The SO has been pretty stressed/restless/depressing lately. It’s gotten really cold here in Toronto and we havent been going out during the week like we do in the summer. Im trying to brainstorm ways I can cheer him up a bit from these winter blah’s.
So ladies, when your guy needs some cheering up what works for you?

@LibraryBlondie: a couple of nights ago, Darling Husband had an awful day at work. It was really obvious even after he came home. He loves ice cream. So I surprised him with some Breyers. He was so happy after that! ha! it’s the little things.

I bring him home some tiramisu or a pizza and scratch his back.

Sex is really the one thing that you can’t go wrong with.
Other than that, yeah, the winter sucks for fun activities! My fiance and I like to play poker, shoot pistols at the range, and drive around and check out new stores/restaurants.You could also ski/snowboard!
You can still have fun at home too! Play a board game, learn to cook something together, play a video game, etc. Just keep your eyes out for new activities you think you both would enjoy.

I give him head/back scratches practically every night (we are both in professional school and it stresses us both out a lot) and we just relax and watch tv usually! Also bringing the occasional dessert doesn’t hurt 😉

The last time my SO was REALLY stressed, when he got home, I had scheduled and purchased a back massage for him. While he was out getting his massage, I cooked his favorite dinner 🙂
But for less expensive things, a head rub or a silly little gift (like silly putty)will crack him up 🙂

I rub his back. If he’s really upset I haul out the massage table.

I cook his favorite meal, stir-fry. It takes forever the way I make it but it is so delicious. When he says the words “Are you making stir-fry?” his whole face lights up.
Chubby men are so easy to please.

Yep, a little homecooked food. A back rub and I turn on reality TV so that I can make sarcastic comments to the TV and make him laugh. He loves my droll sense of humor.

@Treejewel19: That they are! Last time Fiance was super stressed at work, he came home to a meatloaf in the oven, garlic mashed taters and creamed corn (his fav meal *ever*), he was all smiles and hugs for the rest of the night. This works out great for me, since I grew up in a house were the answer was always in the kitchen (got a cold, I can make somthing for that…..)
