Effectively initiating romance, doing things differently and communicating your desires all requires self-assurance. Here is how...
Confidently asking for what you want begins with your clarity. If you are unsure about what you like, it makes it harder to ask for what you want and for your partner to meet your desires.
If you ignore your partner’s good deeds he may stop fulfilling your desires. When your significant other gives you what you like, acknowledge it to encourage him to give you more of what you like. Showing gratitude will also strengthen your self-assurance.
Make sure you understand your lover’s desires and reciprocate. When you give generously and without resentment or expectation, he will be more willing to meet your needs in return. Those that give, gain satisfaction and more.
Ditch the rut
Get out of a rut and build your esteem by doing different things and spicing things up. Get inspiration from movies, books, music, fashion, scents, your lover’s comments and reactions, and your imagination. Arrange an unexpected surprise that you will both enjoy.
Be a go getter
Instead of waiting for your significant other to initiate romance, be spontaneous. Surprise him by occasionally taking the lead and turning up the heat. A cheeky kiss, subtle touch, intimate hug, flirty look or seductive smile will send the right signals.
The right mindset
Put yourself in a positive frame of mind by thinking about a time in the past when you felt incredible within yourself (eg. in your career, on holidays, etc). Then you will feel the confidence you felt at the time, and be in the right mindset to also ask your partner for what you want.
