Plenty would argue that it takes too much work to make a woman feel special. I say they are wrong. To make a woman feel special, it doesn’t take that much work at all. It just requires you to be a gentleman and put in constant effort. Nothing much to be honest.
Women are by nature sensitive creatures and we’re mostly led by our feelings. It isn’t true that we need too much to feel special or that we’re looking for an out-of-this-world love. This must be a myth that was created by those men who are just low-effort. The truth is much different than this.
Making a woman feel special will never be a problem for those men who care. Making a woman feel special won’t be exhausting, expensive or anything like that. There are so many ways you can make a woman in love feel special or make a woman fall for you, if you only know which doors to knock on.
For men who aren’t so resourceful, we bring you 28 of the most common ways to make a girl feel special and as I said, for those who care, this will be a piece of cake to fulfill.
1. Make time for her
This one isn’t rocket science and it means so much to the fairer sex. Making time for her shouldn’t even be arguable, this is something that should come naturally to all men.
When you want to make a woman feel special, all you need to do is make time for her. Regardless of how busy your schedule might be or what is on your to-do list for that day, making time for your woman should be something that goes without saying.
2. Make her your priority
This one goes together with making time for her and it’s also something that should go without saying.
If you want your girl to feel special then make sure she is your priority and make sure she knows it. If you already welcomed her into your life and you want to be an important part of hers as well, then you should come at the top of each other’s priority list.
Regardless of what happens, if you’re planning something serious with her in your life and if you’re planning to tie her to yourself, then she should always come first in your life. That being said, you should also know that nothing will make her feel special more than knowing she’s #1 in your life.
3. Accept her
But truly accept her. Accept her for who she is. Accept her with all her perfections and imperfections. Accept all her likes and dislikes. All her flaws and all her little rituals. Truly accept whatever she brings to your relationship.
Don’t just take her good sides, take those you normally wouldn’t like. Accept her whole, not just parts of her and her personality that others might not. That’s how you show her she’s special to you.
4. Don’t try to change her
Not trying to change her goes together with accepting her.
There will probably be things about her that you won’t like or things that you’d like to see. But just because you are portraying her in a certain way it doesn’t mean that’s her truth. So if she isn’t something you’d like her to be, don’t try to make her change. Leave her the way she is and love her the way she is. That’s the way to make her feel special.
5. Appreciate her
Never let a day pass by where you don’t notice all the things she does for you. Never let a day pass by that you don’t thank her for everything she does.
Appreciate her efforts and always notice the little things she does for the two of you. By simply saying, “Thank you for doing that for me,” it will make her feel like the most special woman in the world.
6. Pay attention to her
If you think she’ll feel special if you neglect her, then you’re mistaken. No sane woman falls for those kinds of mind games, you know.
If you want to make your girl feel special, then pay attention to her. Pay attention to her feelings, listen to what she’s saying to you and, most importantly, look carefully at what she’s showing you.
7. Try to walk in her shoes
Nothing will make her feel more special than to see her man making an actual effort to see her point of view. So, whatever happens between the two of you, whatever she does, before you make a decision to do something, before you judge her, make sure you see everything from her perspective.
Here, you’ll need to cultivate compassion and show her that you feel whatever she’s feeling. Never dismiss her feelings easily or take them lightly. She has a reason to feel the way she’s feeling so hold her hand through whatever she’s going through.
8. Be there for her at the end of a rough day
I’m not saying she can’t fight her battles alone, but we all need someone’s shoulder to lean our head on after a hard day.
If you want to make her feel special, then be her safe haven. Be someone she knows she can count on. Be someone who won’t ask questions or make her feel worse when she tells him what happened. Be someone with whom she’ll be able to enjoy the silence, someone with whom she’ll recharge her batteries.
9. Be interested in her life
If you really like this girl and want her to fall for you, you can’t do that by not knowing what’s going on in her life. So, show some interest.
Be genuinely interested in the things she likes, in the things that make her happy, in her future and in everything that inspires her. Ask her how her day was, what her plans are for that day, month, year or her entire life. If this doesn’t make her feel special, I don’t know what will.
10. Listen to her problems
Perhaps there will be things that aren’t so big of an issue, but to her, those things may be the heaviest burden she has ever carried on her shoulders. So before you say how it’s not that big of a deal, listen to what she has to say.
Make sure you’re the first person she’ll come to when she has a problem and make sure she knows she has someone who’ll help her no matter how much she messes up or what happens. If you want to make her feel special, then make sure she knows she isn’t alone in her mess.
11. Don’t let her down
The last thing you would want to do if you want to make your girl feel special is let her down.
She should know that you would never do anything on purpose that would make her feel bad. So show her you won’t ever hurt her and be there when you say you’ll be there. Don’t make promises you won’t be able to keep and don’t turn your back on her when she needs you the most.
12. Be a grown man
Don’t play games with her. Don’t do things immature men or boys do. Admit your feelings to her. Lift her when she falls. Stick to your word. Don’t keep your options open. Take responsibility for your actions. And if you really want to make her special, treat her like a lady.
13. Keep your eyes on her
Always keep your eyes on her. This can’t be stressed enough. The proudest woman is one who can say with confidence that her man only has eyes for her.
When you’re out together, don’t flirt with the waitress. Don’t check out other women and don’t compare your girl with other girls. The best way to make her feel special is to show her you have eyes only for her.
14. Make sure she knows she’s the only one
If you really want to make her feel special, then don’t keep other options open. If you really want her, then focus only on winning her and making her feel special. If you’re texting other girls, if you’re going out with other women, if you’re still online on dating sites, how could you possibly make her feel special?
Do it right and show her she’s the only one. Remind her that she’s the one you want to be with and that she is truly special to you. Don’t just talk about it, do it.
15. Old-fashioned is not too cheesy
Holding doors or opening them for her, paying attention to which side of the sidewalk she’s on, buying her roses, kissing her on the forehead or on the hand will never get outdated. Bringing breakfast in bed, cooking for her, holding her hand in public and other things aren’t cheesy—they are the tools that will help you make her feel special.
16. Show affection publicly
If you’re going to make her feel special when you two are on your own and then pretend like she doesn’t exist in public, then don’t bother doing it at all. Okay, some things should stay private, but the fact that you like her should be shouted out loud publicly.
Not only will you be telling the world how you feel about her, but you’ll also make her feel special if you take her hand in public, if you stand close to her, if you buy her drink or if you proudly introduce her as your girlfriend to your friends or other people you know.
17. Make an effort to get along with her friends and family
If you really want to be different and special in her eyes then it’s up to you to make things work between you and her friends and family. Most likely those will be the people she cares about the most in her life and by getting along with them you’ll be showing her how special she is to you and how much she means to you.
18. Be open and honest
In case you want her to know where she stands in your life then you need to make a spot for her in your life. You need to welcome her and make sure she knows she isn’t just a fling. She needs to know that you’re always going to be upfront with her regarding everything and that you won’t lie to her.
Welcome her into your world and open up to her. Tell her things you never told anyone else. Show her you trust her. That’s how you make her feel special.
19. Give her compliments
But don’t let it be those compliments that anyone could give her. Make sure you compliment the things nobody else sees. Something that makes her special in your eyes. And try to do it on a daily basis too. It will definitely boost her ego and make her feel special.
20. Tell her what you like about her
Maybe you love how she bites her lip when she’s nervous or how she turns her head when she’s shy. Maybe you love her passion or you admire her kindness. Whatever it might be, make sure you don’t keep it to yourself. Feel free to say out loud all the things that only you like about her.
21. Give her small signs of affection
Perhaps you can start with remembering what songs she likes the most and making a playlist just for her in your car. Posting a story with her from time to time will do the job too. Buy her some small things like chocolate or roses occasionally. Brag about her to others. Plan dates. Use whatever you can to make her feel special.
22. Remember special occasions
Never forget her birthday and if you’re a person with a bad memory then just keep a list of all important things and dates. Surprise her for Valentine’s, remember when and where you first kissed her, don’t forget the date when you started the relationship and always do something to celebrate those days.
23. Surprise her
It doesn’t have to be anything big, but organizing a romantic dinner here and there, having your room filled with candles and your bed with roses, or buying her a bag or a dress she’s been talking about for a long time will do the job too. And I don’t even have to talk about a romantic getaway or a picnic under the stars. It might be from a movie seen too many times, but it always works!
24. Text her first
Don’t be one of those guys who waits before they double-text or those who wait for girls to text first. Make sure your name is the first thing she sees on her screen in the morning. Text her just to see how her day was or just to tell her how wonderful she is and how lucky you are to have her in your life.
25. Don’t forget the love notes
Stickers on the mirror, a small letter on her pillow, a message you tuck into her pocket while she isn’t watching or sending an email that tells her how much you love her will make her feel like she’s the only woman in this world.
26. Kiss her
As much as you can, as often as you can and wherever you can. Just a small, gentle kiss on her cheek, a kiss on the shoulder, a hug from the back and a kiss on the neck in front of everyone or when you’re on your own will mean the world to her. Never let your affection get worn out and never let her go to sleep without your kiss.
27. Be consistent
Have something that’s special only for the two of you. It can be a cute goodnight message, it can be a special coffee shop you go to every week, whatever you want, but something that will remind her of you even when you’re away.
28. Talk about the future
This is the ultimate way to make your girl feel special. Knowing that you are planning a future with her and that you want to see her next to you in the days that are yet to come are silent whispers that she is, indeed, someone special to you. That she’s the person you’re planning to spend your life with.
This list of obvious signs shows that you don’t need much to make a woman feel special. To be honest, these are all the things a man who’s truly in love would be willing to do on his own. These are all the things that should come naturally to him. And these are all the things every woman deserves to get in life.
