Saying “I love you” at all times is not all that your partner needs, there are a hundred and one more sexy and charming affirmatives you can use to help build a stronger relationship with your husband or partner.
Below are some things that men love to hear;
Asking them for help: When you ask them for help, they feel like they are needed and it makes them happier in the relationship.
When you appreciate them for something good they have done, they get a childlike delight out of it. Don’t forget to acknowledge his input in the relationship, and he’d be more than happy to contribute more.
That being with them makes you happy: While most men are not very expressive of their emotions, letting them know you enjoy being with them makes them feel very happy.
Compliment their looks: Appreciate their style and clothing choices as this boosts their confidence.
When you want to get intimate: Don’t be shy in telling them when you want intimacy. Every time that you take initiative, inside their head, Christmas has come early. Give them these little surprises, they deserve as much.
Encourage them to have their personal space. When they spend time with their friends, they recharge their batteries and even you get peace of mind for a little while. Not to mention, to them, it would be getting the best of both worlds.
Let them know that you are always there for them: If they ever want to share anything with you, no matter how insignificant or embarrassing, you should listen and not judge. Cheer them on when you feel that they are a bit down. Support from a loved one can make all the difference in crossing a big hurdle.
Assurance: If you are parents, you need to assure your man that they are doing a good job. Parenting might be too new for them and feeling appreciated makes the tough job a little easier. Show them that you trust them and their judgment. It says a lot about the strength of your relationship.
Appreciation: When they do something for you, acknowledge it. Appreciate their little gestures. It makes all the difference in the world for them.
Take the time to tell them everything that you like about them. The little quirks, the small gestures or the big decisions, whatever it is.
When you're hurt: Let them know when you have been wronged. Pointing out what they've done that offended you doesn’t make you any smaller in their eyes, but it can save them a lot of hurt and you both minor misunderstandings. The two of you are part of a team. Show them support and love whenever they need it, both in words and in actions.
Go out of your way for them: Give them surprises. Plan a dinner date or a fun outing with your family. Give them time to relax with their loved ones. There is nothing in the world that they would appreciate more.
Always be there for each other, even if neither of you speaks a word.
