Now this is a question I have long struggled to answer, but one thing is certain; every man desires appreciation. How and what exactly makes him feel appreciated is the question.
Sadly what makes me feel on top of the world and makes my world go round may not necessarily move him an inch. Unlike women who are often quite emotional beings where the smallest of gestures may make us weak in the knees, then falling head over heels in love, I must say, it may be hard to please him. Is it possible to get him to that soft aaaawwwww moment? I believe it is.
They say women feel appreciated through love and men through respect. This I believe, comes at the top of the league before anything else.
Is it your cooking that makes him tick? Then please get down and prepare that dish. After all, they said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.Does quality time make him feel loved and appreciated? If so, set good time together, plan something, go out and enjoy good company with one another. Is he the kind of person who loves service? If so, go and tidy up or do an errand for him, it works. Does he appreciate gifts? If so then There is that watch or shirt he admires. If you can afford to, go ahead and get him that.
I think the list is endless and I cannot tell much about your man only you know him better. Be that observant partner/spouse and know what makes him feel loved and appreciated. If this is limited because of funds or other challenges, then look for alternatives on your budget. How about something homemade? He will also appreciate this and more important, communicate with him. Let him know regularly that you appreciate him. To get a Male Perspective on this topic, click HERE to read Mitch’s post.
