101 Ways To Tell Your Wife, "I Love You"

Updated on May 30, 2013


You knew that she was special the moment you first laid eyes on her. It was a dream come true the day she said, "Yes!" Now that she belongs to you, it's easy to let your love life play second fiddle to your responsibilities. Not that you want it that way, it's just that life is so demanding. There is great news. By just taking a few moments of each day to fulfil the needs of your marriage, you and your wife can feel like newlyweds for life!

  1. LEAVE CANDY FOR HER TO FIND And I'm not talking about a 3 Musketeers bar. (Unless that's what she likes). Buy a pretty box of chocolates. Leave them in her car or some other place that she's sure to find them. Tuck a little "I love you" note inside to increase the effect.
  2. DON'T TEASE HER FOR PRIMPING She wants to look nice for you! If you constantly go on about how much time she spends on her hair or manicures, she may take it that you don't appreciate her femininity or her effort to look pretty. Let her know she's beautiful when she fixes herself up.
  3. KISS HER FOR AT LEAST 6 SECONDS Forget the little peck on your way out the door in the morning. Give her a kiss that will stay with her all day! Kissing for at least six seconds doesn't take that long but it makes for a much more meaningful kiss.
  4. HOLD HANDS Wives feel special when their husbands reach over and take their hand. It's just a simple gesture, but it goes a long way.
  5. MAIL HER A LETTER E-mail has its place, but for a woman, getting a letter in the mailbox addressed to her from her hubby...well now, that's just too romantic!
  6. SHOW HER APPRECIATION FOR EVERYDAY THINGS You'll leave the waitress a tip, but what about the lady who is there to wait on you 24/7? Surprise her as she clears the supper table by thanking her and genuinely complimenting the meal. Praise her when the house looks and smells nice or just for the things that she does everyday. It will mean the world to her to hear your appreciation and make her want to do more!
  7. REENACT YOUR FIRST DATE Tell your wife that you're taking her out. Tell her that you think it would be fun to do everything just like you did on your first date then try to reenact it! The bonus is that you won't have to take her home to her father, you can take her home with you!
  8. DEDICATE A SONG TO HER Call your local radio station and have them to play a song for your sweetie! Tell them why you love her and her name, and have them to repeat it over the air!
  9. COMMUNICATE WITH HER Your wife wants in on your life. Tell her about your day or even your hopes and dreams for the future. Talk about the kids, or whatever happens to come to mind. Just communicate!
  10. WHISPER IN HER EAR Get close to your wife and whisper those sweet words of love in her ear. Try whispering something about your private love life in the middle of a public place and watch her blush!
  11. HAVE FLOWERS DELIVERED TO HER Take some time out of your lunch break to swing by the flower shop. Have the florist deliver her flowers to your home or at her place of work, or deliver them yourself!
  12. PUT YOUR ARM AROUND HER Put your arm around your wife while she's sitting next to you or while walking side by side.
  13. CARESS HER Gently caress your wife's hair with your hand or her face with your lips. She loves to feel your touch.
  14. PRIASE HER IN FRONT OF OTHERS Let your wife hear you brag on her while you're talking to others. She may blush or say something back, but secretly she's feeling proud that you're her man.
  15. PRAISE HER TO HER FACE Tell your wife that you appreciate all that she does and the love that she shows to you.
  16. TAKE HER ON A SURPRISE DATE Secretly arrange for someone to watch your children, if you have them, then surprise your wife by taking her out for a night that she'll not soon forget!
  17. SAY YOU'RE SORRY You're not too macho to say, "I'm sorry" if you're in the wrong. In fact you'll be a much bigger man if you do.
  18. LEAVE THE STRESS OF WORK AT WORK I'm not saying that you can't talk to your wife about your job or the things that bother you. I'm saying that if you've had a bad day, don't take it out on your wife and family. It's easy to be grumpy after a long day of work. Don't snap at the people who love you. If you need to vent your frustrations, talk them out with your wife. She'll be glad to lend an ear if you need to talk.
  19. DON'T HIDE ANYTHING FROM YOUR WIFE Be open and honest with your wife about everything. Keep an open line of communication between the two of you at all times. Keeping things from her, even small things, can hurt a relationship. If she should find out from another source, she would feel hurt and disappointed that you didn't feel like you could share with her. This could ultimately damage her trust in you as well.
  20. TAKE CARE OF THE CARS Make sure that your vehicles are in tip top shape at all times so your wife isn't left stranded. Don't expect her to go to the dirty garages to get the oil changed and repairs done, do them yourself, or take them in for her.
  21. COMPLIMENT HER Everyone needs a compliment now and then, but many wives need a little extra reassurance to make sure that she's still special in your eyes. A compliment won't cost you anything, but for your wife, it could be priceless!
  22. BUY HER A FEMININE GIFT Buy your wife a gift that will make her feel feminine, like her favorite perfume, or a pretty nightgown.
  23. DON'T FORGET SPECIAL OCCASIONS Put it on your phone schedule, hang a calendar in your vehicle, do what you must, but DON'T forget your anniversary, her birthday, or Valentine's Day!
  24. ALWAYS KISS HER GOODNIGHT Never even close your eyes at night until you've kissed your wife goodnight. (For at least 6 seconds).
  25. FINISH HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS Too many times husbands work so hard all week that they don't feel like keeping up the repairs at home. This is understandable, but remember, it often makes your wife's work harder too. If you could work on things for just awhile, and aim to finish at least one project per month, it could make your whole household run smoother.
  26. DON'T BE NEGATIVE Don't go around griping or nitpicking the things your wife does or don't do. Try to be more pleasant. Look on the positive side of things. When your negative, it makes everything look worse than it really is.
  27. TAKE A SHOWER TOGETHER Here's a way to get clean and have fun at the same time! Jump in the shower, mesh together, and do a lot of kissing! Be sensitive if your wife feels insecure, and make sure that you reassure her often.
  28. SHOW PATIENCE DURING HORMONAL TIMES If your wife gets a little hard to live with during certain times of the month, be patient. This is especially important too if she's pregnant or a new mother. She can't control her emotions very well during these times, and will need your support.
  29. ADMIT IT WHEN YOU'RE WRONG If you are in the wrong, admit it. Don't pass it off like it's no big deal, or make excuses for yourself.
  30. LOOK INTO HER EYES While talking to or hugging your wife, look her straight in the eyes while cupping her face in your hand. She may feel shy and try to look away, but don't confuse this in thinking she don't like it. Gently insist she look at you, then slowly lean down and kiss her. (For at least 6 seconds).
  31. SACRIFICE FOR HER Put aside something that you want so that you can give to your wife. Usually, this is what wives do. They'll put aside their own needs to make sure their family gets everything they need first. Make sure your wife is taking good care of herself too.
  32. WRITE HER A LOVE POEM Put your romantic thoughts into a rhyme that your wife will cherish forever! Not a poet? Just write down your feelings the best you can, she'll love it!
  33. GIVE HER A MASSAGE Grab the oil and lotion, then grab your wife! Give her a full body massage and help her relax. (Try to at least get past her shoulders before moving on to "other things)."
  34. PLAY A GAME TOGETHER Bring out the board games or play a game of tennis. Playing a game together can help keep the two of you close. If she beats you, admit it. Don't say, "Oh, I just let you win."
  35. CALL IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE Don't make your wife worry about you, or let dinner get cold. Take out 5 minutes to phone her if you see you're going to be late.
  36. WASH THE DISHES FOR HER You don't have to clean the whole house, but just doing one chore such as the dishes once in a while, or at least cleaning up after yourself, will help her out a lot.
  37. PICK HER FLOWERS OK, you've sent her flowers, but why not pick some wildflowers yourself? Stop the car and pick some by the roadside, then gently tuck one behind your wife's ear and kiss her neck.
  38. TAKE HER TO A ROMANTIC PLAY Skip the movie and head out to a theatrical play. If there's not a good romantic one showing, find one with some good, clean humor.
  39. PLAY A KISSING GAME Lock lips and see who can hold out the longest!
  40. GIVE HER A NIGHT OFF Watch the kids while she heads out to shop for awhile. Throw in a few extra bucks so that she can buy herself something special.
  41. DON'T MENTION HER WEIGHT No matter what size your wife may be, bringing up her weight is definitely a no no.
  42. DONT ARGUE OVER FINANCES If money gets tight, be very careful not to argue or shift blame. Together, and in a business-like fashion, explore ways that you can pay off your debts. If things spin out of control, consider financial counseling. Your marriage is worth more than money.
  43. LEAVE LOVE NOTES IN UNEXPECTED PLACES Try leaving love notes in odd places that she'll be sure to see, such as under windshield wipers, inside the refrigerator, inside a CD case or even on toilet paper! A good example would be to put one on the light switch that says, "You turn me on."
  44. BE HONEST NEVER EVER lie to your wife, even if it seems harmless. Trust is one of the most important factors in a marriage - don't break it!
  45. RENEW YOUR WEDDING VOWSAlthough we know that the first vows are good for life, still, taking your wife to a chapel on your anniversary, or any day, and renewing your vows will let her know that you'd marry her all over again.
  46. WORSHIP TOGETHER Find time to worship and pray with your wife. Our lives our made up of three parts. Body, mind, and spirit. You need to connect in all three ways to really be close.
  47. RESPECT HER Showing respect is another important factor in a marriage. Don't degrade her, yell at her, or misuse her.
  48. PROVIDE FOR HER Do your best to provide for your wife and family. You don't have to buy a castle, just make sure it's nice and comfortable and there's food on the table. If your wife chooses to help out that's OK, but it is your place to provide, so don't expect her to fill that role.
  49. TELL HER YOU NEED HER Let her know that your life just wouldn't be complete if you didn't have her. Tell her that you not only want her in your life, but that you need her.
  50. LET HER CRY Every woman needs a good cry now and then; sometimes she can tell you why, and sometimes she can't. Just make sure you don't get irritated at her or make fun of her. This will just make everything worse. Take her in your arms and hold her until everything is better. This may be the very thing she needed anyway.
  51. DON'T TEASE HER TOO MUCH It's OK to tease now and then, but try to keep it at a minimum. Don't excessively tease her in front of others, and never tease in a degrading fashion.
  52. DON'T CORRECT HER IN FRONT OF OTHERS If you feel that your wife has got a little out of line or has done something that you disapprove of, it's OK to talk it over with her in private, but never jump her in front of others; especially your children. Make sure that even if you're firm, that you're loving.
  53. BE FAITHFUL Always make sure that you're faithful to your wife in every angle. Keep your body, your eyes, and your thoughts only for her. If you are facing any temptation, remove yourself from the source. Be open with your wife about your needs so that she can be the one to fill them.
  54. GIVE HER LOTS OF CUDDLE TIME Wives like to be cuddled and kissed without sex sometimes. Try sitting in front of a campfire or lay under the stars and just take your time.
  55. LISTEN Sometimes wives just need to talk - about anything. Show interest and listen to her when she talks. If she's upset, show concern. If she's happy, laugh with her. Try to pick up on clues that she may be dropping in her conversation to let you know her needs.
  56. BE FORGIVING If your wife should do something that offends you, be quick to forgive. Holding hard feelings can ruin a marriage. Let her know in a heartfelt way how she made you feel, then let it go.
  57. BE THE LEADER OF YOUR HOME Many wives don't want their husbands to be the leader because they dominate. But if you're a good leader, you will also serve. Home leadership is meant to be the husbands role, and if you do it right, it will take an unnecessary load off of your wife. Set reasonable guidelines and goals for your household. Ask your wife for advice too. Sometimes a woman can see things not only in the practical sense, like most men do, but she also uses her heart to even things out.
  58. BE CLEAN AND NEAT Keep yourself groomed, clean, and smelling nice.
  59. PROVIDE SECURITY Let your wife feel secure in your love without worrying if you will still love her from day to day.
  60. FIND OUT WHAT HER NEEDS ARE SEXUALLY Your wife's sexual needs sometimes vary a great deal from yours. Find out how and where she likes to be touched, and what she expects from sex, and try to fill her needs.
  61. HELP OUT WHEN SHE DOESN'T FEEL WELL If your wife is sick or has just had a bad day, try helping with her household duties and with the kids. Make sure she can get plenty of rest.
  62. DON'T COMPARE HER IN A NEGATIVE WAY Don't say things like, "You gripe just like your Aunt Thelma." Comparison often hurts self esteem.
  63. TAKE HER ON WEEKEND TRIPSTake your wife to a romantic resort for the weekend. If your budget's a little tight, consider checking into a hotel, even if it's local, so the two of you can get away from the familiar and just enjoy each other.
  64. BE VERBAL WHEN MAKING LOVE When making love, describe aloud and in detail each thing that you do and how it makes you feel. This will greatly arouse your wife, as well as let her know that she's meeting your needs.
  65. SHOP FOR A GIFT TO SHARE Go shopping for something that you'll both enjoy together. Get a great CD, massage oils, or anything that you'll both like.
  66. ENCOURAGE HER TO FOLLOW HER DREAMS If your wife has dreams and goals that she would like to accomplish, be her best cheer leader. Support her as she endeavors to reach them.
  67. BE KIND AND COURTEOUS Treat your wife as you would expect her to treat you. Treat her with dignity and be courteous at all times.
  68. PASS GAS IN THE BATHROOM If you must pass gas, go to the bathroom. Don't do it to annoy her, or burp at the table. It's not as funny as you think it is - as a matter of fact, it's not funny at all.
  69. FLIRT WITH YOUR WIFE Don't stop flirting with her just because you're married. Do it now more than ever to keep that spark! Wink at her from across the room, whistle at her, or give her "that look." Watch her cheeks turn rosy.
  70. TAKE A JACUZZI BATH TOGETHER Jacuzzis are one of the world's most romantic inventions! Some use it for stress, some use it for... If you don't have a jacuzzi tub, check into a hotel that has a tub for two, and spend the night.
  71. TAKE A WALK Go for a long walk through a park or take a moonlight stroll. Hold hands while you walk.
  72. LOOK OUT FOR THE FUTURE You plan on being together for life, right? Make sure that your future will be secure. Set up a retirement fund. Also, although no one wants to think about it, we all will die one day. Take out a life insurance policy to make sure that if the worst should happen, your family will be cared for.
  73. SET UP A SLIDE SHOW Pick out special photo memories from the time that you were dating to the present. Create a slide show with music. This is something that you can do together and can help keep you close.
  74. DON'T RUSH SEX While the two of you are in the middle of the wonderful marital gift of sex, be careful not to rush it. Let your wife know that you're loving her, not just the moment.
  75. DON'T BELITTLE HER OPINIONS If your wife has an opinion or an idea, thank her, and let her know that her thoughts are valuable. Don't act like her ideas are unintelligent or crazy.
  76. CHERISH HER DIFFERENCES Your wife has a lot different make up than you and it shows in more ways than one. Not only in her body, but the way she thinks, or even the way she receives love are naturally just "different." Cherish these differences and don't try to change her.
  77. BE DEVOTED TO HER HAPPINESSDo what you can to make your wife happy. You don't have to buy her the most expensive things or "spoil" her rotten, (though that's OK too). Usually a little goes a long way for most wives, and just giving a little attention now and then will make her feel loved and appreciated. You will find that if she's happy, she'll respond better to your needs as well.
  78. REMINISCE YOUR WEDDING NIGHT Women like to remember special times. Bring up your wedding night and how it felt to have sex for the first time. Talk about your high school graduations or the day your kids were born.
  79. MAKE HER LATE FOR BREAKFAST Wake her up by kissing her! Not only will this be a pleasant way to wake up, but she just might keep you there through breakfast!
  80. MAKE A JOURNAL Start on her birthday or Christmas and write a love note or something special to your wife everyday for a year. At the end of the year, present it to her as a gift.
  81. GIVE HER A NICKNAME Give her your own special name, like "Beautiful" or "Angel."
  82. HAVE YOUR PHOTO MADE WITH HER Go have a professional, up-to-date photo done of the two of you. Try romantic scenes such as a park or waterfall.
  83. GO ON A SECOND HONEYMOON Remember how special your honeymoon was? Take another one, and try to make it better than the first.
  84. START A HOBBY TOGETHER Find a hobby that you both enjoy, such as horse back riding or tennis. Do it together as often as you can to help stay close.
  85. HELP HER UNDRESS Help your wife with the buttons or snaps. Caress her gently as you help remove her clothing. Do it slowly, piece by piece.
  86. SHOW HUMILITY Don't get a big head and think that you can't be touched with a ten foot pole. You wife wants you to be confident, but don't think that you're the master of all.
  87. PROTECT HER Look after your wife making sure that she's not in any situations where she could be harmed physically or emotionally. This even includes verbal abuse from cantankerous family members. Always be quick to stand up for her in any given situation.
  88. DON'T PUSH SEX Be considerate in the fact that sometimes your wife just won't feel like having sex. Remember, she's not rejecting you as a person if she turns you down. However, if she says no too often, try talking to her and making sure that she's not feeling insecure.
  89. BE HER BEST FRIEND Be there for your wife at all times and in every situation. Let her feel confident enough to share anything with you.
  90. BE THE CHEF Cook up a romantic meal for your wife. Even if you're not a cook, you can find something that you can make. Just follow the box or cookbook directions. Macaroni and cheese can be romantic if it comes from your heart. Just set the table with some candles and turn out the lights. What could be more romantic than eating macaroni and cheese in candlelight with an adoring husband who's tried so hard to please you?
  91. GET RID OF IRRITATING HABITS Do you have a habit that bugs your wife?Try to take the necessary measures to stop it.
  92. PLANT A GARDEN TOGETHER Whether it's a flower garden or a vegetable garden, growing things takes lots of work. Why not do it together? This will cut the work in half, and will be a great way to enjoy each other's company. Then when it's all said and done, enjoy the fruits of your labor by picking and eating the veggies, or decorating the table with the lovely flowers.
  93. BUY A SEASON PASS Buy season passes to the zoo or a museum. The cost will only come once a year, so if you're a little tight on money at some point, you will always have a place to go that is fun and paid for.
  94. DON'T BE A WORKAHOLIC!(Or any other kind of "holic" for that matter). Make sure there is always time to spend with your wife and family. In a few years, the money won't matter anyway, and you just have one chance at life. Make the most of it with the ones you love; don't live with regrets.
  95. SLOW DANCE IN YOUR BEDROOM Turn on some romantic music, hold your wife close, and slow dance right in your own bedroom. Suggest lighting candles and dancing in the nude.
  96. MAKE A LIST OF LOVE Make a list of every reason that you can think of that you love your wife and post it on the refrigerator.
  97. SPEAK IN YOUR OWN CODE Create a secret code word for something that only the two of you know, and say it openly in public! It's like having your own secret language!
  98. NIBBLE Pull your wife close and nibble her ear or lips. This will give her cold chills!
  99. GRAB A KISS WHILE WAITING If you're at a stop light or in a long line at the drive-through, pull your wife close and grab a kiss. (Remember, at least six seconds, although you may want to go longer)!
  100. TELL THE WORLD HOW MUCH YOU LOVE HER Put a bumper sticker on your vehicle that says, "I Love My Wife," or put up a sign in your yard that says, "The Prettiest Lady In the World Lives Here."
  101. JUST SAY THE WORDS Tell your wife everyday, several times a day, that you love her.

      The Hard Way 9 years ago

      Gentleman, Take this stuff seriously!

      Don't ever take your wife and her commentment to you for granted. I made the mistake of working to much, not giving her the attention she needed, and did not telling her "I Love You" enough. A Few weeks ago, after 25 years of marriage, I discovered she was having an affair. This will RIP your heart out and show you how much her LOVE really means to you.

      This is the hardest thing Ive ever had to deal with, but I love her and I will never let her forget that she is the most special thing in my life, and all everything else is second to her.

      I now tell her "I Love You", I talk to her, I treat her like a friend, I send her text messages in the middle of the day, just to say she's special, I will always show her the attention she deserved and somehow I misplaced.

      Remember that your Wifes love is something Special. Don't let it fade, even for a second.

      Are you married? This is such a great hub!!! I have an ex husband, by the way we are trying to get back together, that really lived up to most of these. As a woman, if you can do these for a woman, you got her for life! Women need these things. Maybe not all of them to keep them foreve but it sure does make a HUGE difference!!

      What a terrific list. I wish I knew where to find a counterpart for the wives. Here at we help our clients with info in how to put on a terrific wedding starting with their wedding invitations - the etiquette and all involved with that, but i would love to refer them to your tips for the husbands in how to keep love alive in their marriages and I wish I knew where to find a similar list for the wives regarding how to continue to woo their husbands after marriage.

      The breakup rate is way too high in our country in my opinion. If husbands around the country would practice what you have laid out here, there would be far fewer divorces. If you don't mind, I would love to refer our clients to your hub. If you know of anything similar i could send the wives to regarding how to esteem and respect their husbands, would you let me know? Out of all the great causes out there, one of the greatest, must be one that helps couples stay together, especially for the sake of their children.

      Lori:  I know that this may not be poplular with some but I know Someone who can restore broken marriages and mend broken hearts.  God.  He cares about what we are feeling and he cares about our relationships.  In fact, he cares about everything that concerns us.  Why don't you take the time to talk to him about it?  He loves you.

      Lori 9 years ago

      blessedmommy, I have talked to God and I still do. I have tried to talk to my husband about this and he simply either does not care or can't get it that i need love. I rarely get sex. Maybe once a year. He never holds my hand. My husband does not kiss me and he adverts his eyes away when i come out of the shower. If I try to come on to him he pushes me away and tells me he is too tired. I am a pretty lady I am slightly over weight, but i have never cheated on my husband and never want to. I feel overwhelmed a lot now. I started writing little notes to him and putting them into his lunch. Things like I am proud of you and love you. Thanks for working so hard for us. I feel lost, and unwanted and unloved. Nothing works. I feel trapped and alone. My husband and I have been married 29 years. I have always tried to be there for him and show him respect and love. I am not a woman that does not like sex. I have always listened to his problems, and tried to always be the leaning shoulder for him. I always gave him masages, and took care of my man every way possible. But he does not return the favors. We never use to have a problem with this. But my husband is a very depressed person. He takes medication for it when he wants to. I have asked him to talk to the doctor about this and for seven years he has not.

      I use to play piano in church at a little church. But I know God is the answer in every thing we face in life. There. I know my husband is depressed and this is why I have stayed with him this long. I do not believe in divorce unless it is for adultry. I cannot prove that. So I have been working to get my husband in church. I quit playing the piano, and direction the chior and teaching classes and runing the youth program and left to go to a church he chose. We are there now. He does go some now . Before he never went. Now at least he does go at least once a month. But I go every sunday and to sunday school. I do sing in the chior but that is it. I am trying not to get too involved for his sake . I pray nad read my bible daily. I study the word of God And it is my pryer that he will finally see the light and start living again. He needs God in his life and I mention this as gently as I can. I do not hound him if he does not want ot go to church I just say maybe next sunday and leave with a prayer on my lips. I do pray and I would love to be happy again. But so far no drastic change. Say a prayer for me please. I am trying with all my might to hang in there but it is hard very hard...

    • blessedmommy profile image

      Carisa Gourley 9 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma

      Lori: My heart goes out to you and I'm am making your situation a matter of earnest prayer. YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT I WILL! I don't claim to have all the answers, but I talk to the ONE WHO DOES every single day.

      Although I've never experienced the same pain that you're feeling, I've endured great pain in other areas of my life. There was a certain situation that I faced once that caused me a great deal of grief and heartache. I took it to God and I felt like that He promised me that He would turn things around. Well, it didn't happen immediately and even at times I would pray and things would seem to get worse. The thing that kept me going was that I believed that God would do what He promised no matter how long that it took. At times I'd feel like I couldn't go on and the promise wasn't going to happen, then God would give me a sign either through a song, a word from someone, a Bible verse or some other way that He had not forgotten to do what He said that He would. Sometimes I'd walk around in blind faith with all the circumstances laughing in my face screaming at me that I was crazy for hoping but I'd just cling to my promise like a child clings to his mother.

      Finally, after years of seeing no results and no tangible reason why it should come to pass, God completely turned everything around in one night. Now the joy that I feel has covered over the pain of the past until it is just a memory. I know that He can do the same for you and your husband. I'm living proof of God's work in a person's life.

      If you'd like to e-mail me instead of using the comment box, your welcome to use the link above. If you wish to just use the comment box, that's fine too. However, even if I never hear from you again, you can be assured that you and your husband will be in my prayers.

      Lori 9 years ago

      Thank you, I too have had those objectives in my life that present pain before and thought sometimes it seems that I am alone I know and have learned God is right beside me holding my hand. I do not always understand the why he makes us wait but the bible does say to wait on the Lord and you shall mount up with wings like Eagles. In other words if I do not give up and I keep the faith God will bring you through. I do know this but it is sometimes difficult waiting. Thank you so very much for your answers. It is awesome that there is someone out there in this great, vast world that does know that God can help and is even willing to mention God. You again made my day. Last night I prayed and cried myself to sleep but I could feel God near. I could feel his presence throught it all. I am so glad I do have a loving God to go to and I appreciate like no tomorrow your kindness in talking to me. Thank you very much. Lori.

      Wonderful list! I am about to print this out and leave it on Hubby's nightstand. He's a hard worker, affectionate and claims to love and value our marrige and family but there are many things that I ask of him that he's aware are important to me, but he acts like he simply can't be bothered. I don't want him to slay dragons or part the Red Sea or anything, but he acts as though the little things I need are just too much (going out as a couple, joining the marriage ministry at churc, etc), yet I compromise often and willingly for him. Maybe this will help, appreciate it BlessedMommy!

    • blessedmommy profile image

      Carisa Gourley 8 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma

      MsMelody:  I'm sending my prayers along with your efforts.   May God bless your marriage.  I just wanted to point out that you said that your husband is a hard worker, affectionate and claims to value and love your marriage.  Concentrate on these things and realize the prize that you have in your husband.  Ask God to help you to appreciate your husband for who he is.  It's ok and you should tell him how you feel, however.  Just don't get bitter if his interests don't turn out to be exactly like yours.  Maybe the marriage ministry would thrill you but make your husband feel uncomfortable and maybe he don't go out as often because he's tired or feels the need the conserve funds.  Just talk it over with your husband and listen closely to his response.  While women often openly tell what's inside, men tend to just send "clues."  Find out how your husband communicates and try to stay in tune with that.  Meanwhile try to find things that you do have in common and things that you know that you both enjoy and do these things.  Then gently coax him to try new things.

It gets hard with kids and schedules and all of that stuff. I do love and cherish my wife but I have messed up big in the past (you know what i mean). This has and does still cause a lot of strife and I think she has fallen out of love with me. It kills me everyday and I am trying everything within my power and prayer to fix things. I just hope its not to late. God Bless everyone on here that is going that is willing to work on their marriage.

      I am only 38 and as of four years ago I cannot work due to an accident at work that left me barely able to walk and ended up in surgery that left metal rods holding me together. I was a parmedic and my wife is and was a nurse. She has been by my side through it all and I love her with everything I am. We have switch what is considered to be the roles men and women have. I take care of the house and kids and she works. it does not affect our relationship in fact i think it has made us a stronger couple. I was looking on the net for ideas to fan the flames of romance and came across your list. A list that in my opinion is well written. I have done all but a few. For those getting married or the ones that are married the ideas that are listed are really a great guide. My wife and I have been married for 11 years and we still have people that come up to us and tell us 'you guys are great together when are you getting married" it is a great compliment they give us.

      The most important thing you can do is respect one another and remember the way you felt the first time you saw her or him. It is so easy to forget. But I tell her every morning and every night that I love her. I also take the time to show her everyday. It is true that sometimes you are just wiped out and tired, but it is those times that will show her / him just how much you mean it when you say i love you.

      To the author of the hib I say 'well done!!" and thank you for making a list that us guys cn follow. It is not that we as men don't care about our partners. As you have stated we do tend to forget and as time in the marrage goes by, it easy to become lazy and eventually the fire goes out. I am going to post this on my blog site and on myspace once I get the ok from you so that those lost soles can have a guiding light.

      UTMEDIC: I was very touched by your marriage story - to me it sounded very romantic. I am so thrilled that you and your wife have learned the true meaning of love and the secrets to a happy marriage. Really there are no secrets but so many think that there is and try to make it so complicated. You stated one of the most important ones in your comment...REMEMBER. That one word is simple but very profound.

      These were great.

      I feel bad for the women who read this and compare this to their husbands. That's just not fair. I don't know if blessedmommy's husband does all these things, but if she does she ought to donate him to the circus.

      I do some of these things occassionally (as much as my wife does them for me), and I think I'm an awesome husband compared to most of the guys I know, though I should always do more. "Relatively awesome" can still be pretty bad considering what schleps most husbands are.

      If you look at these things and think ... gee whiz the love has gone out of my marriage, maybe it's over, then you've missed the message. Point is some men feel very uncomfortable doing these kinds of things (and I'm sorry blessedmommy, but although praying helps it's not going to fix it on it's own) but it doesn't mean they don't love you. Maybe they're depressed,maybe it something he's embarrased about, who knows. Regardless if he does NONE of these things ever, especially if he used to then something is at least wrong with him and you need to do something, because it will only get worse without intervention. Seek professional advice (don't just talk to your minister and call that good). JMHO.

      Again, great list. Thanks so much blessedmommy

    • blessedmommy profile image

      Carisa Gourley 8 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma

      davea0511: It is very unlikely that anyone will do all of the things listed here and no one will be able to do all of these things at once. I didn't write this article as a newlywed, but as someone who has had her ups and downs in marriage just like everyone else. As great as my husband is he can't do everyone of these things all of the time...but as you will notice at the top if you can just pick even one a day you will be surprised at how cherished this will make your wife feel. But if your honest you could do more than that.

      You said above that you do some of these things occasionally (as much as your wife does for you). We should never love someone based on how they love us. We should love them in spite of how they love us. When you only love to receive you are cheating yourself. True love goes deep.

      Don't underestimate the power of prayer. It has made my marriage what it is today and has helped it withstand many storms. It CAN fix a marriage. But you must keep believing and keep loving no matter how long it takes. But it does and it WILL fix it. I know what I'm talking about.

      I see so many of your tips and conclude I must be a girly man. I have been married a long time and I have never done most of the "typical things" men do. I don't pass gas in her presence and would die if I did! Romance is what all men do when they date. All real men know how to romance when they are single. They are doing it for a different reason then one does when they are married. Then all of a sudden they forget how to woo and give their best effort, how to impress and make them fall for them? I don't buy it. Men get lazy and women allow them to. They all turn into Homer Simpsons and sit and let the woman do all the work while they let themselves go and just know that they are always going to be adorable to their mate. Poopie! Men have no excuse! "Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church a gave Himself for it." Men should never stop dating their wives. They need to make her smile everyday. They should do something just for her everyday. They need to remember that they have been given a treasure valued "far above rubies." That being said, there is a great deal that I can improve on and the tips give me so many good ideas that I hadn't thought of. I gotta go and sweep her off her feet right now....oh yeah bye....HONEY! Come here!

      Really a great list, though I think some women may or may not appreciate some particular acts on the list. I am back with my exwife after four years of divorce, so I am trying to be as Jack Nicholson put it in the movie "As Good As It Gets," --A better man. Your list is helpful. After 38 years of marriage, a divorce of 4 years, and reconciliation, it does take a little devoted effort.

      Husband of 27 years to a wonderful wife. Unfortunately I've been an a** for the last several years, not giving my wife the treatment that she deserves. We finally got to the point where she wanted to separate from me. Long story short is that we went to see our minister and God has worked mightily in my life to show me the places I went wrong, how to trust Him and the proper way to treat and care for my wife.

      I love your list and I already do quite a number of them. But her heart is hard and closed to me. We're still married and I try with all my strength to be the best husband in the world to her every day. I compliment her, do for her, help her, listen to her, support her, am totally attentive to her, rub her back, and do everything that I can to show her the depth of my love for her. But it's lonely and empty when the reciprocation is almost nil. She says thank you and seems to appreciate my efforts, but no more than as a friend; my heart is breaking, but I stay because of the vow I made to her and God. I love her so.

      I read Lori's story from a couple of years ago. If my wife would respond to me with even a fraction of that effort I would be ecstatic. I look forward to the day when I can do the things on the list and she will really appreciate them as my wife and lover.

I don't feel "in love" with her anymore, so I find it a chore or almost disingenuous to do these flirty little things acting like I am in love with her. I know we both want to be close again, but I don't think either one of us knows how to take the first step to be able to do these 101 things and know that its real. Help?

We love each other deeply, but we were no longer in love as we were in the beginning. Thank you for the many ideas. I have put a ton of these ideas in action for the last few months and "WOW", We are falling in love again. It is allot of work but yet fun as the results start to shape. Great Page Thanks again

      Well my oldest daughter is going to attend a training camp in Ames Iowa. What I did was I made reservations at the resturant (which 22 yrs before is where we had our recption) we had a very nice meal I also had a dozen roses delievered to this resturant and they were on our reserved table. ok so now on to the Ames Iowa. Seeing as my wife was going to take our daughter to this camp in Ames. I went online and searched spas /salons I found one in Ames and ordered her a package deal. She received a pedicure a manicure a 1 hour massage and a mud or whatever facial. This whole deal was was super easy for me to do as it is everything she loves!! and for the last 22 yrs she has been my best friend in good and bad!!

      She deserves more but this is what I did!!

      Frustrated 6 years ago

      I do 68 of these on a regular basis. However, my wife still feels that I do not love her. She has told me that I'm a great guy and would do a number of these for "any girlfriend" I have had. I am so frustrated right now because I can't seem to get what she needs and she can't see everything that I try to do.

      Frustrated: You need more communication with your wife. Ask your wife to write down on separate slips of paper at least 10 things that would make "her" feel loved and special and you do the same for her. Put these in separate containers and then you draw one out each day and she does the same. Maybe her paper might say someything like "I want hugged and kissed more often" or "dinner and a massage at a resort would make me feel like a queen." Work on these things that are important to her and she will follow your lead. Your relationship will blossom because you won't be only following a list of rules but you will be customizing your efforts in meeting each others needs the in the ways they need to be met.

      What a great list. I love the idea about the journal. I love my wife very much, she is my world. She is out of the country right now visiting family far away (we could only afford for one of us to go and her grandma is quite ill). I always do my best to never hurt my wife in any way, I always tell her she's beautiful, I always cuddle her and kiss her, and I try to do little surprises as often as I can think of them. With her back home in Bolivia right now I find my self often crying. I miss her, I don't know how I could live without her. And in being parted for this short time I have realized many beautiful little things she does on the side. It was like a window into her heart to see the kind gestures she performed each day. The little things she did to make the best of all situations. I really feel an increased love and appreciation and though I feel I was a good husband prior to this experience, I have realized that sometimes I overlook her greatest gestures of love. And I now realize it truly is the little things that make all the difference. I never understood the phrase absence makes the heart grow fonder until now.

      Great list, lots of good things here. However, almost every list like this has something about never saying anything about a woman's weight.

      I understand not wanting to hurt feelings, and I certainly wouldn't condone calling someone fat, but if you're married to someone it would be a sign of love to show concern if your wife (or husband) were severely overweight.

      Too many people think that people mention weight to their significant others solely for selfish reasons. What if you're concerned about their health?

      My point is- it's completely appropriate to mention your significant other's weight if they have a weight problem. (key word: problem)

      Madness of Moody 6 years ago

      Not to be rude or condisending the list is awesome.I ve practically done everything on your list and learnt that they are women and can not be satisfied they always will be hard to please because they come from a different planet lol... All tho at times I get close with my wife not always but sometimes, But I do not give up the battle of life and love and move forward and hope tomorrow will be a new day with a new situation and another challenge to over come. You have to love them because as the old saying goes we can not live with them and we can not with out them.. As for me I know my wife is trying but I would not want to live a single day with out her, my marriage has been good and life as well but the only way

      to get thru life as a couple is to do it together there is never one side to a story when you are two there is only life as one like the bible says we should live become one.. So good luck to all cause do not know about the rest of yous I got my hands full.....

      I would be grateful for him to take out the trash, give the car an oil change and well a few kinky deals too, But a guy that goes the distance with a little more once in a while is cool.

      Just not too much because then I would have to start working too hard to keep up with him and that would just take all of the fun of relaxing out of it.

      To all you practical woman out their. try to lighten up. your way to love your husband is to appriciate him if he tries some of these tips. and husbands if your wife is the practical type try and do something out of the ordinary for her like clean the house if you don't do it already. maybe you can do a couple of the jobs that you have been putting off, she will love you for it. she will consider that you care enough to take her feelings into consideration. do not just love her with words gifts touch and time sometimes just doing practical things can begin to meand a cracked relationship. if she is not practical then try, touch, time, gifts, words of encouragement, as well as acts of service.

      God bless

      Imagine the look on your loved one's face

      discovering a secret love-note

      hidden in the fridge

      or when they find an apple

      that has a ribbon tied all-around it

      placed under a pillow.

      For a very exciting reaction, leave flower-petals

      floating in the bathwater.

      Do something special for your loved one today

      trying different pleasant ‘surprises'

      and the flame of love will burn forever brightly.

      this is a great list. Now I need a specific list of tips to keep the lady happy. I feel I follow my husband and step-son around the house and pick up after them as if they don't have a lick of sense. A list of little things would help. I hate having to advise them 24/7 on things they should already know. I hate nags. Do you know where I can find a tangible list like that? Ex: sandwiches leave crumbs on the counter, clean it; unfold the trash bag when replacing it; wash bathroom sink after use etc. I know it sounds dumb but if I could just hand them a list and say follow this, it would be great....thanks!

      all of this sounds great. But you women are crazy. A man can do all of this and suddenly you may feel empty and it's all his fault. I think women need to get a grip on what's important. stop the fluff. get real. men try until they can't anymore and you then decide that they are the wrong guy. what if you were the wrong woman?

      Things I always thought of doing.Twenty eight years ,all kids raised 47 and never loved anyone like I love my wife.We look young feel young and love our grandbabys.Men it's ok to do what she tells you, if something's on your mind don't wait ask her gently.I don't let anything fester.But don't forget to keep learning about her needs and wants.Thats why I read things like this, thank you

      Make your love one feel special everyday.

      Do not allow your lives to become routine -

      prepare lots of different activities to enjoy.

      Never take your loved one for granted.

      Keep your love forever precious,

      sacred and beautiful.

      What you put into your love

      is what you will get out of your love.

      Enrich your lives with prayer.

      Always be your partners best friend.

      P.S. Ashley Nicole- You started a journal the day you started dating a guy? Thats a little weird. Im just sayin.

      What about making her the breakfast, bringing it to her bed, waking her with a gentle loving kiss on her forehead and feeding her with love..?

      this is the greatest. this reminds me of my hubby so much. we've been married for 14 years and each day gets better with him. one day while i was terribly sick, he made me my meals, cleaned the whole house and bought me flowers. he's my best medicine and my best friend.

      So what do I do if I already do most of these things and I can't even get my wife to give me a hug that I don't initiate?

      As you get older life seems to go faster. I would like to think that if i focas my life on living by some of these if not all then i have accomplished something. My wife is my life, and i hope that proves to be forever. Enjoy and be happy for what you have, and not what you don't. Love is a great thing.

      I love that these ideas are for a woman. I'll definitely share with my hubbie! I always have a hard time with buying his gifts. After talking, we came up with several that are action-based and help him out a little...they are “14 ways to Say I Love You Without Words” at InspiredMinute. So far he's a happy camper! Thanks for sharing!!!

      Great Hub! You have suggested beautiful and romantic ideas for a married couple. The point which touched me the most is the 6th one. It's a great food for thought, I am not married yet and I am a girl but can apply your suggestion for my mother. We always leave tip for the waiter in the hotel so that he feel good but never thank our mothers for doing so much for us. Thank u for adding something good in my life.

      This is so amazing and very much needed with my appreciation as well.

      It's an everyday adventure from here on out to giving my "Pretty Lady," all the exciting and loving ways she so deserves and much more! She's incredible in everyway I could think of, wished I'd shown and lived it out before our separation even could've begun...

      I'm committed and faithful too her and honored to be any part of her life at all it's truly a blessing just sharing some parts of one another in life.

      May our lords love and strength brings us together having no fears or pieces from past to interfere with OUR NEW LIVES STARTING SLOWLY TO RESPECT TIME BRINGS HEALING!

      Amen god bless all relationships !!
