5 Ways to Make Your Man Happy

5 Ways to Make Your Man Happy

These many sound superficial to some, but they're guaranteed to give you a happy and healthy relationship or your money back.


Were all guilty of getting a little too comfortable in our relationships. But here are five ways you can make your man happy without him even noticing that it's for him. And trust me, in turn he’ll make you happy too. 

After you've been dating someone for so long it's easy to forget that what appear to be the "little things" most of the time end up being the big things. It's even easier for us girls to think that it's all about us. Why didn't he invite me over two nights in a row? Why didn't he send me a goodnight text? But we have to remember; things that are important to us aren't always important to them. 

Men are just wired different (it's a lame excuse, but I promise it's true). And over my years of relationships, break ups or the ever popular "thing," I've realized something extremely valuable...

When you start caring about the things HE cares about, he'll care more about giving you what you want.

So here it is ladies, your cheat sheet...

1. More Intimacy 

A healthy sex life is something that will radiate throughout the rest of your relationship. He wants to have sex three times a day? Do it. All it can do is make you closer! Plus, it's statically proven they think about it all day, every day; you can't blame the poor guys. So keep up with his sex drive... and who knows, maybe he'll keep up with your need to go to Red Bento twice a week. Fun fact... studies also show that 15 minutes of cuddling afterwards increases relationship satisfaction.

2. Take interest in what he likes

Having things in common in a relationship is nice, but having the same interests is even better. Guys love it when girls care about what they're passionate about! Wouldn't you? Watching a football or basketball game won't kill you, and you'll probably even end up liking it. Bringing that sense of friendship and playfulness back into your relationship will remind you guys of the bond you share other than the label.

3. Take care of yourself

I cannot tell you how sick I am of the "I have a boyfriend I don't need to try" excuse. Shouldn't you want to try more?! It sounds so superficial of me to say this, but don't let yourself go. Guys care about girls who care about themselves. When you look better, you feel better. And when you're happy with yourself it'll give him all the reason to be happy with you too!

4. Be okay with being the only girl in the room

Something that my relationship has personally LIVED off of. I am a true testament to saying that if you can kick it with the guys, he will have absolutely no complaints. There's no worse feeling for a guy than having to choose between the guys and his girlfriend, so help him out! It'll also just make him appreciate your alone time later on that much more!

Fun fact: this will also give his friends time to get to know you and grow to love you... which comes in veryyyy handy.

5. Leave the drama at the door

He DOES NOT want to hear your drama. Oh no, Susie borrowed your new top without asking? Newsflash: he doesn't care. He doesn't call you up when someone swoops him during the fantasy draft, so just give him the same courtesy. I know theres the whole "my boyfriend is my best friend" thing, but there actually is a fine line between what you can talk about with him and what you talk about with the girls. And most of the time they just pretend to care anyways so just spare him. Make your time together enjoyable and drama free!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
