Thinking of sweet things to say to your boyfriend can be difficult, especially if you are not accustomed to saying sweet things or perhaps a little shy or embarrassed.
Your boyfriend may also feel likewise so there are some considerations you might want to take into account before jumping in at the deep end!
Among all the nice things to say to your man those usual three little words usually say it all but I know that you want to make it special and personalise it so let’s talk about compliments…
I love you may be a nice thing to say to your guy but why do you love him? What’s so special about him that you love? What has he done for you that nobody else can or why do you try to spend all of your time with him?
A good friend once sat me down and explained that a compliment only became real if it involved taking a risk. Taking that into account,what they are trying to say is that it must mean something and you must show your feelings a little for it to mean anything.
An example, we thought about the phrase “I love you”, it might be a sweet thing to say but would he appreciate that or something that you took a little risk over and showed your feelings more?
For instance (Supposing this were the case) “I wondered if you ever thought about how much I adore the way you have made me be a more outgoing person and love myself a lot more. That’s why I love you.”
See how one is a loving thing to say to your boyfriend but the other is not only sweet, it is sincere and you showed your feelings. Which one do you think he will appreciate more?
We’ve spoken of compliments, let’s think about the right way to do it…
Pick Your Time
Men are funny creatures girls and it is really wise to pick your time wisely. You may think it is funny to say something sweet to your guy when he is taking a call to his work colleagues or he is with his buddies but that sweet thing you said to your man will end up embarrassing him and could possibly even cause an row.
Besides, it’s much better to catch him when you are alone and simply whisper it into his ear… Don’t you agree?
How to do it?
If you are having issues working out of nice things to say to your boyfriend then here is a way to quickly think of a couple and go from there…
Write down 3 things he has done for you. Things that were just lovely… anything like that. Make sure you start it with “you” and not “he.”
Okay, once you’ve done that write down how they made you feel inside, how much you appreciated it and what it means to you.
That’s it, all you’ve got to do is put them together. Let’s look at an example:
1.You waited with me in the pouring torrential rain when we first met, stood for my bus
2.You prepared food for all of my family the first time you met them
3.You make sure you open the door for me, carry my bags and allow me to go first
It makes me…
Go all tingly inside
Look forward to spending more time with you
Glad I met you
I appreciate it…
More than I realised
More than you’ll ever know
Put them together…
“I loved the way you stood for 2 hours with me in the heavy rain when we first met, waiting for my bus, it made me feel so special and I am so happy I met you, I love you more than you’ll ever know.”
So, mix and match and see if it feels good, if it does, you’ll know…
Go for it and make today the day you say some kind things to your boyfriend!
