Many wives want their husbands to lavish them with sweet words and compliments while often forgetting to reciprocate the affection back to their husbands. Although most men may not want the same amount of affection, they still want to feel loved too! Practice showing your man you love him by making the effort to him these little things regularly. They will make him feel great and he will be more inclined to reciprocate the appreciation and affection.
“I Love You”
Life sometimes gets busy and we often forget to tell our partners the simplest thing – that we actually love them. So remember to make the effort and say I love you at least once a day.
“Thank you so much for all of your hard work.”
We know that both wives and husbands work hard, and we tend to take the little things that our husband do for granted. So if you notice that they do something that is above and beyond, and put lots of effort into something, make sure you thank them for the effort.
“You are such a wonderful husband.”
“You look hot today.”
We all appreciate a compliment. Part of a relationship is appreciating our partner in a physical sense. So if you see him making an effort to look nice, make sure you tell him he is looking good.
“That’s a great idea!”
“I’m such a lucky woman because I have you.”
“I’m proud of you.”
Telling someone you are proud of them helps build trust, loyalty and respect.
The typical joke is that the woman is always right. However, we all know that isn’t correct all the time! Acknowledging when the other person is right, especially after a misunderstanding or miscommunication demonstrates that you are willing to compromise and respect the other person’s opinion and beliefs.
