Sometimes women inadvertently place all of the intimacy pressure on their man. Society has ingrained stereotypical relationship responsibilities on men, such as asking a woman out on a first date, making the first move, or asking the right woman to marry him.
But time, familiarity, competing priorities, and just plain selfishness can cause us to ease off of those kind gestures and settle into a status quo. When you continue to make your husband feel special you are keeping the fires burning, and keeping your love alive. He can continue to seek his affirmation through his job and personal achievements, but he really wants to hear from you and observe from your actions what you think of him.
10 ways to make your husband feel special
So here are 8 ways to make your husband feel special. Do you remember how you talked to your husband when the two of you first fell in love? Instead of waiting for him to talk to you that way again, be the initiator and re-start that loving habit. You have the ability to light up your spouse more than anyone else.
Small ways to make your partner feel loved
He really wants to know what you think of him and loves to hear you bragging to others about how attractive or kind, or talented or wise he is. Your kind, affirming words can even help soothe over a wound he may have experienced years ago from damaging words that cut into his heart and soul and shaped who he believes he is today. When you talk up your husband, you are building him up and lighting him up.
You may also be healing some parts in his or her heart that have started to close off. Every wife has expectations when she marries. And then later she either raises them, refuses to lower them, or loses them altogether.
When we expect our husbands to come through for us like God would, they will disappoint us every time. And no husband wants to disappoint his wife. Give your husband emotional space by looking to God to be your spiritual husband Isaiah By keeping realistic expectations of your husband and letting God meet your emotional needsyou are giving your husband a gift that will make him feel special.
There are days your husband does not believe he can accomplish half of what you believe he is capable of.
Treat him special by raising his confidence level with your encouraging words. Sometimes we get the idea that all our husbands do when they get home is sit in front of a television or computer. But you can treat him special by allowing him simple pleasures now and then without being judgmental about how goofy or childish they may seem to you.
Let him watch an Ace Ventura movie marathon on his day off. Encourage him to take a road trip with his best buddy to that bucket-list place that you're not sure even exists. And that will make him feel special. The more you know about your husband, the more you can connect with him and reach his heart. As wives, however, we can tend to think we know all about our husbands, and we stop investigating.
Be curious. This can give you insight as to what is meaningful or sentimental to him. And that is a wonderful way to treat him special. Does your husband know that you will extend grace to him, too?
That is what it means to love your spouse as God loves you. Your husband really wants to be your hero. He wants you to not only notice the risks or sacrifices he makes for his family, but he wants you to admire him for it, too.
Letting him know you are proud of him for certain things that he does, or simply for who he is, is not stroking his pridebuilding his ego, or making him vain. Rather, it is assuring him that his wife notices the efforts he has been making and appreciates him for it. Say it in front of your children and it will make him feel extra special. It may even build his confidence as a provider and as a man.
And it will make him feel special. And that makes him feel important to you, as well. And that is something he will see as a gift. Find those things you love about him and let him know you would still choose him today as the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. Nearly every husband knows the pain of having disappointed his wife. Our husbands are strong and protective, but they deserve to feel special too.
