What Gives You Butterflies for Him?

Angel:

So my name is Angel and I’ve been watching you. You’re my go-to YouTube videos every time I have a heartbreak or something happen.

Matthew:

I’d love to come to you in some happier times.

Angel:

It is a happier time now. So actually it’s a flip question now. So because of your videos, most especially the ones wherein you have to cross out all the… Where you literally did the ex removal, the wrong person just to find the right guy.

Matthew:

So as soon as you meet a guy and he’s not giving you what you want, he’s showing you that he’s low investment, he’s flaky, he comes in and out of your life, you get rid of him.

Angel:

Because of that, I was able to find a relationship. I’m in a relationship right now, actually with an English guy, as well, who looks like Jameson, I realized. So there’s that.

Matthew:

Very good, well done.

Angel:

So he’s very supportive. He really invests. If we fight, we talk about it. But before all of that I was really into unrequited love and short-term relationships, and always from these relationships, I elicit feelings of like butterflies and all, for a short term of time. But then with this boyfriend, I was in that moment but we’re more than a year already. But I get the feeling and I’m afraid that it might have dwindled a little, the butterflies and everything.

Matthew:

For you or for him?

Angel:

For me to him.

Matthew:

Okay.

Angel:

But he really puts me on a pedestal, which is great. But that’s the thing. Is it because I’m not so used to being in a long-term relationship, that’s why I feel that way?

Matthew:

Okay. This is a great question.

Angel:

Thank you.

Matthew:

Look, firstly the level of butterflies you have over the course of a relationship may fluctuate. What you don’t want is a situation where it’s just a downward trend. It might be there’s a month where you’re busy, you’re stressed, something’s going on and there’s something that gets in the way of the two of you having the same desire. Whatever, those things happen. Especially over a course of many years or decades. But you don’t want a situation where the two of you just give in to this decline in desire over your relationship. That I don’t buy. So what you have to do is be fairly self-aware and say, “What is it about previous situations or maybe even about the beginning of this relationship, that did create butterflies for me?” What was that? Because that may have felt like an accident, but there’s a formula for creating desire.

Sometimes for example, we go to a party with our significant other and we just watch them talk to a group of people, and for that moment we’re not standing next to them together with them. We’re able to observe and the observation of our partner working a room and just being charming on their own, separate from us, can be very sexy, can’t it? Is everyone following me? Can’t that be a sexy moment when we see our partner from afar and not from up close? You go, “Oh wow, he’s a sexy guy.” You know what I mean?

Angel:

Yes.

Matthew:

It’s like seeing your partner perform or do something or give a speech. It’s like, “Oh look, they’re a person. They’re not just mine. They’re a person.” And when I see them as an individual again, I’m made more aware of the space that actually exists between us. Desire exists in space.

So what many of us do is we have desire for someone. We then close down all of the space until there’s no longer any space and now the fire of desire cannot breathe anymore. It needs oxygen. And we wonder why…. where’d the butterflies go? They need space to breathe.

So I would be looking at what were the circumstances under which those butterflies existed before? What were the moments where you watched him separate from you and said, “That is an attractive man.” And how could I recreate some of those moments? And how could I educate him on how to recreate some of those moments? Because sometimes we want our partners to be mind readers about everything… “I want to have butterflies again and you’re supposed to just know how to do that.”

And any time you get a clue, because you may not even know everything consciously, but anytime you get a clue – “Ah, that gives me that feeling” – note that down. What was it about that? Okay. Let me now create more of that. Let me talk to him about that. “I really liked when you did this. That really turned me on when you did that” – and by the way, use the right language too. If you say, “It was nice when you did that,” all right, but if you say, “That turned me on when you did that”…. I had someone say to me, “It turns me on that you’re expressive in your texts. It’s so hot.” Which by the way, you wouldn’t normally… I wouldn’t normally think this is a turn on, but this person said, “It’s such a turn on that you’re really expressive in your texts.” Well as a man, when you hear that, you go, “I’m going to be expressive in every single text I send now.”

If someone said, “I think it’s really nice that you are expressive”… eh. “It’s turn on.” “It’s hot.” You use desire language. Now you’re creating something I want to do more of because guess what? He wants to turn you on. He wants to know how to do that in a better way. He wants clues. You don’t have to make him feel small by telling him. It doesn’t have to be an education. It could just be you constantly letting him know the things that work for you, and he’ll learn that roadmap, learn more of that roadmap, learn more of that roadmap, and all of a sudden he has this whole formula for how to get you. But you have to help him with that. Make sense?

Angel:

Makes sense a lot.

Matthew:

All right. Thank you so much.

Angel:

Thank you, Matthew.

Matthew:

Let’s keep going. Let’s have a couple more [questions].

    Anyone else low-key crushing on the Matthew – Jaimeson bromance? Love the shared sense of humour between you both, that combine to achieve the perfect balance of hilarity & authenticity apparent in every message conveyed through your videos 2019 and still nailing it… Even in watching these older videos – the unique style, tone and quality have remained consistently entertaining and informative, year in and year out ✅♥️ Collaborative partnership on point

    The pertinent themes, and idiosyncratic spirit of their delivery, have continued to maintain an essence of avant-garde originality I have come to fervently associate with all of your work Matt- all the while auspiciously and perpetually evolving ⏳Evolving conjointly with the incredible community you have built, and additionally – in your own awareness & understanding with regard to relevant academic literature, the latest theoretical concepts & philosophies, popular ideologies, and the contemporary social climate ☮️

    The resultant achievement is both impressively clear and clearly impressive And as a consequence of the amazing dedication & tenacious hard work that is visibly discernable throughout the years, it is unequivocally evident ~and undeniably deserved~ that not only will your community invariably innervate & expand its growth (whilst remaining enthusiastically & avidly loyal❕) but this channel (in addition to the business as a whole ™️Ⓜ️♓️™️) will without doubt, both augment and expand exponentially – as well as categorically thrive in the process

    Hence it is with a quietly presupposed countenance that I feel confident in articulating an assertion on behalf of your audience as a whole, and proffer our earnest appreciation – with a stupendously sincere, genuinely grateful and notably necessary THANKYOU‼️ Thankyou for the aforementioned dedication & hard work that has ardently kept us laughing, learning, and LIVING Living purposefully, with a positive mindset and as zoetically as possible – without EVER letting us forget our own intrinsic value ✨❄️

    Furthermore, I would also like to express a personal THANKYOU… Thankyou for your commitment to (pun intended ), and transparency with, your own drive for personal growth & development I find this both inspirational AND aspirational❣️ It serves as reinforcement for my own conviction that my interest in the same area, & the enjoyment I derive from investing in this field, is personally beneficial as well as conducive to my pursuit of ‘overall well-being and happiness’ ~or, more accurately, “Eudaemonia”~ Moreover, observing a professional that I admire (whose vocational purpose really resonates with me) place such value on that which I personally also value very highly, helps to provide that extra dose of encouragement & motivation that can, quite often, be indispensable – especially on the occasions where I find that my own motivational levels have manifestly decided on an obstinate attitude & their waning appears imminent ⏸▶️

    Sooo… apologies for the above dissertation I tried to temper the thesis-ness with some emoji accents to keep it fun – noone enjoys dry brainal right? I just felt compelled to send some love and gratitude your way For a number of reasons that I’ve most likely (definitely) mentioned, AND, because genuine quality is becoming harder & harder to find these days – and therefore, needs to be recognised accordingly and shown authentic appreciation as often as possible… And in as much detail as possible. Obviously.

    But what’s the chemistry and butterfly? And how important is it?

    Is it necessary to feel it from the first dates? Or is it something that can be built up by learning him more? I usually cannot say no to the nice and well behaved guys even though I don’t feel the butterflies. Always wondering if chemistry can be come later. But I don’t know how long I should wait to feel the butterflies!

  4. vera says:

    Your videos are a turn on! And the way you smile with your eyes are a turn on :) Please keep it up!

  5. Melly says:

    Thanks for that, really interesting and good tip.
    I get that we should keep desire on and not „get used“ to the relationship too fast and most of all let space there!

    But I don‘t totally agree on butterflies. Of course it‘s nice to have and we should feel good around him. But butterflies are something that occur mostly in the early stages and is totally normal to go away a bit. It would be really unhealthy to still feel dizzy after 10 years of marriage every time we see him. We should at some point put down the pink glasses. What do you think about that?

  6. Lani says:

    This was a great question and answer, keeping desire alive in a relationship is key, and I loved your advice to be observant and present.

    In this case Angel was referring to “butterflies” and the short term relationships she’s previously had. That feeling is simply a chemical reaction in the brain and it’s medically documented that it only lasts for between 6-24 months (at least that’s why my psychologist told me during the counselling I had after my marriage break up). It’s addictive which is why some people often go from one short term relation to another looking for that hit. Being in a long term relationship (spanning decades) means that the butterflies likely won’t be there but it’s evolved into a deeper attachment.

    When he would make dinner and serve it. When we shared a drink. Slow dancing. Laughing like kids.

    When my ex used to do little diy projects for me… Especially with his shirt off

  9. Andrea Cooper says:

    Very hot advice, it really turned me on! Too bad I have no one to try it out on. It’s been 4 years of dating, implementing your techniques, and nothing. I’m exhausted.
