Life isn’t always easy neither is love, but when you have a shoulder to lean on, it helps in fighting through the darkest times with ease. Sometimes, it doesn’t feel right when you find your girl a bit gloomy and you don’t even know the reason behind that sorrow. Whatever it may be, it is your responsibility to cheer her up.
There are many things you can do to cheer your girl up. Check the list below to find out how to make your girlfriend smile when she’s sad.
1. Talk to her.
A girl will appreciate the time you take just to talk to her. It’s a beautiful gesture that shows how much you care for her and eventually will brighten up her gloomy days.
2. Listen and understand her feelings.
When she pours her heart out to you, be a patient listener. Giving her the chance to talk will make her feel better. Also, be a listening ear for her pain and make her feel wanted.
3. Give her a hug.
A hug is a great way to brighten up your girlfriend’s mood. Physical affection can help provide emotional support and may be exactly what she needs. So, as much as possible comfort her physically.
4. Take her out on a date.
Planning a date for her might be a great way to take away all the blues she’s feeling inside. Take her out for a romantic candlelight dinner or a new place she hasn’t visited yet.
5. Show her positivity.
When everything looks enveloped in darkness, people need the right ray of positivity. As a boyfriend, consider it your responsibility to show her light during her gloomy days. Make her feel the zing of positivity, faith, hope, and strength. Be her pillar of strength and paint the beautiful smile all over her face again.
6. Try some humor.
They say laughter is the best medicine. So, in order to lift her mood, crack up silly jokes, tell her funny and embarrassing stories, do anything entertaining that would make her forget all the worries and sadness she feel inside.
7. Give her a small gift.
Give her a small token of love to make her smile. You can buy her favorite food, give her flowers, or leave her sweet notes. Simple things like that will eventually take away all the sorrow she’s going through.
8. Cook for her.
If the way to your heart is through stomach, the way to her mind is also through food. It doesn’t even matter whether it is just a fried egg. Your gesture is what will make her smile instantly.
9. Pamper her.
Pampering has a way of making girls feel better. Treat her to her favorite ice cream, buy her fries, or give her foot a massage. You don’t always need to do fancy things, because girls only need a bit of pampering and she’ll be really glad to have a boyfriend like you.
10. Watch her favorite movie together.
This may be tough, but if you really want her to think you care and want to see her smile again, it’s a small sacrifice to make.
11. Do things she likes.
Going out of your way to accompany her to an activity she likes, shows that you care more about spending time together. Picking out a new shade of lipstick for her or even hiking through the woods despite of being a homebody will bring a smile to her face and will remember the gestures in the future.
12. Travel with her.
Sometimes, it’s really nice to travel away from it all for a while. It’s like giving yourself a mini vacation. You see new sights and spend quality time together, all within the comfort of an exciting venue.
13. Remind her how much you love her.
When she’s sad or hurt, hug her or hold her hand, and tell her how much you love and care for her. She just needs to feel loved and cared of to see that beautiful smile again.
