To most women, men are these confusing things that despite our best effort, we’ll never truly understand. But as much as they drive us crazy, we still love them and yes, we also want to know some things we can do to make them happy.
So what can you do to keep your husband (or boyfriend) happy?
First remember that despite how confident your man may seem, he too has his own insecurities, and it’s always a good idea to help him boost his confidence on occasion by telling him just how amazing he really is. Men need your appreciation and approval and getting this positive feedback from you can go a long way in helping keep your man happy!
The next biggest thing you can do is to have a life! I know that sounds crazy but it’s true. Everyone needs some alone time and if you aren’t 100% dependant on him all the time, then he feels less pressure. If he knows you are happy with your own friends, going out with the girls, doing things without him, that will make him happy.
“You are my world” may sound sweet to you, but you’d be surprised just how much that very statement scares the living heck out of a man. That’s a lot of pressure you are putting on him. Instead, show him that you are a whole person with and without him. If you don’t have a lot of girlfriends to go out with every once in a while then do things like take cooking classes, learn a foreign language, join a book club or a bowling league. I think you’ll find that if you do these things, not only will you make him happy but you’ll be happier as well.
The last bit of advice I can give you is to put your phone down. When you two are having a meal together, be there – be in the moment and you can’t do that with your face in your phone. Sure, he might do it too sometimes but if you make more of an effort to fully be there during the meal, he will too. The time you two spend eating should be about the two of you, a real moment in your life when you can connect, and above all really communicate. This is the time you should be listening to him talk about his day or problems he has at work and the same for you. This could very well be the most important than you do for your relationship.
