Things a man wants from his lady but will not tell you

One key difference I’ve observed between men and women is that women seem to be much more aware of what they want and need in a relationship…and aren’t afraid to express it. Men, for various reasons, aren’t always so in tune with what they need to feel loved and fulfilled in a relationship, and the ones who are aware will seldom come right out and say it.

For example, maybe your man feels underappreciated but doesn’t know how to say it. He might not want to hurt your feelings by suggesting you hang out with your friends more often. Perhaps you’ve put your passions on the backburner in favor of the relationship, but one of the reasons he liked you in the first place was your fire for life.

Let’s delve into eight things men love to see from you – things he’s rarely going to ask for – to keep his attraction for you alive and burning.

We love to cuddle

Now when I say we love to cuddle, I don’t mean that we love to cuddle from 11 AM till 2 AM the following morning. We’re men, we’re busy, and we have the stuff to do. But if you want to cuddle on the couch while watching a movie or for a little while before bed, we’re down for that. The closeness makes us feel good and we like to make you feel safe. Chances are it’ll also put us to sleep but that’s the risk you run.


While everyone deserves respect, men and women tend to feel differently about what it means. Think about those conversations where you’re venting about your day at work. Your guy inevitably jumps in to offer solutions. Innately, he’s a problem solver. You, on the other hand, may not need him to fix your problems, you just want to talk about them.

Make him feel like a ‘hero’

The Need: To feel needed.

Satisfy It By: Make him feel appreciated when he steps up for you

According to James Bauer’s hero instinct theory, men want to feel like your Superman – not your Clark Kent.

They want you to be impressed by the things they do and would hate for you to look down on them.

Being close with enough space of their own

This might be a personal opinion but if a couple isn't chill then things get heated quickly and life's too short for pointless disputes. Giving people their space is good as it keeps both your identities separate.


Guys want to be themselves around their girlfriends, and it sucks if they can't because of what the girl thinks
