Here’s how to keep him invested in your relationship.
Falling in love is the easy part, the hard part is learning how to keep what you have going once you’ve made a commitment to each other. Keeping your man on his toes is an important part of a thriving relationship.
You know that comfortable routine that couples get into when you’ve stopped trying to impress each other? Yeah, that can turn sour fast if you stop trying completely.

When you first meet someone that you want to get to know better, you tend to work extra hard to impress him or her. That usually means dressing to the nines, making sure your Instagram shows just how much fun your life is, and basically showing him what a catch you are.
He’s doing the same during this time, too, by trying to woo you and show you what a catch he is. Once you play this cat-and-mouse game for a while, you can finally tell each other how you feel and start dating.
But even after the chase, during this honeymoon phase where everything is amazing, you’re still impressed by each other. It’s only after the honeymoon phase ends and you get into the comfortable routine of being around each other all the time that the spark can start to fade in your relationship.
I’m not saying this will absolutely happen, but this would definitely be the time for it to happen at all. No one wants to be in a boring relationship with no spark, right? Of course, not! So, it’s important for both of you to stay committed to the relationship and continue to try for the other person.
Keeping him on his toes usually requires you to be on your toes, too. You both need to be alert and ready for anything in the relationship, otherwise, you’ll end up resenting each other.
The worst heartbreaks are when couples say that their relationship just sort of fizzled out because both people stopped trying. But it definitely doesn’t have to be that way. Just like if one of you isn’t as alert and committed anymore, it doesn’t mean that the relationship is doomed to fail.
