Most men in this generation don’t understand it’s not about giving her the world, but it’s actually about making her feel like she’s a priority in yours.

It’s about surprising her with a sweet text throughout the day to remind her you’re thinking about her.

It’s about coming home from work and asking about her day because you genuinely care about the answer.

It’s about going to the refrigerator to get yourself a drink, and you get her one without even asking.

It’s about driving down a backroad and pulling off to the side to pick her some beautiful wildflowers.

It’s about cuddling on the couch in sweatpants and binge-watching your favourite show on Netflix together.

It’s about taking her to her favourite restaurant unannounced.

It’s about slow dancing with her in the rain to a song that was written by George Strait.

It’s about calling her randomly and asking how she is doing because you care about her mental health.

It’s about laying her favourite dress on the bed with a note that says “Put this on and be ready by 7 pm”.

It’s about knowing the smallest details about her, like the way she likes her coffee in the morning, her favourite smell, or what movies make her cry.

It’s about going to a local ice cream parlour on a Saturday afternoon to talk about your life goals together over a couple of hot fudge sundaes.

Take my advice and remember…… it doesn’t always have to cost much money, it just needs to catch her off guard.
