No matter where you’re at in a relationship, if you just started the relationship or you’ve been married for 15 years, somethings will never change. We all want to feel sexy, that’s a given; but we also want our partners to appreciate us and let us know they need us in their lives. Usually it is just the women who ask for these things, but men need these too!
What to Say to Your Man
Below are six things you can say to your man, regardless of what stage you are in the relationship, that will send him to cloud 9 incredibly smitten.
- You look fantastic.
Guys have insecurities just like women do. He probably won’t show it, but sometimes he may be wondering if his belt matches his shirt or if his butt looks good in those jeans. It is always a good pick me up when you pay him a compliment and let him know that you find him incredibly sexy.
- I love your [insert part of the body].
While you may tell him he looks fantastic, it never hurts to get specific with the compliment. If you want some extra brownie points, you could always fill in the blank with you-know-what. Men tend to be sensitive about their family jewels, so when you make a point to compliment him on them, he will be pleased.
- I love it when you [insert action].
Traditionally, men are the initiators, and although sometimes your guy doesn’t make the first move, he may often feel like he should. You can help him by actually telling him what you like. Have you ever stopped to think that if you haven’t complimented him about what he is doing, he may think that you don’t like whatever he is doing? Of course, the more often you tell him that you enjoy when he does XYZ, the more he will want to do it. It’s essentially a win-win!
- That lady just checked you out.
Even if she didn’t, guys always like hearing that another woman is checking them out; it helps boost their self-confidence. It also lets him know that you caught another woman checking him out and you don’t mind letting him know. It proves that you are confident enough to tell him because you know he won’t stray.
- You’re right.
Come on, admit it… Everyone wants to be right and it is so hard to admit that you were wrong. As much as we don’t want to admit it, sometimes guys do know what they are talking about. So, throw him a bone and tell him every once in a while when he is. Yeah, it’ll probably be hard to do, but it will be worth it.
- Can you help me?
Guys love feeling like they are needed. It gives them a sense of purpose and harkens back to the need to feel like a man. This doesn’t mean you have to ask him to do something that you could easily do yourself, but if you need some help from time to time, don’t be afraid to ask.
