Making a new boyfriend feel loved can sometimes be hard, especially if you’ve just started dating. But don’t worry, I’m going to share with you 68 meaningful ways on how to make a man feel loved.
1.Say “thank you.”
When your guy does something for you, don’t be afraid to say thank you. This doesn’t mean that you should say it over and over again like a parrot, but whenever he does something that you really appreciate, let him know that you’re grateful.
2.Cook for him.
Cooking for your man may be one of the most romantic gestures you can make. It shows that you have not only taken time out of your day to prepare a delicious meal but also that you are happy to do so. Cooking is one of the best ways to show your love for another person. A large part of this is because it is such a basic human need; we all must eat to survive and there is something very intimate about sharing food with someone else.
It doesn’t matter if you’re making a quick sandwich or preparing an elaborate meal; what matters most is that he knows that you care enough about him to take time out of your busy schedule just so he can enjoy his favorite meal.
It’s also important to realize that men don’t always want their significant other cooking for them every day – they will appreciate it occasionally but they would prefer if it was just on special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries!
If cooking isn’t something you’re good at then try buying pre-made meals from grocery stores instead – this way, when he gets home after work, there’s already some food waiting in the fridge for him so he doesn’t
3.Write a note expressing your appreciation.
Men love to be appreciated for just being themselves and going about their everyday business. It makes them feel loved and happy.
For example, you could write a note saying:
“I’m so glad you’re here in my life. You’re such a blessing to me. I love you so much.”
Or, if he has a job interview or exam coming up, try: “You’re going to be awesome at the interview/exam! I’m really proud of you.”
If he doesn’t like writing, try drawing him a picture or giving him words of encouragement verbally.
4.Remind him of the ways that he has changed your life for the better.
Express your love and make him feel loved by telling him how much he means to you. If a man knows that the woman in his life is head over heels for him, it’ll make him feel good about himself and his relationship. Saying “I love you” is one way of doing this, but there are many others, like saying something like, “You’re my best friend,” or “I’ve never felt this way about anyone before.”
Think about the ways that you’ve changed since meeting your boyfriend. Maybe you’re happier or more confident. Maybe your life has improved in some way since you started dating your boyfriend. These are all things that he’s responsible for! You might say something like, “Before we started dating, I wasn’t very confident, but now I am.” Or, “I’m so glad that I met you because now I have the courage to apply for this job. You’ve really helped me grow as a person.”
When you’re talking to your boyfriend, give him your full attention. Turn off the TV and put down your phone! If you’re focused on something else while he’s talking to you, your boyfriend will think that he’s not important enough to deserve all of your attention.
5.Give him space to spend time on his own or with friends.
You might think you have to show love by spending a lot of time with your man. But if you’re always there and always available, he might actually feel trapped and that you’re crowding him.
Give him space to spend time on his own or with friends.
Similarly, if you constantly send him text messages during the day, he might feel as though you’re checking up on him. If he’s out somewhere without his phone, he won’t be able to respond, and he might start to worry that something is wrong.
If you really want your man to know how much you love him, try not to communicate with him for a day or two. Doing this will make your relationship more interesting and exciting.
6.Surprise him with a gift that reminds you of a shared memory or experience.
Choose something that reminds you of your first date or a hobby you both enjoy doing together. For example, if you went to a concert on your first date and he mentioned how much he liked the band’s T-shirt, you could buy him one (or order it online). Or if he’s into golfing, buy him a few new balls or a personalized club cover.
If it seems too cheesy to get sentimental at this point in your relationship, choose something that shows him how important he is to you instead. You can make it personal by inscribing his initials or name on the gift or adding his favorite color.
7.Let him know that you trust him by giving him freedom and responsibility as a partner.
If he doesn’t want you checking his phone or email, respect his boundaries and don’t do it unless you have a very good reason to be suspicious. If he wants the freedom to hang out with friends without you, let him have that too.
If you’re in a romantic relationship and your man is upset, give him some space when he asks for it. He may just need some time alone or some time with friends instead of with you in order to work through whatever is bothering him.
Takeaway: There are many ways to make a man feel loved, depending on who he is and what kinds of experiences bring him joy.
