My FH needs some ego stroking. He compliments me often and it makes me feel great! I rarely reciprocate. I want him to walk with his head held high and proud to be who he is. He is a little down in the dumps right now.

I don’t aim at making him feel like a man. He is a man!
But if I know he’s down in the dumps or feeling iller than usual (he’s pretty sick) then it’s the little things that he seems to find so comforting. His favourite cake and some quiet time together in front of the fire plus being affectionate and reminding him of how important he is to me.

@MsLabRat: Lmao! First thing that came to my mind too.
Tell him how awesome he is in bed when he does something you like. Tell him he looks very handsome today. Tell him you really appreciate the fact that he (insert thoughtfull thing here).
One time I sent my DH a text tht said “if you buy it, I’ll wear it”. (we had been discussing lingerie the night before) he came home with the most beautiful and sexy nightie.. I think that made him feel very special, since I’ve never worn that stuff before.

I usually ask my guy to do something for me involving power tools. Actually I need a clothes drying rack hung up lol…

I would thank him for small “jobs” he does around the house, no matter how mundane they may seem to you. Men feel manly when they feel needed. They are at their most manly when they feel respected and needed by a woman. Tell him how much you admire a character trait of his. I always compliment my husband on his work ethic and what a hard worker he is. I also stroke his chest and arms and tell him how safe I feel with his big arms around me 🙂
I also find that when I ask his advice and use the advice, it shows my trust in him, and sends him a subconscious message that I trust and value him.

Well, I would just give him a BJ too. And tell him how great he is at satisfying me in bed.

Seems like bj’s do the job.
My best friend told me to give him a surprise bj when he doesn’t suspect it. She suggested some sexy lingerie and maybe even some heels and surprise him when he gets home and tell him to shut up and For me to get on my knees. Not really me, but what a surprise. I don’t think he would mind if I bought new shoes or lingerie 🙂 at all!

I tell mine that he’s cute all the time and snuggle/hug/kiss him constantly. But that’s just because I feel that way and want to, not because I want to stroke his ego. It just comes naturally and he does the same things to me. We are just kind of cuddly people so it’s not forced for us anyways.

My FI is really confident and he enjoys when I genuinely compliment him (neither of us are ones for false flattery) but it has really nothing to do with the fact that he is a male… Should I be less confident because I am not one? =/
Unless you meant “as opposed to a boy,” uh… again I don’t know what aside from sex… I think he does feel like a man and not a boy, but he does this himself, he’s very mature, responsible, courageous and gentlemanly. (I also feel like a woman and not a girl: responsible, mature, courageous and ladylike). But how would he make me feel this way? I guess the fact that he does treat me like a lady, and I do treat him like a gentleman.

I tell him how much I appreciate how hard he works to take care of us, tell him how hot he looks when he works out… Stuff like that. I mean everything I say- I think that is important.
