So I’m on the road traveling again, and my current stop finds me in Detroit. With the temperature teetering between “freezing” and “you’ve got to be kidding me,” you can imagine that I didn’t leave my hotel room last night. The time cooped up gave me ample opportunity to check out some other websites to gain valuable insight into how others view love and relationships. One article that really caught my eye detailed 5 Ways To Make Your Man Smile … an interesting topic to say the least.

Well, after I finished reading, I felt it was only right to bring the discussion back home to the Fly Guy community. So read, digest, and let’s talk about it. Fellas, this is our time to take center stage. Let see if the ladies really understand us.

As someone who can barely calculate a tip, I don’t have much to add to the conversation about our tanking economy. But I would like to share one little piece of wisdom I picked up from my favorite social economists: you can’t buy me love. Corny but true. Don’t believe me? Try one of my five patented Romance Enhancers — if you don’t think they’re more effective than a gift card, I’ll send you a full refund.

#1: Touch His Arm
There are a lot of ways to subtly let a guy know you’re into him, like maintaining eye contact, playing with your hair, and smiling a lot. But the only one that sends shivers down my spine is when a girl touches my arm during conversation. It always surprises me, and it’s always great.

#2: Send Him a Random Text Message in Midday.

OK, this might not be free depending on your cell phone plan, but it’s still a great value. Nothing breaks the monotony of a long workday like a flirty note from someone special, and unless his job is super-intense he’ll have plenty of time to daydream about you.

#3: Ask Him a Question About Something He Knows a Lot About

Dating news flash: Guys like to show off for you. So if your dude could use an ego boost, there’s nothing like letting him feel like an expert. Ask him about fishing, the 1983 Chicago White Sox, or the mating habits of the Guyanese Bullfinches — whatever he’s into. Just remember to nod frequently and look really interested.

#4: Give Him a Very Specific Compliment
Telling a guy he’s funny, handsome, or smart is always appreciated, but the really meaningful compliments are the ones that reveal how well you know him. Something like “I love the way your face scrunches up when you’re doing the crossword puzzle” or “You have the most manly calves I’ve ever seen.”

#5: Send Him the Diary Entry You Wrote After Your First Date — or Write One Now

One of the best things about having a girlfriend is reminiscing about what you thought about each other in the beginning of your relationship. Reliving all of the uncertainty and anxiety is strangely exhilarating. I can’t think of a better anniversary present than a sanctioned peek into the documented thoughts of someone I care about.

Bonus Tip:
Give him a free pass to go out with his friends alone.


Fly Conclusion: So what are your thoughts on the tips to make your man smile? Do they sound like reasonable tips, or a bunch of BS?

From my perspective, I can only think of one surefire way for a woman to make me smile … but this isn’t that type of website, so I’ll keep that to myself. :-)

    I absolutely love #5! I never knew guys loved reading my thoughts about them during those times lol including the “I just wanted to grab his butt” comments.

    FG, you are a trip talking about the one thing that makes you smile ;-0. These are some of the same things that women love as well…with the exception of #5. I don’t know many guys that keep a diary or at least admit that they do. Great article….waiting to hear the men’s perspective

  • BellaBecca

    Ooo, FlyGuy, acting grown with it not being that type of website. I can’t do #5…maybe some kind of alternate plan for this diary bit.
