8 Ways to Get His Attention!
Our focus is on love in marriage this week. We all want our husbands to really hear what we say. It’s far too common to get caught up in miscommunication and eventually tune each other out. A relationship cannot grow when either party has stopped listening. What things can you say to encourage the man in your life to hear you? What can you say to get his attention?
“I enjoy being with you”
In a relationship, both of you can feel as though you are being taken for granted once in a while. When your spouse is not feeling too sure of himself, let him know you enjoy spending time with him and being in a relationship with him. It cannot be a bad thing to reassure your partner of your affection.
“I agree with you”
For men, respect is high on their list and you agreeing with them is one step in the right direction. Come to think of it, who doesn’t love to hear that they are right? When your partner makes a decision or comes to a way of thinking that you agree with, let him know. It is a great encouragement for him to hear that you agree with what he is thinking on an issue.
“You’re a hard worker”
Working hard is where many men get a great sense of accomplishment. When one has been working hard and sacrificing for a good outcome, it’s nice to receive a proverbial pat on the back. Compliment your husband on his great work ethic and make a positive difference in his day.

“You should relax and rest”
You have seen that he works hard, encourage him to take some time off. When a man is dedicated to his job or providing for his family, he often takes this to the extreme. He may need a gentle reminder to take some time off and relax, and he will definitely thank you for it when he does.
“I’m proud of you”
In line with giving the respect, your husband desires this is a phrase that he would appreciate. In a healthy relationship, both parties have a deep respect for each other. It’s not easy living life without recognition of your efforts. It makes a world of difference hearing your partner say they are proud of you.
“I’m attracted to you”
Relationships tend to get monotonous after a while and just a few words can spice it up a bit. However long you have been together, let your partner know you are still very much attracted to him. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a couple in your 20s or your 80s. Nothing will get your guy’s attention and give him an instant boost of self-esteem like hearing you say you think he’s still hot.
There are quite a few times someone makes sacrifices in a relationship, the best reward is a “thank you” from the one you made those sacrifices for. When your partner has gone the extra mile, let him know how deeply you appreciate his care. Even for the seemingly simple things, thank you is totally acceptable.
“I love you”
Sometimes these words become routine and seem to lose the deep feeling behind them, but it is important for your husband to know that you love him. Catch him at an unexpected moment and say these words. Never underestimate their power.
No matter how long you have been married, there are some words that are sure to get the attention of the man in your life. Choose a phrase and communicate your feelings to your partner. A few words can go a long way.
