Every guy loves his man cave. However, there will come a time when we want to settle down and let someone else into our lives. It simply isn’t fair to keep everything the same in our homes. We need to make changes that will ensure our new friend feels comfortable and content. There is every possibility that the massage chair will have to go. Also, keeping that Star Wars themed bedroom is not going to excite her one bit. It’s all about compromise. You can still keep your favorite memorabilia somewhere safe. Now might just be the last time you can have it on display without receiving negative comments.
At the end of the day, we’ve all got to start growing up sometime. The ideas mentioned below are just some of the ways in which you can show her you care.
Remove those movie posters from your bedroom
You might like looking at Tony Montana when you lie in bed, but your new friend probably doesn’t. You are not a teenager any longer. Take all those movie posters down and replace them with some stylish artwork. You could still put your stamp on the place by selecting Banksy prints or something similar. Just don’t choose anything too geeky or offensive. She is sure to prefer artwork that is less aimed at a male audience.
Turn your memorabilia room into an office
You’ve spent so much cash building your collection. So, removing it from your display is probably going to hurt. However, you need to make better use of space in your memorabilia room. That space could be used as a walk-in wardrobe or office. All couples will need a place to work in their home, and so the latter option is probably best. Just invest in a decent desk, and pick a lamp up from your local home store. Your new friend is going to be very impressed when she sees the amount of effort you’ve made. You might even get some extra attention that evening!
Plant some trees and flowers in the garden
Most guys don’t have a clue when it comes to flowers and trees. Here’s a bit of advice that should help you out. The people working at your local garden center will know which flowers look good at this time of year. So, all you have to do is ask. Your lady friends will be shocked when she sees you picked the right species. In fact, she might even start to think you’re a bit of a gardening expert. There is no need to tell her the truth! When it comes to trees, you can’t go wrong with a Crepe Myrtle. They flower every year, and they look fantastic. There is no need to grow them from scratch because lots of sellers stock mature alternatives.
So long as you implement each of those three ideas, everything should be fine. Your new friend will feel like you are making lots of extra effort. She will also feel inclined to do the same. So, who knows? You might come home from work to find your memorabilia room laid back out. However, we all know that’s not very likely.
