5 Ways to Make Your Guy Feel Special


We always hear how guys should treat their girls like gold. While that’s certainly true, the guys also deserve a little TLC every now and then. Men, just like women, crave a sense of appreciation from their partner. They crave love and thoughtfulness even if they might not admit it. Not receiving any appreciation is one of men’s top complaints, so ladies, be sure to show your man how much you love him. Take a look below for some simple, yet thoughtful ways to show your man you care.

Compliment Him

You like getting compliments from your man right? Well, guess what? He likes getting them too. If your boy looks really good one night or cooks an awesome meal, let him know. Whatever he does that is special to you,  let him know how grateful you are to have him in your life. Taking the time to show him how much you appreciate what he’s doing will definitely resonate with him. It’ll make him feel better about himself and show him how much you love him and that you notice all of his efforts.

Support Him

There are a plethora of ways to show your support for your man, both physically and emotionally. What’s important is that you always make an effort to support your guy through thick and thin. If he’s having a rough day, take the time to try to turn it around somehow. Does he play on a softball or football team? Go grab some friends and cheer him on. Just knowing you have his back will make him feel closer to you.

Surprise Him

Everyone loves surprises. Whether it’s an unexpected kiss at the supermarket, a surprise love letter in the mail or an unexpected gift on a random Monday, your guy will love you all the more for it. Your tokens of affection don’t have to be extravagant. If you see something he would like, even if it’s just his favorite candy bar, it’ll put a smile on his face and in his heart. Just knowing that you took the time to get that extra something for him will show him how much you care about his happiness.

Be Intimate with Him

This will obviously depend on the relationship, but intimacy isn’t just about sex. Cuddling, kissing, holding hands and even scratching his arm or back are ways to be intimate with your boyfriend or husband. Doing things like this will keep the spark alive in your relationship and show your man how much you care about him. One of the best parts of being in a relationship is the ability to do all of these things as much and as often as you want, so take advantage of it.

Dress Up for Him

Take a few extra minutes to put on some makeup and perfume or wear something a little dressier for your next date night. Even if you’re just going to the movies, your guy will love the extra effort you’re putting in to look good for him. We always love to be comfortable around our guys, but getting all fancy once in a while will definitely rack up brownie points with them. Maybe you’re looking for something a little bit more risqué? You could always go through your lingerie collection in order to spice up a night in.
