    Your New Work Routine

    Your sudden love for getting into shape that you have been admiring for long might irritate him. According to a study conducted by North Carolina State University sometimes partner’s weight loss can negatively change relationship dynamics. It could be more irritating for those partners who don’t focus much on shaping up themselves. So, if you have been hitting the gym hard to achieve some serious results, make sure you don’t push him to join you. Instead, you can go for a low key active hangout like a hike with him. Don’t excuse him with your workout regime when he wants you to try the five-course menu at a new restaurant. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Enjoying Lunch with Cube Mate

    Your guy knows about all your friends and every one you meet. He knows there is nothing between you and the male co-worker you are teaming up for a new project. But he may still not like the idea of you having frequent lunch time meetings with him. A study from Cornell suggests that having a meal with a member of the opposite sex can create more jealousy from a partner than a coffee or drink date. You can invite your guy over lunch so that it doesn't bother him much. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Your Addiction for Social Media

    According to a study from the University of Missouri, Colombia, checking facebook feed frequently can create jealousy in your partner. But, why does it affect him? Well, the more time you spend on Facebook, the more it will make him think that something is happening there, causing him to monitor your page, such as by checking the comments on your pictures, the posts on your wall, etc. So, if you think this could be bothering him, it is time you take a break from social media.

    Having a Male Best Friend

    It does not matter if it’s been just six months being together or two years, you having a male best friend might be the last thing he will approve of.  No matter how well he knows you or your best friend, it makes him jealous when you two laugh at each other's jokes or share personal matters/issues with each other.  He may not say it or show it because he assumes you might feel bad but he does not like you having a male best friend especially if the guy is very close to you.
