Women are emotional creatures, so it’s only natural that things that are most important to them are often not from the material realm, but rather deal with some spiritual values and general showcases of affection that don’t necessarily include actual presents. For instance, women like to talk about feelings.
Even if you’re not a fan of doing that, it’s still necessary to speak out what’s on your mind from time to time – it’s kind of expected of you. Here’s a list of 10 things women would like men to do without being told.
1. Give her compliments
Compliments not only make women feel better, they also boost their confidence and, eventually, make them look better than before. You can check this out yourself – when you talk about how gorgeous she looks without makeup and how you just love to spend hours with her talking, she will light up and look delighted for the rest of the day. You don’t have to be blunt about compliments, you can say nice things about anything that she does – starting with her gorgeous smile and ending with a cup of coffee she made for you or an art piece she created.
2. Remember her birthday
And other important dates as well! But her birthday should be on the top of your list because for the majority of people it’s one of the most important days of the year. If you’re bad with dates – use a reminder or a simple calendar. It doesn’t really matter what you do, buy a simple present or throw a huge party for her, your attention is a good enough present in itself. This concerns other important dates as well, like your one-year anniversary or the day you met together. Showing those signs of affection is really important!
3. Say ‘I love you’
Despite being somehow overused by mass media, those three simple words are still among the most important things a man can say to a woman. Even if you believe she already knows how you feel, it’s still important to say those words out loud. There’s a huge difference between ‘knowing’ that you love her and actually hearing you say those words. Women adore hearing men declare their feelings, it just makes them feel loved, secure, and overall good about themselves and your relationships.
4. Plan surprise dates
Most girls love surprises, especially when they come from the man in her life. A surprise date is a great way to show her that you are invested in making the relationship stronger and willing to go the extra mile for her happiness. No matter how long you two have been together, you are never too old to go out on dates. It shows that you care and also keeps that romantic spark alive for a long time.
If your girl doesn’t like surprises, involve her in planning the date. Nothing will make her happier than seeing her partner take initiative in doing something romantic and thoughtful for her. Planning regular dates should rank right at the top of a good boyfriend checklist.
5. Surprise with spa coupons
You’ve got to add pampering twice to the good boyfriend checklist because women just can’t get enough of it. If she is struggling with work issues or has had a tiff with a friend or her mother, nothing will cure her of her stresses like a good spa session.
A man who surprises her with a spa coupon when she needs it the most or just because he wants her to have a relaxing weekend is what every girl wants. There is nothing more adorable in the world! Women appreciate men who are thoughtful and subtle in showing love – especially when it involves aromatic candles and a good back massage at one of the nicest spas in the city!
Women want a man who can be highly supportive of them and their dreams. Somebody who can cheer for them the loudest when they need it the most and somebody who trusts their life plans more than anybody else.
7. BE GENEROUS
In the world of diplomacy and nonchalance with little or no regard to anyone else but oneself, a generous man is an immediate attraction. Be generous towards all around. Good girls long for good heart men. Generosity in a guy’s nature really attracts women. What women really want is a good guy, inside out. Little do girls appreciate if you treat her like a princess but treat the waiter like a servant? Mean men are not often the choices of smart women. Be kind and generous because it is an important quality not just to impress anyone but to be a good person. Humility and generosity are important virtues of a humble and noble man. It is something that surpasses even exterior looks. You might be one of the best-looking guys, but if you are not generous or mindful of other’s sentiments, it is very unlikely that the woman of your dreams will be attracted towards you.
8. NO TAKING FOR GRANTED
The real halt in a good relationship begins when one stops trying altogether. Stopping to make an attempt towards pleasing your partner is a relationship menace. You have to love and respect your partner throughout your relationship journey. You cannot take your partner for granted. The spark in your relationship needs to be alive and reignited, again and again. The real issue happens when people stop caring because you take your partner for granted. Things that women need from their boyfriend do not involve constantly saying ‘I love you’ but they need to make them feel wanted and loved. Actions speak louder than words and your relationship is what you make of it.
Girls hate being taken for granted. Some of us are really sensitive and cannot tolerate nonsense for long. So, stop repeating the same mistakes or else she might start taking some of those mistakes really seriously. Show her your genuine behaviour & then she will embrace you & offer you her whole world.
9. Mutual Respect
No woman would ever speak up about demanding respect as mutual respect should be the number one building block to a stable relationship. She deserves to be treated as your equal because she is. There can’t be any other answer on why you should respect her except this.
10. To Feel Desired
To feel desired – not just from what you say, but by what you don’t say. The way you touch her, the way you look at her, the way you hold her hand or how you listen to her. These small things make her feel close to you both physically and emotionally. That connection will go farther than compliments ever will.
11. Good Communication
There is a big difference between talking to a woman and talking with a woman. There is also a big difference between hearing her and really listening to her. Active communication is essential to the success of any relationship because that is the only way people can really open up about themselves and that determines the level of trust they have for each other. No relationship can survive without good communication.
12. To take her side, always
She might not always be right but she would expect her partner to take her side always. However, this is not something that would be out in the open, loud and clear. Unrealistic as it might sound but aren’t partners supposed to have each other’s back?
