Anyway, you're a PC gamer right? I would recommend either giving yourself a vast minecraft project or, download some NES games and try getting through those without save-scumming. Games like Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania, Gargoyle's Quest II...
I had a dream of my wife...She was dead but, it was OK...
You can absolutely please them, but to keep them interested, you don't get to open up to them. Once they feel like there is no more to mystery about you, nothing more to discover about you, their attraction level drops and they leave.
TL;DR: Date your women. Open up to your friends.
But this is what will eventually lead to divorce, if it continues that far (which is I assume what people want in the end, marriage and all)
You gotta be honest with them to find a lifelong mate...and if they find that to be boring, they ain't the one. It's probably best in the end.
Open up with your friends? Well...your significant other should be your best of best friends. So I don't see where this is going.
What most often leads to breakups/divorce is this: The man thinks "I won. I got her. The game is over. Yay!" And he gets complacent with the relationship...does not notice that his wife's attraction level is dropping. He projects his happiness onto her instead of actually noticing the warning signs that she is becoming less and less satisfied. This is why so many guys say "I never saw it coming! She broke up with me out of the clear blue sky!"
Courtship is a neverending process. You never stop building attraction, and actively paying attention to her tone, body language, and actions. Part of building a woman's attraction is simply her perception that she doesn't know absolutely everything about you, and building anticipation for her spending time with you and finding out more. It doesn't mean you lie to her, it means you manage her perception of you so she doesn't get bored. It means never running out of things to talk about, because you didn't spend 4 hours on the phone every night for the first month you went out.
But your friends don't leave you once they get to know you. In fact, once they find out what you're about, they decide whether they like your company and like doing things with you or don't. Women shouldn't be any different.
In the last second of life they're going to show you how How they run this show, sure, run it into the ground
