Girlfriend’s Guide: 7 tips on How to Treat Your Man Right

Relationships are a two-way street, and it is important to show appreciation and affection towards your partner. While there is no one-size-fits-all guide to a happy and healthy relationship, there are some general tips that can help women treat their men in the right way. By making small changes in their behavior and communication, women can strengthen their relationships and create a more loving and fulfilling partnership. Here are some ways to treat your man right, let’s dive in!

Communication is Key

My boyfriend always say that line, and lets be honest, he isn’t wrong. One of the most important aspects of a healthy and happy relationship is communication. It’s essential to have open and honest communication with your partner, especially when it comes to expressing your feelings and needs. During our relationship, we have found out a couple tricks to better communication and who knows, maybe they will help you too. Here are a few tips on how to improve your communication skills and strengthen your relationship:

  • Listen actively: When your partner is speaking, make sure to give them your full attention and avoid interrupting or jumping to conclusions.
  • Express yourself clearly: When it’s your turn to speak, be clear and concise. Make sure you avoid beating around the bush or using vague language.
  • Be respectful: No matter how heated the conversation gets, it’s important to remain respectful towards your partner. Avoid name-calling or attacking their character. Instead, focus on the issue at hand.
  • Compromise: In any relationship, it is normal and healthy to have disagreements. It’s important to find a middle ground that works for both partners. Be willing to compromise and find solutions that benefit both of you.

Communication is a two-way street. It’s not just about expressing your own needs and wants, but also about listening to your partner and understanding their perspective. If a problem arises, it’s very important to note that neither of you is the problem; the problem is the problem. You aren’t going to get far if all you are doing is blaming the other person. By actively listening to each other and understanding both sides, you can build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship with your man.

Dealing with arguments

Sometimes you will get into fights, too. But worry not, here is how to turn a fight into a respectful and understanding talk.

  • Don’t engage with anger by raising voices higher: it only makes things worse. Politely and softly tell your man that you won’t talk until he talks in the same tone and volume as yours. This will immediately bring him down a notch and will show him that this isn’t a fight, its a civil conversation.
  • Look him in the eye: Make sure you have his attention by looking into his eyes or by lightly touching him in a non-threatening way. If you can, it’s best to do both.
  • Breathe slow and loud : This is a small detail, but it will help to calm him down. if you consistently breath deep and slow, he will suddenly begin to copy your behavior and he will start to calm down as well.
  • Give him a hug: This if fool proof I promise you. Hugs are a great way to calm someone down. How many times have you given someone a hug while they were crying and how many times did that help the person? Exactly. It’s the same thing for anger or frustration.

Once he is calm, then you guys can talk it out. Being calm in an argument will give you an upper-hand. It sounds counter-intuitive but it is true.

Respect His Space

One of the most important things you can do to treat your man right is show him respect. Listening to him when he speaks, valuing his opinions and feelings, and avoiding criticism or belittlement are all things you can do to show respect to your king. By treating him as an equal partner in the relationship, a woman can create a sense of trust and mutual respect that will strengthen their bond.

It’s important to remember that everyone needs some time and space to themselves, including your man. Giving him the space he needs can help him feel more relaxed and comfortable in the relationship. Here are some tips on how to respect his space:

  • Let him have time to himself: Don’t take it personally if he needs some alone time. Encourage him to pursue his hobbies and interests without feeling guilty.
  • Don’t be too clingy: Give him some breathing room and avoid constantly texting or calling him. Trust that he will reach out when he’s ready to talk.
  • Respect his boundaries: If he tells you he needs some space, don’t push him. Give him the time he needs to recharge. He will come back to you.

Remember, him needing space doesn’t mean he doesn’t like spending time with you, all it means is his social battery has run out or he has something on his mind and can’t give you 100% of himself to you and that is ok. Don’t take it personally and don’t make him feel bad about needing space.

Show Appreciation

Another key to treat your man the right way is to show him affection and appreciation. This can take many forms, from simple gestures like saying “I love you” or giving a hug, to more elaborate acts of kindness like cooking his favorite meal or planning a surprise date. When my boyfriend and I were in a long distance relationship, I still sent him poems and letters in the mail which he really appreciated.

By expressing love and gratitude towards your partner, you as a woman can create a positive and nurturing environment that will nourish a healthy and happy relationship.

Everyone likes to feel appreciated, and your man is no exception. Here are just a couple ways to show your appreciation:

  • Thank him for the little things he does, like taking out the trash or fixing something around the house.
  • Compliment him on his appearance or something he’s done well.
  • Surprise him with his favorite meal or treat.
  • Give him a thoughtful gift, like something related to his hobbies or interests.

Keep in mind your partner’s love language, too. If his love language is gift giving, make sure to give him gifts occasionally. The gifts you give don’t have to be big and extravagant, it can be little things such as note cards or his favorite candy. Give something personal to him maybe something that only you know he likes. This will ensure that you are attentive to his desires and needs.

Something I like to do is hide cute poems around the house for him to find. This is a great way to keep the relationship playful while keeping the excitement alive. Small, consistent acts of kindness and gratitude can go a long way in making your man feel loved and valued!

Be Affectionate

There are three components to achieve a fulfilling relationship; intimacy, passion, and commitment. With all of these elements put together, you will attain what is called a consummate love, a healthy committed type of love. Consummate love is often described as the highest form of love, where all three components mentioned above are present and balanced in a relationship.

One important aspect of consummate love is the expression of affection, which plays a crucial role in maintaining the relationship. Affection can be defined as the expression of caring and tenderness towards one’s partner, which can take many forms, such as physical touch, words of affirmation, or acts of service. When affection is present in a relationship, it can enhance intimacy by creating a deeper emotional connection between partners.

It can also help to sustain passion by keeping the spark alive and reminding partners of their attraction to each other. Affection can reinforce commitment by making partners feel loved and valued, which can foster a sense of security and stability in the relationship.

Be His Cheerleader

Your man needs to know that you are there for him and that you support him in his endeavors, both big and small. Here are some ways to show your support:

  • Encourage him to pursue his dreams and passions, even if they are different from your own.
  • Be there for him when he needs someone to talk to, whether it’s about work, family, or anything else.
  • Offer to help him with tasks or projects that he is working on, such as proofreading a report or helping him move to a new apartment.
  • Celebrate his successes, no matter how small they may seem. Let him know that you are proud of him and that you believe in him.

It’s very important that you don’t get in the way of his goals and aspirations. As harsh as it may sound, his school or his career always comes first. Your man is working so hard in order to care for you and give you an easy life, so the least you can do is support him in any way he needs. Being supportive is not just about words, but also about actions. Show your man that you are there for him and that you have his back, no matter what.

One important thing to keep in mind is to avoid being overly critical or negative. If your man is going through a tough time or is struggling with something, try to be understanding and offer constructive feedback instead of just pointing out his flaws.

Ultimately, being supportive is about being a team and working together to achieve your goals. By showing your man that you are there for him, you can build a strong and healthy relationship that will stand the test of time.


One of the best ways to keep your man happy is to surprise him every once in a while. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, just something thoughtful that shows him you care. To give you a few ideas:

  • Plan a surprise date night. Take charge and plan a night out doing something he loves, whether it’s going to a sports game or trying out a new restaurant.
  • Leave him little love notes. Stick a note in his lunch or on his car dashboard to brighten up his day.
  • Cook him his favorite meal. Surprise him with a home-cooked meal of his favorite dish.
  • Do something he’s been wanting to do. If he’s been talking about taking a weekend trip or trying a new hobby, surprise him by making it happen.

You know that saying that goes “It’s the thought that counts”? Your man will appreciate the effort you put into surprising him, no matter how big or small the gesture. So get creative and have fun!


Treating your man right is all about showing him love, respect, and appreciation. It’s important to communicate openly and honestly, and to always make an effort to understand his needs and desires. By taking the time to listen to him, support him, and make him feel special, you can strengthen your relationship and build a strong foundation for the future.

Remember, treating your man right is not about being perfect or doing everything right all the time. It’s about making an effort to be the best partner you can be, and showing him that you care.

So, ladies, take these tips to heart and treat your man right today. Your relationship will thank you for it!

After working all day, the man finally stepped foot into his abode and inhaled the scent of love and contentment. His eyes gazed across the table that was set with food just for him. As he hung up his coat, he noticed that the laundry was folded and put away, and he couldn’t help but feel grateful for all the effort his wife put into making their home a comfortable and welcoming space. Sitting down to eat, he savored every bite of the warm, home-cooked meal and felt a sense of comfort wash over him. As he cleared the table and washed the dishes, he reflected on all the little things his wife did to make his life easier, and he couldn’t help but feel lucky to have her by his side.
