Because of the fact that men don’t show their emotions too often, we sometimes forget to make them feel loved and appreciated.
Your partner does so much for you, he makes you feel loved and respected.
He doesn’t mind putting everything aside for you.
You must have been wondering what you can do to make him feel loved, because you think you could do more.
That’s why I’m presenting you with a few things that are extremely meaningful in a relationship that you can do to make your man feel loved.
1. Show him he’s your priority
Your partner will understand the few instances in your life when he can’t be a priority, but you shouldn’t make that a constant thing.
He shouldn’t feel like he’s a burden or like you will always have more important things to do in your life that need your attention.
Be there for him when he needs you and spend all the quality time together that you’re both able to provide.
2. Listen to him and remember the little details
You yourself know how special it is when someone remembers the small details about you.
It makes you realize how much they actually listen to you even though it doesn’t seem like it.
He will know that you care about him and that you love him if you truly listen to him and remember the things he talks about.
If you truly listen, your conversations will become much more colorful and you will find more topics to talk about.
This will lead to getting to know each other better and spending more time together.
3. Be supportive of his career
In today’s world, it’s not always easy to be fully confident in the career path we choose for ourself. Your support will mean the world to him.
Don’t bring him down and don’t let him see that you doubt him (if you do). Instead, be completely supportive of his dreams and his career.
He chose this path for himself and he values your opinion a lot.
Your support will help him find the motivation to keep going when things get tough, so he really does need it a lot.
Supporting him will be the best way to show him how much you love him.
4. Be there for him
Men don’t cry often, do they? It’s like he can’t find a way to let loose. That’s why you have to be there for him.
You have to show him that caring about things and crying when you’re upset are completely normal things.
Be his shoulder to cry on and his voice of reason.
Tell him that you will always be there for him, through thick and thin and that he doesn’t have to worry about losing you.
Make sure that your actions reflect these words, because believe it or not, men need the same support we women do.
5. Ask for his opinion on important topics
We all know that women are strong and independent creatures who can make their own decisions and do things on their own.
Involving him will give him a sense of security and asking for his opinion will give him a reason to feel needed in the relationship.
Ask him what he thinks about a certain issue you have come across at work or about his opinion on a dress you were thinking of buying.
It may not be a big deal to you, but for him, it means that you value his opinion.
Just asking what he thinks about certain topics is very important and it shows him how much you value his presence in your life.
6. Don’t demand change
There is a difference between talking things through and demanding change from him.
If you have an issue with something he does or how he acts, you shouldn’t ask him to change because of your expectations.
If you want him to act differently or change entire parts of his personality then he’s not the man for you.
Admire and celebrate his uniqueness, because those are the traits that made you fall in love with him in the first place.
7. Surprise him from time to time
A surprise doesn’t always have to be an expensive gift, because sometimes that is not what your partner craves.
Do you know the things he currently needs in his life?
You can surprise him with something from his Amazon Wish List or you can make him his favorite dish.
He has probably told you about certain things he wants, so why not surprise him?
You can be creative because no one knows your partner as well as you do. Do whatever you believe will show him how loved and appreciated he is.
8. Compliment him often
Let’s be honest, sometimes life gets so hectic that we forget to see all the things our partner does for us.
We are so focused on our own stuff that we forget to look at everything they do in their life.
Don’t forget to give your partner a compliment when they do a good job at something. I know that it sounds too simple to actually work but it does.
So many of us don’t know how to take a compliment without getting embarrassed exactly because we are not used to it.
Don’t let him believe that you don’t see his efforts. Compliment him often.
9. Initiate intimacy
This might mean a lot of things in your relationship.
A man can get tired of always being the one to initiate intimacy, so take one for the team every once in a while and initiate it yourself.
At least simple cuddles while watching a movie or… well, use your imagination.
10. Give him his space
We often don’t see when all of our presence suffocates our partner. Give him his time and space when he needs it.
Don’t fight him when he wants time out with his friends and don’t ask to tag along.
This is also the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with yourself.
Give him space and do all the things that you don’t get to do while you’re with him. This works both ways!
11. Don’t give up on him
When times get tough and you see him struggling, don’t just give up on him.
There will be times when he won’t be able to put his full potential into the relationship and you won’t feel that he’s completely there.
These are the times when he needs you the most.
He needs you to know that you love him. He needs to feel loved and appreciated in order to get through those tough times together with you.
Don’t just throw in the towel when you see him struggling. Believe me when I tell you that this is the best way to show him how much you love him.
