Relationship Advice: 5 Ego Boosts Your Man Needs Now

You know how good it feels when your guy compliments your new dress, notices your haircut, or talks you up to his friends or mom? He wants to feel like that too. We've got five easy, tried-and-true ways to stroke his ego—trust our relationship advice and we promise you'll have a happier, more confident man!


Women love compliments! Turns out, so do guys. They love it when women stroke their egos! The best relationship advice we ever got was to remind our sweetheart just how much we care about them. Here are five ego boosts you’ve got to give your man all the time!

1. Compliment his appearance.
Very few of us are married to, dating, or otherwise involved with a Brad Pitt look-a-like, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dole out a compliment or two to our guy every once in a while. Sure, your guy may be battling baldness, gaining a new gut, or nursing his love handles, but he’s your guy, so let him know that you find him attractive. Men are just as insecure as women are, they just don’t want anyone to know it. Knowing that you find him hot will boost your guy’s ego instantly!

2. Don’t fake it.
If your man isn’t satisfying you in the bedroom, that’s one thing, but if he’s doing his best, encourage him a little. Let him know that what he’s doing to you makes you feel good, but don’t fake it. He’ll be able to tell if you’re just going through the motions. Another great sexual ego boost for a guy is for a woman to initiate sex. When he comes home from work one day, rip his clothes off and have a late afternoon romp! He’ll love it and feel really good about himself, too!

3. Buy him something new.
Grab a sexy shirt off the rack or a pair of hot, designer jeans and surprise your man. He’ll feel great when he’s out on the town with you in his new duds!

4. Don’t withhold sex after a fight.
You and your guy are already feeling awful after fighting, so don’t hold sex over his head as a punishment, he’ll resent it and soon he’ll feel like you don’t want him. His self-esteem will plummet and his ego will be bruised. Avoid this by ironing out your problems and having terrific make up sex after the fight! This lets him know that no matter what, you always desire him.

5. Brag about him in front of your friends.
Nothing strokes a guy’s ego like a compliment in front of his friends. He’ll be walking tall with his head held high after a round of your great compliments!
