The other night I was lying in bed with my boyfriend. I hadn’t seen him in a week, so it was lovely to make time for each other.
We started joking around and teasing each other, which made me laugh uncontrollably.
The following day, he sent me a lovely message telling me how happy he was that he could see me so relaxed and laughing so much.
It got me thinking that men aren’t nearly as complicated as we think they are. So, I did a bit of research through psychologists and theorists. And one of the most important things that a man needs to be in a committed relationship, is to know that he can make his love happy.
It goes back to their primal instincts. They feel like a hero if they can save you (I must admit, I find that super sexy), and they must also feel like they can fix any problem or task you need from them (apparently, if you can manage to do that task yourself, and show him such, then that really doesn’t count), and then there’s this happiness thing.
I think that the loveliest thing in the world to see between any two humans, is a joyful connection.
A few months ago, during the early days of our relationship, we went out for dinner in a little local restaurant. Next to us was another couple. The woman was stunningly beautiful. As our dinner transpired, we both glanced over to their table from time to time. Towards the end of our meal, my man gave me the biggest compliment, and I don’t even think he knew it. He shared that though our neighbour might be pretty, she wasn’t nearly as beautiful as me, as she didn’t smile once since we had observed her.
Ladies, share your joy, share your happiness. It’s the biggest gift you’ve got to give your man.
