Whether you two have been together for decades or you’ve just gotten into a relationship recently, you’ve probably given some thought to what your man is expecting from you and what it is that he wants.
Here, a couple of tips on what you can do to ensure a happy and healthy romantic relationship.
1. Emotional intimacy is key
Unlike women, most men don’t open up that easily. They find it difficult to talk about their feelings, mostly because it involves showing their vulnerability – the exact opposite of what they’ve been taught to do.
However, once they find someone they can trust, it is easier for them to be emotionally intimate. If a guy feels comfortable enough to share his thoughts and troubles with you, it can be a strong indicator that your relationship has evolved.
However, it might take some time for this type of intimacy to develop – don’t expect it to happen right away. There are few people in their lives they can really open up to, so do your best to be his safe space whenever he needs one.
2. They crave physical connection
Physical intimacy is just as important as emotional intimacy. However, while women tend to connect best through communication and their emotions, men connect best with their partners by being physically intimate with them.
The reason for this is the fact that men are generally much more visual when compared to women, which has them craving physical connection more often than females. It’s not just the act itself – it’s also the visual stimulation.
If you were thinking about how you can spruce things up in the bedroom, it might be a good idea to visit an online adult shop where you can browse around freely and see if there’s something you might like.
Wearing some exciting lingerie for his eyes only and tickling his imagination can send a man thinking about his partner all day, not to mention how the woman herself feels much more confident when she’s wearing something pretty underneath her clothes.
3. The attraction is very important
This one’s obvious, but when you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, you might notice that the attraction has lessened compared to how things used to be back when you were dating. This can happen for a lot of reasons.
Maybe one of the partners is being too pushy, needy, or demanding and it’s driving the other person away. Maybe it’s the mind games, or maybe it is the willingness to do anything for the other person that makes a person lose interest in their partner.
Some partners might even struggle letting go of the past, which is not only an essential part of living a positive lifestyle but it might also inhibit your current relationship.
All these things might lessen your partner’s attraction to you. The only way to keep that flame burning is to take a step back. Relax, let go of negative feelings, adopt a positive attitude, and just be your true, fun, authentic self.
4. They love to be praised
While men can seem so self-assured and confident in their abilities and looks, they could all use some reassurance from time to time.
Men love to be praised – who doesn’t? Whether it’s about their job, their skills, their traits, or how amazing of a lover they are in bed, men love when a woman boosts their ego and says great things about them.
And while they may not be getting as many compliments (or as often) compared to women, men still thrive when they get them, especially if they’re coming from their significant other.
Every once in a while, let him know that he’s special to you. Whether it’s congratulating him on a job well-done or showing your appreciation for him taking care of you, it’s these little things that can make a man feel great about himself.
Every relationship has its ups and downs, and it’s up to every couple to work together on theirs. Although it can be difficult at times, the rewards of being loved and cared for can help us surpass any hurdles we may encounter.
