10 Tips on how to make your man happy
Now you have that found that special man, how do you keep him happy? We’re not saying that men are high maintenance, but you do need to be aware that men think differently from women and, despite rumours to the contrary, they do need more, than a healthy love life to keep them happy. So, if you are looking for long term bliss, then read these 10 tips on how to make your man happy and keep him around:
1. Don’t nag him
Our first tip on how to make your man happy is – do not nag him. Men let nagging go in one ear and out the other, but they do take notice of it. If you want to drive your man out of your life, then nagging is a guaranteed way to make him unhappy. If you want him to listen, then explain your concerns, logically and, hopefully, he will happily try and comply.
2. Listen to him when he needs your help
Men don’t open up easily, so when he does let you know that he needs your advice or assistance, it must be important. Be there for him when he needs to talk about something, if it wouldn’t be important, he wouldn’t be asking for your advice.
3. Show your affection
Another good tip on how to make your man happy is to show your affection. This is easily overlooked, but still so very important. Showing your affection makes him feel comfortable and wanted. Just the small things, like holding his hand, while walking or resting your head on his shoulder. Men are actually quite insecure, underneath all their ‘machismo’ and a few simple affirmations of your love will mean a lot to him.
4. Give him a boost
Men like compliments too, so don’t forget to tell him when he’s made an effort to look good for you. You can boost his self-esteem by noticing the effort and he will be beaming with pride that you did notice and he will be more inclined to try harder next time!
5. Fight fair
You know that you have secret weapons that you can use in a fight, but that doesn’t mean that you should. Be fair when you fight and don’t stoop to low insults. They will hurt a man more than you realise and it’s unfair, because men aren’t very good at fighting in that way.
6. Take care with your appearance
It’s shallow, it shouldn’t matter and he should love for your personality, but the reality is that making an effort to look nice for him will keep him happy. You don’t have to look like a steaming temptress every day of the week, but letting things go completely will make him think that you no longer care.
7. Be his best friend
Being a good friend to your man is as important to him, as being his lover. Being trustworthy and reliable are traits that he will really value, and these are more important to him than anything else that you have to offer.
8. Show your appreciation
Another tip on how to make your man happy is to show him that you appreciate the things he does and don’t let him think that you take him for granted. Men thrive on pats on the back and your appreciation and thanks will be prized above the same from anyone else.
9. Give him some space
Let him be a man, he needs it to be happy. He will want to go out with friends sometimes and do manly things. Give him the space to do so or he will feel trapped and unhappy. Men need to assert their masculinity sometimes, just as much as you need to do girly things.
10. Surprise him sometimes
You don’t need to always wait for your man to take initiative, sometimes you can do it yourself. Treat him sometimes to special gifts or surprise night outs. Keeping the relationship interesting will help to keep him happy and interested. Boredom is one of the biggest killers of relationship, so it’s the little surprise things that you do for him that will keep your relationship fresh and special.
