Little Things You Can Do to Keep Your Man Happy

Last week, we talked about all the little things men can do to make their woman happy. This time, we’ll see what women can do for their men. Some of these things will be similar. After all, we all want to feel loved and appreciated. However, men and women sometimes need different things, so there are varied approaches to how to make your man happy as the opposite of how to make a woman happy.

While every man is an individual, with his unique needs and preferences, there are some things most men want to feel happy in a relationship. It’s important to understand what these things are in order to make your man happy to the fullest.

Here are some of the most essential things:

  • Men want to feel appreciated.
  • Men want to feel respected.
  • Men want to feel like men.

What all men also want is to feel loved, but the trick to do it is in the above three things: appreciation, respect and making him feel like a real man. Obviously, these are just basics and they will depend on every individual man. However, it’s important to keep these things in mind if you want to make him happy to the fullest.

What does it mean, in practice? Let your man know how much you respect him and how much you appreciate him. Listen to him and let him know his opinion is important to you. Make him feel validated as an individual. When it comes to making a man fill like a man, again, it depends on each couple to decide. It doesn’t mean you have to pretend you are helpless and vulnerable just to make him feel like a protector if this is not who you are, but it’s important to show him that you value him and that he has a lot to offer, both as a man and an individual.

CleaningShould I Give More?

Some women feel that keeping their man happy is all about giving. They will cook and clean for him and take care of him the way a mother would. While there’s nothing wrong about pampering your man and showing him your love through delicious meals, it’s important to know that these things should sometimes stay in the background. You don’t need (nor want to) treat him like a mother would to keep him happy – in fact, this approach can turn to be counter-productive if this is all you show to him.

The thing is, the happier you are in a relationship, the happier your man will be. Instead of focusing all of your energy on what to give to him or how to pamper him to show your love, focus some of the energy into other aspects of your relationship. The happier and more relaxed you are, the happier your man will be because he will know you two can make each other happy.

This is why showing respect and appreciation is so important. Men want to know they are valued and needed. In order to achieve this, you do not need to focus on pampering him every day – though if this is something you both enjoy, go for it. What you need to remember is to let him know how respected and valued he is and how much you appreciate him in your life.

What about Sex?romance

Ah, sex. Whenever we talk about “keeping a man happy”, this is usually the first thing on people’s minds. In reality, it all depends on the couple in question. Some people focus a lot on sex while others decide to express physical intimacy only in marriage. Therefore, it all depends on your unique circumstances. When it comes to sex, though, most men agree that it’s not so difficult to keep them happy in this department – as long as you’re enthusiastic and show that you really want to be intimate with him.

Little Things to Do

Here is a list of some little things you can do to make him happy:

  • Make him your protector. A modern woman prides herself in being able to do anything. We are not scared of bugs and we can open jars on our own. That being said, there is so much your man can do to keep you safe and protected. For example, you may want to ask him to walk you to your car late at night. There is a very real risk and there is nothing bad about wanting him by your side. It will also make him feel like a real man. Or you may ask him to do a task that’s physically difficult for you. Small things like this will make him feel masculine and like a true protector.
  • Praise him. Men like to know they are appreciated, and they usually don’t receive as many compliments as women do. So, change this. Whenever he does something that makes you happy, let him know. Compliment him for his achievements. You may even compliment him for his looks from time to time. It will make him feel loved and appreciated.
  • Listen to him. In order to make him respected, you need to show your man you are interested in what he has to say. So, listen to him. Do not make him feel like you are not appreciating his opinions or his stories. He is sharing something with you, so show your respect for what he has to say. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with everything he says but it’s important to show him you do listen and that you are interested in what he has to say.
  • Your ManPamper him from time to time. Remember when we said you should not focus all of your energy in a relationship on pampering your man? Well, do not go the opposite direction. You should do some nice, little things to show your appreciation. Surprise him from time to time. If you know your man, you know what he likes, so don’t be afraid to give it to him. Your effort will be much appreciated.
  • Give him space. It’s important to let your man breathe. Do not follow his every move and do not insist on going everywhere with him or spending every single second with him. As much as he loves you, there are other things in life and you should show you like when he engages in his other interests. Do not be possessive or paranoid about his whereabouts. Show him that you trust him and give him space. He will appreciate it.
