So recently, I’ve acquired myself an amazing boyfriend. Excuse me while I gush for a moment, but he really is pretty amazing. He’s basically the dream. He is so kind, intelligent, selfless and thoughtful. He blows me away everyday with how good of a boyfriend he is. Of course, I’m biased, but even my friends think he is awesome boyfriend by the way he treats me when he is around. More than once I’ve heard “wow, hes an awesome boyfriend,” “hes sooooo sweet” and “I wish I had a boyfriend like that.” I cannot help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I don’t think I’ve ever been treated so well by any other human being in my whole life, except by my mom.

Alright, I’m done bragging. Now, this is my first romantic relationship so I’m still figuring things out a little bit. As you can see, I have a pretty great boyfriend, but I’m wondering, am I as great of a girlfriend to him as he is a boyfriend to me? Honestly, I think he is so special and I only want to give him the best and make him feel as appreciated as he is. I dont want him feeling like hes taken for granted. I have a hard time thinking of those little things to do to make him feel special. I just want to offer him the best and serve him in the same way he serves me. Basically, I’m wondering, what can I do to be the best girlfriend that I can be for him? I know one of the keys in a relationship is to constantly be putting the other person before yourself. I know he is doing that, but I want to make sure I’m keeping up on my end of the relationship.

Help me out here ladies.

Also, just for the record, I have gotten some things straight. I’m a pretty independent person, so walking in the relationship, I knew I would need some space and I have maintained my own life pretty well. I try my best to keep my girlfriend time, my alone time, my family time, my educational time and my boyfriend time balanced. Also, I have done as much as possible to make God the center and foundation of our relationship. Our foundation is honesty. I may not be good at everything, but the things I am good at, I have done very well.

EDIT: Okay so I thought you had mentioned something about being pretty independent but then I didn’t see it because I had seen your other post. Okay I knew I wasn’t crazy. Here is a post that immediately came to my mind when I read that:

Okay now onto my original response:
Hey girlie, let me preface with I’ve never actually been in a relationship, I’ve been on two dates with one person way back in high school but that was it. However, I have read up on dating and preparing for my future husband and that has led me to some great articles on PI and other sites.
My main advice to you is that no matter what you do in “trying to be the best girlfriend” to him, do not compromise your true self. Growing as a person in a positive way and the changes that come with that in a relationship are normal and totally fine but compromising your morals is definitely not the kind of concessions you should ever make, no matter how “amazing” your boyfriend is. I’m in no way saying your boyfriend would ever be like that, I’m just trying to give you a general heads up.
My best suggestion to you would be to thumb through the dating tag on PI and see if an article catches your eye. Also I highly recommend checking out Phylicia Masonheimer’s blog “Phylicia Delta” she writes for PI sometimes but has her own blog and has some amazing blog posts about dating.

Okay so first and foremost, he sounds like a great guy. From what I read he seems to really like you. Don’t ever feel like you’re not good enough for him though. He obviously chose you because he sees something great in you. I think it is sweet when the guy initiates a lot of the stuff and I completely understand that you want to do nice things for him like he does for you.

Now of course a relationship should never be based on things like gifts and presents, but I think occasionally you can surprise him with cute things like notes saying how much you appreciate him and really show him you care.

When you’re together, I’m sure that is enough to a make him realize how good of a gf you are. 🙂
Word of Advice: NEVER flirt with other guys to make your bf come running to you. I’ve seen so many girls try to play mind games with their boyfriends and that is probably the most unhealthiest thing in a relationship and their relationships do not last very long.

Anyways, being independent is a great thing. I love that about people. Sometimes you just need to work alone, need to be alone, gather your thoughts, ect;.. For some people that causes trouble in a relationship bc the bf or gf can’t accept that the other person wishes to be alone. In that case, you need find someone else. But if a person truly likes you, they will respect that and love that fact about you.

Hope some of this helped!
