There are things dudes want from you but will never tell you that they do. I honestly don’t know why they don’t communicate their needs more clearly; it would certainly make things easier if they did. I think part of the reason they don’t is that they don’t think we need to be told. They really believe we know these things about them but sometimes we just don’t. Let’s talk about the things dudes want from you but will never tell you.

1. Respect

Through much reading and research, I have learned that men desperately want respect from the chiqs in their life. If you are in doubt of this, ask your guy and see what his response is. This is one of the most important things dudes want from you but will never tell you. So, what does it really mean to give a guy respect? Simply put, it means that you give their thoughts, ideas, actions and feelings merit. It means that you think that he is important and you show it with your actions.

2. Admiration

Going hand in hand with respect is admiration. Guys typically love admiration, but there is a catch to this. It has to be sincere for it to work. Guys seem to have a radar to catch any insincere compliment you give them. But as long as you are telling him something you genuinely appreciate about him, he will be very pleased to hear it.

3. A Pleasant Tone of Voice

Dudes appreciate a pleasant tone of voice with the chiqs they are in a relationship with, and really, don’t we all? All of us appreciate a nice, friendly tone of voice. Of course, you won’t have a pleasant tone of voice all the time but it is something you can try to work on. In fact, it is something that we can work on with everyone in our life. People respond much better to one another when they are speaking and hearing a kind tone of voice.

4. Encouragement

Dudes like and need encouragement. They like to know that the woman they love is in their corner, cheering them on. Your belief in them is important. They think that if you believe in them then surely they can accomplish whatever obstacles they are up against in their life. In return, you will find they are always in your corner.

5. Appreciation

Dudes like to be appreciated and it doesn’t take a lot to express this. A simple ‘thank you’ accompanied by a sweet smile can go far in showing you appreciate whatever it is they are doing for you.  Whatever it is he is doing for you, appreciating the act will endear you to him. You will probably find that he wants to do more for you when you appreciate his efforts.

6. Recognition

Sometimes, dudes have to play many different roles and they do a lot for their friends and families. Take time to mention these things to the dude in your life. Men rarely get recognized for all that they do for others and he’s sure to appreciate the recognition.

7. Support

We all need a good support network and dudes are no different. Let him know that you’re behind him all the way and no matter how far fetched the goal might seem to you, if it’s important to your guy, he wants it to be important to you, too.

8. Desired

Even if you think he knows you want him, show him anyway! Dudes want to feel desired and when he doesn’t feel wanted by you, it can get to his confidence. Flirt with him, let him know that you’re excited by him and that you feel lucky to be with him!
