplainable ReasonsI believe you know by now that some things are beyond reasonable. You undoubtedly know that some relationships end up for reasons not known and you can beat your chest that you’ve done your best!
I understand that and that shouldn’t stop you from getting a better relationship.
- If your relationship will lead to Marriage, you will be the one to drive it along the desired path.
- If you desire a blossoming relationship, you will work it out.
- Feelings alone don’t keep a relationship; there should be set goals you need to achieve together.
- If you and your partner are not planning towards the future in what you call a relationship, then don’t expect a thing called marriage to come out of it.
