5 Things He Wishes You’d Do Daily

Guys can be difficult to love. I get it—I’m a guy and I can’t imagine what my wife goes through to try and love me. For the most part, we don’t like to share our emotions, which I imagine makes it difficult to figure out how to love us and show us that you care.  

If you struggle with knowing how to best show your man that you care and that you love him, here are 5 things you can do for him every day:

Change your words of affirmation to words of admiration

Men love to be encouraged and supported, but sometimes it can come across as a bit childish. Most of us have been hearing “keep going” or that we’re “doing a great job” since we were boys. As we’ve become men, what we really desire is to make you proud. We hope to earn your respect and admiration. Find opportunities every day to tell your guy that you’re proud of him and that you love and respect who he chooses to be as a man and as your partner.

Remind him that you’re with him, no matter what

This world can be tough sometimes. We’ve all experienced it. As your man goes out to face the world each day, be intentional in reminding him that no matter what, you’ve got his back.  He needs to be reassured that your love doesn’t depend on how he provides or performs. Remind him often that your love is, has been, and always will be there—unconditionally.

Engage with him physically

Trust me: the first time he saw you, the first thing that ran through his mind was how physically gorgeous you are and how sexually attracted he was to you. It’s just the truth. Give him that physical connection every day. It certainly won’t always be sex that you’re able to give, but some sort of physical connection, like holding hands, grabbing his arm, or kissing him goodnight, will energize him and keep that feeling of romance and attraction alive.

Wish him a great day

Not every day will be a great day. In fact, some days can be pretty crappy. But the mind is a powerful tool when encouraged in a positive way. Wishing him a great day will always get his day off on the right foot. If you don’t see him before you each start your day, set yourself a reminder to send him a quick text instead.

Tell him you missed him

Quality time in your relationship or marriage is so important. It’s something your guy hopes for each and every day, but it’s just not always possible. When you’ve had long days apart, tell him that you missed him. Letting him know this can be a great emotional substitute when quality time is lacking.

Guys, what are some other things you’d love for your boo to do? Let us know in the comments!

    I’m not a guy- and my husband and I own a business together, so we are pretty much with each other 24/7.
    We’ve been working together since 1987 and married since 1989. I can personally vouch for all of these, but specifically the effect #4 (wish him a great day) can have on him.

    My husband generally leaves for work before me and several months ago I started sending him a text a few minutes after he left telling him how I was praying for him that day and that I loved him so very much with a few lovey emojis at the end. It was kind of an idea I thought would be nice to do once, but he seemed to appreciate it so much that I am still doing it daily, several months later. Plus, it reminds me to pray for him and to constantly be thinking of his needs and how I can be the best partner to him, both in life and business.

    Those 5 things are SPOT ON!! Great job! Only one thing I would change, instead of the first one being Change You Words of Affirmation to Words of Adoration, I would say Add Words of Adoration to Words of Affirmation.

    The day my wife starts to do any of these things on a consistent basis is the day I will die of a heart attack out of extreme shock and disbelief.

    My husband and I started dating when I was 19, married when I was 20, and had our son when I was 21; we will celebrate our 36th anniversary this year.
    Although the early years were tough, we would look at each other and say “you and me. “ When family or circumstances made things harder, we’d look at each other and say “ you and me”.
    When I developed a number of auto-immune diseases he has been my rock. He is my biggest blessing and I tell him so. It is so important to uplift our spouses; my man is a letter carrier and when he has had to deliver to a ‘gentlemen’s club’, he looks straight ahead drops off the mail and hotfoots it out of there. He is a diamond among men!
