How often do you compliment your husband?
There is no big gender difference on this one. We all want to hear what we have done well, and hearing it from our spouse is particularly important. I can tell you this matters more to most men than they let on. He cares what you think about him (perhaps a bit too much).
- Comment on something he often does well.
- Compliment him for something he just did for someone.
- Thank him for something he has steadfastly done for you.
- When you see another husband failing where your guy does well, thank him for that thing.
