13 gestures that make men feel loved

Are you fulfilling his needs?
  • He knows you love him and we don't mean to insult his memory, but your man needs to be reminded of that fact - every day. So, here are a few things you can do to ensure your man knows you love him, day after day:

  • 1. Take care of yourself

  • If you're not healthy and happy on your own, you're not going to be a healthy and happy wife. Make sure you care for your own needs so you will be able to give your husband the love and support.

  • 2. Make an inside joke

  • There is something so fun and intimate about an inside joke; he'll feel loved all over the place.

  • 3. Stroke his ego

  • Seriously, a sincere compliment works wonders on a man. Tell him you're crazy about his eyes or that you love how he has a good attitude about everything. If you think he's great, make sure he knows it.

  • 4. Kiss him (lots and lots)

  • Nothing makes him feel more adored and loved like a kiss.

  • 5. Pick up one of his hobbies

  • Even if he's all about dancing and you have two left feet, or he's crazy about cars and you could care less, pick one of his hobbies and make it yours. It might not be your favorite activity, but if you do something simply because he likes it, he'll recognize it as a gesture of love.

  • 6. Take him on a date

  • Who says the guys have to do all the planning and asking out? Take your man out for a special night and he'll feel as loved as can be.

  • 7. Ask for his advice

  • Give him the opportunity to solve a problem and make difference in your life and he'll feel especially appreciated. (Bonus points for following his advice.)

  • 8. Give him a massage

  • This one's pretty obvious. But do you know what's better than you giving him a massage? Booking him a professional massage.

  • 9. Support him

  • He just wants to know that you're there for him no matter what. Express your confidence in his abilities and offer any help you can provide.

  • 10. Find out his love language

  • If you want to cut straight to the core of what speaks the most love to your man, learn his love language. People feel and express love in different ways, so understanding his love language will help you shower him with all the acts of service, gifts, physical touch, words of affirmation or quality time he's craving.

  • 11. Flirt with him in front of other people

  • Sure, don't go all PDA crazy, but he kind of loves it when other people see you flirting with him.

  • 12. Make his favorite food

  • Have you ever heard that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach? While this may bring up some questions about basic anatomy, there is truth to this phrase.

  • 13. Give him a break

  • Honestly, we all want to feel rewarded for our hard work. Recognize all the stressors in his life and give him the opportunity to rest. For example, let him relax at Island Spa and Sauna where 39 dollars gets him a whole day of wonderful relaxation and your undivided love and attention.
