Everyone has that one thing they wish their partner would do for them. Maybe it’s as simple as taking out the trash or doing the dishes. Maybe it’s something bigger, like taking care of the kids for an entire day so you can have a break. Whatever it is, we all have our little (or not so little) requests. So how do you get your partner to actually do what you want? Check out these five surefire ways to get your partner to do anything for you.
1. Find out what they want and offer to trade favours.
We all have things we want, so why not ask your partner what they want? Chances are, there’s something you can do for them that they’ll be more than happy to return the favour for. It’s a win-win!
2. Use reverse psychology.
If you’ve ever had a parent use reverse psychology on you, then you know just how effective it can be. When you tell your partner not to do something, they’re likely to do it just to spite you. So go ahead and give it a try!
3. Make them feel guilty.
Guilt is a powerful emotion, so why not use it to your advantage? If your partner knows that you’re unhappy with them because they’re not doing what you want, chances are they’ll start trying to make up for it in other ways. And before long, they’ll be doing what you wanted all along!
4. Bribe them with their favourite food or drink.
Everyone has a weakness, so why not use yours to your advantage? If your partner knows that they can get their favourite food or drink by doing what you want, they’ll be more likely to do it without complaint. Just be sure not to overdo it or they might start expecting bribes all the time!
5. Appeal to their ego.
If your partner is the type of person who likes to feel needed and important, then this method is definitely for you. By making them feel like they’re the only ones who can do what you need to be done, chances are they’ll rise to the occasion and get it done without hesitation. Just be careful not to make them feel like they’re always needed or else they might start taking advantage of the situation!
There you have it! Five surefire ways to get your partner to do anything for you. So go ahead and give one (or all) of them a try and see just how well they work for getting your partner to finally do what you’ve been wanting them to do all along!
