In any relationship, there are going to be times when your boyfriend has good days and bad days. It’s inevitable and human nature, even for guys. It may seem like your guy might not respond well if he’s in a bad mood, but it never hurts to try. Believe it or not, even though your guy may seem like he doesn’t want to express his feelings after a bad day, that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t appreciate you making an effort to console him. If you are looking for a way to cheer up your guy, check out these 8 cute ways to get your boyfriend to smile after a bad day.
Give him a hug.
It may sound simple, but a nice long embrace after a hard day can totally make your guy melt. Studies have proven that a hug can actually boost oxytocin levels, which alleviate feelings of anger, loneliness and isolation.
Let him vent.
Maybe your guy needs to talk about the way he feels, but hasn’t felt comfortable with anyone else he’s interacted with throughout his day. Give him a listening ear with no judgment, letting him vent and release the negativity he’s been holding onto.
Make him dinner.
A home cooked meal is a guaranteed way to show your boyfriend that you care and make him feel loved. Try out a new dish, or make his favorite to make him feel extra special.
Give him a compliment.
When you first start dating a person, you likely complimented each other all day long. But as you grow accustomed to your boyfriend, you probably stopped noticing things about them, and thus, the compliments screeched to a halt. Tell your guy how handsome he is and how much you appreciate him and watch his smile light up like the night sky.
Brag on him.
If your guy has had a rough day, he may not be feeling the best about himself. Give him an ego boost, reminding him how wonderful he is and how much he is accomplished thus far. This will give him the inspiration and support to keep pushing.
Give him a back rub.
We all hold a lot of tension in our bodies unknowingly, and your guy is no exception to this. The mere physical touch of his favorite person and the therapeutic effects of a massage will definitely ease the tension from his bad day.
Leave him love notes.
If you live together or have access to his place, go in before he gets home and place little love notes around the house for him to find later. Write insider jokes or romantic one-liners and he will feel so surprised and loved when he finds them.
Have his favorite treat delivered to work.
If your guy has hectic work days, think ahead and send him his favorite treat for lunch. If you really want to brighten his day, you can even hand deliver it to his office. This thoughtful gesture is sure to put a huge smile on his face.
