You know the saying: “It’s the little things that counts.” Well, it’s true! Think about it ladies: How often do you spoil your man or just do as he asks?
Whether it’s fluffing a pillow, passing the remote or maintaining a tidy home, it can’t hurt to cater to him a little. It might even encourage him to step his game up. One of the keys to making a relationship work is keeping the element of surprise alive; have fun and be creative. These types of things are reciprocal.
Don’t wait for your guy wine and dine you or splurge a little here and there. Switch it up Vixens!
Here are five ways to show him you care:
1. Take Him to See A Movie
What guy didn’t want to see Colombiana? You’ve got to admit, Zoe Saldana is hot. Show him you’re not intimidated and plan a date to see a movie you know he’ll like! Hot chicks or action; absolutely no chick flicks (this time, at least). Without telling him, scoop him up, pay (yes, pay!), share some popcorn and enjoy the bonding.
2. Breakfast in Bed
Whoever claimed that the key to man’s heart was through his stomach wasn’t lying. What better way to show your affection than by surprising him with his favorite foods and favorite girl in the morning. Help start his day off right. Wake up an hour earlier before he does and prepare a meal that will last him through lunch. Have it ready for him as soon as his alarm goes off.
3. Limit Your “Checkups”
Guys hate when you constantly check up on them. Let him live and allow him to open up about his day when he’s home or ready share. Instead of calling and texting your man all day, send a more subtle message. A midday smiley face text message will suffice. It just lets him know he’s on your mind. Random texts are great too. Share humor you came across at work. Returning home, ask about his day after he winds down.
4. Let Him Watch His Sports
Don’t change the channel, don’t block the TV, don’t start conversation that doesn’t have anything to do with sports, that is, unless your bringing out some snacks. If you’re not too sure about how the game of basketball or football works, ask before or after the game or during commercials. Don’t make him miss a play trying to explain. We do encourage learning though. Not many guys can kick back with their girl, laugh and yell at faulty plays together. It’s cute. He’ll appreciate your effort nonetheless. You may want to even try taking him to a professional sports game.
5. Keep Him Fresh
Every guy has a “thing.” You know, sneakers, watches, sunglasses, etc. Pay close attention to what he collects or what trends he follows. With this acquired knowledge, cop something to add to his collection. Look up release dates of new items and order one ahead. He won’t be expecting it, and that’s the best part. If it’s something like those Foamposites that have sneakerheads going crazy, he’ll be ecstatic that you took the time out to do your research and camp out for something of his liking.
6. Become His Fantasy
Simple one here. Play around, be aggressive while submissive, give him a massage, dress up in his favorite outfit of yours, and engage in whatever he likes. Sex sells, ladies. Beyoncé said it best, “If I put it on him, there ain’t nothing that I can’t do.”
