How To Love A Man Better Than Anyone Else Ever Has

When you find your person and know that they’re “the one”, it’s hard to describe all of the emotions that you go through. There’s definitely a strong desire to express to them just how much you love them and how much they mean to you. Here are a few things you can do to show a man how much you love him and to love him better than anyone else ever has.

  1. Give him verbal confirmation. One of the easiest and most obvious ways to show someone how much you care about and appreciate them is to simply tell them! Tell this man that you love him every single day. Sure, he already knows you do but hearing someone say “I love you” just makes you feel warm and happy inside. Don’t just tell him that you love him, tell him why you love him. Compliment him and tell him all of the reasons that you adore him. I promise he’ll return the favor and it will just make your relationship even better.
  2. Discover his love language and use it. Love languages are so important in romantic relationships because everyone has a favorite way to give love and a favorite way to receive it. Some people might not put much stock into love languages but they’re very important to the overall health and growth of your relationship. If he loves words of affirmation or physical touch or acts of service, find little ways to shower him with those things every day. Not only will it make him feel happy and loved but it will also show him how much you love him that you took the time to figure out what his love language is and exercise it regularly.
  3. Confide in him. Sharing our emotions, our secrets, and our struggles with a partner is one of the most emotionally intimate things you can do. If you can be vulnerable with your partner, it’s a way to show them that you trust them and value their opinion and advice. Have long talks with your guy. Tell him what’s on your mind. Tell him when you feel scared, angry, sad, or anxious. Share your triumphs and your failures with him. If you’re afraid of sharing too much and scaring him off, you’re probably not with the person. The one for you will welcome all of your feelings, big and small, good and bad.
  4. Trust him. Trust is an extremely essential component of every successful and happy relationship. Just like you trust him with your emotions and your secrets, trust him with his own actions and behaviors. If you know him and know that he wouldn’t do anything to betray you then prove it by not accusing or assuming things. Don’t let insecurities or the opinions of others keep you from trusting your guy. On the other side of that token though, he shouldn’t be withholding anything from you. He should have nothing to hide so, treat him like he doesn’t.
  5. Be present. When you’re spending quality with him, be fully present in the moment with him. Put your phone away, don’t think or stress about work, friends, or any other drama that might exist in your life. All of that can wait for a little bit. Just focus on your guy and enjoy that time together. No matter what else is going on in your life, you should always be able to take a beat and relax in the comfort and safety of your partner. So, enjoy your date nights, enjoy evenings on the couch with dinner and a good movie and let everything else fade in the background for a little bit. Not only is it good for your mental health but it will always let your partner know that you value your time with him.
  6. Fight fair. Fights are inevitable in every relationship but the way they play out is important. Healthy relationships that are full of love and respect contain fights that are fair. Fighting fair consists of speaking in a respectful tone and listening to each other in order to correct the situation and have a productive conclusion. Fighting unfairly consists of low blows like name-calling and dredging up the past and bringing things to the surface that have no place in the current argument. Fighting fair is a way to show love to your partner even when you aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on something.
  7. Give him affection. Physical affection is a great, simple way to show your partner how much you love them. Don’t be afraid to give extra hugs, random kisses, and cuddle every chance you get. Physical touch is something we all crave in some way or another and it’s a great way to connect with your partner on a physical, intimate level.
  8. Appreciate the little things. Having gratitude within your relationship is another way to show love and give love to your partner. Appreciate those little, tiny gestures and small things they do for you because it shows them how much you care and how much you value them.
  9. Cherish your relationship. It’s important that you never take your great relationship for granted. Cherish your partner and cherish what you have together. When you think about it, in a sea of millions of people in the world, it’s pretty extraordinary that you found someone who gets you, loves all of you, and wants to spend their life with you. It’s a remarkable, beautiful, magical thing and it deserves to be cherished. Nothing will make your partner feel more loved than knowing how much you value what you have with them.
  10. Include him in your dreams. We all need our own identity outside of our relationships and it’s important and special to have your own thing, however, it can be just as special to include your partner on it. Even if it’s just sharing your world with them, sharing your dreams and goals, telling them what you want to accomplish, it means a lot. It’s amazing to have a partner who supports you in your ambitions and pushes you to work to achieve them. So, share that part of yourself with him too and I guarantee you that he will feel all of the love you have for him.
