Guys generally behave the same way. Sure, each one of us has our quirks, but one way or another, boys will be boys. And boys being boys, they're likely to commit a similar set of relationship mistakes that could eventually trigger a tearful, balikan-mo-na-ako-magbabago-na-ako-please kind of breakup.  Do not let it reach that point.

To help you out, we've listed these mistakes below so that you may avoid them. Better yet, read up and do something to improve—if not to outright correct—your ways.

1)   LETTING THE EYES WANDER TOO MUCH

We know. It's incredibly hard to not look at that sexy girl who's passing by. But control yourself. Your girlfriend might be the most secure girl in the world, but that's the kind of thing that still hurts them. A chunk of a girl's pride is anchored on looks, so when you're staring, gazing, and gawking at someone else, it gives them pause: "Is she that much prettier than me that he just can't stop looking?"

Glance bro, don't gawk.

2)   PRETENDING TO BE SOME UNAFFECTIONATE BADASS WHEN YOU’RE AROUND FRIENDS

Bro, it doesn't lessen your pagkalalaki to show her how much you need her in your life. If that's what you feel, show the world. Don't pretend like you're this cold, unfeeling boss in the relationship for the sake of looking cool in front of your barkada. Being unable to show affection just because the friends are there might mean that you're not quite mature as you think.

3)   BEING TOO AVAILABLE TO YOUR FRIENDS ALWAYS AND ALL THE TIME

You need your me-time with friends. If she's mature enough, she will and she should understand that. But don't abuse it. There are days when she wants you to be there completely—as in body and soul, heart and mind. When that time comes, be man enough to say no to the friends. Just put your foot down, and tell everyone else that "No, my girlfriend needs me now, so y'all have to go on without me tonight."

4)   CONSTANTLY RELYING ON A COMMON FRIEND TO FIX ISSUES

What are you? A product that needs its own P.R. department to address issues? Come on man, man up. It's alright to ask for advice from a common friend, but if he or she is doing all the fixing, eh bakit kaya hindi nalang sila ang naging mag-boyfriend?  The mature guy can reach out with complete sincerity to his girlfriend without excessive assistance from friends.

5)   MAKING YOUR GIRL JEALOUS PURPOSELY

Making your GF jealous might sound like a delicious idea to know whether or not she truly loves you. It's also quite the immature move, and shows that you aren't able to take her word when she tells you that she loves you. Purposel inspiring jealousy in her sounds like a way to stroke your ego more than anything else.

6)   YOU'RE ALWAYS BUSY WITH YOUR PHONE

That phone. It's a wonderful device, but also the most evil of gadgets if you aren't able to control your fixation on it. If it's an emergency call, take it. But if you just want to collect the elixir in your COC base or see what your acquaintance is doing on IG, we have an advice: Put it back. When you're with her, spend quality time with her. Give your full attention and have a real conversation.

7)   SECRETLY CHECKING YOUR GIRLFRIEND'S PHONE

Dude, what are you, 15? Maturity means trusting your girlfriend's words, trusting she reveals all that is necessary, and having the courage to love even when you feel vulnerable.

8)   ROUTINELY BRINGING UP PAST RELATIONSHIPS

Is there a healthy way to talk about exes? If there is, we haven't found it. If you still have something to say about a past relationship, are you sure you've really moved on? And if you aren't sure if you have moved on, how can you build a new relationship with a new person completely?
