Last updated Jan 2, 2022 | Published on Oct 1, 2019

Looking for ways to keep your man happy? We have got you covered. These 14 tips will help you keep your man happy. 

Men love these things. They will feel the love and wouldn’t want to do something to make you sad. So try to use them to spark up the relationship as much as possible. 

Letting your man know what you want and when you like it will make him feel excited. You don’t need to do so much to keep him. When a man truly loves you, every other thing will fall in place. 

Follow along as we go through the tips you can apply to keep your man happy.

1. Compliment him from time to time. 

Tell him how you feel about him. Not only do women love compliments, but men also love it, and they feel good when you tell them. 

Say something nice about his clothing or appearance. You know you already find him attractive, so why not let him know? It will make his heart melt. 

Furthermore, He’ll be glad to know his dressing and appearance haven’t gone unnoticed and that he’s succeeding at making you excited.

2. Get Connected with Him

While you guys walk on the road, hold hands with him, make him know how proud you are to be his woman. 

Look into his eyes from time to time and whisper into his ears, telling him how he made you feel when you sit on the sidewalk or someplace else. Rest your head on his shoulder. 

3. Be understanding and patient with him. 

Don’t take things too personally. He may offend you in some little ways; try to overlook some of his errors. 

Don’t be afraid to tell him his mistakes and correct him. He wouldn’t want to do it again. Put his feelings into consideration. 

Being understanding and patient will help you enjoy better health, make better decisions and ultimately help you keep your man.

4. Make yourself look good and presentable during outings with him. 

Another great tip that will keep your man happy is always looking very attractive, especially during outings with him. 

Men like to be seen with a well-dressed lady and someone who is self-confident. Someone who can represent anywhere they find themselves. So always work on your outward appearance.

I would also say, when it comes to clothing, men’s preferences always differ from each other. Some men like sexy clothing on women, which means dresses, skirts, and skimpy outfits. 

Others like tight clothing on women like sweaters and turtlenecks or anything that will show cleavage or backside. 

Meanwhile, some men prefer shorts, mini skirts, and mini or medium dresses. Some will go for floral patterns. So it depends on what your man likes. Go along with him. He wouldn’t want to miss a chance to be seen with you in public.

5. Surprise him with gifts occasionally. 

Do not wait for a big occasion first. Just out in the blue, offer your man something nice. It doesn’t have to be expensive. The intention is what matters. 

It can be flowers, chocolates, a small artistry work, etc. This will also show your man that you are grateful to him and value his role in your life.

6. Take him to an outing.

Take him out somewhere nice. Just wake up one day and call your man. Tell him you have a surprise for him. Take him out either to a nice quiet restaurant, the park, movies, or the zoo, etc. 

He will feel the love. Gone are the days when people believed only men should take women out. Men like it when you do the same to them too.

7. Call him for no reason. 

You don’t need a special reason before talking to your man on the phone. Calling your man for no reason is another great tip in keeping him. 

Just call him and tell him anything crazy or romantic. This will make him know he is always on your mind. It will bring a smile to his face. And tell him bye.


Trust me; he will keep wondering what’s up? You will stay in his mind, and he will be looking forward to seeing you.

8. Keep the fire burning. 

Sometimes surprise him by putting on something very nice, playing cool and romantic music, and dancing for him. 

Show him different moves. You will be surprised that he will join in. I tell you, you have made his day on that very day. 

Make time for each other and make plans, whether it is a day trip, a dinner, or going to the game. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Couples should have fun, enjoy one another and engage in activities they love together. 

9. Keep communications alive. 

Technology makes it easy to keep in touch. Seeing each other every day may not be easy, especially if it is a long-distance relationship. 

So make sure you take advantage of video chats through WhatsApp, Skype, or other social media platforms on your smartphone. 

Talking on the phone and texting is good for a quick check-in. Communication can bring a big smile to your man’s face.

10. Talk About the Little Things. 


It’s easy to share the big news, but the little things help you stay connected. Tell your man about how you spend your day, about your neighbors or events with friends and family. 

Also, share funny moments about your day at work or an exciting thing that happened while commuting. Call each other before sleeping if you’re staying apart from each other.

11. Appreciate your man

Appreciating your man is vital to maintaining a healthy relationship or marriage. Whether they have made you breakfast, dropped you off at work, took you to an outing, tucked in the kids, or surprised you with something—don’t forget to appreciate him for it.  

In addition, he doesn’t have to do something for you before you appreciate it. Tell him when he is not expecting that: “I appreciate you so much or thank you so much for everything.” 

This definitely will make him smile for no reason. He will be looking forward to doing more. He will know all that he is doing is not going unnoticed.

12. Show personal interest in your man

Taking a personal interest in your man will achieve considerable success in keeping him. Get to know his thoughts, things he enjoys doing, ambitions, goals for the future. 

Where does he stand on having kids, on marriage, his career? Show a genuine interest in his family as well. 

Listen to him and look him directly in the eye when talking to him. It will help in building a successful relationship with him. Trust me, all men stay and love you more when you do all these things.

13. Treat him with respect

Another tip to keep your man happy is by showing him respect continually. When a man shows you respect, how does it make you feel? Happy right? 

On the other hand, how do you feel when he doesn’t show you respect? Not good—I guess. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing. 

Furthermore, you can also show respect to your man by hearing him out and letting him make his own choice. 

Of Course, everyone wants to be respected. It is a great way to keep your man and make him love and respect you.

14. Tell him you love him

You may sometimes think that when you keep repeating the same word over and over again, the word will lose its meaning. “I LOVE YOU” is not just any word. It is absolutely unique. 

It doesn’t lose its meaning or purpose. In fact, it keeps refreshing itself like you’re saying it for the first time. That is the power of “I LOVE YOU”. 

Also, words like this remind your partner that they are still attractive to you and that you care about and love them. 

Sometimes the small things are what count. Never get tired of saying those magic words if you really want to keep your man happy.

Bottom Line

Prioritize your relationship with your man over everything else. Do things that will ignite the relationship—kick boredom out of it. 


Pay close attention to his needs and know when to give him space. For the most part, men don’t have many needs or conditions in a relationship. 

If you know how to fill the little needs, it is easy for you to keep him and make him very happy. Doing the following tips outline in this article will surely help you keep your man happy.
