The Good Men Project. James M. Sama wrote a fun list for guys about what little things women like in a big way and how to make women happy. Well, I say the same goes for guys.
17 powerful ways how to make your man happy (proven formula)
Where did we get the notion that only women like to be told they look good, smell good, are hot, smart or sexy? All my life I had the idea that guys were more secure about their looks and sex appeal than women are. Guys are supposed to not care about things like what clothes they wear or whether their new haircut looks good, right?
So let him know when you see him and just get that oh my gosh you are so hot tingle. Tell him he looks hot when he wears that old beat-up tee shirt. Let him know how much you love smelling his neck when you hug. If your partner works outside the home, let him know that you appreciate what he does.
2. create a mood
Even if he loves his job, I guarantee you there are days when he thinks about throwing in the towel or yelling at his boss, or just hiding away in his office all day. Part of the reason might be you, and your family. Bread win ning is an incredible responsibility for any person, and society emphasizes this even more so for men.
Their earning ability, sadly, is often attached to their value in our society. As much as he probably loves being the at-home parent, and finds immense joy in it, all parents have times when they, too, want to throw in the towel or diaperyell at the boss the baby?
Tell him you appreciate it and that you see his commitment. Making him feel like your own personal sex diety, and him reciprocating, will probably make both your lives happier.
Nobody ever owes their partner sex, but cultivating desire is a good thing in a healthy relationship. Even at home you can talk about fantasies or look at sexy photos together, like the diverse set in Dr. Or take some boudoir photos of yourself.
Try taking close-ups of a sexy but not-so-obvious body part. Your bra strap on your shoulderthe top of your undies peeking out from your jeans at the hip. There are lots of ideas out there for inspiration. Choose to fantasize about him, about a time you were together, about that favorite part of his body that you love so much.
3. how to make your husband happy? sex!
Then heap all that desire upon him when you have the next opportunity to be together, alone. That was a lot of pressure to put on my husband, and not very fair. We eventually learned how to schedule our alone time—and I took advantage of him being so supportive of my need to work out, write or just read a book in bed.
Give him a kiss. But you need to set that phone down and see the man in front of you. When I get stuck in this cycle I try to take a deep breath and consider the worst thing that could happen if I ignored whatever is buzzing at me.
How to keep your man happy in bed
Often when I put down my phone I see him there, and really look at his face. Make a deal with your partner: if you have to pick up your phone for something urgent, let the other know what it is in just a few words. Try not to let it slip by while you stare at a screen.
Just take a moment to connect, eye-to-eye, and share looks with one another. Look him in the eye with a smile or a playful expression, and hold his gaze for three seconds. He may be your boyfriend or husband now, but he still deserves to feel special.
One key to a lasting relationship is to give your partner a million happy little moments with you, and he should do the same in return. After all, studies show that a happy marriage seems to come down to how much kindness exists between the partners. This article was originally published with the Good Men Project.
