Gentlemen, let’s preface this article by saying that all of these things go both ways. We understand that women are often not very great at communicating their true feelings. However, there are a few things that should be seen as unwritten rules. If you have a partner who you care deeply for and have been with for a while, then you would want to make her feel special. Considering the love of your life does so much to make you happy, don’t you want to make her feel the same way? If you feel like something is missing in your relationship and you want to make your partner happier, here are nine ways for you to do the same:
1. Take Her Out On Dates
Whether you’re two years into your relationship or twenty, every woman out there loves being taken out on dates and being made to feel special. Think about how amazing you felt on your first date. Why not try to recreate that very same feeling on an anniversary? Or maybe even on a regular day when she’s had a hard day at work.
2. Help Her With Chores
Even if your partner is a housewife and handles all the chores herself, we’re sure that she would always appreciate an extra helping hand. Maybe you make a fantastic chicken curry, and she loves eating it. Why not surprise her and make her a delicious hot meal and even do the dishes to help out later? We guarantee that she’ll appreciate the gesture more than you know.
3. Leave Sweet Messages
There’s just something about a sweet text message that would just make any woman’s heart melt. While a sweet text might not seem like such a big deal to you, we guarantee that it’s a great way to make your ladies’ day. If she’s having a hard day at work or exhausted from chasing after your kids, a sweet message might be just what she needs to perk her up.
4. Give Her Compliments
Don’t you love getting compliments? Let’s be honest; we all do. This is especially true for women and people whose love language is words of affirmation. If you don’t believe that a compliment will light her day, just give it a try. We guarantee that something as simple as telling her she looks pretty will make her beam from ear to ear for the rest of the day.
5. Give Her Some Space
Everybody needs a certain level of space. If you are constantly trying to edge your way into your partner’s schedule and don’t give her room to grow by herself, we guarantee it will spell doom. Just as you enjoy having your boys’ nights with your bros, she too enjoys having a girls’ night with her besties.
6. Open Up To Her
Trust us when we say this—communication and trust are keys to a successful relationship. If you want your relationship to go the distance and last, then it is essential that you communicate your true feelings. If she has done something to upset you or you are not feeling up to doing something that she wants you to do, then let her know! Keeping things on a simmer will just end up building up, and you will eventually explode in frustration.
7. Remember Important Dates
We don’t just mean Birthdays and Anniversaries. Yes, remembering those is extremely important, but we’re talking about other things too. Do you remember when you had your first date? Or the day you kissed for the first time. We bet that she’ll be extremely surprised or maybe a little embarrassed that she didn’t remember the day. Sure, you don’t need to celebrate each day with aplomb, but there’s no harm in celebrating a few special days by doing something different.
8. Try Getting Along With Her Friends
No, we’re not asking you to replace her in her squad. Trust us when we say that she will really appreciate you taking the time out to get to know her best friends. They are her best friends for a reason, aren’t they? Plus, getting on their good side is always a bright idea, isn’t it?
9. Say “I Love You”
Of course, this should be a given. If you’re in a serious relationship, you’ve probably dropped the “L bomb” plenty of times, but it doesn’t hurt to keep dropping it every chance you get. Nothing makes a woman feel more special in a relationship than hearing her man say the words “I love you” to her over and over again. Heck, it’s the sweetest three words you can say to anybody besides, “I have pizza.”
In the end, no matter how and what you choose to do or say to your partner, you should know that you are well-loved. Just as your partner does so much for you, you should try to do something special for her and make her day brighter. Do let us know all of your thoughts on this article in the comment section below.
