As men are different, so are their wants and desires. The kind of affection one man will appreciate may be disregarded by another. So, it can be somewhat hard to show love to your boyfriend since you may not be aware to what they’ll appreciate.
However, there are general ways you can reconnoiter on how to show love to your boyfriend.
How to Tell Your Boyfriend You Love Him
Spell it out
You can show your boyfriend how much you love him by boldly putting it in a written form. Spell out your love for him either in a letter, email, or text message a few times per day. However, avoid overdoing it or you’ll just seem weird.
You should know something he loves, do it
If you have been dating for a while, at least you should know things he loves. You can further buttress your love for him not just in a written form, but by acting on it. You can arrange to do one of his best hobbies or anything he really loves to do but haven’t been able to do due to some reasons. Preferably, it could be an activity that both of you can partake in. If it is something you derive no fun from, then you can arrange with his friends who also love such hobby and make it a surprise.
Hug and Kiss him when he least expects it
Hugs, pecks, and unexpected kisses goes a long way to prove your undying love for your boyfriend. You can sneak in a quick peck or kiss when he is sitting with his laptop, watching the TV, or doing some other activity. For more effect, make it at a time when he least expects.
Cook his favorite meals
Cooking your boyfriend’s favorite meals may seem so simple, but it is a direct and effective display of love and affection you feel for your boyfriend. You could quickly prepare and pack a lunch for him when he’s embarking on a trip. He’ll greatly appreciate it. It’s also a guaranteed way to remind him about you, particularly when you’re not there. You don’t have to be too elaborate in preparing his meals, just a simple food will do. Don’t forget, ‘The fastest way to a man’s heart is his stomach,’ just as the saying goes.
Be His BFF
There are so many things you can do to be his best friend. He should be able to listen attentively when he expresses himself. He should be able to confide in you. You should be nearby when he is overwhelmed by emotions. You should help him, trust him, believe in him and his dreams, the list is endless. Doing these things will make him feel loved, understood, appreciated and important other.
Compliment him sincerely
Learn to compliment him sincerely. Appreciate the way he smiles or walks. Appreciate the way he makes you feel so special above everyone else. Throw in a “I love you” occasionally to express your admiration for him. If you love the smell of his perfume, tell him. If you love his new haircut, don’t hesitate to tell him. Always compliment him, and ensure it is a sincere compliment.
Allow Him Vent
Venting entails discarding your emotions or sentiments just as a release. Men love unloading about some challenging situations they are facing to their significant other. Let you boyfriend vent out his anger, stress, and frustration. You may not be able to totally solve his problem, but you can put in a word or two that will be helpful to the condition he is facing. You can say, “Don’t worry sweetheart, everything’s going to be okay.”
Be full of fun
Whether you guys are just starting out or you’ve been together a long time, try going on fun dates together. Ensure your boyfriend gets your full attention when on dates or vacations. Treat every date with him as a first date and he’ll love you more. Make every time you spend together a memorable one. Couples who have been together for years may not be as playful as they used to. Don’t allow this to be the case, think back on how you used to spend your early days together, and try replicating those times.
Give Him Gifts
Appreciate your boyfriend with gifts on occasional basis. It doesn’t have to be something expensive, at least it should be something you can comfortably afford. It should also be something he would love, or something he wants but won’t get for himself. You can give him a gift that represents him or a part of his character. It can even be tickets to events he had always wanted to attend.
Allow him take charge
Allow your boyfriend be in control and take charge of the relationship. It gives him a sense of complete machismo. A simple gesture of handing over the TV’s remote to him may not seem so simple, particularly when your favorite show is ongoing. Allowing him to take control at that times shows to him just how much you value him. He’ll be sure to reciprocate the gestures.
Allow him hang out with friends
No matter how much your boyfriend loves and cherishes your company, he’ll also want to hang out with his buddies. You don’t have to be overly insecure, it would just put him off. As his girlfriend, you have to support his friendship, get to know his friends too. It is easy for you to learn a lot about your boyfriend through the type of friends he keeps.
Plan a Surprise for Him
You can plan a surprise for your boyfriend using what he is always talking about. It could be a romantic vacation, family party, golf trip, or even a surprise birthday party when he least expects it. Your boyfriend will truly value you when he sees how much time and effort you’ve invested in seeing that surprise become a reality.
The bottom line
Everyone expresses the love they feel for their significant other differently. Try a few diverse approaches of expressing your love to your boyfriend and see which ones he responds to the most.
You can compliment his abilities or qualities, listen when he talks about his day at work, and tell him sincerely how much you love him. Another way to know how to show your boyfriend love is to think of all the nice things he has done for you. Reminiscing on all those things will give you a clue on how to express love to your boyfriend and have him reciprocate your love.
Though you can express love to your boyfriend in many ways, but in case of intimacy, if you are not ready for it, you don’t have to indulge in it just to show him love. It has to come from your heart because it is an unfathomable way of displaying love, but it shouldn’t be forced or cajoled act.
