Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins are actual couple goals.

I've been seeing a lot of "Why Guys Should Be Taking Notes From Thomas Rhett" types of articles and tweets.

And yes, every girlfriend out there wants her boyfriend to take notes from Thomas Rhett, but have we, as girlfriends, stopped to think and take notes from Lauren Akins, as well? Maybe our boyfriends are looking for a Lauren Akins just as much as we are looking for a Thomas Rhett.

Ladies, you can't expect him to give you the Thomas Rhett love when you aren't giving him the Lauren Akins love in return. In other words, don't expect a perfect boyfriend when you aren't the perfect girlfriend. While nobody is perfect, we can, and should, strive to be the best girlfriends possible.

It's easy to get caught up in what you want your boyfriend to do better or to do more of. We get so caught up in wishing they were more romantic or more public about our relationship. We're trying to mold them into something that they aren't and in that process, we get so caught up in the selfishness of what we want that we forget to stop and think what do they want?

Ladies, next time you see a cute Instagram picture of what Thomas Rhett has treated his wife to that day, instead of wishing your boyfriend would take notes, you should take notes. Ask yourself: what can I do better in this relationship? How can I make him happier? How can I prove my love?

And ladies, remember, you can't expect a Thomas Rhett boyfriend when you have a Kim Kardashian attitude.
