Little Things She “Really” Wants

May 28, 2008
I got this from a Yahoo article on what guys can do for women to show they care. Yup. So I was interested to see your thoughts on these ‘tips’. Agree? Disagree? Would you add anything else?

It’s not the big things that make her happy; it’s paying attention to the little details and showing you care that is really meaningful. She doesn’t necessarily need lavish gifts — she needs to know you’re thinking about her.

Here are some ideas to get you started doing these “little things” she really wants:

1. Rub her feet instead of asking her if she wants you to rub her feet. Make it look like you want to do it.

2. Make her dinner one night. Don’t ask her if she wants you to make dinner. Make her dinner before she gets home.

3. Light a candle so that she arrives home to a nice environment instead of coming home to the glaring lights of the television and other things.

4. Send her a text in the middle of the day telling her “I miss your smile from this morning” or “Last night was amazing!” or “The conversation we had last night was great.

5. Send an eCard in the middle of the day… something cute to remind her how much you really care about her.

6. If she’s going on a business trip, offer to drive her to the airport or pick her up to make her life that much easier.

7. Let her have control of the remote control. Don’t monopolize it for a change. Just give it to her and let her actually sit there and enjoying watching one of her shows. Then you can share one of her interests by watching it with her.

8. Offer to iron one of her shirts or take her clothes to the dry cleaner.

9. Clean up the bathroom without being asked. Don’t just sit there and ignore the mess around the toilet. If you know it drives her crazy to see water splashed all around the sink, dry that area after you use it.

10. If you work out together, enjoy it with her instead of rushing through your own workout and then not letting her workout at the same time.

11. Take a shower together, then wash her hair, scrub her back, and give her a spa treatment. Do this and enjoy it!

12. The next time she gives you a massage, give her a massage the next day. Offer it! Don’t just say you’ll give her a massage…do it!

13. Surprise her by making plans. Tell her, “We’re going out tonight honey.” You can even just go out for a drink or dinner somewhere. It’s taking the initiative that’s important.

14. Decide on and set aside one night a week as date night. Have a date like when you first started dating.

15. Call her in the middle of the day and just say hello. Don’t wait for her to call you.
Uh. Tip 11? Seriously. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    11 = YES

    Another addition is something I did last night but don’t do often enough… fill up her car with gas.

  2. May 28, 2008 8:11 am

    wow…11 would not go over well at home…but i really like #14, we have been trying to do that lately and it has been a big help in keeping stress levels down and communication lines open!!!

    Don’t do them all in one day should be added. I like #13. #9 – YES! Toliet stuff grosses me out!

  4. May 28, 2008 8:37 am

    I am a spoiled rotten brat! I almost feel bad about it. naaaaaaaa I am smiling because my hubs does all this stuff for me, and it was not always this way, but we work at it and it is amazing how far the little things go! And for those of you who didn’t like # 11 try it you’ll like it! ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. May 28, 2008 8:42 am

    HA! I get most of these from my hubby now…but he could definitely get better at 1, 2, & 3. Just emailed him this blog post.

    Here’s one that wasn’t on the list:
    when throwing your dirty underwear accross the room, be sure to ask her to duck first. – Now that is LOVE!

    Big yes on number 11. Jer is quite the romantic and often surprises me with these types of things. ๐Ÿ™‚ He makes life fun and after 13 years of marriage we still date and surpise eachother with little things like this. 11, is definately at the top of the list! ๐Ÿ™‚

    In reading number 4, it was a reminder to me that…I have to smile so he’ll miss it, I need to make last night amazing so he’ll think it was amazing…and I have to make time for conversation so he’ll think our talk was great!…..

    OH MY! But that brought back memories! And what memories they were!

    But they forgot poems and her favorite flowers–given NOT to “make up,” but just given. Totally random.

    And blindfolds and baby oil.
    (And that’s all I’m saying about that. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ )

    I should really stop typing now, but…

    Oh. Yeah. And “Earl Grey.” They forgot “Earl Grey.” ๐Ÿ˜‰
    (Sorry. That’s a secret, too. ๐Ÿ˜• )

    Not to mention 15 words a man can say to make a marriage work:

    1. I love you.
    2. You look great.
    3. Can I help?
    4. It’s my fault.
    5. Let’s eat out.

    I think if men AND women followed all of those tips and were concerned about their spouse’s needs/wants more than their own…our divorce rate would drop dramatically.

    But…what do I know? I’m single:)

  11. May 28, 2008 9:20 am

    Here is my #11 issue(s)

    I absolutely LOVE my private time. The shower and all potty moments are my private time.

    And. the two people in the shower thing just doesn’t work. someone’s always cold without any warm water streaming down their exposed lil bodies.

    AND, men…can you really do any of these things w/out the BIG thing in mind??? Can it be done w/out ulterior motive? Not that that’s bad ๐Ÿ˜‰ at all ๐Ÿ˜€ but how often can you do these things with the intention of just wanting to do something nice?

    The ulterior motive is about the nicest thing i can think of……. ๐Ÿ˜† He would have to worry about ME being the one to just let him #11 me without an ulterior motive! ๐Ÿ˜†

  14. May 28, 2008 9:37 am

    k, so i’m eating a banana and it got me thinking about ‘mating’…my issue w/11 isn’t whether or not ‘that’ takes place (we’ve got almost 17 yrs of lessons under our belts – we’re doin more than fine there ๐Ÿ˜€ ) it’s, can it be done with the guys initiative w/out that intent?

  15. May 28, 2008 9:38 am

    hold the phone. i just answered my own question

    nothing a guy does is w/out “that” in mind.

    silly me


  16. May 28, 2008 9:55 am


    I was TOTALLY thinking the same thing about #11….. uhhh, no thanks!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ That one was just weird.

    And no, NOTHING a guy does is without that in mind. Seriously.

    oh Tam, this is too much! You have got me laughing hard this morning. Yah, #11….come on. now a bath on the other hand….
    how about him taking me on a date to one of the first places we kissed….only this time he said “with no curfew, and no restrictions.” That is his plan for tonight…..under the canopy of his truck, in sleeping bag (s) watching the stars and…..holding hands. tee hee!
    love, Storie

  22. May 28, 2008 10:16 am

    I could write a fictional story about a guy with no ulterior motives in mind with any of the items listed. Even number 11. But I don’t think anyone would buy it. Not even Lifetime.

    Can we reword # 1. “Make it look like you want to do it.” ==> “Enjoy bringing her relief and let her see that.”

    And yes NorEaster! Write a poem.

    Plus take walks. Hold hands.

    And while in the shower let her have 90% of the water. I mean get real, your not in there for the shower.

    I know it, kind of mushy, huh?
    Then there was the 10 days of anniversary he did on our 10th year…(almost 9 years ago!)
    He investigated what each year represented: paper, cotton, wood etc., and each day he gave me a corresponding gift with a poem attached. Believe me he was not a romantic when we first married. That has come after living with a sensitive romantic for 19 years! But he has been willing to meet in the middle!
    As far as the blog URL, is there anything I can do from my end to make a difference?
    I am so blog-illiterate, but I am hoping to get up to speed.

    bananas and mating and # 11… ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    love you made my day!

  27. May 28, 2008 10:30 am

    Ok, now…….I feel like guys are getting a bit of a bashing here so it’s my turn to weigh in. Let me say, unequivocally, that I am perfectly capable of showing my wife that I love her without the deed being in mind. I often do things like those listed for my wife just because and not because I have an ulterior motive. Now, I admit, showering with her or giving her a massage makes it more DIFFICULT to set aside ulterior motives but it CAN be done. To me, showing my love for my wife in these ways with an underlying motive cheapens the value of the gesture. So….

    GUYS: Do these things for your wives with NO expectation that it will lead to doing the nasty. Do them for no other reason than showing that you love and value them.

    GIRLS: Stop assuming that there’s an ulterior motive to your man doing something nice. Cuz nothing kills the desire to do those things quicker than having our reasons questioned.

    And, Tam – you have successfully ruined bananas for me….forever! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    16. Flush the frigging toilet after you dropped off a few monster turds!

    17. Put the shoes IN the closet, not BY the closet!

    (18. It places the lotion in the basket.)

    Just flush and I am happy…

  43. May 28, 2008 11:06 am

    When it says “do this and enjoy it” does it mean by doing this you will enjoy what comes later or enjoy giving her the spa treatment?

    My wife and I usually designate Wednesday as date night. That is the day the dog is worn out from his day camp. I love Wednesdays

  44. May 28, 2008 11:13 am

    Step up to the tub
    It ain’t no disgrace
    Just pull up your sleeves
    And get up in place
    Then scoop up the water
    And rub it on your face
    An’ go blud-dle-ud-dle-ud-dle

    Pick up the soap
    Now don’t try to to bluff
    Work up a lather
    An’ when ya got enough
    Get your hands full of water
    Ya snort an ya snuff
    An’ go blud-dle-ud-dle-ud-dle

    Ya douse an souse
    Ya rub and scrub
    Ya sputter and splash all over the tub
    You may be cold and wet when your done
    But ya gotta admit it’s goot clean fun

    So splash all ya like
    It ain’t any trick
    As soon as your through
    You’ll feel mighty slick
    Bunch of old nanny goats
    Ya make me sick, goin’
    An’ go blud-dle-ud-dle-ud-dle

    Now scrub good an’ hard
    It can’t be denied
    That he’ll look mighty cute
    As soon as he’s dried
    Well it’s good for the soul
    And it’s good for the hide
    To go blud-dle-ud-dle-ud-dle

  103. May 28, 2008 3:39 pm

  104. May 28, 2008 3:41 pm

    i might need to keep it safely tucked away in the alece-vault then!

  105. May 28, 2008 3:42 pm

    Heheh, I don’t NEED to know. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think I’ll print the list out, hang it on the fridge, and leave little notes like… “I’ll take a number one please, with a side of four” or “eights lookin’ good today babe, and I’ll take a number 11, heavy on the oil….. ” ๐Ÿ˜†

  109. May 28, 2008 4:48 pm

    @Deb- great idea, then I can choose what #’s i feel like today… YAY! oh no! does that mean that I am control freaking again?? is there any chance that there is a just a small part of submission that requires me to control freak? dang! and I do it so well ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  110. May 28, 2008 4:49 pm

    There’s a pretty heart there!!!

    Man this conversation got a wee pee interesting!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. May 28, 2008 5:15 pm

    I can see it! bummer!

  114. May 28, 2008 5:20 pm

    Hi Tam! I figured since I chat with you on Monday’s I’d stop by and check out your blog and I guess I hit it on a good day! What a great post and the comments – I’ve been laughing since I started reading! Everything on the list looks good to me (but that’s what happens when your man is out of the country) – but I totally agree, i’m not feeling #11!!!

    & I like the idea of the bikini wax falling under a different post on โ€œlittle things for himโ€ – that was a good one!:)

  115. May 28, 2008 5:29 pm

    Can you see it on other’s posts? ๐Ÿ™‚

  116. May 28, 2008 6:51 pm


    Do you see any of the above as hearts?

  117. May 28, 2008 6:56 pm



  118. May 28, 2008 6:56 pm

    maybe i’m heartless.

    oh no!

    im heartless!!!

    breathe tam.


  119. May 28, 2008 7:08 pm

    You’re a sweet heart ๐Ÿ™‚

  120. May 28, 2008 7:52 pm

    I have to admit I am spoiled in a few of these things. My hubby loves rubbing my feet and always asks me if I want him to when I’m tired. And he cooks when I’ve had a long day without me even saying anything. In fact he asks me what I want to eat!

    I think my hubby would think 3,4, and 5 are so “cliche” and corny but I would love it if he did those things occasionally. He’s very anti-television-romance if that makes any sense?

    He always drives me to the airport because we share a car HA!

    And remote control…hmmm…in all fairness, I really don’t care for television all that much. Now the computer……….there should probably be a reverse one for me not monopolizing the computer and letting him use it ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Aww I feel so bad, I’m always asking my husband to do romantic things and he’s quite the romantic according to this list. He loves to iron and he cleans the bathroom when it’s the day to clean around. And he does a wonderful job too *clap clap*

    Hmmm this is turning out to be a running commentary on all the numbers. SORRY. I am monopolizing your comments.

    I definitely wish for more surprise dates and stuff. My husband is a much more let’s plan this together type person and wants to know where I want to go or what I want incase his surprise doesn’t turn out accurate. Whereas I LOVE surprises and the thought put into them. Hmmmm…maybe I should email him the link to this post with all its comments…..

    LOVE YOU TAM! Thanks for enduring my overly-long comment.

  121. May 28, 2008 8:18 pm

    Selena – ๐Ÿ™‚ awww!

    Les – i love your comments! Seems like most the other men who commented, or were commented about, were really only interested in tip #11. So your groom gets the…

    Mac Daddy Romance Award!!


  122. May 28, 2008 8:25 pm

    AWWWWW I just told him the deal and he said “ah thank you” and had this huge baby-who-just-got-some-candy-grin on his face.

    I think he’ll agree to come to Oregon now YIPEEEEEEEEEEEE

  123. May 28, 2008 8:28 pm

    yay!!!! i’ll get your room ready!!!

  124. May 28, 2008 8:49 pm

    I’m starting a video card trading group

  125. May 28, 2008 9:45 pm

    there are tons of card trading groups out there…
    I’m consulting hallmark now!

    #7… The Remote Controllll???

    ( in best Chuck Heston (God rest his soul) voice):” From my cold, Dead HAND!!!”

    There are some places a man just cannot go!

    Add: Always keep a large economy pack of Oreo’s hidden for ’emergencies’!

    Add: Help her redesign her blog when she drops subtle(?) hints.

    Add: remind her of the ways she is truly beautiful, the things she does SO well and why you Love her so much, as often as you possibly can. Some women just don’t ‘get’ those things unless someone else reminds them often enough!?

    It’s all about reassurance of doubt people!

    There are others but time is limited atm.


  127. May 28, 2008 10:15 pm

    My husband does most of those things plus laundry!
    Re #1: his words…”Give me a hoof”

  128. May 29, 2008 4:33 am

    I know I’m way late to this discussion but there are some obvious clarifications that need to be made. Apparently, the woman I live with @brandiandboys thinks I have bad aim. For the record I only miss at 2am in the morning and I think this is excusable.

    We did catch Jett the night before last in the middle of the night peeing down the staircase. He was totally asleep! Now that is bad aim.

    Sorry babe, but this just cost you #11!

  129. May 29, 2008 5:01 am

    Mmama and I made this list! Well, most of them! The one thing that we like most is the “touching” – anytime any place – we love to be with each other!

  130. May 29, 2008 5:05 am

    @cathi stegall – When you first mentioned ‘video cards’ yesterday I thought of dual nVidia SLI GPU GeForceยฎ GX2-based graphics cards… and I was thinking, “Man, Mr. Cathi Stegall is sooo lucky!”

    Then I thought, “I hate him.” So your comment this morning went a long way in restoring our relationship. Thanks.

  131. May 29, 2008 6:17 am

    Fart less. Cry more. That would make me happy.

    Oh, and I can’t believe my pastor and his wife come over to your blog to make cases for and against #11. Too funny!

  132. May 29, 2008 7:28 am

    stegall’s such an entrepreneur!

    Love – i’m thinking you should definitely make your own list. I’ like!

    Joni – “Give me a hoof!” Hahahahaha!!! Not quite as romantice as Joe Louthan “Sit down to next to her and tell her (with a smile), โ€œGimme your feet, woman.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Pete – Peeing down the staircase!?!?! ๐Ÿ˜† Wow! I’m sure that was messy but could you imagine if he tried peeing UP the staircase ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Papa – Brent and I LOVE being with eachother too. He’s my gift!!

    Ric – ๐Ÿ˜‰ Phew!

    Melissa – AMEN!!! Fart less for Pete’s sake! (not YOU Pete) And I suppose if you wanta know anything else about your Pastor and his family you and I should connect and I’ll bait’em over here ๐Ÿ˜‰

  133. May 31, 2008 11:07 pm

    So I have to tell this somewhere, and if I put in on my own blog I know my mother in law and my mom would blush badly when I explained #11….

    #11….. all Jake did was make my hair into soapy hair sculptures. ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    He gave me HORNS!! And then tried to give me dog ears and even growled like a dog. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Seriously. And the worst part….I was CRACKING up the whole time b/c I SOOOOO knew this was going on a blog somewhere!!! ๐Ÿ˜†

  134. June 2, 2008 10:26 am

    Jake actually makes sounds ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
