The best ways to make your girlfriend happy

A perfect relationship is never one sided. When you make the effort to please your girlfriend and make her happy, she’ll involuntarily put in her effort at making you happier in love if she truly loves you back.

So the next time you’re with your special girl, instead of holding back, give more. In mutual love, every loving act gives back more happiness to both lovers.

For starters, use these ways on how to make your girlfriend happy, to pamper her and please her. And I’ll tell you this, you’ll definitely be the winner in the game of love.

1. Remember the big dates

This is right up there at the top, because somehow, most men just don’t seem to remember the dates that matter. Why? I mean, it’s not that hard! You remember stats from games, and so many other things that aren’t really significant, but you don’t believe your girlfriend’s birthday or your anniversary is an important date to remember?

When you remember the special days in your relationship, it makes your girlfriend believe she’s as important to you as the other things in your life. Want to let her know she’s special? Remember the dates! [Read: 8 relationship dates men should never, ever forget!]

2. Make her friends envy her

All of us want our relationships to be perfect, but very few of us actually work towards making it perfect. Treat your girlfriend with love and affection, and pay attention to all her needs, especially when she’s around her friends.

When her friends notice how good a catch you are, her heart will swell with pride and happiness, and you’ll be the kind of guy every girl wants to date too! [Read: The 15 things girls look for in a guy before falling for him]

3. Don’t disrespect her on social media

These days, this is easy to do. But don’t be one of those guys. You’re in a committed relationship with someone you love and respect. Do you really have to follow a thousand Instagram models with OnlyFans accounts and like all of their posts? Do you have to comment a drooling face emoji on a post with some random girl’s butt? [Read: My boyfriend likes other girls’ pictures on Instagram and I feel hurt]

We get it, it’s irresistibly sexy. But unless you know this girl personally, you shouldn’t follow her or like a random skimpily dressed girl’s picture, out of respect for your girl. If you can’t help yourself, create a finsta account and follow all the girls in the world that you like.

But when you do it from your personal account, you’re disrespecting her, especially when all your mutual friends see your likes and smirk because your relationship is now fodder for new gossip. [Read: 15 things you should never do on Instagram when you have a girlfriend]

4. Don’t ignore her when she’s with you

If you want to know how to make your girlfriend happy, make her feel like she’s the center of your world all the time, and especially so when you’re around her. Don’t ignore her because you’re having a fun conversation with another attractive girl or are distracted by something else. When your girlfriend is around you, it doesn’t matter who or what is around, make sure your attention is focused on your girl. [Read: 19 annoying boyfriend traits and how you can avoid them]

5. Respect her opinions

As humans, respect plays a big part in how we feel about ourselves. When we feel disrespected by someone important to us, we feel miserable. And this holds the same effect in relationships too.

Don’t dismiss your girlfriend’s opinions and ideas without listening to her, and don’t take her lightly just because “she’s a girl”. In a relationship, both partners have to learn to listen to each other and respect each other’s point of view. 

6. Ask her for help

You may be a big, fully grown man. But that shouldn’t stop you from asking your girl for help now and then. By letting your girlfriend see your vulnerable, helpless side, she’d feel closer to you because you aren’t afraid of showing your weaknesses to her.

7. Compromise for her

Every now and then, compromise your wants for her needs. If she wants to watch a romantic movie while you want to watch something else, give in to her now and then.

When she sees how you’re willing to give up something you like just to please her, it’ll only make her feel more loved and happy. And she WILL do the same for you even when you don’t ask her for it. That’s just the way true love works between two givers. [Read: How to compromise in a relationship and not feel like you lost out]

8. Cuddle up with her at home

Do you end up getting turned on each time you hug your girlfriend or kiss her for a few minutes? That’s understandable. But at least once a day, hug her tight and cuddle with her while watching the telly or when both of you are lying in bed if you want to know how to make your girlfriend happy and loved.

For a girl, a few hugs and sweet kisses feel just as special as a good round of passionate sex. Physical touch is more important for women than sex, so if you want to keep her smiling, hug her. A lot more often! [Read: How to cuddle someone – A guide to snuggle up and feel the love]

9. Be affectionate with her in public

Make your girlfriend feel special when you’re out with her in public. You don’t need to eat each other’s faces off to make a point that both of you are dating.

Hold her hand, brush her hair away from her face, make her feel like you’re completely attentive to her needs. And most importantly, don’t hold yourself back from behaving in a silly manner, if you can bring a smile on your girlfriend’s face. 

10. Make her laugh

Humor has a very important place in relationships. Even when both of you don’t have anything to talk about, a few funny lines or gestures can make the whole day feel like such a fun activity. [Read: How to be funny and make others love your company]

11. Make her feel secure

If you want to make your girlfriend feel happy in the relationship, you need to focus on the one thing girls desire most in a guy, his protective streak. When your girl feels safe and secure when you’re around, and when she feels like she can depend on you for anything, she’d instinctively feel happier to be in love with a great guy like you.

12. Give her your attention

When you go out with your girlfriend, do you stay close to her and make sure she’s feeling comfortable, or do you leave her aside and catch up with your own friends?

When your girlfriend is around, always focus on her needs first before you think of yours. If you need to spend a few minutes away from her to speak to your own friends, make sure she won’t feel uneasy when you aren’t around. Of course, she can take care of herself! BUT paying attention to her needs and making sure she’s okay with whatever it is you’re doing is one of the things a good boyfriend always does.

13. Communicate

Misunderstandings arise when there is a lack of communication in a relationship. If you want to have a happy relationship, and make your girlfriend happy in love, learn to express your feelings clearly.

And every now and then, spend a few hours talking about each other’s lives. When you spend a lot of time talking about your future together, both of you will feel more secure and loved in the relationship. [Read: What is pillow talk and how does it help you two talk better?]

14. Compliment her

Women love compliments. It makes them feel appreciated, especially if she’s made the effort to look nice in your arms. If you like something about your girlfriend, let her know about it. It doesn’t matter if it’s something about her personality or about the way she’s dressed. If you like it, say it, she’ll definitely be happier hearing it!

15. Let her know you’re lucky to have her

Did you have to woo your girl for a while before she finally accepted to date you? Always let her know that you still love her just as much as you did when both of you first started dating. And more than anything else, let her know that you appreciate her and still look at her the same way as you did when you first fell in love with her. If you feel lucky to date such a wonderful girl, remind her about it all the time.

16. Be chivalrous

Chivalry is one of those big positive traits in a guy that separates the ordinary men from the gentlemen. Always be chivalrous around your girlfriend, and learn to treat her like a princess. She’ll definitely love your courteous side and all the pampering that comes with it. [Read: The code of modern chivalry for men]

17. Involve her in your life

If you’re serious about your girlfriend and see her as a big part of your life, learn to involve her more in your daily life, be it for get-togethers or a night out with your friends. When you invite her to spend more time with you and your friends, you’re letting her know that you’re serious about her and the relationship. And emotional security always makes any girl in love a happy girlfriend!

18. Call her unexpectedly and sweet talk her

Love shouldn’t always be predictable, especially when it’s a happy surprise. Drop by at her place or at her office out of the blue with flowers or a small gift. Call her up when she least expects your call and remind her about how much you miss holding her in your hands right at that moment.

In love, if it’s a happy feeling, share it. It makes all the difference between a happy romance and a bored one. [Read: 15 reasons why your girlfriend may be getting bored of your relationship]

19. The little things in love

Big birthday surprises and anniversary celebrations are always memorable. But to keep a romance alive, you don’t always need those big gestures all the time. It’s the little things in love that hold a relationship together better than those big gestures. Indulge in sweet romantic gestures every now and then to please your girlfriend. It’ll definitely make her happy and appreciate the relationship a lot more. [Read: 25 sweet romantic gestures for daily life]

20. Get along with her friends and family

To a girl, her family and her close friends mean everything, because she shares all the intimate details of her life with them. And to a large extent, she listens to her friends and takes their opinions seriously. So make an effort to get along with her friends and treat them well. She’ll be happy to see that you’re a big hit with her loved ones.

21. Make big promises and keep them

Do you promise things to your girlfriend? Do you make little assurances about planning a surprise birthday party or about the future? Make promises all the time, that’s great, but make sure you fulfill them even if it takes years to do so.

Nothing feels more special to a girl than to know that her boyfriend is a man of his word. It makes her feel more secure. And most importantly, it makes your girlfriend feel happy to be in love with a trustworthy and dependable guy like you. [Read: 15 relationship goals most couples have no idea about]

22. Please her sexually

Yes, the sex is great and you love your girlfriend for it. But is it great for you, or is it great for her *and both of you*? Let’s be honest, it’s easier to please a guy sexually than it is to please a girl. Always focus on her pleasure when you make love to your girlfriend. 

Try your best to prolong the foreplay, at least until she’s ready to have sex. And once you do have sex, focus on her pleasure first and make sure she orgasms before you do. It’s not that hard to keep your girlfriend happy sexually, all it takes is a bit of giving and empathy to understand if she’s satisfied or not.

23. Surprise her with memorable gifts

Make sure you never forget your girlfriend’s special occasions, however trivial they may seem to you. And every now and then, show just how much you love her by giving her a memorable gift of love, be it a bling thing or a priceless gift like a heartfelt letter of love. [Read: The complete guide to writing a beautiful and heartwarming love letter]

Remember, this isn’t about how much you spend on the gift. It’s about the act of you thinking of her when you’re out by yourself. If you’re shopping and come across a little something that you think she’ll like, buy it for her. It’s a small and effortless gesture, but one that’ll make your girlfriend really happy! 

24. Don’t take her for granted

Most guys do this as the relationship progresses. You win over the girl, and now you think your work’s all done and dusted. You woo her for a month, and expect her to bed you and slave over you for the rest of her life. If you really want to make your girlfriend happy, never take her for granted.

Always treat her with the same love and respect you gave her during the first few months of your relationship. You may feel rusty and awkward to shower her with affection out of the blue. But try it, say or do something nice for her, and you’ll see just how happy you’ll make her with your small effort. [Read: 23 relationship tips for men to transform your love life forever]

25. Tell her you love her *with words*

Yes, she knows you love her. And you do love her. But is it so hard to express your love for her with words now and then? Maybe even once a day? With time, it’s easy to forget the little details. Tell her you love her, at least once a day when you kiss her. Every woman loves to hear her man tell her that.

26. Apologize when you’re wrong

You won’t be less of a man by doing that. We know a man’s ego is bigger than the Everest, and apologizing somehow makes him feel like he’s 6 inches tall. But really? Is that even mature? When you’re wrong, you’re wrong. If you can “man up” and apologize to her sincerely instead of trying to gaslight her into believing it was her fault, that shows that you actually care for her and lover her sincerely.

27. Don’t trivialize it when she expresses herself

If your girlfriend’s annoyed with you, or behaving “irrationally” because it’s that time of the month, don’t downplay it or treat her like a child. Just because you aren’t able to understand her frustrations, or just because she isn’t able to express herself without making herself appear vulnerable, doesn’t mean you should trivialize it. Empathize with her, and try to understand what’s bothering her from her point of view.

28. Make long term plans with her

One of the biggest signs you love her and want to make your girlfriend happy is when you make long term plans with her. It makes her feel secure knowing you still imagine her in your life many months or years from now. And it also gives her something to look forward to, relationship-wise. 

When you both have some free time together, just sit down with her and talk about the future together. Let your girlfriend know that you see her as an important part of your life, not just right this moment, but in future too.
