Communication is a vital part of every healthy relationship. Sometimes, it can be hard to get your feelings across to the person you love. So, you have to consider different ways of doing this and showing them how much you care. Today, I’m going to give you a few ideas that’ll help you show your boyfriend (it works for us gals too if you're a male reading this) how much they mean to you. They’re all incredibly easy, and they prove that you don’t need grand gestures to make a significant impact on someone’s life!
Sit down and watch their favorite show (even if you hate it!)
Every guy has that one program or just something that they love to watch all the time. As a couple, there are some things that you happily watch together, and there are others that you just don’t get one bit. So, a great way to show how much you care is to watch their favorite show - even if you hate it. This might mean you end up having to watch anime and look confused the whole time, or you’re watching YouTube vLogs and not really getting the humor, or you could just be watching a sport. Whatever it is, just humor them by watching it together and showing that you’re actually making an effort to do something you don’t really like.
Surprise them with dinner
Cooking dinner for your boyfriend sounds as stereotypical as it comes, but it’s an excellent way to show your feelings. Especially when it’s unprovoked and a total surprise to them. Perhaps they’ve messaged you to say they’re coming over, and they’ve mentioned how tough today has been for them, or how tired they are. This is the perfect chance to show that you listen and care about them. When they arrive, they’ll see dinner is being made, and it will totally cheer them up. Nothing shows appreciation better than a homecooked meal!
Get them little gifts
Some couples will rarely get eachother gifts unless it’s for an occasion like birthdays, Christmas, or Valentine’s Day. But, if you want to show someone that you care deeply about them, then some random little gifts is a great place to start. Think of it as a small token of appreciation, and it will definitely surprise them. No one really expects a gift at a random time in the year, which is why this is such an effective way of showing you love someone.
If you struggle to really make your feelings known (because who knew girls also hide feeling!) - or perhaps you want to just do a few extra things to really show how much you care for your boyfriend - then these are three straightforward ideas. They’re not expensive, they’re not massive gestures, they’re just simple ideas that anyone can do at any time. You don’t need to try and live your life like it’s a fairytale to show affection and appreciation to the person you care about!
Of course, at the same time, it’s always good when you’re on the receiving end of these things as well! Hopefully, your boyfriend will also do these little things to show how much they love you too.
