There’s nothing like being in love. And so, when you feel like you’ve found the one to share that experience with, that’s rare. So rare in fact that it’s important that you do all that you can to make him feel like you’re the luckiest woman on planet earth!
One way to do that is to find ways to make him feel super special.
If you’re wondering just how you can do that, here are some things that you can implement today that will bring a smile to his face, warm his heart and in turn, want to do some of these same things for you too.
1. Tell him that you love him
If there’s one thing that never really gets old, it’s telling someone how much you love them. You can say it verbally, you can send a text. Or you can give him a hilarious greeting card like this one. (Anyone who loves someone as much as Kanye West loves himself is…really in love!-LOL)
2. Let him know he’s needed
Men don’t only want to be wanted. They want to be needed. Let your man know that you need him in your life. He will definitely appreciate it.
3. Be affectionate
Contrary to popular belief (or rather “assumption”), men do not only want to be close to a woman when it’s time for sex. They also like to cuddle, hold hands and be kissed on the cheek. Hey, if you don’t believe us, ask your man. He’ll tell you. #wink
4. Offer your support
When he comes to you to tell you about a problem or if he asks your advice regarding a challenge or dilemma, make the time to be there for him. In this world, all of us need some support.
5. Ask for his help
If you send off the message that you can do everything yourself, he’s going to start to wonder what he’s there for. Although it’s a sign of vulnerability, it’s also a sign of trust when you choose to ask him for help.
6. Take an interest in the things he likes
You’re both individuals. This means that you’re probably going to have different interests. But if you want to spend more quality time with the man that you love, put forth the effort to take an interest in the things that he does. He’ll see that you’re trying to get closer to him and that will definitely work in your favor. Plus, it’s how you can convey to him that it’s not all about you. (Also something that will work for you!)
7. Give him compliments
You like to hear how cute you are, right? So does he. Simple as that.
8. Plan some of your dates
Sometimes, it can be a lot of pressure to expect a man to come up with all of the ideas for a date. So, let him know that you recognize that by calling him up and saying “I would really like to spend time with you this weekend. Don’t worry about a thing. I got it all figured out.”
9. Ask for his advice
Doesn’t it make you feel good when he wants to know what you think about something? This goes both ways. Asking your man for his advice sends out the message that you think that he’s smart and insightful. That you value his point of view.
10. Bring him around your family
When you take the step to bring him around your family, what that does is send the message to him that you’re proud of him. That you want to “show him off” to the people who mean the most to you.
11. Be “electronics-free” when you’re together
Although we live in a time where virtually everyone has a smartphone (which is basically a handheld computer), that doesn’t mean that it has to be on ALL of the time. By turning it on vibrate when you’re together, you’re sending the message that no one is more important or a priority than him right now.
12. Keep the drama down to a minimum
Challenges are going to come up from time to time. But no man wants to feel like every time he’s with you, there’s going to be some kind of argument or issue. So, do your best to keep the drama down the a minimum. One way that you can do that is by choosing your battles wisely.
13. Be spontaneous
If you’ve been together for a while now, it can be easy to get caught up in the routine known as “the same ole same ole”. One way to break that pattern is to do something spontaneous everyone once in a while. Take an impromptu road trip. Pack a picnic lunch for the middle of the week. Buy him tickets to his favorite sport. Love is fun when you never know quite what to expect.
14. Show gratitude
A simple “thank you”, whether it’s verbal or physical, can go a really long way.
If there’s one thing that a lot of men would probably go on record saying that they wish more women did, it would be listen. Listening means letting someone complete a thought. Listening means thinking about how to respond before actually doing it. Listening also means not hearing what you want to hear but hearing what was actually said. If you can master that, your man will most definitely feel special.
