A girl needs to know she’s loved and appreciated everyday. Never let a day go by that you don’t do or say something that’ll let her know how much you love her. Probably one of the questions that haunt the minds of many guys out there is… how to make their girlfriend feel loved?
To answer that query, I am here to share with you some simple ways so you can be the champion of her heart.
1. Compliment her.
A compliment that comes from your special someone means more to her than one from a stranger. But of course, you don’t have to lie just to make her feel loved, the memorable ones don’t have to come from a skilled poet or be overly flattering. Instead, choose your words wisely and be honest so that the compliment seems sincere and not too exaggerated.
2. Free you time just to be with her.
Letting her know that she is your priority reminds her how much you care and love her. “Too busy” is just a myth because if someone really matters to you, you won’t make excuses but rather, you’ll make time just to be with that special person.
3. Leave her a note with sweet messages.
Show to your girlfriend how much you love and care for her by sending her notes like “You look beautiful today” or “Your smile brighten up my day.” It only takes a few seconds to do it and it will immediately brighten up her day.
4. Encourage and support her.
One of the easiest ways to be supportive is to be encouraging. Always let her know that you think she can do something, and encourage her to pursue things that can make her feel happy. Hearing words like “you can do that”, “it’s okay not to be okay”, or “you’re not alone” can push her to do things she badly want, in times she feels like giving up.
5. Surprise her.
Girls love surprises but they aren’t always looking for huge and expensive gifts. Instead, they long for little acts of kindness in a simple surprise that can make them feel happy and loved.
Get her little “somethings”, like bringing her roses or her favorite chocolates. Take her a good dinner or prepare meal for her. You can also plan an outing together, since girls like to have a day out with her special someone. Well, whatever you decide always put love and effort in everything you do.
6. Be faithful.
Avoiding temptations and strengthening your relationship will help you make your girl feel loved. Never stare at other girls around because your girl is very sharp to catch it. Also, don’t set yourself up for failure by spending time with someone you would otherwise be attracted to. Instead, keep your eyes only with her and be busy looking for new ways to love your own.
7. Tell and show how much you love her.
A simple “I love you” can make her feel happy but the act of demonstrating love is another way to make her feel loved. Run some errands for her, pamper her with food, go on a vacation with her, buy her favorite book, or leave her little sweet notes like what I’ve mentioned in #3. Also, don’t forget small meaningful touches like holding her hands, hugs and kisses.
Remember that you can tell how much you love her as much as you want, but if your actions do not reflect your words, she won’t feel any better.
8. Truly listen to her.
When you can truly listen to your girlfriend’s feelings, you make it safe for her to express herself because the more she is able to do it, the more she feels heard, understood, and loved. Thus, take interest in listening carefully when she is talking to you, show response, get involved in the conversation, and never interrupt.
9. Respect her.
Respect isn’t all about opening doors , pulling out chair, or carrying things for her. Be that guy who’s willing to listen to her opinions, give her your honesty, and respect her decisions despite of your different perspectives.
10. Express you sincere gratitude.
Letting your girlfriend know how much you appreciate everything she does for you, is the same as expressing how much you love her. Her compliments and acts of kindness towards you deserve gratitude in return. So, as much as possible don’t forget to say “Thank you” either by telling her personally or showing it.
11. Be open and honest to her.
If you want her to feel loved, keep your doors and windows wide open. Tell her anything and everything with no secrets and lies.
12. Help her solve her problems.
Be that guy who’s willing to be her savior, hero or angel in disguise. Not someone who will leave her in times she’s trouble. Make yourself available, be there to comfort her, make the burden light, and gently be the solution to resolving her problem.
13. Make sacrifices.
Sacrifice your precious time, privacy, and some personal ambitions. Shallow your pride and give up your ego just to make your relationship work and make her happy. Be patient and deal with your partner’s emotional outbursts and temperament no matter how hard it is. And always remember that you’re in a partnership — your relationship, not only yourself, should be your priority.
14. Don’t give up on her (and your relationship).
Don’t lose hope during times of troubles. Think of all the things that you’ve been through together— the happiness and sorrow you experienced. Remind yourself the reasons why you love her, why you should keep holding on, and why you need to fight for her and your relationship.
15. Obey her.
“If you love me, keep my commands. – John 14:15
Girls are hurt when you try to ignore their rebukes. If she says “No” it means “No” so, be willing to follow and respect her orders because she’s only doing it for your own good. Make her feel truly loved by following her good commandments, such as living a healthy lifestyle, breaking bad habits and vices, working hard for the future and, of course, avoiding acts of cheating.
16. Let her know she’s part of your life.
Include her in your plans and life’s decisions. Show her that you’re thinking about her, not only in the short run, but also in the long run. Take her to your journey and grow together while you’re in a relationship. And finally, show her that you are serious and doing something to be ready to marry her and spend the rest of your life with her when the right time has come.
There may be a lot of ways to make a girl happy, but at the end of the day, you just want her to feel loved. In fact, every girl doesn’t need a perfect guy. What she needs is a special guy who can accept her the way she is and make her feel loved.
