You’re Still My Handsome Prince!

As women, we desire to have a deep emotional bond with our spouse.  We want to be loved and adored.  Our inner core is filled with contentment and happiness when we feel understood and appreciated. Making a wish list of traits we want our husband to have is effortless, but bringing out the best in him takes a lot of nurturing.

We need to nourish our spouse daily with love, support and understanding.    As a therapist, I have seen numerous men who are disappointed in their marriages. Many are frustrated and confused. Here’s a practical tip to instantly improve your marriage: MAKE HIM FEEL DESIRED.

When was the last time you gave a compliment to your husband? And I’m not referring to compliments on how well he fixed the leaky faucet. I mean a compliment on his looks or personality that will bring on a genuine smile.  It seems that the more comfortable we are with someone, the less polite and gracious we become.  Does that make any sense?  Each person desires attention and wants to feel attractive.  The need to feel attractive increases as men age, they require more assurance that they are still desirable and worthwhile.  There are two ways to make a man feel attractive: either tell him by giving him a compliment or show him that you are attracted to him.

Here are some ways to show your attraction to your husband:

  1. Take the time to look at him – deep in his eyes and have your eyes lock. There usually isn’t enough time to make eye contact and since everyone always has to be careful to lower their gaze in public, here is the chance to stare and be rewarded!
  2. Smile affectionately.
  3. Be generous in giving compliments – it’s amazing how a person will light up with kind words.
  4. Be playful, flirt and make him feel like the most attractive person.
