I love my boyfriend. He’s caring, sexy and amazing, and he makes me feel great, too. But while it’s common knowledge how to make women feel good (be honest, flowers and chocolate are probably never going to fail...), it’s much harder working out how to make him feel loved. I’ve been reading books and quizzing the experts, and here’s my top 10 ways to make him feel loved...
1 Make Him Feel Masculine
My boyfriend empties the bin. I could do it, but I don’t, I always ask him. Why? It’s a man's job, and he is the man. He likes feeling needed, and although he sometimes grumbles, he likes having the responsibility. It makes him feel like a man, and it makes him feel like you need him which in turn gives him an ego boost which men love. That's just something you can't change about them.
Give him a kiss in an elevator, flirt while making tea, or in the supermarket, show him you are still attracted to him, and make him feel special. He’ll really appreciate it, and flirting will make you feel hot, too!
Compliment him on things you love about him. Tell him you love his lasagne, his ears or his gorgeous smile. Tell him that when he chases the kids he looks gorgeous. Whatever it is that you like, tell him. He’ll feel great, and you will too.
4 Feed His Ego
Grab his hand next time someone checks him out, and act a little possessive and jealous. Tell him he got checked out, and you are showing your ownership. He’ll feel so flattered and loved...
5 Appreciate Him
Take something he usually does, and do it for him, just once. Does he hoover, or put the children to bed? Just take one thing, do it for him, and let him relax while you do it. Then tell him how much you appreciate him helping you, there’s a lot of men that don’t, you know! I might even wash up for my boyfriend tonight...
Did he re-do the bathroom, or take you to a nice restaurant for a romantic date? Boast about the great things he does to your friends while he can hear. He’ll be very flattered, and feel really appreciated. It’ll also encourage him to do it again, so you benefit too!
7 Tell Him
Tell him. You’d be surprised how many women forget to say those simple words to him. Tell him directly or find a creative way to let him know. Tell him he is an amazing father, a great cook, a brilliant husband. Tell him he looks hot, or that you miss him, and that you can’t wait to see him after work. It’ll mean more than you can ever imagine.
8 Make a Date
Do you usually meet the girls on a Saturday night, or visit your parents on a Sunday? Change your plans, send the kids, dogs or chores away, and spend the day with him, doing something you both enjoy. Giving him time and attention is the best way to show that you love him!
9 Buy Him Something
Grab his favourite chocolate bar on the way home from work, plan a little in advance and make his favourite meal, buy him his teams shirt, or just a beer. Buy him something that shows that you know him, and what he likes. It doesn’t need to be big, he’ll be flattered anyway.
10 Be Confident
Be who you are, and have confidence in yourself. Men can’t love women they don’t respect, so be who you are, love yourself and make him respect and admire you. Ever wondered what makes Posh and Becks a power couple? Their confidence and respect for each other!
I have been using these tricks for the last few weeks, and the difference has been huge. My boyfriend has been much happier, even though he says he felt loved before, and I feel much happier too. Making him feel loved? It’s worth it, you’ll feel so much closer together, and it’s almost effortless, too. Have you got a tip for making your man feel loved? Please let me know!
