When it comes to relationships, language means everything. Just as the wrong words can make your lover mad, the right words can also open her heart. Even though no two women are exactly the same, there are some phrases that just about every girl on earth would love to hear. What Do Women Want From Their Men? Find out with Teeanime in this article.
1. “You Know What I Love About You?”
Then came something very specific. A licensed marriage and family therapist named Rebecca Burton says, “Women love details.” “We know that you love us, but why? With just a little more thought, sweet nothings can become sweet somethings.”
2. “You Look Amazing.”
Simple, but it works. Melissa Divaris Thompson, a licensed marriage and family therapist in New York City, says, “Women want to hear that they are beautiful.” It might sound shallow, but there’s a good reason for it: “It helps women feel more confident and loved,” she says. We have even more tips on how to make a woman like you here.
3. “You’re Right.”
Sometimes, you should just admit that she’s right and you’re wrong. Most women can see the value in being humble. You should also know how to say “I’m sorry.”
4. “We’re In This Together.”
Women like it when you tell them you’re serious. Obviously, this will only work if it’s true. Wyatt Fisher, Psy.D., a licensed clinical psychologist in Colorado, says, “Most women want to hear that you’re committed to them because that makes them feel safe.” “When you’re in a conflict and things feel uncertain, they need to hear that you’re in it for the long haul and you’re committed to working things out,” he says. You should also make sure you know how to keep that promise.
5. “Last Night Was Incredible.”
Kimberly Hershenson, an LMSW, says, “Women like to hear that they are good in bed.” Just like men, “they want to know that their sex life is making their partner happy and that they are giving their partner pleasure.”
6. “If You Want to Talk, I’m Here.”
Sahar Dorani, Psy.D., a licensed clinical psychologist, says, “Remind her that you are there for her emotionally whenever she needs anything.” “Love doesn’t have to be shown only through things or money,” she says. Check out these secrets of the best relationships as well.
7. “What’s The Most Meaningful Experience You’ve Ever Had?”
Questions are a great way to get to know someone, especially in the beginning of a relationship, but they can also be helpful later on. Anjhula Singh Bais, Ph.D., an international psychologist and author, says, “Your partner is not a copy of you; they are a whole different person.” “There will always be things I didn’t know about you even after all these years,” she says. “It’s up to you to find out those things.” “This brings you closer, and you’ll often be pleasantly surprised by the person sitting across from you.” Also, while you’re at it, learn more things that women love to hear on a first date.
8. “No, You Don’t Look Fat.”
Hold your eye roll. People, even men, need a little extra reassurance every now and then. Debra Rogers, a dating expert and the author of the breakup book He Did You a Favor, says that women want to know that even on their worst days, they are still beautiful and desirable. You should also never ask a woman if she’s gained weight. This should go without saying.
9. “I Don’t Understand, But I’m Going to Try.”
“Let’s be honest: it can be hard for men and women to talk to each other,” Burton says. “You might not always understand what she means, but you get points for trying.” Here’s more great advice on how to make your wife happy.
10. “How Can I Support You?”
“Women want relationships that help them grow, support their skills, and let them be their best selves,” says Shadeen Francis, a relationship therapist, educator, and author. “Women don’t want to just hear words; they want to see things get done. Partners who not only agree to do this but also check in with their partner to see what they need and follow through are likely to have happy partners.” You can also show your wife you care by doing these kind things.
11. “I’m Feeling…”
Then come your real feelings. Fisher says, “Women love to hear about your deep thoughts and feelings.” “Men often find it hard to let their weak sides show and open up. When they do, though, most women feel like they are very close to them.”
12. “You Are So Sexy.”
Women want to hear that you think they’re pretty, but they also want to hear that you think they’re sexy. Thompson says, “As a woman, you want to know and feel that your partner likes you.” Just don’t say any of the things you should never say to a naked woman.
13. “Can I Get Your Perspective On This?”
Rogers says it’s a good idea to show your partner that you really want her help and value her opinion. It shows that you have a lot of faith in her and what she can do.
14. “I Love You.”
Simple, right? Christine Baumgartner, a dating and relationship coach, says, “This is probably one of the least said groups of words that women want to hear often.” So if you’re at that point in your relationship, make sure to say it often and like you mean it. Even better, there are easy ways to say “I love you” that don’t involve words at all.
15. “I Made Plans for Us for Saturday Night.”
Baumgartner says, “Women feel cared for when their partner makes plans for them to do something.” Whether you go all out for a super-romantic date night or just plan to cook dinner and watch a movie at home, it will be much appreciated that you took the time to plan something fun for the two of you to do. Here’s what you should do before you and the lady go out on a big date night.
16. “I Love How You Look Without Makeup.”
Dorani says, “It’s true that physical beauty isn’t everything, but don’t wait until she’s wearing a full face of makeup to make her feel pretty.” Even when she’s wearing yoga pants, it’s still important to tell her she’s beautiful. “This will show her that she doesn’t have to spend an hour getting ready for people to notice her beauty,” she says.
17. “One of Your Best Qualities Is…”
Francis says, “Everyone wants to be loved, but appreciation is even more important.” Francis says that saying “thank you” is a great way to show appreciation, but you should also “spend some time telling her how much you appreciate her not just for what she’s done, but for who she is. She will love to hear it.”
18. “I Love Spending Time With You.”
Thompson says that women want to hear that they are fun to be with, no matter how long they have been with you. “Women feel more confident and secure in their relationship when they know that their partner thinks they are fun to be around.”
19. “I’ve Got This.”
“Even the most independent and capable woman wants to give up control sometimes,” says Burton. It’s not about making her feel like she can’t do something; it’s about making her feel like you want to help her. And since we’re talking about romantic gestures, here’s how to buy the right flowers for a date.
20. “The Truth Is…”
In all kinds of relationships, being honest is very important. Even if you just started dating, a woman will always appreciate honesty.
21. “Tell Me About Your Day.”
Baumgartner says, “If a man listens to a woman talk about her day, she’ll feel better afterward.” Not only does this show that you care, but it also gives her a chance to relax after a long day and let off some steam.
22. “I’m Sorry That Happened to You.”
Baumgartner also says that it’s best not to try to “fix” your partner’s problems if she’s had a bad day. Instead, showing that you understand what she is going through says a lot about how you feel about her.
23. “I Feel Like I Can Tell You Anything.”
Thompson says, “Women want to know that their partner is comfortable talking openly with them.” Knowing that you can talk to them about anything, no matter how sensitive, helps you trust each other more. “It helps make the bond stronger,” she says. Now, here’s how to make that love even stronger by proposing marriage.
24. Nothing At All
Sometimes, women just want you to step back and listen. If she wants to talk and you can’t help her, let her talk about whatever is bothering her.
25. “I Respect You Because…”
“Pop culture tells us that romance is everything, and we believe it so much that we don’t realize it’s not realistic to try to be like the movies,” says Bais. “Respect is something that women want because it is a solid foundation for relationships and especially for women when it comes to sexism and misogyny.” Instead of just telling her she did a good job or helped you out in some way, tell her what you like about the way she thinks or how she gets things done.
