    Hi Jan, Just by actions. Listen even when they are not speaking. As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words.

      l agree with you, listening is very important to maintain such relationship.

      I agree with you too. I had a friend whose actions didn't confirm his words. The words were great, the actions, not.

    By being there for them. If they have a surgery, it's taking time off to help care for them. If they have a difficult day at work, listen to them rant for an hour or two while offering a good dinner to help them feel better. Do the chores around the house, so they don't have to. Hopefully they enjoy the little things and notice what you are doing for them.

    Even after 26 years together, we still say please and thank you and truly mean those words.  We nurture and care for each other, always putting the other person first and we both know we are better human beings for having found one another.  My husband and I are very lucky people, and we know it.

      Thank you for writing it. This is a best example of a happy relationship. Wish you many more years like this.

      TimeTraveler, Truly lovely. "Putting the other person first" - the essence - isn't it?  Very difficult to achieve.  A perfect "best answer" choice, Jantamaya, because you brought it out to the light so that thought can cross our minds more often.  smile

      What an inspiration. You are absolutely right about what yo said. To show care, there must be respect, gratitude and compliments. Although, me and my wife are only together for 10 years, we still behave as we've meet the first time.

    Feed him, listen to him and stop giving him my opinion because he says i am always wrong! He says that if I listen to him, shows that I cared.

      Yes, being a good listener is a good advice. Thanks.

    By respecting his opinion and by understanding him when he does not feel good. I respect my partner a lot and for me I  think its the best way to show that I care about him and his feelings.

    1. jantamaya profile image72
      jantamayaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, I agree. I can't imagine any good relationship without having respect to each other.

    glad you asked... I wrote an app for that. (I think I can say the title without breaking the hub rules if I don't put a link here).  I was inspired by the Bruno Mars song, "Just the Way You Are" and was so touched by the specific lyric line, "You're amazing, just the way you are," spoken to the girlfriend in the song after she asks how she looks, that I wrote "The Perfect Husband App," for Android devices.  It's a kinda "what-to-say-to-your-wife-today" deal where I listed every sentence I could think of that my husband says, or that I would want my husband to say to me, to show that he cares.  "You continue to fascinate me."  "I'll finish that TODAY!"  "Don't worry, Hon, we'll work this out together." "What can I do next? But as JThomp alludes to, words without actions fall flat, and listening is critical, but I DO love the words!!!

    Respect is the number one key....with it comes faithfulness and loyalty. Listen to what is being said and not only those things that you want to hear. Learn the things that they like and that they don't like....giving each one the proper prospective. When we want to show someone that is a big part of our life we care....nothing shows it better....than a desire to be pleasing and not hurtful to them.

    Listen to, and love them unconditionally. This helps you become patient, selfless, and considerate. It pleases God that you do what He would do and is doing for all people whether they believe it or not.

      I love him unconditionally and sometimes I would forget it completely. Why?

    always show respect to your partner, have faith in him/her and make him believe that you are there for him at all times and against all odds. give him a surprise he will have all love for you

    Just tell him you love him.As easy as it is, some couples forget the importance of loving statements. Men aren't the most complicated of creatures. Just come out and say what you feel and that should suffice.

    Once you begin to pay attention to what brings your partner's pleasure and happiness, you're on your way to being a true romantic. The thing to keep in mind is that romance is desire of your partner. Your satisfaction comes from watching him/her joy.

      jantamayaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, Joseph, I agree with you, and I like your answer.

      You know Joseph, this thing with the best answer is a difficult task. I my eyes, all answers here are "the best!"

    Pay attention to the things that make them happy. Even if it's their favorite color or their favorite book or whatever, give them something that pertains to what they love. Give money to their favorite charity, cook them their favorite meal, ask them what THEY want? Write them love notes, tell them how much you love them, hug them, kiss them, listen to them, be honest with them. Be selfless-do things with them that you don't necessarily like to do. There are so many more ways to show someone you care but as long as you're unselfish you'll be able to come up with millions of ways on your own.

      Terry, Exactly right.  Miss JamieD: LOVELY!  You've done a lot for hub readers in just this 1 reply.  I, however, am such a selfish person in a marriage that I had to impose upon me "Your Weekend" "My Weekend".  My husband's weekend is excrutiating:)

    I cook great foods and bake lots of sweet to satisfy his sweet tooth... among many other things.  I'm a southern girl and I believe a way to a man's heart is through the stomach.  Of course I know there is so much more than that, but this is a portion of my way.

      I can't. He is the cook! Even a great one :-) OK, I can cook sometimes... :-)

    There are few things in world which cannot be explained in words and i think this is one of them

    - Doing  things which pleases him
    - Respecting  him
    - Respecting his parents
    - Trying to be  his best friend ( with whom he can share each and every thing)
    -  Supporting him in any difficulties he faces
    - A good listener
    - Changing my  habits for his sake
    - Giving more importance to him compared to others

    These are all qualities which I think will show my care for my husband.
