Because of all of the stereotypes out there about what males and females like and don’t like, a lot of girls assume that the only way to keep their boyfriends satisfied is by doing sexual things. That is totally not true! There are plenty of other things that make guys happy besides sex and it’s actually unfair to assume any differently.
Don’t believe me? This Reddit thread asking guys about the best non-sexual things their girlfriends can do for them is proof. A bunch of different dudes answered and explained the non-sexual things they like the most. This stuff is good to know whether you’re having sex or not if you want to have a great, happy relationship. Also, it’s interesting. Here are 10 non-sexual things you can do for your boyfriend, according to Reddit users:
Scratch His BackGr33nman460 said: Scratch my back, oh God, the feels. I can totally relate. I love when my boyfriend scratches my back. Aaahhhh. Source: ShutterStock
Take Him Shoppingcomrade_brony said: The best things that my SO's ever did for me: 1) be themselves, all that fakey stuff is really false advertising and makes you think your SO will be quite different, until things get seriously awkward. 2) Take me clothes shopping, for me. One of my prior GF's gave me a wardrobe makeover, it was great fun, I looked great in my 2 new outfits, and we bonded over it. 3) Actually listen and be interested in the things I am saying. I need my SO to actually know what I care about. Got kind of awkward when I was like "so I'm off to the protest!" What? "I didn't know you even cared about that!" "Umm, yeah, I have been talking about this for weeks." "We have plans with my mom!" "no, you have plans, see ya!" This guy had a lot to say, but everything seems pretty solid. And it's nice to know that guys appreciate when we help them with their wardrobe! Source: ShutterStock
Sympathize With HimVyous said: More than anything: comfort and sympathize. Sex and other quick things can be nice, but what makes a lasting relationship is the ability to revel in my successes with me, and comfort me in my failures. Well said! I agree. Source: ShutterStock
Just Be His GirlfriendFreupeuteu said: Prove to all the other males that I have the ability to have a girlfriend. Well... okay? Source: ShutterStock
Be Loyal and Put Down Your PhoneAndrewKahle said: Love me. Don't go chasing after every guy and flirt with everybody. Don't flirt with my friends. It's okay to think someone's cute, but don't be the chick that makes a guy feel downright awful about himself. Spend time with me, enjoy me being around. Don't stare at your phone all the damn time, and especially, don't try to hide your phone. Even if it's just the way you are, it freaks some people out. I get the phone thing. It's annoying when you're hanging with your SO (or anyone) and they look at their phone the whole time. The flirting thing, too. That's even worse! Source: ShutterStock
Scratch His Headdemampcamp said: Head scratches. Nothing I want more after a long hard day. Moral of the story: things being scratched feels good. Source: ShutterStock
Support HimLiteSh0w9 said: Be there for me when I need support. Simple, but very true. Don't assume that guys don't need you to be there emotionally for them. Source: ShutterStock
Admit If Someone Is Flirting With YouMoonunit99 said: And if I tell you that dude is hitting on you, take my word for it. I don't care a great a friend he is, how "nice" he is, or how long you've known him; he's not sending you pics of him in the gym so you can give him tips on form. I have been a single male attracted to a girl in a relationship: I know these things. This sounds annoying, but I can see what he's saying. Whenever girls would flirt with my ex and I would tell him that, he would always deny it and it was really annoying. Just admit it! Source: ShutterStock
Just... Be There?walkeronline said: Exist... :'( Aw. That's sad :( Source: ShutterStock
Hug Himsavoytruffle said: Smile and hug me. Sometimes a simple hug can be the best way to make someone happy. Source: ShutterStock
