Love is an emotion that is so subjective and can be interpreted differently by different people. It can not be quantified. It's not a tangible thing that you can measure and quantify because love doesn't work like that. So, guys, it's time to take charge of your happiness and be open to the idea that it might not be with the same person as your friends or family. You need to think about what you want, what you need and how to find it for yourself. Here I have tried to put few things together, which I think make my husband happy. Please feel free to add to it in the comments.
If you like to read books, you must add this to your bucket list. What Makes a Man Feel Loved: Understanding What Your Husband Really Wants
Feed Him Well
There is probably a no better way to your husband's heart than through his stomach. Being a diverse culture, there are many different types of food out there and no right or wrong answer to what your man's favourite is. Cook some nice dishes for him, keep in mind this is what he cherishes. However, we have also found that most men are happiest when they are in control of the menu and they are able to cook for their family (if they r into it).
Be Your Best
The most important person in your life should be YOU. By putting yourself first, you are showing your man how much you love and care for him. Make time for a healthy diet, exercising, and taking care of your appearance. This will ensure that you feel great inside and out!. Being a healthy wife and being friends with her goes a long way in making the husband feel loved.
Be smart, save more. As more women have entered the workforce, many are in dual-income households. As such, it's important to be savvier about money, whether you are both the breadwinners or just one of you. Be smart. Save more. And always express appreciation often to your husband for all he does to help provide for the family and keep things running smoothly around the house.
Appreciate Your Husband
Usually, the man is the head of the household, whether he likes it or not. In fact, the man is so strong that his power is actually given to him by his woman. The man's power is not only in his physical strength but in his emotional strength as well. Don't talk bad about your Husband. Ever. Be loyal to your man in every way.
Always give your compliments in front of others to make sure he knows how good a husband, provider and man you think he is. Praise him in front of his friends and family to let them know that he's your superhero too, but don't do it as often as you would with cheesy things like complimenting him constantly or telling everyone how much you love him.
Tell him often how handsome he is. Comment on his shirts, his smile or other features you love about him. Make sure he knows that you still find him sexy and desirable, even if you're not in a relationship as yet (prospective husband).
Hugs That Are Uncalled For
Hug your man often. Some kisses that are uncalled for, you may run your fingers through his hair sometimes. Husbands adore affection just as much as we do.
Initiate acts of intimacy more often. Be playful and romantic in the bedroom. Show him you want and need him as much as he wants and needs you.
Doing Things Together
It's no secret that many couples in long-term relationships are guilty of letting their spouse's hobbies and interests fade into the background. This is often because the partner with less enthusiasm has had to put more time and energy into their hobby for it to thrive. Make genuine efforts to join in your husband's hobbies for the sake of doing things together.I won't say that you can't have your own interests, but there are definitely ways to show love for your partner by showing interest in the things he loves.
Apology When Needed
Be quick to say sorry. Do it. When you realise that you've done or said anything that hurt his feelings, your ability to quickly ask for your husband's forgiveness will help him feel loved and respected. Be humble and just say those two little words “I'm sorry”
Some Us Time
Suggest an intimate day with him that he will love. Choose a breakfast date or let him sleep in, enjoy a massage and breakfast in bed. Create the perfect day for just the two of you and he will be blown away by your effort. If you want to try something outside of the box, how about booking a couple's getaway for a change?
Husband's Me Time
Let him have some me time even if he's not insisting on it. Maybe he just needs some time to work on the car, play his favourite video game, or lift weights at the gym with his buddies. If your man needs time to himself, let him take it. You may even want to plan a “day away” for him from time to time, giving him opportunities for rest and renewal so he can continue being productive at work.
Be appreciative and thankful when you find him doing something good. Nagging never works, so make sure you catch him doing good. I love how thoughtful you are and I appreciate your help. Thank you so much for taking out the garbage. You are truly the best dad to our kids and I feel lucky every day to be your wife
Send him a surprise text, write an email or letter, leave him a note etc. Men who are on the receiving end of love texts/emails often appreciate well with reciprocation. He needs to know that you are thinking about him and care about what he is doing, even though his work-life might seem overwhelming.
Surprise your partner with that gadget he's been wanting forever. Or, if he prefers gifts in a more traditional sense, pick something up for him. Maybe you could clean his car & fill it with gas or iron his shirt for him. You could also mow their lawn for them if they're too busy/lazy to do it over the weekend as his task. You want him to know that you care and it's important to you, so let him know about your feelings in a way that pleases him.
Feed His Ego
It would be wise to show your husband how much you love him by taking his advice and then thanking him for it later. He'll really appreciate it, and feel more confident in giving you sincere advice because he'll know you really care about what he thinks and feels. Guys are often really good at solving problems and overcoming challenges. They can generally provide wise insight into how to get the job done. It is not a bad idea to have a love book if you are a bit creative.
