Here are some simple tips on keeping your husband, or boyfriend for that matter, happy.
Get your ego out of the way – It’s difficult for love and ego to co-exist for long. If it’s always about “what can I get out of this?” you can’t ever experience an enriching relationship. In fact most relationships go sore because of ego involvement. Do you always try to have your way, make your opinion right or get your point of view across? If this is your attitude, it’s gonna give you a lot of pain and it’s not going to keep your husband happy.
Guys are not great at understanding, but that’s their nature. Can you live with it? If you can’t then there is bound to be friction. Let him be and don’t get frustrated when he doesn’t understand you. In fact quit trying to make him understand you and your needs. Just focus of being affectionate towards him, not as pretence but out of the genuine love you feel in your heart. If you really love him, you won’t worry about placing your ego aside. And if you don’t love him completely, then it won’t be easy for you to ever make him happy.
Keep yourself fit – Guys like slim girls for a reason – they love curves. Men are visual creatures and they like to watch a curvy body. This is almost an unconscious tendency with men. So when you see him go gaga over a woman with a great figure, don’t take it too personally. Instead try to work on keeping your figure trim and shapely. Just because you are married does not give you the license to get fat or out of shape.
Experiment with your looks – There are so many things you can do with your looks as a woman, that it’s almost a gift. You can work your hair, get a facial, get manicures, wax up your body, get a hair color, use eye liners or lipstick and wear accessories of all sorts. Why did you settle for one look? When your husband sees you looking more and more sexy, it’s bound to get him interested. Men are visual beings and there nothing that makes them happier than a beautiful woman.
Stop nagging – Try to be his girlfriend rather than his mother, always. There is nothing less attractive to a guy than a nagging woman. For some reason most women turn to nagging after marriage. Stop trying to improve your husband and just accept him for what his is. When he sees such an unconditional love on your part he will reciprocate in the same manner. If he is a little disorganized, just live with it and stop criticizing him for it. When you criticize him, or show him down, he will feel resentment towards you and he’s definitely not going to be happy.
Make an effort at your cooking – Men love eating and they do indulge in it. They expect their wives to be a great cook too. If you are not great at cooking, try to improve upon it. If you are good at cooking then try new variations and recipes on daily basis. When he sees you cooking up tasty dishes, he will look forward to his meals. Few things make a man as happy as a tasty meal. Roast chicken, beef tenderloin, stuffed duck etc are dishes very popular with men. When you see him reclining on the sofa with satiation written all over his face, you know he is really pleased.
Be cheerful – Happiness is contagious. When you are happy and cheerful, your husband is bound to catch on to your vibe. Men find vivacious and perky girls very attractive, because they radiate a free energy. It’s also very feminine to be cheerful. Drop your worries and stress, they are doing you no good anyway. Just concentrate on being cheerful no matter what happens and see how things work for you.
These are 6 simple way to keep your husband happy. Genuine love and care is all it takes to keep a relationship healthy. Remember that ego in any form is a killer, so keep it aside. Men find it harder to deal with their ego than woman, so you will have to be the more understanding partner in your relationship.
