Promises are something that many people make but few people keep. And more often than not, its a new way of lying. Mainly used by guys who want girls to get with them, so they make promises. Guys, please don’t ever promise your girlfriend anything you cannot fulfill. There’s nothing worse than you promising her something and then never coming through with it. When you tell your girlfriend you’ll do something, she assumes you mean it. And then if you add the promise after that statement she will assume it’s a commitment. Do yourself the favor of not disappointing her and only make promises you can keep. It’s simple gentleman, their not looking for a thousand promises, or for you to be mister perfect, they want trust, they want your word.
They want to know that you mean what you say, if you continuously continue to break promises, how can she know what your worth, she needs to see commitment. Promises mean a lot to people because they suggest appreciation, value and empathy and they carry some pleasure in fulfillment. The effect of broken promises is resentment, missed opportunities and a lack of trust in future promises. Make sure your promises are realistic, and you are willing to follow through before making them. If you are not able to do so, then don’t promise her anything or it will cause her more hurt then hopes. And no one should ever want to see their girlfriend hurt. Love her, be honest with her, and only make promises you can keep. <3
