His flaws might tick you off sometimes but let him change himself on his own. If he values you, he will try to make things work with you. Tell him what you like and how his ways affect you but do not imply that he has to change himself for you. Let him do it deliberately without you nagging or badgering him.

4. Be straightforward and honest.
Men are not mind readers so don't keep him guessing. Be honest about how you feel and what you want to happen so he could do something to make things better. If you feel bad, say so and explain why. Women have always had this tendency to say one thing but act opposite to what they are saying. When women don't get what they want, they give men the cold shoulder and just expect them to get the message. Men don't exactly dig this.

5. Value the people who matter to him.
Make efforts to get close to his family. Meet his friends and get to know them. What guys want a girlfriend is for her to get along well with his family and friends. What his family says about you matters to him. So make a good impression and make this impression last.
