    A Lot of Guys Don’t Talk about Their Feelings

    There are things men want from you but will never tell you that they do. There really isn’t an answer to why they don’t communicate their needs more clearly; it would certainly make things easier if they did. Probably, part of the reason is that they don’t think we need to be told. They really believe we know these things about them but sometimes we just don’t. So, let's get talking about some of these things.

    Mutual Respect without Ego Problems

    One thing men desperately want is respect from the woman in their life. This is one of the most important things men want from you but will never tell you. So, what does it really mean to give a guy respect? Simply put, it means that you give their thoughts, ideas, actions and feelings merit. It means that you think that he is important and you show it with your actions.

    Real Intimacy, Not Just a Fling

    Going hand in hand with respect is admiration. Guys typically love admiration, but there is a catch to this. It has to be sincere for it to work. Guys seem to have radar to catch any insincere compliment you give them. But as long as you are telling him something you genuinely appreciate about him, he will be very pleased to hear it.

    Make an Effort to Share His Interests

    Men like the companionship of the woman they care about. He might want you to accompany him to his golf game or just join him on the couch when he watches his favourite television show. The point is, he likes having you around and that is a really great thing. Sure, he needs his guy time but he likes spending time with you, too. So take advantage of that fact and find some ways you can spend more time with him.

    Look Good for Him

    Men appreciate when the woman in their life takes time to look her best. You don’t have to look like a supermodel; just dressing in the dress he likes you in is enough and you can trust that you will look great in his eyes when you do. Take a little time to apply some makeup and fix your hair before you see each other. Wear something he likes to see you in and watch when he notices the effort you made.

    To be Talked to Lovingly

    Men appreciate a pleasant tone of voice with the woman they are in a relationship with, and really, don’t we all? All of us appreciate a nice, friendly tone of voice. Of course, you won’t have a pleasant tone of voice all the time, but it is something you can try to work on. In fact, it is something that we can work on with everyone in our life. People respond much better to one another when they are speaking and hearing a kind tone of voice.

    Adventure in Bed

    Even if you think he knows you want him, show him anyway! Men want to feel desired and when he doesn't feel wanted by you, it can get to his confidence. Flirt with him, let him know that you're excited by him and that you feel lucky to be with him!

    Being Close with Enough Space of Their Own

    Men love their independence. This doesn't mean that they want to be left alone all of the time, but they do like to be able to do things on their own without having to check in or be made to feel guilty. Remember to give your guy time on his own to hang out with his friends or just have some alone time.
