Love is a set of emotions and behavior characterized by intimacy, passion, and commitment. To feel loved is not peculiar to any gender. In general, there are gestures that send the same lovely feeling or signal to both men and women. However, men perceive love differently since they are usually logical and not emotional. He expects to see how his woman supports his vision, his goals, his dreams, and his aspirations.
These simple but practical tips would make any man feel loved and respected and in return more devoted.
How You Can Make Your Man Feel He Is Loved And Respected
1. Feed His Ego
Respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
Generally, men interpret respect as love subconsciously. This means respect equals love. Although there are some exceptions, this is a general rule. A man will prefer that you respect him than to say “l love you” but saying those words will be the icing on the cake.
Men have an ego and that is their sense of self-esteem or self-importance. To buttress this, for example, if a woman admires the abilities, achievements, and unique qualities of a man and she expresses openly. The man will take this as her love for him.
The more beautiful and attractive to his mind she becomes rather than when she massages his ego. Men are wired differently, a man’s love is hidden in his woman’s respect for him, not just beauty, high level of intelligence, or wealth.
2. Appreciate your man
A man feels loved when he is appreciated. It sends a strong message to him that you are aware of all his sacrifices and you are grateful he is in your life. A grateful heart will always receive more. Say things like “Thank you for being here for me”, thank you for loving me, thank you for the gifts, thank you for listening.
3. Understand His Love Language
To connect more profoundly with your man and keep your relationship afloat, you need to recognize what love language he responds to and practice it more often. If your spouse’s primary love language is something that isn’t easy for you to do, you learn to speak a new language by trying. This will create a stronger bond and help you understand him better. By doing this, he will feel loved and respected.
4. Adapt The Old-School Style
If you want to make him feel loved and respected, go out of your way and do things differently. This era of technology makes love somewhat boring. Men appreciate new gestures. Some old school styles are;
- Sending a love letter through the mail.
- Leaving your favorite handkerchief with him after a date.
- Take a walk at the park without being disturbed by your phones.
5. Be His Stability
Peace of mind is the greatest desire of every man. As a matter of fact, they value their peace more than matters of the heart. This implies making an intentional effort to bring positivity and stability into his life. A man feels loved and respected knowing that he is safe with you.
6. Listen To Him
Listening strengthens relationships by providing you with different perspectives and annulling preconceived conclusions. Listen from your heart not with the aim of responding but with the goal of understanding. When you listen to him, you learn something about him, you create a state of deeper connection and also you understand what matters to them. A man feels respected when he can influence your decisions
7. Support Him
First, there is a need to understand that everyone needs support. A man feels loved when you are part of his support system. He needs a woman who encourages him to do better, one who sees beyond his average position.
This goes out to say that you support his ideas, dreams and motivate him to pursue his visions. It’s indeed obvious that behind every successful man is a woman who never gets tired of supporting him. Men unlike women will not outrightly say they need support because they believe that expressing vulnerability is a sign of weakness.
However, being there for him is a sure way to make him feel loved. You can ask questions like ‘what can I do to help you?’ some men just need to hear it. With some gentle persuasion, you’ll give him an opportunity to share.
8. Give Him A Surprise Gift
Everyone loves surprises, gifting has a way of strengthening relationships. When you buy your man a gift, you are saying he is important and you are thinking of him. Gifts have a way of spicing up relationships and keeping the magic active, your gifts do not need to be big or costly.
However, they should be something he appreciates and cherish. Gifting him shouldn’t be on only expected occasions but also on days he rarely expects it. This way, any man will feel loved and respected.
9. Celebrate His Efforts And Achievements
Recognize your man’s achievements and celebrate him in a special way like going out on a date, getting a befitting gift, and other exciting ideas you can think of. Celebrating his success at the moment also sets him up for future accomplishments.
No matter how little his accomplishment may seem, always celebrate him. A man is loved when his spouse recognizes his efforts. So, go ahead and tell him how proud you are of him
10. Be Nice To His Friends
Friends play a vital role in a person’s emotional wellbeing your relationship could be affected if your partner’s friends are not comfortable with you.
Therefore, try to effectively socialize with them, being a positive vibe around them, and don’t try to pull him from their company. You will win his love, respect, and trust.
