Men are indeed romantic,given they get the right environment. More and more of men are coming out of their shell to admit that, yes, they want to be wooed from time to time, too. These 5 things make him extremely vulnerable.
1. Sending him out with the guys.
A guy's time with his friends is just as important as your girls' nights out, and acknowledging that makes you look like an independent, confident, insanely sexy woman. So if he's waffling on whether he really should go catch that game with the guys, encourage him to make like Nike and just do it already. And if it means you have a night to soak in the tub and stream one of the 50 most romantic movies of all time, well, consider that a bonus.
1. Switching up sex.
If you're in the habit of having sex with the lights out, keep them on. Do it in a different room (or a different place altogether). Watch porn together. Whatever your usual routine is, break it. Novelty can immediately infuse romance back into a relationship, and if he has some say-so about it, then he feels like his voice is being heard, says Goldstein. The easiest way to make sure he knows you're listening: Talk about his sexual fantasies, suggests Goldstein. As long as they don't make you uncomfortable, it might be fun to make one or two come to life.
2. Framing a picture.
"In this mostly-digital age, printing photos is becoming less and less common. "By taking a few extra minutes to print that cute snap from last weekend's date night, you're showing how much that memory means to you" — and it just might encourage the both of you to make more. Plus, there's just something nice about looking at a framed photo these days, don't you think.
3. Getting handsy.
This isn't about sex or a massage (though there's nothing wrong with cashing in on both of those), but simply touching and showing physical affection in your day-to-day activities. Holding hands when you walk down the street or playing footsie on the couch are reassuring actions — especially if their love language is touch — and can remind him that you love and appreciate his body, says De Angelis. And if you decide to explore elsewhere, it can give you time to become more aroused and really get to know every part of him, adds De Angelis. Not sure where to start? Here's 35 places that will turn him on.
4. Sneaking in a flirty note.
"Sometimes a man likes to hear that he's loved and missed," says Goldstein. "Corny as it sounds, if the woman puts a note in his briefcase or sends a text during work just to say how much she's looking forward to having sex that night, it can really make a guy's day." Easy enough,isnt it.
Just like you need reassurance every once in a while, so does he. So next time you're noticing how sexy his forearms look while he's slicing up veggies, tell him. And when you breathe a huge sigh of relief because he says he'll take care of bath time tonight, thank him. Sure, they're just words — but to him that can be solid gold when he's been having a bad day.
