10 Tips on how to make your boyfriend smile
Hey, guess what? Your boyfriend loves to smile!
I know it doesn’t seem like it. After all, there he is, grunting away as he plays his video games, shooting bad guys to bits and getting, like, really annoyed every time you walk in front of the TV to go to the bathroom.
And don’t even get me started on the scowl he gives you when you ask him who is playing in red, whenever he’s trying to watch a game of football.
And the mood he gets into when his sports team loses? Nightmare! Anyone would think sport was a matter of life and death!
But deep down inside, guys have this secret – they actually love to smile! They’re just waiting for a reason to do so! So let’s take a look at 10 nice things you can do for your boyfriend to make him smile. Aww!
1. Give Him His Space
Yes, I know that you want to spend every waking hour with your boyfriend. But it just isn’t possible. As much as he loves you, he does need his own space.
So while it’s cute for you to pick up a pad and start playing with him on his XBOX, it’s only cute at first. Eventually, he will want to do it alone, exploding baddies and killing everyone he comes across without having to deal with your character dying every 5 seconds.
Moreover, guys like to hang out with their guy friends. They like to do guy stuff. To keep him smiling, you could do a lot worse than tell him he can have his “guy day” today.
2. Look Good For Him
We know how it goes. After you’ve been together with someone for a few months, you can start to loosen up with your behaviour and the way you dress.
This means you start dressing down. Gone are the dresses to impress on a first date, and instead you enjoy lazing around the house in your slacks. But every now and then, you should definitely try to look good for him, as this will make him smile. Dress up, show him your curves, and make him feel all hot and bothered. He’ll appreciate it!
3. Get Along With His Friends
Guys get really disheartened when their girlfriend doesn’t get along with their mates. They want nothing more than for you to be able to banter with their friends, spending time with them and getting to know them. If you don’t get along, it means he has to tread on eggshells around you and his friends. It means he has to arrange separate nights to see you and them. In short, it creates problems.
To make him smile, make the effort to get along with his buddies. Chat to them, get to know them, and ensure a relaxed, easygoing experience. He’ll definitely thank you for it.
4. Get Him A Friday Night Treat
This is another great tip on how to make your boyfriend smile.
It’s Friday night and you’re both ready to wind down after a long week at work. You don’t want to cook, he definitely doesn’t want to cook, and you’ve not really got anything planned.
Because guys like their treats as much as we do, and because guys like having something to look forward to, make him smile this Friday night be buying a pizza, a lotto ticket and renting a movie. Think of it like date night after a hectic week of work. The pizza will satisfy his appetite, the lotto ticket will allow him to dream for a few moments that he will be on a yacht this time next week, and the movie will allow him to enjoy some time with you in his arms.
5. Be Happy
No one likes downers who can’t see the positive in anything. If he suggests a million restaurants to eat at, only for you to turn them down because you don’t like the look of them, he’s going to feel pretty frustrated.
If you smile for him, he will smile back. Guys feel so much happier when their partners are happy too.
6. Wash His Sheets
Guys will probably admit that, deep down, they actually don’t enjoy sleeping in unclean sheets. But usually they’re just a bit too lazy to both washing them and sorting out the mess. So instead they convince us – and themselves – that they actually enjoy snoozing in dust and dirt that has been building for years.
It will be a lovely surprise for him if you wash his sheets while he’s at work. Just the feeling of lying down on nice smelling sheets will be enough to brighten his day and get him smiling from ear to ear.
7. Buy Him A Book
He doesn’t have to be a voracious reader for you to buy him a book. All guys love magazines – from sports mags to lads mags – so why not go further and buy him a book about something he’s really interested in?
This could be a book about cars, movies, art, or even something more technical, such as engineering.
8. Let Him Have Some Alone Time With You
If you’ve got a really busy schedule, you might not be able to find a lot of time to spend alone with your boyfriend. This is pretty much why the concept of date night was invented; it allows busy spouses in 2015 the chance to actually spend at least one night of the week together!
Your man needs this alone time with you, as much as you need it. So make him smile by clearing your schedule and turning your phone off. Give him the attention he deserves.
9. Pack Him A Lunch
Another great tip on how to make your boyfriend smile is to pack him a lunch. Guys love their food. This is a scientifically verified fact.
They also love it when you take the time to pack their lunch for them. It not only shows that you care about them, but if you pack it with their favourite grub they’re going to be happiest man alive.
There is nothing more disheartening than an awful, tepid canteen meal at work. Make him smile by giving him an edible treat to look forward to.
10. Call Him Before Bed
If you don’t live together, why not give him a call just before you sleep? It will remind him that you’re thinking about him and missing him, and just hearing your voice will make sure that he goes to bed that night feeling a whole lot more loved.
