Gratitude is Attractive (So Tell Her Thank You!) Gratitude is a strong signifier of a socially calibrated individual. Not only does it help your interactions, but it increases your attractiveness, too. This Thanksgiving, I figured I'd talk about gratitude.
A man will actually do the math in his head about where and how he's going to divide his energy. Appreciation is the fuel that energizes a man. Opportunities that yield appreciation are where he will head first. The more often a man receives appreciation, the more energy he has to spend.
Giving thanks should be a regular occurrence in any healthy relationship. Do a little trial and error to figure out what makes your man feel most appreciated. You will probably be able to tell what gets him from his reaction, but if not, go ahead and ask him.
Men want to be admired for who they are
They want to feel special, respected, admired, and irresistible. Your man may feel cool and confident and never seek praises, but underneath, he wants to know you appreciate him for who he is and what he brings into your life and the relationship.
Not saying "thank you" when someone helps you out with a simple request doesn't necessarily mean you are rude, a study suggests.
When a woman says that she appreciates you, it means that she is grateful for the things you have done for her and that she values your presence in her life. It is a sign of respect and appreciation, and it can be an important way to build stronger relationships with the people around you.
Men Need Love and Affection
In plain language: Men often feel most loved by the women in their lives when their partners hug them, kiss them, smile at them, and explicitly offer gratitude, praise, and words of affection. Men also feel loved and connected through sexuality, often to a greater degree than women do.
Appreciation and love are two completely different things. While love is a more general term and covers everything from friendship to romance, you can appreciate an individual without having a romantic relationship with them. So if you want to say I appreciate you, then remember to add the word “you.”
When someone says “I appreciate you” to another person in a sentence it is usually because they feel that person has done something good for them and deserves an outward recognition of thanks. It could also be used as an expression of admiration towards another's accomplishments.
Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.
He might begin to feel pressure to respond with, "It's nothing, don't worry about it," or "It's fine, I loved having you." The fact is, over-thanking can negate the whole purpose of a thank-you: to make the other person feel good. Instead, you may make him feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
Another study from 2018, this one from the University of Chicago, noted that people often don't say thank you because they assume the other person already knows they appreciate it, and they feel insecure about effectively expressing their gratitude.
It's not just about manners, or being seen to be polite. The capacity to feel and express genuine gratitude is a hallmark of psychological maturity and health. In fact, an inability to say thank you, along with extreme difficulties saying sorry, is considered typical of people with narcissistic personalities.
Both men and women consistently cite emotional stability and maturity as one of the most attractive traits in a potential spouse. While men often fall victim to the stereotype of prioritizing physical attraction, when it comes to a potential wife, they want a woman who is grounded and secure in herself.
Accepting, acknowledging, and appreciating your man for the person he is, helps build a strong bond of love, care, and respect. Working on improving your own skillset while giving them their own personal space, would keep them eager and confident to reach back to you.
Men secretly crave to talk about their feelings, men want to be understood, they want to know how to be more vulnerable in relationships, to let their emotions out, and — just like everyone else — want others to care about their feelings. As humans, we need to feel connected to others–to build emotional intimacy.
