10 Reasons Why Simple Boyfriends Are the Best

10 Reasons Why Simple Boyfriends Are the Best

Somewhere in between the lines, we have this sort of crush or attraction to someone who is handsome, popular and sophisticated. We believe such a guy would meet our standards and expectations, and hopefully offer us an amazing relationship.

But the best things in life are not always the complicated things. Sometimes, simplicity is better. Adoration, charm, sensitivity—these are elements you will find in a simple boyfriend. Even if he is opposite to all that you expect in a man, he will always provide you with some of the simple and most amazing things you will ever need.

1. He may not be rich, but he’s also not expensive.

He is concerned with the simple things in life. He isn’t considered with sophistication and luxury, but rather, he gets lots of enjoyment from simpler activities. Meaningful moments are defined by days when the two of you play chess, board games or scrabble. He won’t buy you the most expensive gifts, but he does buy you sensitive, meaningful ones.

2. He is super laid back, which means he can deal with his emotions.

He is not the sort of person who gets mad at every slight move you make. He knows you will make mistakes. And even when you scream at him to leave you alone for good, he won’t scream or find a way to pay you back tit-for-tat.

3. He does ridiculous things, but he knows how to make you laugh.

You both share laughs at the ridiculous things he does. Sometimes he surprises you and catches you off guard. He wants to see and make you laugh. And he would do anything to make this happen because he is concerned about your happiness.

4. He may not know lots of facts, but he understands what you need.

He knows that you need attention and love rather than being bullied. He cares about you, and a simple hug from him gets you through difficult moments.

5. He isn’t very needy, which means he isn’t selfish.

He is not closely guarding you and he doesn’t want you to himself, alone. He knows you also have to be with your family and loved ones. Special moments can also be with others, not just him, and this he knows.

6. He doesn’t talk a lot, but he means what he says.

He keeps to his word. Remember that day you needed someone to help you babysit your siblings or to help you clean the house, and he said he would come to help? He followed through without question. He keeps to his word. He is a person of character rather than cheap talk.

7. He isn’t necessarily spontaneous, but he is someone you can count on.

He is dependable. If you are in trouble or you have a secret to keep, he is someone who knows how to handle it. He cares about you and because of this, he will do anything to make sure you are always safe.

8. He like to live slowly, but this also means he is really patient.

He will listen to you. He gives you alone time if you need it. He is calm and knows that eventually, things will work out for the best. He doesn’t have to haul demands at you or put you under any undue pressure. He is patient.

9. His gestures are simple, but they show that he respects you.

He cares about how you feel. He treats you like a queen. And he loses respect for those who treat you poorly. He is a gentleman. His respect is apparent through simple things, like opening the door for you, picking up those things you drop, or standing up for you.

10. He says what he thinks, but this means he’s honest with you.

He is truthful. He doesn’t have to lie to you. It is not about getting things his way; he wants to be straight with you from the beginning. Having a simple boyfriend means absolute clarity from the beginning and he will never jeopardize or taint your relationship with lies.

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
