# Divide and conquer. Who knew that simply divvying up chores could help your relationship? Taking part in shared responsibilities reminds her that you're committed—and it gets things around the house done a heck of a lot faster which will make her even happier.

# Mix it up. Of course you love your one-on-one time with her, but including friends and family in your activities can actually help you out as a couple. It shows your girlfriend that you are interested in the people she cares about and gives her the opportunity to get to know your crew as well.

# Leave no doubts. Simply put, make sure she knows that you are 100% into her—and not just for her looks. Encourage her to achieve her own goals and lend support whenever she needs it most. You don't have to make an elaborate production out of building her up; a sum of small daily gestures should do the trick.

# Have no doubts about your partner. Trust in them completely and you shouldn't have an issue.

*So, what's the end result of all these rules? A rock solid relationship. If it all sounds like too much to take on at once, don't panic. Just start with one strategy and build your way up. so one may be enough! Fights over dirty dishes and leaving the toilet seat up or down will still ensue, but in the long run remember that it's the effort that counts.

If the answer is no, then you should do something about it.

*If you have dyed hair, your hair is most likely a little dry. To protect your hair, wash your hair only 3 times a week. Deep conditioning can seriously fade dyed hair, so instead (this sounds gross but it really works wonders) put mayonnaise mixed with olive oil all over your hair, wrap it up in plastic wrap, sit for 2 hours, rinse and voila! Your hair is incredibly soft and silky. (What all emos want right?) The whole aim is to create a *mysterious* look.

Hi there, I wondered why you categorised [[Embed Album Art]] as

[[Category:Basketry Wicker and Rattan]] when it is clearly not about basket making.  I've removed the edit, however if you remember I sent you the information a day ago about how to categorise a wikiHow article [[Categorize a wikiHow Article]].  Have you had the opportunity to read it yet?  I am asking this because yesterday I had to remove the majority of edits you had made when you incorrectly categorised articles.  It may be a good idea to refrain from doing any more categorisation until you fully understand the policy.  Thanks for your understanding.

# Decide whether you want to take out a personal loan. While the terms of personal loans are usually only a little better than a credit card, the borrower can often access more, which sometimes make them attractive. Don't be fooled though, some of the loans have harsher terms than a credit card. Just make sure you read the fine print before you sign.

*Try not to preach or pick at others for what may seem like a lack of discipline on their part. If what they fail to accomplish does affect you in some way, have a gentle talk with them. If it doesn't, let them deal with their own problems. You cannot change others, only yourself.

*If your rear brakes are stronger than your front, stop driving the car. Although a perfectly balanced front/rear bias will stop the car the quickest, all car manufactures engineer with front bias. A bit of front bias is the safest condition. If your rears keep locking up first, then something is wrong. Stop driving the car. It needs to be inspected by some competent in diagnosing and repairing brake systems. The repair may be as simple as using a more aggressive pad compound in the front or less aggressive pad compound in the rear. If your rear brakes lockup, back off the brakes until they are no longer locking. Braking with rear brakes locked will likely result in a spin.
