It can be tough watching your boyfriend feel down in the dumps. When you truly care about somebody, the last thing you want is for them to feel gloomy and sad. When your boyfriend is unhappy, whether it's due to job stress or a fight with a friend, take action and make him feel like smiling again.
One way to ease tension is by giving someone a soothing head massage. Watch his stress melt away as you massage his head, which is effective for calming the mind and enhancing blood circulation. If your boyfriend is dealing with worries and anxieties this can work like a charm. Plus, your physical touch is a cute way to show that you are thinking of him and want him to feel better -- immediately.
The old saying that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach has some truth to it. If your boyfriend is feeling down, take the time to whip up his absolute favorite food for him. Whether it's comfort food such as macaroni and cheese or warm and gooey chocolate chip cookies, get his mind off of his woes by satisfying his appetite.
Spend some alone time with your boyfriend and have a moviethon together. Curl up in front of the television and pop in DVD or several. Whether you're watching adrenaline-inducing action flicks or laugh-out-loud guy comedies, movies work wonders for escapism and getting the mind off of troubles. For added fun, get a batch of popcorn ready.
If your boyfriend is feeling bad, get his mind out of his situation by providing him with a fresh change of scenery. Sometimes getting out of the house is all a person needs to snap out of a funk. Consider tranquil, quiet and relaxing locales, such as lakes, beaches and botanical gardens. Perhaps consider packing a couple of bagged lunches and enjoying a little picnic together while soaking up the picturesque surroundings.
"I Love You"
Sometimes the simplest gestures can make a world of difference. One sincere, cute and meaningful way to cheer up an unhappy boyfriend is by looking him in the eye and telling him how much he means to you. A classic "I love you" can mean the world to someone who, for whatever reason, is feeling very badly at the moment. Remind him that he has something to smile about and that you are there for him, through the good times and the bad.
