#2 Make him feel secure. While men may have epic egos, they’re also extremely fragile when it comes to the matters of the heart. They feel threatened easily, and go into an insecure shell. Avoid making him feel insecure in the right way and he’ll love you more. [Read: How to make a jealous partner not so jealous]

#11 Give him his space. Men are different from women when it comes to space. Most women are fine with having people around all the time.

#12 Support him when he’s down without criticizing him. An “I told you so” is ego shattering. When your man is down on the ground, don’t kick him in the groin. It may seem like the perfect time to criticize him and his bad decisions, but hold that thought. You’ll only make him hate himself and you.
#13 Ask his help now and then. All men think they’re intellectuals with exceptional problem solving abilities. As long as you’re listening to his opinion with your eyes wide, he’ll swell with pride and love.
#14 Get helpless in his arms when you’re hurt. Feeling down and helpless? Walk up to your man without saying a word and just hold him tight. Your man will be overwhelmed with love and affection, and not to mention, delirious happiness because he’s the one that makes you feel better.
#15 Look like a million bucks around him. Look sexy when you’re with him. Getting naked should still be a treat, not a regular occurrence around the house. Dress well and make sure eyes turn when you’re in his arms. [Read: How to look sexy without trying]
#16 Compliment him. Men love compliments, they just pretend like they don’t. Compliment your man for his physique and his intellect. He’ll be happy to know you notice.
#17 Don’t emasculate your man. Don’t shrivel your man’s ball bag by making him fell less like a man when he’s done something wrong. Don’t yell at him in public or put him down when he takes a few decisions. If you keep cutting him down from under, he’ll just end up looking for an affair to feel more like a man.
#18 Don’t hit him below the belt unless you really have to. Don’t bring up his exes, his mother or his lousy job when you’re trying to pick a fight with him or trying to hurt him for hurting you. [Read: The right way to fight fair in a relationship]
#19 Stand up for your man. If your man is cornered or helpless, step into the warzone and fight his fight for him. Don’t be surprised if you see your man’s eyes well up with happy tears for finding a woman as awesome as you.
#20 Respect him. All of us need respect. When you’re in love, it’s easy to talk stupid or put down your man in jest, but be careful where to draw the line. Never ridicule him or put him down in public. Let him know you respect him, even if you pull his leg now and then. [Read: How to think like a man and impress your guy]
