There are all kinds of ways to remind your boyfriend that you love him. These little gestures do not need to cost money or take a lot of time. Basically, they keep the romance alive and show him that you are thinking about him when you are not together. If you don’t regularly do this, the following list will give you ideas of ways to remind your boyfriend that you love him.
1. Non-Holiday Gifts
A sentimental gift, given on a day that is not a holiday or his birthday, is one of the easiest ways to remind your boyfriend that you love him. This gift doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive. You don’t need a special reason to give him a gift, other than the fact that you love him. It could be as simple as a funny t-shirt or book that reminded you of him. The amount of money you spend doesn't matter.
Do you ever just text your guy to remind him that you love him? Sending a sweet little text message shows him that he was on your mind. These texts don’t necessarily need to be long or dramatic. Just a quick “I love you” text is enough to show you care. You like receiving sweet texts, right? It only makes sense that he would enjoy receiving them, too.
Many guys like a little bit of PDA. When the two of you are out together, playfully show him some public displays of affection. This can be as simple as squeezing his hand or patting his knee. Show the world that you are proud to be with this guy. As long as you don’t go overboard with it, a little bit of PDA shows him that you love him.
4. Take Interest in His Friends
When was the last time you took an interest in your guy’s friends? Even if they are annoying at times, don’t diss his buddies. After all, if your guy likes them, they must have some admirable qualities. When you alienate his friends, your guy will always feel like he has to choose between you and them. By taking an interest in his friends, it shows your boyfriend that you respect that part of his life.
No relationship can survive without a certain level of trust. Trusting your guy to make the right decisions gives you an air of confidence. Guys love a confident woman. Unfounded jealousy makes you appear insecure and obsessive. If you have no valid reason to distrust him, don’t fall into the jealousy trap. Trust is an important way to show your love.
6. Give Him Space
Giving your guy space does not mean you need to leave him for days on end. Just give your boyfriend some time to do his own thing. This way, he knows that his happiness is important to you. This means you shouldn’t make your boyfriend feel guilty about doing guy stuff once in awhile, instead of spending every minute with you. You’ve heard the old adage, “happiness makes the heart grow fonder,” right?
When I started dating my current husband, we used to leave each other little notes in odd places. For instance, I might drive by his workplace and leave a sweet note under the windshield wiper of his car. I knew that he’d see it when he got out of work and it would bring a smile to his face. He once left me a note in the sugar bowl because he knew I’d see it when I woke up and made my morning cup of coffee. These notes made us both feel loved by the other.
