There comes a time in each woman’s life when they meet someone really exceptional and will hold a special place in their hearts. Unfortunately for other women, these persons come and go but for the luckier ones, these persons stay for life. They are in their lives taking the form as husbands, boyfriends, companions, or simply lovers. For every woman, her man is her life, her happiness, and her future. She will do everything and anything it takes to make him feel loved and appreciated. If you are one of these women and you want your partner to feel your love even deeper, then simply scroll down below for additional ways on how to be more thoughtful towards your boyfriend:
1. Visit each other.
If you are in a long distance relationship with your boyfriend, then do not hesitate to visit him from time to time. Even if there is no distance separating the two of you, it would never hurt to drop by and check up on him. All the quality time you spend together in a relationship is important. They help you get to know each other on a much deeper level. Who would not love a surprise visit from a thoughtful girlfriend?
2. Support his endeavors.
If your boyfriend is an athlete, then be his number one cheerleader, if he is an aspiring chef, taste all of his prototype dishes, or if he is a writer then read all the manuscripts he gives you and give constructive input. No matter what, support your boyfriend in all his endeavors, in all his peculiar hobbies, or basically anything he is up to! A thoughtful girlfriend will never bring her boyfriend down and always push for personal and relationship growth.
3. Make him a snack.
It could be as simple as a sandwich or as complicated as making ratatouille and your boyfriend will still greatly appreciate it when finds it in his bag at lunchtime for work! One of the many ways of expressing your love and gratitude can be through food and cooking. As the famous saying goes, “the quick way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!” A simple act of making him a snack goes a very long way. It shows that you care for his health and well-being. Through it, you are also showing him of his importance to you in your life.
4. Connect with siblings and family.
If your boyfriend comes from a close-knit family, then be thoughtful enough to connect with his siblings and family. As a thoughtful girlfriend, you should get to know them, spend time with them, and bond with them. These are people who raised your partner or grew up alongside him so by spending your time to know them, you are also respecting the wishes of your boyfriend and getting to know a different side of him through their anecdotes and stories.
5. Check up on him.
You do not need to call him at every waking hour but it would be nice and thoughtful to check up on him every once in a while. You can simply ask if he has eaten, how he is doing, or any mundane matter. By doing this you are telling him that not only you care, but you are thoughtful enough to think about him and call him throughout his day. This is also a way of showing how significant he is in your daily routine, but you just have to set limits for yourself also, because no one likes an overly needy girlfriend!
6. Give lots of hugs.
Sometimes, when your boyfriend is down, the most thoughtful thing you can do is give him a hug. When he is tired from work or from extracurricular activities, you can just give him a big bear hug which he will always be grateful for. Never be the girlfriend who steps on her boyfriend when he is down meaning when you see that your partner is already in a melancholic mood, do not give more reasons to be depressed or annoyed by complaining about your day. Instead, increase some positive vibes that will cheer him up!
7. Throw him a surprise party.
Whether it is his birthday or not, it does not matter! The best parties are the unplanned and unexpected ones so throw him a surprise party! Invite his friends whom he has not seen for a while or his old band buddies, or his brothers and sisters, buy some food and drinks and give your boyfriend a good time. There will be nothing more fulfilling than the smile on his face when he comes over to you later to thank you for being thoughtful and pulling effort to give him a great night.
8. Do what he loves doing.
Take note of his interests and hobbies and research on them. A thoughtful girlfriend listens to her boyfriend and notes all the stuff that he loves doing and she fully supports them too! By doing what he loves doing, you are also, in a way, discovering a side of yourself you never knew. Who knew you would be into skateboarding? or motorcycling? or scuba diving? Show him that you indeed care about the things that he cares about. You two are partners in crime and are in it together!
9. Give compliments.
There is nothing more thoughtful and reassuring than giving the one you love some compliments. You should practice yourself to tell him a compliment at least once a day to boost his confidence and overall positive emotional energy. It can be simple like “I like the shirt you are wearing. It looks great on you!” or “Good job on your presentation! I am really proud of you!”, because these things matter to him and will surely have an effect on him. A compliment a day makes the stress go away!
10. Little things matter.
Little things DO matter. Even by saving your boyfriend a seat at the theater, handing him a towel during his basketball practice, or giving him a thumbs up every time he successfully finishes his work presentation, are ways of showing thoughtfulness to your boyfriend. He will surely notice them so never forget to do the little things because these little things have a very big impact on your relationship with him.
Every relationship and every person is different so in a way people show their caring side in a variety of ways, but that should not be a bummer. Instead, you should look at it as an advantage. As the unique, loving, and caring person you are, you will be able to express your thoughtfulness in other creative ways! Never forget to make your boyfriend feel loved and appreciated, because no matter how tough they are, they always need some warmth from the ones they love.
