It’s not about the big romantic gestures you do but about those little things you do without realizing things which make her feel like you care, and things which she finds adorable.

  1. Asking Her How Is She Doing?

    You may not realize this but you’ve stopped asking her, and that is bound to happen. You talk to her every day, and it is not like you don’t know what’s happening. If there is something wrong, she will tell you, you don’t have to ask her this question formally. At times, she needs to feel like you care. Maybe she was feeling a little low last night when you do ask the next morning “How are you feeling now?”

Trust me, even if she was feeling low, this will uplift her mood.

    You may call her at night when you’re free and have time for her. It is okay to do so, but when you call her in the middle of a busy day just to tell her that you love her, it will make her beam with joy. Even if it is for a minute, it will make her feel important.

  3. When You Get Jealous

    She just came back from the party and starts telling you all about it. She tells you about her friends and then tells you about her guy friends, that little jealousy you have makes her smile. It makes her feel like you value her, and are afraid to lose her. Off course not being extremely jealous but a little jealous.

  4. Share Things with Her

    When we go through problems, we share it with our partners. When you do share your problems with her, she not only tries her best to solve them but feels happy. She feels happy that you trust her enough to share things with her. She feels happy that you consider her as an important part of her life, hence your problems are not a burden for her.

  5. Respect Her Choices

    Be a gentleman, and value her point of view. When you do that, she feels respected and valued. Make her feel like your equal, and she will be happy in true sense.

  6. Send Her Songs

    You’re listening to a song, and it suddenly reminds you of her. Maybe because of the lyrics, or the music but it just reminds you of her. Send her the song, it will make her smile like a fool. She knows that you think about her, and makes her feel secure.

  7. Send Her a Text Telling Her How You Feel

    You don’t have to send a long text with fancy words but simple words telling her how you feel. This makes her feel super special, and even a single line telling her how you feel makes her more special than a 3-page essay. You just need to be true.

  8. Honest Opinion over a Sugar Coated One

    No matter what she says, she loves to hear the truth. This makes her feel that no matter what it is, you will tell her the truth and won’t cheat her because you are not someone who lies. She will always seek your advice because she knows it is genuine.

Some people say that “bargaining comes naturally to Indians” while some simply cannot bargain at all. Some even get scolded for paying a huge chunk to the shopkeeper. Then there are some people who bargain like a PRO and make their shopping companions feel safe. They are called for all shopping trips by the family members and relatives. One of my bargaining expert aunts says that bargaining is an art that shines with time and age. It is something that requires a lot of patience to roam around the market and continuous argument with the shopkeeper. So, if you are ok with these two conditions, then, becoming a PRO at bargaining would be cheesecake for you.

Here are some easy steps that you can follow which will definitely help you become a smart shopper.

Give A “Shocked” Expression Hearing the Price:

You must have watched Ekta Kapoor serials – right? So, play the melodramatic expressions of the leading actors getting surprised and shocked in your head and repeat them in real life. It works really well. Whatever the shopkeeper is quoting – you must be shocked and that ways it will be easier to coax the seller. Bring disbelief in your eyes and sound dramatic – this will be fun!

Be Smart When The Seller Is Cutting Down The Price:

The moment you sense that the seller or shopkeeper is ready to cut down the quoted price – seize the opportunity right away. Now push some more and see the limit how far he/she can cut down the price. It will definitely save you from spending some extra money.

Don’t Be Expressive:

The sellers or shopkeepers are way smarter than you are. They see thousands of people like you every day and thus it will take just a 5-second glance at your eyes or body language to know that you have liked a certain product at the shop. And once they know this fact, they also know that you will pay extra to own that object. So, never be expressive about your liking towards a particular thing you want to buy. Instead, be critical and ask questions about the price.

Walk Away & Make Them Run After You:

This may seem funny but it really works wonders. This trick always gets you what you want at your price. When you start bargaining and the seller is not ready to sell away the product at your price – simply walk away. Don’t go too far from the periphery of that shop and you will find that person coming back to you and asking “how much will you pay?” The seller will also negotiate to say “itne mein kaise hoga? (how to manage in this amount?) But you cannot give up. This movement is an indication that you will get your desired product.

Buy Multiple Items:

Always remember that the more you buy from one shop or seller – the brighter are the chances of getting lucrative discounts. Some shopkeepers won’t give that easily and you have to fight for it. Say the same thing repeatedly that you brought so many things and will recommend this shop to other friends and all the jazz. The shopkeeper cannot miss this chance of publicity after all.

Be Shameless:

Always remember that it is your hard-earned money that you will be spending on buying things and thus you have every right to bargain. So, be shameless in asking for more discounts or asking for cutting down the price a bit more.

Lie About Discounts Given To Friends:

Just tell the shopkeeper that a friend bought the same thing from this shop a week or a month ago at a reasonable price. So, why can he/she increase the price so much? Also, add emotional lines like “I came here because my friend said that this is one of the best shops in town and the owner is one gem of a person”. You will surely get what you want that way.

Always Believe That Everything Is Negotiable:

Last but not least, you have to believe that “everything you see in a market is absolutely negotiable”. Until and unless you mug up this point – you cannot be a PRO at bargaining. Try this even at shops where you see “price not negotiable”. A display board cannot decide what you are willing to pay after all.

The personality types of people can be broadly divided into two parts – introverts and extroverts. Introversion is one of the major personality mannerisms identified in many theories of personality. People who are introverted tend to be inward turning or focused more on internal thoughts, feelings, and moods rather than seeking out external stimulation. Introverts are those shy people who have fewer friends and don’t like talking much to people. Instead, they love talking to the self and think on varied subjects. How is it like dating an introvert? Well, you are really lucky if you happen to date any of these shy and quiet bunch of people. Their silence is often taken as arrogance but there are many perks when you are dating them.

Here are some of the benefits that you can enjoy while dating an introvert.

Mostly They Are Readers & Writers:

Most of the introverts are avid readers. Many of them are great writers too. So, they always have beautiful stories to delight you and some amazing words to sweep you off your feet. Also, because they are quite observers and read a lot means they will come up with the best advice for anything and everything bothering you. They will also surprise you with handwritten notes or sometimes describe the regular day into beautiful phrases which will leave you in awe. In total, they will always make you feel good!

Their Sensitive Mind:

These introverts carry a sensitive mind and thus they will understand your pain and agony like no other. If you trust them and tell them about your problems, then, know one thing for sure – they will stick to you through your thick and thin. They are always supportive and will never leave you disappointed. Introverts are the ones who will derive their happiness in your smile. If you are dating an introvert, then, there will be no situation when you feel alone or low because they are very emotional and sensitive.

Eyes of Observation:

Things are bare both in front of you and your introvert love interest – but he/she will see those things which you cannot see rather observe. That’s because these introverts have a keen eye for observation. Their curious gaze lets them unravel many different aspects of things and people around them. They may even say something unique about you which you have perhaps never noticed about yourself. So, in their company, you will always learn something new about yourself and the world around you. Their unique perception about things in the world is so different that you will be amazed at how they can associate so many thoughts with simple things in life. Isn’t that a treat?

They Never Quit:

See the thing is – what is a piece of cake to the extroverts is a long struggle for introverts. It means that mingling with people, being social, and making good friends is the character of an extrovert. Whereas an introvert is never comfortable in social circles and almost pathetic in making friends. They also pick their friends and are very protective of them. So, if you are dating an introvert, he/she will make all efforts to bond with you. When you are having some issues in your relationship this person will try every way to make this relationship work. They will never leave you easily and thus with an introvert partner you can be sure of commitment and loyalty.

Always Attentive:

When you have gained the confidence of an introvert – you have all the attention of them on you. They will always focus on your presence and listen to you minutely. For your introvert lover, you are one of those very few people who can make them comfortable and thus they treasure you. Therefore, they will direct all their energies towards you. You will always be appreciated for all big and small things you do for them and thus you will never feel left out.

Introverts Are Thoughtful:

The most amazing part of an introvert’s character is that they will think a thousand times before acting or reacting to any situation. Therefore fights with them will be devoid of yelling and will be more like an intense discussion over a particular or varied topic. The conversation that you are enjoying/fighting with them has been rehearsed many times in their head. So, when you are in doubts about where the relationship is heading while having a fight, they are already making changes to save it. Apart from that when it comes to happier moments, like a birthday or anniversary celebration, be ready to experience the most thoughtful gifts!

They Listen Carefully & Patiently:

Introverts are always the best people to-go when someone had a bad day because they allow people to speak their mind calmly. So, don’t worry at all – you can come back from work and tear your heart out in front of your introvert partner. That person will not miss a single word uttered by you and after you are done, he/she will surprise you with the kind of coffee or food or movie you prefer so that you tend to feel better. They are that kind of persons who will also appreciate your achievements rather than judging you on your mistakes.
