If this is you it is best to try to balance your romantic nature with a practical one. Continues those spontaneous walks in the park or adventurous vacations, but plan the day to day dates as well to help keep the love and interest alive.
For those who like a lot of structure in their lives and who prefer to plan ahead, you might be a “planner” type of boyfriend. You are all about making lists and following a certain schedule or living up to a certain level of caliber… and your partner needs to be the same way.

Do you get fixated on the person or the relationship? Worrying about whether or not you’re spending enough time together or if you’re showing them how much you love them? If so this type of boyfriend is the obsessive type. While this type of boyfriend can provide a continuous level of intimacy and affection, they can oftentimes smother the partner and make them leave. Finding a balance of being invested in the person. And your relationship and giving them space can help provide a healthy area for both of you to flourish together.
For men who are continuously giving more than they get in the relationship, you are a giver. You feel the need to provide love and support in countless ways from doing more than your fair share of the housework to giving in and doing things together that your girlfriend wants to do. While being a giver is a good thing as everyone deserves love and attention, it is important to remember that you deserve the same treatment as well. Place boundaries on how much of yourself you are willing to give so that you aren’t constantly feelings as if you are holding the relationship together without the support of your partner.
