Ten Fun Ways to Make Him
Fall in Love with You All Over Again
By Great Sex Coach, Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.
So you did it... you landed the man of your dreams. But now it's been a few years, and what was once a fairy tale has turned into the same old same routine. Fear not, ladies. There are plenty of fun ways to remind your man of just how much you love him -- and remind him of what a great catch you are, too!
It is, in fact, possible to keep monogamy sexy and interesting. (And keep your man bragging to his friends about his woman) Here are 10 ways to show him you care, and make him fall in love with you all over again:
Leave him a note. It seems deceptively simple, but stashing a secret note somewhere where he's sure to find it when you're not around (like his gym bag, briefcase, or inside his fridge) will make him smile and feel loved. It doesn't have to be sappy, just a quick "I love you!" or "Can't wait until tonight..." will keep you on his mind all day.
Be a tease. Let him know he'll be getting lucky later, and he'll be aching with anticipation for you by the end of the night. Leave your little black dress, a garter and stockings, and your sexiest panties laid out on the bed while you take a shower. When you emerge, inform him you've made dinner reservations. He'll know what's under your dress all night, and it's guaranteed to drive him crazy.
Say cheese. Randomly text him a sultry picture while he's at work, or away. It doesn't have to be XXX, a seductive smile, a peek of cleavage or even an "innocent" shot of your new bikini will all work just fine. The point is to remind him of what's waiting for him once he gets home and why he fell in love with you in the first place.
Make him a manly meal. You know what they say about the way to a man's heart? It's completely true. Perfect a meal fit for a dude, and you'll warm his heart. (And other parts of his anatomy as well) Forget the whipped salmon mousse or hearts of palm salad. Manly man food like a thick juicy steak and crisp salad, will do much better. Enjoy the meal alongside him, and bask in the heaping helping of praise that is sure to follow.
Send him a letter. Yes, an honest to goodness letter. Written on paper, stuck in an envelope, with a stamp... the whole deal. The next time you're out of town on business, visiting family, or otherwise away, or even if you never leave town, let him know you're thinking about him the old fashioned way. It certainly takes a couple of days longer than, say, pecking out an email, but when was the last time he got anything in his mailbox besides bills and his video game magazine subscription?
Surprise him with sexy time. Make like a sexy ninja and surprise him with a little stealthy sex. Meet him at the door in nothing but your newest boyshorts, or drive to his office at lunch time in nothing but a trench coat before having him meet you in the parking lot. Guys love a spontaneous woman, and it's a total turn on when a woman initiates sex -- this covers both bases. The old lipstick on the mirror trick. Are you going away on a business trip? Leave an I love You or XOXO on his bathroom mirror in your lipstick. If it's small enough, he'll probably leave it there until you come home. If you don't wear lipstick, you can use a bar of soap. Either way, it will remind him of you every time he brushes his teeth.
Pack him a lunch. If you know he has a big day coming up at work, a simple act of thoughtfulness can mean a lot. Help ease his chaotic day by putting a yummy lunch together for him. Add a note in the bag, and hand it to him as he's on his way out the door.
Say thanks. It's easy to take each other for granted when you've been together a while. But making him feel appreciated will also let him know you love him, and you don't take the things he does for granted. So, the next time he changes the oil in your car, fixes your leaky bathroom faucet, or kills the spider lurking on your ceiling, give him a great big kiss and tell him how much you love him for being him.
Embrace your inner dork. Forget what you may have heard -- guys love an adorkable girl. Roll with your goofy instincts and do something completely nerdy for him every once in a while. Swipe his keys and fill his car with balloons on his birthday. Make a playlist of his favorite classic rock tunes and add it to his iPod. Do a sexy striptease to your favorite burlesque tune, even if you have two left feet. He'll love the thought that you put into your little surprise, whatever it may be.
If you incorporate some of these simple tips into your weekly routine, you'll keep the sparks flying, increase intimacy and make him fall in love with you all over again in no time at all.
