6 Ways to Make Your Man Feel Loved

Too often, we think of romance as something that only women want and need - sending flowers, holding hands, saying sweet nothings. But men want to feel connected to and loved by their partners too! Loving gestures can look different for each person but being romantic doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Sometimes the simplest things can make all the difference in making your man feel loved and appreciated!

Here are six things you can do to make your man feel loved:

1. Show Interest in His Thoughts and Feelings.  Men love it when the woman in their life takes an interest in their thoughts and feelings. Ask him questions about his day, his hopes and dreams, his innermost thoughts and feelings. Genuinely listen to his answers without judgement or criticism.

2. Give Him Your Undivided Attention. When He’s Talking It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget to show our partners that we are fully present when they talk to us. Show your man that he has your undivided attention by looking into his eyes while he speaks and listening with empathy and understanding.

3. Express Appreciation for Small Things He Does. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way! Tell him how much you appreciate the small things he does for you such as taking out the trash or running errands for you. People need for feel appreciated and your man is no different. Studies have actually shown that couples who often thank each other and express appreciation have longer lasting relationships.

4. Ask Questions That Encourage Him To Open Up. Everyone needs an opportunity to open up about their true thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged or criticized - even men! Be the safe space where he can go to discuss how he feels when he's ready to do that. Ask him questions that encourage him to get vulnerable with you such as "What was the hardest moment of your day?" or "Are you feeling okay?" Ask him questions about problems he may have already mentioned to see if they were resolved. If he doesn't want to discuss it the moment that fine too. Just let him know you'll be there whenever he needs someone to talk to.

5. Demonstrate That You Understand Him Through Empathy. Showing empathy means putting yourself in someone else's shoes, feeling what they feel, understanding what makes them tick - all things which will lead to a deeper connection between the two of you! Listen carefully when he talks about something that is important to him, then respond with “I understand” rather than offering judgement or advice (unless asked!).

6. Celebrate What Connects You To Each Other. Romance doesn’t always have to be over-the-top gestures; sometimes it's simply celebrating special moments together like sharing a cup of coffee or watching a movie on the couch cuddled up together under a blanket! Quality time with just the two of you is important. Make sure these moments are full of laughter, joy, and love - this will help keep your connection strong for years to come!

At its core, romance is all about connection! It's not about gifts and dinner. The simplest things can make all the difference in making your man feel loved and appreciated! Expressing interest in what he is thinking and feeling, giving him your undivided attention, thanking him for something he said/did and allowing him a safe space to be open, will make him fill loved. It's not about grand gestures for men. Simply celebrating those special moments together where both of you feel connected on a deep level - will go much further than a two hour dinner or a box of chocolates.

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it


Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y

Why is he Hiding You?

So you've been seeing this really great guy. You have the same sense of humor. You have a lot in common. You enjoy being around him and you're together all the time. He even calls you baby and gives you kisses on your forehead. Only problem is, he hasn't introduced you to his friends or family yet. He doesn't post you on his social media. He rushes you off the phone when he's around other people. Why is he hiding you? When you ask him he might tell you that he's a private person, that he doesn't like people in his business, or that he's not ready to "go public." This is not a good sign. There is a clear difference between a low-key relationship and keeping you a secret. Any relationship that has to be hidden is a problem.  Here are a few reasons he may be keeping you a secret (and none of them are good). 1. He's married or has another girlfriend This is the number one reason for a man to keep his relationship with you under wraps. Chances a
