Lasting relationships are made up of several important things. One of the most important is adequate emotional support. When trying to develop a strong and lasting relationship with your significant other, your emotional support makes all the difference.
From a woman’s perspective, emotional support can be more important than all of the other little things you may have been focusing on. Don’t worry about the right thing to say or the right questions to ask, if you can offer the appropriate emotional support then you’re in.
Many studies have shown that women care most about their man’s effort to be with them and support them. They care most about the way their man responds. Does he appear to care? Is he trying to understand the situation? Is he being empathetic? If he is not, then it doesn’t matter if he understands what is actually going on. All a woman wants from you is effort. That’s what emotional support is. Showing up for someone and making the effort to give them what they need as well as understand what they are going through.
Instead of worrying about the perfect gift, the perfect kiss, the perfect conversation…focus on providing the perfect emotional support. If you find yourself looking for a lasting relationship, then providing great emotional support is your best bet.
