Things She Wishes You'd Do

Yes­ter­day, I asked my hus­band if he would have come by my office to pick up my car and put gas in it. He said that he would have, and it really made me wish I had called and asked! He also blows me kisses all the time. It’s our code for ‘I love you.’ We’ve been doing it for the 10 years of our mar­riage.” Lori B.

Try a ran­dom act of affection

Walk up and give me a hug for no rea­son or kiss me when I’m just wash­ing dishes. A woman loves affec­tion.” Barb A.

Send a sweet tweet

We met on Twit­ter one year ago and now do some goofy lit­tle things to show our love for each other. My husband’s lit­tle Twit­ter ges­tures now include send­ing out a #show­somelove or #luvofmylife tweet to our more than 2,000 fol­low­ers. He also snaps and posts impromptu pics on Insta­gram; how­ever, we’ve made it a note that all impromptu pics of me must be okay’ed before being uploaded!” Chris­t­ian R.O.

Sur­prise me with flowers

I wish he would sur­prise me more to show me that he thinks about me. When I go to the store, I get him things like new socks if he needs them or even some­thing like a Kit Kat just to make him smile. He never does that for me. I wish he would just think of me for once. I never get any­thing like flow­ers unless it’s a hol­i­day.” Sara G.

Give me a massage

I would so appre­ci­ate lit­tle things like bring­ing me fresh flow­ers (love them!) or sur­pris­ing me with a foot or shoul­der rub.” Kathy N.

Plan a picnic

My hus­band once sur­prised me with a neck­lace from Tiffany’s, and the only thought that came into my mind was how much money it cost. I wish we would ran­domly dance with me — even when no music is play­ing, take me out on a pic­nic, or take a break from his phone. I want him to sur­prise me with some­thing that doesn’t cost a lot on any given day so I don’t have to worry about bal­anc­ing the check­book after­ward.“Tawnee M.

Write a love note

I wish he would leave lit­tle love notes for me some­times and be more roman­tic. I do roman­tic things for him all the time and can’t help but wish it was rec­i­p­ro­cated more often.” Mel Y.

Open doors for me

He still opens doors for me — car doors included.” Melinda R.
