Tell Her What You're Thinking

Sometimes I am just amazed that my wife picked me. Do you know what I mean? Sometimes I watch her do the cute things she does and I can't feel more in love with her. I know I married way out of my league and I couldn't be more thankful that she actually wants to be with me.

There are times when I'm watching her from across the room and think, Man, she is so beautiful. She was a bridesmaid in a wedding recently and I thought, Wow, she's really giving the bride a run for her money! In so many moments I remember who I am and who she is and I feel like the luckiest man in the world.

And today I want to share a little trick I've learned to make your wife feel like the woman you know she is:

Tell her what you're thinking.

Seriously, the next time you catch yourself thanking your lucky stars for the woman sitting next to you, tell her that the next chance you get. Or if you're admiring her across the room at some event, take the first moment you can to tell her how beautiful she is and how much you enjoyed watching her from across the room.

Our wives want to hear that we're still infatuated with them. We have these thoughts, so why not share them? Put your feelings into words and tell her. She'll love you more for it.


  1. i'm the wife of a man who "married up" as he says, and i always love it when he tells me that (even though i don't agree), it still makes me feel loved, appreciated, and awesome

    and it makes me laugh soo hard

  2. I know exactly what you are feeling. I feel the same way about my wife!

    I tell her all the time. It's so easy to do, just open your mouth and say the words you're thinking!

  3. My wife and I are having so many problems now, she's actually said she doesn't want to hear this! It's always, "If you love me so much why do you do ..." The thing is, I'm absolutely crazy about her. It's frustrating.

  4. Definitely take the hint, then, anonymous.

    Our words mean absolutely nothing if they are not accompanied by our actions. If I always tell me wife that I love her but continue to do things I know she hates, then that's not going to prove that I love her.

    If you're crazy about her the way you are, take the hint. Sit down with her and ask, "How can I show you I love you more?" Write the list down. Work on it.
