Men sometimes feel insecure in their relationships just like women. We often fear that we’re not good enough or that you’ll leave us or that you don’t love us anymore. Yes, it sounds crazy but it’s true. Here are some simple ways to remind your partner that you love him that he’ll definitely appreciate.
Give him a gift. This is a little cliche and obvious, but getting someone a gift when it’s not a birthday or gift-giving holiday is always a good way to show you care. It doesn’t have to be a fancy or expensive gift, just think of something silly or maybe sexy that you’ve never given him before that you know he’ll like. No pressure—just a small, thoughtful gesture.
Leave him a note. This isn’t difficult to do but it’ll score a lot of points with the guy in your life. Just scribble a handwritten note telling him that you love him and maybe giving a reason why. If you include a piece of candy or something sweet along with it, all the better.
Tell him you had a dream about him. If you dream about a guy, as long as it doesn’t involve one of you cheating on or murdering the other, you should always tell him. It lets us know that both your conscious self and your subconscious one are totally into us. Also, if you make up having a dream about us, we’ll love it and probably never know the difference.
Give him some over the top PDA. Before you do this, make sure your boyfriend is cool with PDA. Of course, you should be as well. Assuming it’s all systems go, find the right time to just make out with him hardcore in public or some other way to do some over the top PDA. It may catch him a little off guard, but it does send the signal that you love him and you don’t care if the whole world knows. Note that this doesn’t mean have sex in a public place, but that’d probably be cool with your boyfriend too.
Text him that you love him. If you’re not down with a 20th-century style note, saying “I love you” via text is the next best thing. Believe it or not, you definitely shouldn’t do this all the time. However, a text every once in a while with those three little words is a good way to remind your guy how you feel. If you two are a little out of sync or haven’t spent a ton of time together lately, it may actually be the perfect time to send that kind of text.
Send a sexy selfie. While your phone is out, think about sending your boyfriend a sexy selfie. Keep in mind that if you really want to show him you care, you can’t just snap a quick photo—it’ll require a little bit of work. Find the right outfit so that you feel sexy because that will come across in the photo. This doesn’t have to be the female equivalent to a d*ck pic, just something to let him know that you still want him.
Make him a mixtape. If you want to go old school, you can always make your guy a mixtape, or whatever the modern-day version of a mixtape is (maybe a Spotify playlist). Yes, it’s a little cheesy and perhaps a bit nerdy, but maybe he likes those qualities in you. Just make sure you put some thought into what songs you include on it. Remember, you’re trying to remind him that you love him, so this will take a little bit of effort.
Plan a day that’s all about him. If you have the time and money, surprise him with a weekend getaway or vacation to a place he’s always wanted to visit. Short of that, put together one full day of doing stuff you know he likes. It could be going to a sporting event, a brewery tour, staying in bed all afternoon, or a combination of all of those things and more. Again, it doesn’t have to be a birthday present. Just do it because you want to remind him that you care.
Order his favorite food. Conventional wisdom says to cook for a man to show you love him, but that’s a little antiquated. Instead, order food from his favorite restaurant and have it waiting for him when he gets home one day. He’ll be unbelievably thankful for the gesture and know that you care about him. It’s also a nice segue into a romantic evening at home, just in case you haven’t had one of those in a while.
Give him a great big hug. Nothing says “I love you” like a genuine, heartfelt hug. There’s no planning required. Just grab him and squeeze him as tight as you possibly can. He may be a little taken aback at first since most long-term couples don’t typically embrace like that on a regular basis, but he’ll get the sentiment for sure.
