2- Men love compliments. According to, society makes us believe that “real men” don’t need to be praised. But in reality, men do love it when there is a bit of well-intentioned objectification. That means squeezing their biceps or complimenting them on their outfit, for example.

3- Trying something new. Asking “can we try something new” in relationships is something that both men and women want but are afraid to say it out loud. Men especially are worried that they’ll be judged. There are all sorts of ways you can spice up your relationship with your partner, noting that every couple has certain things on their bucket list. Sometimes relationships can get boring and mundane after two people are together for a hill, so it is always a good idea to change things up.

4- Men love feeling needed. When men offer help, it’s not to make themselves seem more superior. In “Inside His Head”, written by Emmanuel Damilola, the author notes that men are actually fully aware that ladies are more than capable of handling themselves.

Men just want to show their women that they can protect them and help them whenever they need it.

5- Men LOVE when women initiate things. We mean, they can’t be the only ones doing all the work, right?

One person even wrote: “When my wife gets hot chocolate with whipped cream on top, she takes two coffee stirrers and uses them like chopsticks to eat all the cream”. They love when their partner eats messy or has silly little habits when eating. This is because guys love the little things about their partners. Just like we mentioned in the first point, it is the little things that count! Guys love the cute, quirky and weird things their girlfriends do. This is because it’s these small quirks that make a person’s personality, which is what guys love about their partners.

7- Romantic Gestures. According to Elite Daily and many other publications, there are so many “girly” things that men enjoy that people would just not expect. In addition to that, there are things that men secretly like when they are in relationships, or when they are into a girl that no one would expect..
