You never want to make the mistake of taking a great guy for granted in relationships. And that’s a trap that a lot of women tend to fall into once they get really comfortable with their men. Great guys just have a way of making relationships so easy and comfortable; they are so good at making everything run so smoothly to the point that it might actually become boring. Stability and overconfidence can sometimes be bad for a relationship in this sense. You might grow to think that you don’t have to work as had on your relationship because your partner is doing it all for you. And that’s always the wrong mindset to have.
When you know you have a great partner, you have to make sure that you are always showing him the appreciation that he needs from you. You need to make sure that he knows that you aren’t taking him for granted; that his efforts aren’t going unnoticed. You always need to give him validation and motivation. Otherwise, he will grow tired and weary of treating you the way that you should be treated.
