dinner is always good, so what about bringing home a nice cake for you two to share?

I bought my FH flowers the other day, we had a blue.. hes never recieved flowers before but he appreciated the gesture.. its the small things that count.

A note in his car or something? somewhere where he will notice?

I would roast a chicken– guys always love that, and it makes the house smell really good.  Just get a small/medium chicken, rub it with seasoning and lemons and maybe stuff it with some garlic and lemons and an onion, and then pop it in the oven (tons of recipes online if you want to do something more creative).  Then make some yummy mashed or roasted potatoes and some of his favorite veggie side dishes.  Plus dessert!

Or is he more of a steak man?  Get a nice juicy steak and rub it with some spices, then throw it on the grill.  Easy!  Also, soft music in the background and candles on the table make a big difference in the ambiance.

I think the important thing is not to rehash last night, or bring up the issues again, but just start it off by saying that you wanted to cook him a nice dinner to thank him for communicating openly with you and that even though it was a rough night, it makes you feel good for the future that you can talk things out together, and keep building a stronger relationship.

Good luck!

My Fiance loves a little note on his car.  When I walk the dog at night, I will slip in in there.

I think it has to be something personal to the two of you. dinner sounds nice but even getting take-out from his favorite place? or sending him a mid-day i-love-you email. sometimes i hide notes where I know my Fiance will find them like in his lunch, briefcase, or wallet. just something that will make him smile. 🙂

Oh, if you don’t eat chicken then I’d definitely chose something else!  You want to be able to enjoy it too. 

If he likes cooking, maybe you could pick something where you both could be involved with the cooking/prepping process.  It could be a playful, fun, bonding experience to sort of lighten the mood and ease the tension.  Hard to feel awkward together when the ingredients are flying everywhere!   My husband and I love cooking together, and it’s really fun when we’re both in the kitchen chopping, sauteeing, etc.  Even something as simple and casual as making some quick steak fajitas or some homemade pizzas (with storebought bases but choose-your-own toppings) is fun– I’ll be in there chopping away at the vegetables, and he’ll be cooking the onions, meat, etc. 

If he has a sweet tooth, definitely plan something yummy for dessert.  If my husband was trying to win me over with food, he’d just have to bring home ice cream and all would be forgiven haha.
