How to love your boyfriend unconditionally: 6 techniques to follow

Loving unconditionally means forgiving your partner when he makes a mistake, being there for him when the chips are down, and creating a safe space for him to share his feelings and opinions without being judged. It's a complete form of love and a beautiful gift. That said, unconditional love isn't a free pass for bad behavior; you can love unconditionally and still have expectations and boundaries in a relationship. If you're ready learn to more about showing your man unconditional love, read this article.

Accept his imperfections and quirks. Expecting perfection from your partner just isn’t realistic. Your SO probably has at least a few annoying or weird habits we all do and that’s okay! The key is not letting those minor annoyances affect your feelings or how you treat him. Don't try to change him or give him a hard time about the little things. At the end of the day, those things really don’t matter.For example, his habit of leaving the toilet seat up was cute as at first. Now it drives you up the wall! Is it worth getting angry about, though? Probably not. Unconditional love means loving that person no matter what they do and say. Sometimes, that means you have to let go of things and choose love, instead.


Give him the benefit of the doubt. If he makes a mistake, trust that he didn’t do it intentionally to hurt you. Everyone makes mistakes sometime it’s inevitable that your partner will eventually mess up in some way. If he’s never done anything to break your trust in the past, try to give him the benefit of the doubt when he makes a mistake. Be confident that he has your back and don’t question his intentions unless he gives you a reason to. Giving him the benefit of the doubt does not mean blindly trusting him no matter what. If you catch him in a lie or find out that he’s betrayed you, you have reasonable grounds to doubt him.


Resolve conflict respectfully and fairly. Conflict is inevitable and the key to overcoming it is compromise. Meet each other in the middle to solve any problems that arise in your relationship. Also, remember that give and take is important: it shouldn’t be you always sacrificing your wants/needs for the sake of his. Try to resolve problems as quickly as possible; don’t let them fester.[5] Here are a few other tips for dealing with conflict in a healthy way: Let go of the need to be right or win every argument Focus on the issue at hand and avoid bringing up the past. Use “I” statements to explain how you feel so he doesn’t feel judged or attacked. Take a break if an argument gets heated. Try to look at each conflict as a learning experience

Be willing to forgive and move on. Make an effort to leave past conflicts behind you. It's understandable to be upset after a big fight, even if you've talked it through and made up. Conflict isn't fully resolved until you're able to offer your partner real forgiveness, though. Do your best to let arguments and disagreements go. Try to avoid holding grudges and bringing up past issues. Loving your significant other unconditionally doesn't mean you have to immediately forgive him if he violated your trust or hurt your feelings. Forgiveness can take time and that's okay.


Give him space to pursue his interests and goals. Support his hobbies and friendships outside of your relationship. You don't need to do everything together to have a healthy relationship. In fact, it’s actually much healthier if you both maintain a few separate interests and have lives outside of each other. Give your partner freedom to pursue his passions, hobbies, and friendships. Support his dreams and encourage his outside interests. For example, if he travels to sports car conventions with his buddies a lot, you may not see the appeal of this and feel a bit jealous. Instead of thinking his friends are taking him away from you, remind yourself that you want your man to have a fun and fulfilling life; his friends are helping him do that. And if you're not interested in cars, they're actually doing you a favor!


Be open to change so you can grow together. Change is inevitable and embracing it together makes you stronger. It's easy to feel uncomfortable when things change in life and in your relationship, but change is natural. All things change over time and change creates growth. In times of change, try to work on being more flexible. Instead of letting change drive a wedge between you, embrace it together so you can grow alongside each other. For example, if your partner gets a new job that requires him to travel one weekend a month, you might be worried that you'll grow apart or he'll meet someone else. However, this new job comes with a big raise and he's extremely excited about it. Instead of being sullen, plan something fun to celebrate his new position and tell him how proud you are of him.
