HINT #1 - Even after a relationship begins, you can continue to play hard to get. Without ignoring her, keep a level of independence. Don't make your life revolve around her entirely. Don't smother her. Be it your job or your sport - something that shows her that you can live without her. If you have a life outside her sphere of influence, it will make her slightly insecure, and therefore, want to hold on to you even more.

HINT #2 - Never do what she expects you to do. Someone who does exactly what is expected on cue is boring. By being unpredictable you constantly keep her on her toes, and more importantly, you keep her interested.

HINT #3 - In a relationship you've got to maintain a level of romance. Once we overheard two friends’ wives talking. One said, "Do you know what I would like to do? I would really like to go out on a date." In other words, here was a woman who was married and bored. She wanted her husband to ask her out on a date. She wanted flowers, to be asked out, the door held open, and kissed on the neck over dinner. You've got to keep romance in the relationship. You've got to surprise her with little gifts, with flowers, with love notes on the pillow, and candlelight dinners. You've got to make her feel like she is a woman.
