Have you ever become frustrated with someone you're dating because they don't say what they mean or what they want? Your partner may think this behavior is 'cute' or 'mysterious,' but dropping hints or beating around the bush causes more problems than it does fascination. Being honest with your girlfriend or boyfriend shows that you respect them and their feelings; hints and tricks and tips are ultimately hurtful and can damage the relationship long-term. Be honest with your mate, and you are more likely to keep them around longer.
