When couples have been together for a long time, they often grow apart. It happens to the best of us, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can show your woman just how much you care by doing little things to make her happy and keep the relationship alive. When you take the first step toward showing your lady how much she means to you, you start a chain reaction that knows no end. She is sure to be so overwhelmed with love and gratitude for the thoughtfulness you’ve shown that she’ll return the love and affection. It’s easy to forget that a good relationship doesn’t just happen. It takes WORK! There is more happiness to be found in a relationship when both partners believe that giving is much better than receiving, and that’s what this feature is all about. Don’t hesitate to tell her how great she looks or smells. Don’t just assume she knows you find her attractive. Tell her how great you think she looks or smells, especially if you know she’s taken extra pains to do so. Everyone loves to be complimented, and she likes to make you happy, so make it a point to let her know that you appreciate her efforts.
1. Randomly leave love notes for her to find.
Women love surprises, and finding a heart-felt love note unexpectedly is a fabulous way to surprise her. It doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out pouring of emotion. Just a sticky note with a few words of love scrawled across it and placed inside her coat pocket will do. When she finds it, she’ll brag to her friends and co-workers about what a wonderful partner she has.
2. Share your feelings.
I know it’s hard, especially if you’re a man. Men are not known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves. However, she’s not a mind reader, so if you really want to get on her good side, let her know how you’re feeling once in a while. She’ll like that you are comfortable enough with her to open up.
3. Just listen.
When a woman vents, she simply wants you to listen. She’s not looking for answers or advice. She just wants you to attempt to understand her point of view and to offer support. Just listen and be there for her as she figures things out for herself.
4. Tell her you love her
The easiest way to make your girlfriend happy and elated! Always tell her that you love her and how lucky you feel to have her in your life. Show her how much her presence means to you. Look into her eyes and tell her passionately that you love her. Telling her how much you love her will make her feel appreciated and special.
5. Pamper her
No matter how disciplined your girlfriend might be, all women love being pampered. They will not let out how much they long for someone to pamper them, but it’s one of their secret wishes. Pamper her as much as you can. Get her, her favourite food, give her massages when her body aches and smother her with kisses. To make your girlfriend happy, pamper her with spa sessions and other gifts like jewellery every once in a while.
6. Respect her
Women look up to a man who knows how to treat their woman. Treat her with respect and respect her views and opinions. Include her in your important decisions. Such gestures make a girlfriend happy and they feel that they’ve chosen the right person.
7. Spend Time With Her.
This is one of the most important things you have to consider in every relationship. No matter how busy or hectic your schedule is, don’t forget to free your time and create sweet moments with her. Do things that will make your time memorable together, even in the simplest ways.
8. Give Her Surprise Gifts.
You don’t have to buy expensive gifts. A simple treat of her favorite ice cream, a box of chocolates, or a movie ticket is enough to make your girl happy.
9. Be Sweet To Her.
Staying sweet with her no matter how long you’ve been together proving that you still love each other. A simple “I love you” or a simple present for her is enough to make her happy. Of course only show your sweetness and romantic side to her, not with other women… if you don’t like her to feel jealous and be upset
10. When She Looks or Smells Great, Tell Her!
Don't assume she knows she looks or smells good. Everyone wants and needs to hear when others notice them. She will always want to look and smell nice for you if you let her know how much you appreciate the effort. She married you because she wanted to make you happy—let her know she's succeeding! When. I was much younger, I was a bit self-centered and didn't have many friends. I took a self-assessment to learn what I could do to change and discovered that people are much more pleasant to be around if they take the focus off themselves and notice the good in others instead. So give her a compliment!.
11. Thank Her for the Little Things She Does
If she does something sweet or thoughtful for you, thank her! But also realize that not only is she sweet, but she may be sending you a signal that she would like the same thing done for her, from the heart. I ask myself, "If someone did this for me, would it make me feel loved?" Because whatever makes me happy will probably also please someone else.
12. Send Her Text Messages
Don't know how to text? For her, learn, then text her during the day, out of the blue. Say something like, "I meant to tell you how pretty you looked this morning when you left for work," or "you are all I can think about today, I miss you!" or simply say, "Have a good day, sweetheart. Many men don't want to text. They wonder, "Why would I waste time texting when I can just call her on the phone? Well one of the nice things about texting is that no one can hear what you're saying! A couple can have a private conversation without being overheard by coworkers. Also, men, we women cannot always answer our phones while we are at work, but when we have stopped for a quick break and see that you have texted us, it brightens up our day! You don't have to carry on a long conversation with texting, it's just for quick messaging.
13. Cheer her on
Even though you’re in a committed relationship with your girlfriend, we all have our own lives. We have our own paths with different personal dreams and aspirations. acknowledgethat you are each on your own path.” Youdon’t need to become one entity – that would be unhealthy. So whatever your girlfriend is trying to accomplish in her life, cheer her on. Be her number one supporter.
14. Focus on your communication
Communication really is the most important factor in making a relationship work. A common negative pattern that I see in my relationships is communicating in a cycle of criticism and defensiveness. How does this happen? Well one partner hears something they perceive as an attack from their partner which leads to an immediate defense. This sets both partners to be not heard and there is no level of understanding. The key to avoiding patterns like this is through adequate communication.
