Almost everyone wants a relationship that they can brag about to their friends, families, and colleagues, but even if you’re a very private person, you still want a relationship where you and your partner are happy. A relationship is not a one-way street though, so you can’t just have your guy keeping you happy without you giving of yourself in return.
If your guy is doing all the work, the relationship will weaken, he’ll tire of not feeling appreciated, and in the end, he’ll get bored with you. When the relationship reaches that point it won’t be long before you’re both miserable and unsatisfied.
You are going to want to know how to please your man and keep him happy and interested in you. It should be your goal to try and make your guy’s life a little bit easier every day, and there’s no better way to ensure his happiness than to be aware of and acknowledge his needs. Here are a few tips to help please your man, and you may be surprised at just how easy it can be to ensure your guy remains content:
Make him feel secure
You want him to feel like he will always have someone there for him if he falls. He needs you to be there to catch him emotionally, and to make him feel as if he can do anything. A man wants to be appreciated and to feel like a hero – your hero, but even heroes need a little extra love and nurturing every now and again.
If he has a bad day, be there by simply letting him vent, or to offer a compassionate ear. Just simply show him you’ll be there through the tough times as well as the good days. Sometimes the simplest of caring gestures can help in pleasing your man because you can make him feel desired, wanted, loved, and emotionally safe with you.
To that end, praise him in front of others – remember, he wants to be your hero. Showing him he’s important to you when in front of others will boost his confidence and make him feel appreciated.
Surprise him with a gift
The gifts don’t have to be extravagant, and can be something simple. Surprising him with gifts will make him feel more wanted and appreciated. It’ll make him happy to know that he doesn’t need a special occasion to feel loved and appreciated. Essentially, you want to show him you’ve been thinking of him.
For instance, if you know your guy has been wanting a new video game or hunting items then surprise him with a game or some inexpensive hunting equipment. The key here is to keep the gift inexpensive: You don’t want him to think you are trying to buy his love.
Also, you don’t want him to feel guilty because you bought him a lavish gift. Remember, the goal is to please him, not to make him emotionally uncomfortable.
Never forget your inner child.
Growing up is a part of life sadly, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a completely boring person. You can still from time to time be that fun, giggly, shy, school girl.
Part of pleasing your man involves setting a welcoming, warm, and comfortable atmosphere when the two of you are together. He wants to laugh and to enjoy the ride life has to offer. Be fun, and exciting. Surprise him with movies or dinner.
Give him his space when he needs it
Your man probably loves having you around, but 24/7 is just too much for anyone. He needs to be able to have his guy time too. Give him time where he can hang out with his friends and not get a million texts from you constantly, or just some time to himself to do the things he likes to do.
If you text him just to see if he’s okay, then that’s fine, but don’t text him “I miss you” or “I love you” constantly, it’ll make him feel like he’s on a leash.
Ask him for his help every now and then
Guys love to feel needed. All guys have problem-solving skills and love to show them off. Whenever you need help tell him because he will be full of pride after having helped you with something. Boosting his confidence will keep him content, especially if he feels needed.
Give him compliments
Guys are just like girls and love being complimented. They won’t admit it, but they do. By complimenting him, you make him glad that you’re noticing him and his needs.
Don’t fight dirty
In every relationship sometimes disagreements arise, and how you handle those disagreements makes all the difference in the world. Part of pleasing a man, believe it or not, is fighting fair when there’s a disagreement.
Remember, words are lasting and the things you say in the heat of the moment can hurt for a long time to come. If you handle disagreements fairly, you won’t have to worry about your words or actions haunting you or your man.
Don’t hit him where it hurts, like bringing up exes, or talking bad about his family. Even though they don’t always seem like they’re not bothered by it, they really are. They can’t choose their family, and what happens with an ex is in his past, and such issues shouldn’t be anyone else’s concern because he’s with you now.
Put some trust in him
A number one issue most people end up having in a relationship is that they have trust issues. If he goes out with friends, to drink, or to do any type of activity, even if you’ve been hurt in the past, you have to move forward and see that he’s not the same ex you were with before, or that he can change after making a mistake. You just have to trust him. Trust is a number one key to keeping your man happy.
Some guys are different and need different things to keep them happy, but if you know you’re man well enough, then you’ll know exactly what pleases him. Don’t make him do all the work with keeping you happy, because it’s 50/50 in the relationship. Basically, you both should work toward keeping each other happy and the relationship can stay in a good place.
