How to Show Your Boyfriend that You Love Him

Do You Really Show Proper Appreciation?

He massages your shoulders when you are tired, he makes you a delicious meal, he picks you up from work, he tells you that you look beautiful and he is always there for you when you need him.

He accepts your flaws, celebrates your achievements and encourages you to be the best you can be.

Your boyfriend is a great guy, but how often do you let him know that you appreciate him?

Traditionally, it is the guy in the relationship who is supposed to woo the girl by giving her gifts and singing her praises. However, why can’t it also be the other way around?

Guys also need to feel like they are appreciated and loved, even if they might pretend not to care about that “sentimental stuff”. So what can you do to let your boyfriend know that you are happy to have him in your life?

 

Here are a few ideas of how you can do something extra special for your boyfriend to show him that you really care about him:

Make Him a Nice Meal

The old saying goes that the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and there is certainly some truth to this.

What man could resist a delicious home cooked meal of his favourite food, prepared by his loving girlfriend?

Make it extra special by buying a few nicer ingredients than you normally do or cracking open a nice bottle of wine.

 

Praise Him Like He Deserves

If your boyfriend does something right, don’t hesitate to tell him how much you appreciate it.

He needs to know and it will give his ego a wonderful boost. Whenever he does you a favour, make sure to give him a heartfelt thank you.

It is also important to speak highly of your boyfriend to others.

If he hears you complaining to everyone else about his bad habits this will feel terrible and make him think you resent him. Instead, say positive things about what he does well and why are you so glad to have him in your life.

 

Treat Him to a Lovely Gift

Whether it is Valentine’s Day, your Anniversary or just because, why not treat your boyfriend to a kind and thoughtful gift?

It’s doesn’t have to be big or expensive, just something nice that made you think of him and that you thought he would like. T

he fact that you took the time to get him something special will show that he is on your mind and that you want him to be happy.

The Internet is a great place to find valentine gifts for him, or gifts for any occasion.

There are a number of different sweet and thoughtful gifts that you can buy, depending on his interests.

You can order Christmas, birthday, anniversary or valentine gifts for him and have them delivered right to your door.

 

Dress to Impress

Remember when you were first flirting with or starting to date your boyfriend and you really cared about how you looked around him?

You wore your best outfit when you knew you would see him and always put effort into your hair and make-up.

Sometimes in a long term relationship we get comfortable and get a little bit lazy with our appearance.

It’s only natural and it’s not a big deal, but if you really want to impress him you can swap the comfy jeans for a pretty dress, do your hair and make-up and go out for a drink with him.

You will wow him with your beauty and he will see that you still care enough to look good for him.

 

Listen to Him

You probably talk to your boyfriend all the time, but when is the last time that you let him have the spotlight and you just sat back and listened?

Often in conversations we are so eager to get our point across that we fail to really take in what the other person is saying.

Take some time to sit with your boyfriend and simply let him talk about anything he wants, listening and sympathising with his thoughts and feelings.

Whether it is buying valentine gifts for him or simply taking the time to listen, these are just a few ways that you can show your boyfriend you love him

    Lovely gestures indeed.
    I completely agree that girls do not give opportunity to their partner to talk and express views in any conversation . Hence giving them a chance to speak their heart out once in while will make the male counterpart feel special and honored .

    Lovely reciprocating! I actually do these things with my significant other and believe it or not, men actyally love being pampered. Not necessarily pampered like they’re in the spa, but showering them with simple things that show how much you love them.

      Oh no!! Veronica, you’ve discovered a well hidden male trait! Shame :)
      Yeah, have to admit it but guys really are like gals in a lot of ways. I think everyone likes a bit of pampering, every now and then. It’s just a nice way to show that you care about one another. It’s the little things in life that are often the best, wouldn’t you agree?
