Even if you and your partner can tell each other just about everything, there are some things men just aren’t comfortable asking for—either because they feel it will make them seem high maintenance, it will make you upset, or it just makes them appear needy. You probably have some things like that, that you’d like to ask your partner, right? So it stands to reason that he does, too. You know that men have their precious egos to protect and sometimes wouldn’t dare to admit that they want to, for example, wear your fluffy robe with the clouds all over it because damn it’s cozy. And you know there are probably some ways they could ask you to clean up your act, but if they did, you’d have a laundry list of things they could do better, too. But, in case you were wondering, here are things your partner wants you to do but wouldn’t dare ask.


Acknowledge his hard work

You know that he works hard and you love his ambition. But do you tell him enough? While he works hard or himself, he also works hard for you. He wants to provide for you. He wants you to be proud of him. So don’t just think, “My man works so hard”—tell him.
