I really wanna have my boyfriend for a long time so I wanna be a better girlfriend. Problem is I'm not very good at it. He says I'm a good girlfriend but I don't feel like one. I feel like I complain too much and am too clingy and negative. So any advice? Or what generally makes a good girlfriend?

I found that realizing that not everything revolved around me was a huge step in being someone others want to be with.
I don't mean I was ever selfish, but i was quick to assume any problem he had was because of ME. Too tired for sex? Gah, he does not want me anymore! He wants a quiet night at home alone? Oh no, he is tired of me! He wants a boy's night out? He doesn't want to hang with me, and he will be picking up girls left and right!!! Being the "center of the universe " was exhausting and emotionally devastating.
I had to remove the insecurity from my own relationships. Once I decided to "let it go and just let it BE" I became happier and more self confident. By default, I became sexier and someone a guy wanted to be with.
Taking control of your own feelings is a huge start to being a good girlfriend.2
