Love and Relationships

Green Thumb

Most plants and flowers do best when they’re not fawned over. Give them water and sunlight (maybe some fertilizer) and they will grow and thrive — providing you with visual beauty, pleasant scents, and increased oxygen. Clingy guys should take notes from these plants and flowers.

Breathing Room

Let love bloom

In general, girls don’t like to be constantly checked up on. Positive attention and affection is nice, but you don’t have to be attached at the hip! Also, each flower and plant has its own ‘chart’ that determines how much water and sunlight it needs, etc. What works for one may not work for the other, so instead of coming up with some ‘cookie-cutter’ plan, you have to learn to treat each one as a unique being.

No One Size

Just as you can’t change how a flower or plant will grow or bloom, you also can’t change how a woman is, no matter how hard you might try.

If you’ve chosen to be in a relationship with a particular girl, it’s like you chose a specific plant or flower from the greenhouse because it had qualities that were attractive to you. Don’t just throw it out because you don’t want to put in the effort to help it blossom. And don’t just cast a girl aside just because she may not always think or act the way you think she should.
