There is an age-old saying – the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. It may sound strange, but it is an amazing way to show that you care. Cook his favorite meal and win his love.

He will have something exciting to look forward to.

You can also find a way to sneak a pair of your sexiest underwear in his briefcase or in the glove compartment of his car. Then, text him to tell him where to look. If he asks questions, tell him you’re quiet until tonight.
