Are you dating a guy that you see a future with, but you aren't sure if he feels the same way? Are you looking to figure out how you can get a man to open up to you and let you in? Well if the answer is yes, then this article is for you.
Dating is a pain in the ass, but at the end of the day, we all want love. Love is something that realistically can't be forced, but there are still certain things a girl can do to make her man start feeling the emotions you so badly want him to feel. We at TheRichest thought it would be a great idea to point out the 15 things that men tend to fall for. This list has nothing to do with physical appearance. After all, physical attraction is something that can't be explained through an article, it is something that can only be felt (or seen). Relationships and love have little to do with physical features because love is something that develops over time and represents a much deeper connection.
However, we are aware that a lot of women do not know certain little things they can do to help give him that push to fall in love with them. That is where we come in, the following is a list of 15 simple things you can do to get him to fall in love with you. This is not some magic spell that will make any man immediately fall for any girl, but it will definitely help some of you get to the next step.

15 Learn About Sports
It is no secret that men love their sports. From basketball to golf, many men are almost obsessed with sports. Women are often seen complaining about men and their addiction to sports, however that is the wrong approach to go with. Instead of hating on the sport, how about you learn about it and maybe you'll even grow to appreciate it in your own way. This does not mean that we women need to share the obsession, but it is nice for us to learn about the games our men are so passionate about. Trust us, any man is impressed when a woman knows about sports, especially a sport he loves. Educate yourself on not only the game, but the players also (or his fantasy team!) to really help win him over. Another way you can impress him with your sports knowledge is getting dressed up in his favorite jersey. Especially if you are wearing the jersey with nothing else on - trust us, there will certainly be a touchdown.
14 Be Open To New Things
One of the most incredible things about the world we live in is the abundance of opportunities that we get to experience. Although sometimes trying something new can be scary, and there is a possibility you won't enjoy it, the fact that you are willing to go outside of your comfort zone is a big turn on to men. A lot of people are afraid of trying new things, but what they also miss out on are countless experiences. We at TheRichest believe that this is one of the biggest reasons why people are still single. If someone is too afraid to try a new food or a new activity, how are they ever going to be able to try on a new relationship? Dating is all about meeting new people and sharing new experiences together. Which is why when you are set in your ways and unwilling to open your interests (to include, say, sports), it is viewed as a big time turn off for men.
Okay, so I know we are not in the year 1940, but sometimes being old fashioned is not such a bad thing. There is a misconception that a man who wants a woman to clean is “misogynist.” This is something that is so ridiculous, you can't help but laugh. Woman are natural caretakers and as weird as this may sound, a lot of men like to be taken care of. Women who clean often get put in the “wifey” category, which is definitely something you are looking for if you want the guy to fall in love with you. Men, like women, are searching for that special person, and a lot of guys in this generation are looking for women with similar values to their mothers. This typically, at the very least, means they want a girl that can keep a clean house. Not to mention that a lot of guys will view your cleaning as a major act of love, especially if they have a physical job in which they are constantly on their feet or doing hard labor.
12 Don't Be On Your Phone
This is a mistake many, many women have made in the past. We live in a generation that is literally obsessed with our mobile devices. A lot of the time, we don't even realize how much we use our phones until someone says something. Ladies, if you are spending time with a man and want him to fall for you, one of the worst things you can do is spend an excessive amount of time on your phone. Not only are you not giving him the chance to get to know you, you are pretty much saying to him that you are bored and not interested in hearing what he has to say. On the rare chance that whatever is going on is an emergency, then that is one thing that may be more understandable. However, if on a regular basis you are sitting down and checking social media or taking selfie Snapchats with a dog filter during a date, you can expect a lot of lonely evenings.
11 Get Along With His Friends
There comes a time in every relationship before things become official when you need to meet his friends. For women, this is something that tends to cause a lot of anxiety. You never know who your man is friends with and sometimes we psych ourselves out. There is no doubting that meeting his friends is a big deal and getting along with them is an even bigger deal. Friends will go a long way into understanding if you and your partner will be compatible for the long term. You know the expression “show me who your friends are and I'll show you who you are?" Well, you can't truly understand a person until you have seen them in their comfort zone with people they are comfortable around. Be careful that your sweet and loving boyfriend when you're alone doesn't become a jerk when he's out with his bros. For a man, being able to get along with his “boys” is a huge bonus and will make him fall in love with you even faster than he already is, you just need to hope they aren't jerks.
10 Be Honest
Being honest is one of the most important things in any relationship, whether it is friendship or romance. When a new relationship begins, a lot of the time, we as humans feel the need to impress the other person. We always think that we are never good enough, so a lot of the time when a woman meets a man she tends to exaggerate just a little. Ladies, listen up, if you want to be with a man and think the relationship has the potential to last a significant amount of time, then you should be honest from the very start. No matter how good of a liar you are, your man is going to find out you lied about being a great soccer player when you go to kick the ball and totally wipe out! To you, it may not be a big deal, but to them, that may be what made them fall for you in the first place. The point is that you should be 100% honest in any relationship....okay, maybe 99% honesty is enough; we don't want to overplay the honesty card!
9 Be Put Together
Nails done, toes done, eyebrows done, these are all qualities women need to focus on. Women do not realize this, but men always notice if a woman has her nails done. In a lot of ways, a man believes that doing things like this is a form of “taking care” of yourself, which in return means you are able to take care of him. A lot of women think that in order to look good they need to have a full face of makeup and a tight dress on. However, in reality, men are more attracted to someone who can also look gorgeous without applying 10 pounds of makeup. Now ladies, that does not mean you should look like a mess and think it's “natural.” But when a girl is able to take care of everything around her, including her appearance, it is a super attractive quality to any man. Look good for him, remind him why he began dating you, and soon he will be saying “I love you.”
8 Encourage Him
This is one of the things that will almost guarantee him to fall in love with you. Being supportive and encouraging a man is one of the things that he looks for the most in a wife. Men often times act like they do not need any sense of security from anyone. However, once they receive the encouragement of a loving woman, it is hard to let it go. On the outside, men do not seem as “needy” as us women, however, the reality is they are even needier. Our advice to any girl looking to get him to fall head over heels for you is to always be encouraging. Tell him you believe in him and remember that doing little things like sending him texts the day of a big meeting telling him he's going to be awesome can go a long way. Essentially just let him know that no matter what, you are his number one fan.
7 Be Cool
There is nothing more unattractive than a girl who is not cool. Let's specify that, we aren't talking about being popular or driving the latest car cool, we are talking about being cool when it comes to letting your man do things. Stereotypically speaking, men always think women are uptight when it comes to going out with the boys or going to a club. Ladies, one piece of advice; if your man is going to cheat on you, he will, whether he goes to the club or not. The more paranoid you are the less attractive you become to a man. Men love confident women and if you want him to fall in love with you, you need to trust him. This does not mean to shut up and just let him do what he wants, but us women need to stop trying to tell men what to do because all that does is push them away from us.
6 Be Charming
A little charm goes a long way. Women nowadays have such a wall up that a lot of the time we come off at bitches. Although having a little sass is never a bad thing, we are so afraid to get hurt that we don't let ourselves be that charming woman that men are known to fall in love with. A lot of women believe that men only see the physical appearance, but there is so much more. We will be honest, a lot of men do notice physical appearance, but the good guys will understand where the real value is found. Personality is a huge factor in a man falling in love with you, and in our experience, the more charming you are the more likely you are to find your way into his heart. It is good to be tough, but remember to show your sweet side and it may be more beneficial than you think.
5 Be Funny
Why is it that women are so afraid to be silly in front of a man? Is it our fear that he will think we are weird? Or are we simply so afraid of being 100% ourselves that we try to be perfect? Whatever it is, it is something that needs to stop. One of the sexiest qualities a girl can have is a sense of humor. If you can make him laugh, day in and day out, he is going to want to keep you around. A lot of the time, once a woman lets her guard down and shows her silly side, the man feels comfortable enough to do so also. This is when a deeper connection has the possibility of being made because both parties are being vulnerable around one another. Men are drawn to happy women and women who don't take everything so seriously. Life is what you make of it, and those ladies who find the humor in life are usually the ones that find they also don't spend many lonely nights.
4 Let Him In
You know what ladies, men have feelings too. I know, it is very hard to believe, but it is true. Men are afraid of rejection just as much as women are. We women always want the man to “prove himself” to us before letting him in, but we don't do the same to them. Men get a bad reputation when it comes to emotions because, let's face it, there are a lot of ****boys out there. However, there are also a lot of good guys that we block out because we think they are like the previous guy who broke your heart. Falling in love is about two people allowing each other to be there for one another. Love is not about peeling off countless layers until you decide someone is worthy of your heart. If you do not let him in, chances are he won't let you in and you will never develop that deeper connection. As scary as this thought may be, letting your guard down is a good thing. Yes, there is a chance you get hurt, but there is also a chance you fall even deeper in love.
Did anyone else's mother ever tell them that the quickest way to a guy's heart is through his stomach? Well, as we all know, mothers are usually right, and they are definitely right about this. Most men love to eat, but don't love cooking. This is one of the oldest tricks in the book and it is also one of the most effective. Men like to know that they are being taken care of and cooking for them is a great way of showing them that you are up for the challenge. Find out what his favorite meal is and make it for him. This is a sweet gesture that is sure to go a long way with your man. Cooking for a man is something that not only will make him keep you around, but it will make him fall head over heels in love with you. This is a sign that you are “wife” material and any guy looking to get serious is going to want just that.
2 Listen To Him
For some reason, women always say that men do not listen to them. However, in our experience, we have discovered that it is a two-way street. A lot of women are self-absorbed with their own issues that they do not focus on the man. Men give off a strong energy and a lot of the time women do not think that they need someone to talk to. Be that girl, listen to him, give him advice, because building a friendship with a man and gaining his trust is one of the most important factors in having him fall in love with you. A man wants to know that he is part of a team. What this means is that when he needs support, he knows his girl is going to be there to give it to him. You aren't going to be able to help if you haven't listened enough to know what the problem is.
1 Be Yourself
If you take away anything from this article, it should be this. Changing yourself for a man is one of the worst things you can do. Every woman needs to understand that there is only one you out there, so why try and be something else? If a man does not want to be with you then you shouldn't change yourself for him. Instead, you should wipe away those tears and move on to the next guy because you better believe that there is someone out there that is going to love you for you. Despite your flaws, your insecurities, your bad hair days, you are going to find someone that accepts you on your toughest of days. Everything else that we stated was advice, but being yourself is a life choice that everyone needs to make. Men are the most attracted to girls who are true to themselves and if he does not love certain things about you and tries to change them, all that means is he is not the guy for you.
