Men are believed to be less emotional than women. It’s said that they can do without an external display of affection. Well, we are taught not to be expressive.
But if you recognize these little things in us, it will mean the world to us:
1. Being handsome
We love to compliment our partners and tell them how beautiful they are. But sometimes, just the word ‘handsome’ sent our way would make us feel amazing. It just gives us the confidence we need. When we put in the effort to look good, this simple word can make all of it worth it.
2. Making someone proud
We strive towards ambitions and goals. We can work like a mule to get what we want. But all of it is extremely tiring. We don’t complain – that’s how we are. But a reassurance from our loving partner that we make them proud can work wonders. It can easily drain off all exhaustion and charge us back to full power.
3. Noticing the difference
Men build their bodies. We work out and strive to get those difficult abs and biceps, and be more able to protect you and ourselves. But while we are eating healthy and trying to become men, our motivation sways. A simple notice of difference in our physique, just an acknowledgement will reinforce that drive in us and make us go pumping again.
4. Being wanted
We are always making the first move, slipping in the sensuous touches and initiating sex. But it feels like we are the ones doing everything. We love you and want you, but sometimes, we want to be loved by you too. A bit of initiation from your end would reassure us that we are wanted too, wanted by no one else but you. And that means the world to us.
5. Making you feel amazing
Men love to satisfy their women on all levels. You know about your wants and we are willing to learn and be your best lover. An assurance that we are hitting the right spot is just the confidence booster we need. The more you encourage it, the better we become!
6. Opening up
Men are not really great communicators. We have learned to keep things to ourselves and solve it. It’s frustrating, but we can open up to people if they are willing to listen. Be that person – tell your man that you won’t be mad if he has something to tell. It does a world of good to him to open up in front of his special person. Just be sure you don’t really get mad or else you’ll shut him off completely.
7. Being trustworthy
It’s difficult to trust people these days, but time hasn’t changed enough to make trust take a backseat in relationships. It remains the foundation of it. It is generally thought that men can’t be trusted and somehow, we have begun doubting ourselves too. It makes us insecure. If our partner just mentions that they trust us, that’d be enough. We know we can keep your trust till the end of days!
8. Trusting one another
Trust goes both ways. While making your man believe that you trust them, don’t forget to mention about yourself too. Make him secure about the relationship – nothing can go wrong that way.
9. A little thanks
It’s the little things that matter the most. If it’s the tiniest work, like bringing takeaway home or making coffee just for you – a little thanks makes it all worth it. It’s not demanded, but ‘Thank You’ brings a note of appreciation that speaks volumes.
10. Respecting you
As men, we value respect. It makes us feel valuable. We love being respected by brothers, friends, colleagues and our special partner. Respect in love brings a whole new level to a relationship. It cannot exist without it.
11. Supporting each other
Being committed to someone means becoming empowered by a strong support system. Any decision we take will be strengthened tenfold if we know you support it. We value your opinion, and we want to know we are on the right path.
12. A feeling of appreciation
A ‘thank you’ may acknowledge our work, but we need to feel appreciated too. We want to be the best version of ourselves, to work out, to be protective to the ones who we care for and to be loving – there’s so much ground to cover. Knowing that our work is being appreciated does not make all this effort go to waste.
13. Making you happy
One of the ultimate dreams of a man is to see his woman happy. They’d trip over deliberately to make you laugh. Your happiness makes them happy. Make a point to acknowledge that we have made your world a bundle of joy. Our purpose will be fulfilled.
No matter how closed your man may seem, he needs love and affection as much as you do. If you make a point to put these little efforts into your relationship, you’ll fire up your man’s ambition and happiness and build a much better mutual relationship. Make it happen!
