When your SO is feeling down or having a bad day, what do you do to cheer them up? This is a bit silly but I want to be supportive!
I think my guy is super cute but he’s had crowded teeth since he was a kid and always been self conscious about it – his single mom couldn’t afford braces. The cost was formerly prohibitive but he’s finally able to finance braces and had them applied today! He’s excited to make the improvement and it’s necessary for his future health, but he’s a bit out of sorts with the discomfort of the braces and is feeling self conscious – he said he feels very silly for caring about how they look because it’ll be worth it, but being a chick I totally understand worrying about appearances. Personally I still think he’s 100% adorable and don’t mind them at all, he’s the same awesome guy, and it’s temporary lol.
That was just this morning – he already had a bracket pop off and has to leave work again this afternoon to have it re-glued, to add to the frustration – I just feel bad. Brings back memories!
I really want to cheer him up…he’s rarely grumpy so I hate seeing him uncomfortable and want to do something special. When I’m having a bad day, he’ll send flowers to my work, buy me wine and dark chocolate for when I get home, cook for me, sexy time, take me for a walk on a local trail…things like that. Ladies, what is your version of flowers for your guys?

slomotion : damn, you beat me to it. I prefer to call them blowjibbers. It makes him laugh.

congrats to him on getting braces! Friend in his 50s just got them after years of saxophone playing messed his up and I just think he is so cool for investing in his teeth.
Couple time, special meal, and/or just plain telling my husband how aweseom he is usually does the trick.

softdrink77 : if he’s just got braces (and also when he has them tightened) a simple thing might be to make soft meals for a few days while the aching subsides. Things like mashed potato, porridge, scrambled eggs… things that don’t require too much chewing.
To specifically answer your question – my husband is happiest after I’ve cooked one of his favourite meals, had a blowjob while paying on the PlayStation and drinking a beer. If I’m not feeling the cooking or the blowjob, I take him to his favourite restaurant, give him a back rub, flash him or let him have a boob cuddle.

As others have said, cook a nice meal, get him his favorite beer or hard alcohol, write him a short letter telling him how awesome he is/all the things you love about him, massage while he’s playing video games or watching tv, lots of scratchies, bj and then end with a nice cuddle. When my hubby has had a particularly bad day, I’ll do all of these things in a day.

You guys are great! Lol he’d be a fan of ALL of these suggestions 🙂
alshink : Love this, thank you.
loz24 : The food is the worst part – your suggestions are definitely good ones. He had extractions last week to make some room, and so he’s already had a week of mouth pain and soft foods, at 6’3 he went from 190 to 183 in a week, which he’s terrible worried about… He loves working out and food so not being able to eat what he wants has been tough! Trying to be creative with the soft foods.

softdrink77 : everybody has covered all the other stuff but from a practical perspective to help with the pain, I found that applying creams aimed at teething babies to my gums helped with the pain associated with my initial braces application and following the tightening appointments. Maybe get him a tube of bonjela (or whatever its called in your country) to help with the pain.

softdrink77 : well everyones got the number one answer covered lol
but other tips
– Mrs fields cookie cake (small one) or any favorite treats he likes. There is also an italian bakery in the next town over that i sometimes go to get him a little something
– bring home his fav take out dinner or go out for dinner
– My Darling Husband is into anything Nike so i might swing by and get a pair of shorts or a shirt for him

softdrink77 : I feel like frozen daquiris or some pina coladas may be in order. Something cold and slushy for his mouth but also a little boozy to make him forget his mouth hurts!

LilliV : Yes!! I am going to do this! He’s a whiskey guy…how does Frozen whiskey sour or whiskey lemonade sound? 🙂
L606 : This is cute too <3 I love the shorts idea!
