Not only women, therefore, feel the need to feel pampered; the partner also loves to receive attention and to be told from time to time those things that reassure you about your idea of him. In short, he cares that you see him as beautiful, intelligent, and strong. And if he wants to hear them say
What exactly? Here are 24 things guys like to hear from their girlfriends. (Don’t worry, they are very small attentions that certainly cost you nothing but that will make a difference to him.)
1. You make me feel protected
Man, you know, needs to feel strong and he does it by protecting you, even in small things. Even a simple hug when something is wrong in your life is his way of letting you know that he is there to defend you and keep you safe. So when you feel his protection… tell him!
2. You make me laugh like no one
Woman always says that the ideal man should make her laugh. And he knows this well! That’s why when you are having fun together in all simplicity, he will be delighted to hear you say the fateful words ” You make me laugh “: but they could be equivalent to “you are the right man”!
3. What beautiful eyes you have … and more!
Maybe it seems like a little bit of a “ sissy ” guy . Yet even man has his tender side and knowing that you see him beautiful through the eyes is a bit of confirmation of what he feels for you. Yes, because a man in love always adores his woman’s eyes. If you do the same, it will be a nice confirmation for him. Ah… obviously don’t stop just at the eyes. Telling him that he has a nice body or a nice butt fills him with pride!
4. No one has ever excited me as much as you
We said that: you must feel a hero, you must feel funny, you must feel beautiful. Well, man also wants to feel manly! Such as? Feeling that he ignites your desire like no one before! Not only do you make him happy but, to confirm your joyful words, he will thank you directly on the field. At this point he will make you happy! Isn’t it worth it?
5. I understand you
Men want to feel like winners. When external circumstances are not conducive to a victorious movement forward, the last thing you want to hear is criticism or advice on how to proceed. All he needs now is support: your smile, hug and words: “I understand how difficult it is for you now. If you want to talk, I’m here. “
6. I appreciate everything you did
In a healthy relationship, both partners are willing to support each other. It is important for a man to feel that his care and attention is needed. This gives him the confidence that he plays a significant role in the life of a loved one.
7. Be alone for as long as you need
To understand the problems, he sometimes needs to be alone, analyze the situation and emotionally live it. And this has nothing to do with his attitude towards you.
8. I was wrong. Please forgive me
In the heat of an argument, we can hurt each other with hurtful words. They hurt men as much as women. They need to hear apologies that make them feel like you value them and didn’t want to intentionally hurt them.
9. You did it amazing
Yes, your praise and admiration is important to us. The recognition of victories by a loved one inspires and stimulates further exploits. This applies not only to achievements, but also to everyday little things.
In other words, if he disassembled the garage or helped transplant plants, you should not take it for granted. Be generous with praise and he’ll be more willing to do things that make you happy.
10. You turn me on
Perhaps you don’t hear the question from him: “How do I look today?” This does not mean that he does not need confirmation that you find him attractive. Tell him that he is sexy and you feel good with him. And you will find a partner with whom you will still feel intimate.
11. Why don’t you hang out with your friends?
He will be grateful for this if he has a stressful period requiring extreme concentration. It is important for him to understand that you support and understand him and do not make him feel guilty for the fact that, having little free time, he decided to spend it not with you.
It is important to hear a simple word from a loved one as often as possible. This means that you notice and appreciate everything that he does for you.
13. tell me about it
Many men have big plans and love to look to the future. It can be a desire to start a business, improve your knowledge, or succeed in a hobby. By listening to it with interest, you make it clear that you take intentions seriously and believe in it.
14. I need you
From this inspiring phrase, men shine from within. Seeing him as a reliable partner is important to his self-esteem and self-confidence.
15. He’ll be happy to hear that only he can make you laugh
Couples who appreciate humor are among the happiest, plus men love to see us smile. If our he always manages to put us in a good mood let him notice it: “Nobody can make me laugh as much as you”, his self-esteem will skyrocket. If he feels that you appreciate his irony, rest assured that he will never miss a smile because he will try to maintain the standard you expect from him. Of course, don’t tell him he makes you laugh when he shows up with tousled hair or terry socks, in that case, maybe, he won’t take it well.
16. Tell him that only with him you feel safe
Even if by now women have reached full independence from all points of view, do not forget that it is important for your man to know that with him you feel safe and protected: this is the role he has always played, there is something ancestral in this. Saying “I feel safe with you” will make him feel strong instantly and he will be ready to cuddle you but also to console you when you feel sad. Be wary of men who are not sensitive to your tears or your sadness: they think manly but they are simply insensitive.
17. His advice is valuable to you
If you only trust his advice because you trust him and ask for his opinion on almost everything, then tell him that his advice is valuable to you. This way he will understand how important he is to you and this will also boost his self-esteem. So, in addition to asking his opinion on everything, point out how important it is to you and above all how much you appreciate it.
18. Tell him that you understand his needs
For men it is very important, even within the couple, not to see their freedom undermined: the game of soccer or beer with friends, so they will be happy to hear: “Saturday go out with friends too”, maybe some can only see them on weekends and will greatly appreciate your “sacrifice” to let them cultivate his friendships. In this way she will also understand your need to spend time with friends and the couple will benefit for sure.
