Your man wants to be praised and acknowledged, and yet no man will ask for this or rarely ask for but yet crave the most. It’s praise and acknowledgement to know that we’re doing a good job as your man so it can be something as simple as just a favor that he does for you and you say: Hey babe! Thank you so much for bringing the food home today. I really appreciate that.
Or you can praise him for an everyday common experience like giving you a hug. So the next time he gives you a hug, whisper in his ear and say you give the best hugs in the world. You will see him literally feel better about himself because a man’s sense of self expands under the light of your praise.
He wants you to encourage him to adventure. We are often conditioned to believe that women want way more time together then we want. You want your independence just as much as he does. You want your time or time with the girlfriend just as much as he does.
Men are often conditioned to believe that if we ask for time away than that, you’re gonna get your feelings hurt. So when you actually encourage him to go adventure in his life to go get some guy time or to go do something that he loves, he is going to love that.
So you could simply say: I’ve got Sunday brunch with my girlfriends this Sunday. Why don’t you go and create a boys day? He’s going to love that and that type of freedom actually creates a desire to invest more time with you.
