10 SWEET things HE needs to hear!
1. I respect you
Truth to be told everyone wants to feel respected. No matter what the gender is. But men need more attention than what they claim. "A man wants to know that you are focusing solely on him and that he is your priority, your sole interest in life. When you do focus on him, you will get so much in return." Dr. Eris Huemer, a licensed marriage and family therapist explains.
2. You look handsome
This is such a confidence booster. Men love to be told that they look nice. Imagine every day in the morning before work someone reminds you how handsome you look! It makes you feel unstoppable for the rest of the day. It refreshes your confidence when you know that there is someone that loves and appreciates every inch of you.
3. Thank you
Being grateful for the tiniest thing your man does for you is the sweetest thing. Even when there is no one around it is nice to remember to thank him for whatever he has done, even the tiniest bit of it. "Whether it's that he made your coffee just the way you like it, or holds the door for you, tell him how much you appreciate his efforts and, above all, be specific about what he did and how it made you feel. That way, he'll know exactly what he's done well, and he'll do it more often," says Lisa L. Payne.
4. I trust you
There is nothing better for a man than to feel like they are trustworthy especially when it comes to their woman. They want to feel like they can make their girl feel safe. That they can be their shelter from the rain. Protect them against everything. So saying that you trust them especially when they are the most vulnerable and fragile will give them so much hope and courage.
5. I’m on your side
"Find a way to let your partner know, on a daily basis, that you're in his corner," says Dr. Shannon Kolakowski, psychologist. "You might show your loyalty by standing up for your guy when he feels the world is against him. Let him know you support what he's passionate about. Show him that you value what he values. This adds a sense of teamwork, security, and intimacy to your relationship."
6. I’m sorry
Whenever you get angry or agitated to the point that you want to pick up a fight, always remember, leave the place before your outburst, take a deep breath, drink a glass of water, come back to him and apologize. Keep in mind that you need to apologize for the things that YOU are the one to blame for, nothing else.
7. Your friends are fun
Friends and the people who are surrounding your man are the ones that their existence in his life is crucial or they wouldn’t be there in the first place. Your approval is what they want especially because you are an important part of his life. They want to see you getting along with their people. Hanging out with his friends or family will also help you to get to know other sides of him.
8. That was delicious
The need to provide for their women is something that every man has! However, there are times when they are not that talented in that specific field no matter how good their intentions are. For example cooking! Make sure that he is being rewarded for his efforts by you, no matter how awful the food tastes.
9. You make me happy
Sophie Keller says “If you are fully and completely with no armor, you will magnetize and attract the perfect person for you because light attracts the light.” Steve Harvey says: “We men will do anything humanly possible to impress you. You’re the driving force behind why we wake up every day. We drive fancy cars because of women. We dress nice, put on cologne, get haircuts and try to look all shiny and new for you. We do all of this because the more our game is stepped up, the more of you we get.”
10. I’m proud of you
Dr. Sue Johnson says “Men are very sensitive to performance issues. They worry about disappointing you. Telling him that he’s the best, most loving man has a megawatt positive impact. Men need reassurance that they are doing a great job. Most times when you ask a withdrawn man why he started to shut down, he says ‘I just didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t seem to get it right so I just gave up.’ Reassurance and validation are like an inoculation against this.” Remember that men, just like women, need love and attention.
