Do you measure up?

In relationships, whenever the cruise isn't sailing smoothly, it's easy to play the blame game, fabricating excuses instead of looking within to see the errors of our ways. For this Tailor Issue, Flair is tapping into introspection mode in trying to figure out the issues. Ask yourself: do you measure up to her standards? Follow the sketch below and in no time you will be sewing permanent stitches of love into her heart.

 

THREAD THE NEEDLE OF COMMUNICATION

 

Instead of waiting for her to ask you about your day, beat her to the punchline and see her response. Initiate conversations and engage in them, scintillating throughout her daily. Leave sweet messages for her to read because you never know, you might be the one who turn her frown upside down, and sometimes that's all the attention she truly needs.

 

SUIT HER NEEDS

 

You know how a standard tailored suit comprises three pieces? Be sure to suit her needs three ways - physically, mentally and emotionally. Take a break, disrobe and ensure every inch from your ruler shifted above her skirt hemline is fashioned to the strokes of affection. In the interim, during hectic times, contribute significantly, seam into the yard of love she will feel from you through intellectual and soul-stirring stimulation.

 

BASTE BETWEEN BEING A LOVER AND A FIGHTER

 

Baste the zip to join the lover and fighter from within. Love her unconditionally, while fighting with her to resolve issues, as well as fighting for her to win her honour.

 

INTERLINE QUALITY TIME

 

Nothing like that little extra fabric of quality time to get the spark going again. It can entail shared passions or even new interests. As long as it's being interwoven by the both of you, then you're on the right path.

 

TAPER HER TEMPER

 

Best way to taper her temper is by becoming her kryptonite. Don't fight fire with fire and burn your garment. Instead, take on the mission and conquer it in fine style.

 

CUT TIES WITH EXES

 

Thread bearing is only for distressed jeans. So for a man of your class and taste, fringes are not for tailored relationships. So snip away the loose ends and have a clean, fresh start with your exotic, form-fitting bodice by your side.

 

PATTERN YOUR PARTNERSHIP

 

Pattern your relationship for just the two of you, paying keen attention to the seams, crevices and curvature of your partner. Do not slack off or pull it too tight, just make it perfectly fitted for comfort.

 

DART IN DATE NIGHT

 

Take the stress off the garment of your love by darting in date night as much as you possibly can. Then take the party behind closed doors, pin her up to your mannequin and rise to the challenges ahead.
