#5 When your hair is a complete mess. You might think he loves your hair all dolled up and fantastic looking after you’ve spent an hour perfecting it, but they honestly prefer you with your hair all messy and tied in a bun at the top of your head. To them, the real and raw you is so cute.
#6 Kissing him when you think he’s sleeping—and he’s not. Raise your hand if you do this, ladies. You look over and he looks to be sleeping so you just lean over and plant a soft kiss on his cheek or forehead before slipping off to sleep yourself. The kicker? He’s not really asleep, and he absolutely loves this. [Read: 25 things guys find really sexy and attractive about a girl]

They love seeing you stand up for what you believe in. [Read: How to be a strong independent woman that men love]
#9 When they catch you looking at them lovingly when you’re out and about. When he looks across the room at an event and catches your eye because you’re already looking at him. He loves this because it shows just how much you’re invested in him even with all of those other people around.
#10 When you leave little secretive notes for him. If he’s leaving for the day and you slip a little note into his jacket pocket for him to find later, he really likes it. So long as no one else reads it and makes fun of him for it.
#11 Any little quirks that make you unique. If you have to have the towels adjusted a certain way or you need to have the books set up in a specific way on your coffee table, that’s what guys like about girls. They love your little quirks that make you unique and unlike anyone else.
#12 When you press your freezing toes against their warm skin. Admittedly, many guys act annoyed by this and might even throw a fake fuss about your freezing little toes, but they actually like being the person to warm you up. [Read: Mushy ways to show someone you love them without words]
#13 How you unconsciously play with your hair when you’re nervous/antsy. Even if it means he has hair all over his place, he loves watching you twist, pull, and play with your hair when you’re nervous, concentrated, or antsy. Guys like this about girls because it’s just a natural thing you do that they can’t relate to.
#14 The smell of your hair when you rest your head on his shoulder. This is assuming you wash your hair with great smelling stuff. My boyfriend always comments on how my hair smells. It always makes me smile because it’s something I know he loves even if it’s not a typical thing to like about a girl. [Read: How to attract men in a way they can’t resist]
#15 When you can’t open things and get frustrated. This isn’t only really cute for guys, but it’s also really funny. They like how it makes them feel like they serve a purpose to you because you’ll typically go to them to open something that’s pretty sticky. Plus, they love how you look when you get all frustrated.
