Have you ever been in a long-term relationship with a partner? Perhaps there are times when you wish they could be more vocal with their feelings and thoughts? After all, no one is a mind reader, unless by some stroke of luck one is blessed with that gift just like Nick Marshall in the movie “What do women want“.
So riding on the premise that most mortal would also like to hear positive expressions from their partners, we present here, a list of 10 ten things that men long to hear in a relationship according to an article on msn.com. As an aside, we would like to also add that saying these things within their proper context should not detract a person’s other tendency to show their feelings. It is hoped that the two should complement each other and at the end of the day, every couple would be able to strike out the balance that works for them.
But beware of insincerity, because that sucks and does no one any good. Be honest first to the person and most importantly, to yourself.
1. YOU MAKE MY LIFE COMPLETE
If it’s the case, let your man know ladies, don’t hold back when it comes to expressing your feelings, show him just how much he means to you.
2. I’D BE LOST WITHOUT YOU
If your man guides you and helps you find the right path, let him know how much he is appreciated and loved.
3. YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING
Yes, ladies, this is perhaps the ultimate phrase men want to hear, they too need to be reassured at times.
4. YOU ARE MY STRENGTH
Does your man help you deal with your problems and help you find solutions to your dilemmas? If so, he is definitely a source of strength for you, so what are you waiting for? Let him know how precious he is to you!
5. YOU INSPIRE ME
You may not realise it, but your man is probably one of the biggest sources of inspiration and motivation in your life, so let him know how much of a positive influence he is.
6. YOU ARE MY FUTURE
Planning your future with your partner is one thing, but making him aware that he is your everything is a bonus for him, it’ll be like music to his ears.
7. I WANT TO BUILD A LIFE WITH YOU

Like us, guys also have physical complexes and need to be reassured about just how handsome and hot you find them. Telling them how gorgeous they are will do amazing things for their self-esteem.
9. I WOULDN’T CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP
Your relationship no doubt has ups and downs; but in your eyes, everything is still totally awesome, you wouldn’t change a thing. Your partner may not be the richest or the most handsome, but that’s okay, you love him for who he is.
10. YOU ARE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
Let your partner know just how much he fulfils you and that you want to spend the rest of your life with him. He’ll be over the moon at you expressing your sincerest feelings.
