When you’re in love, there aren’t enough happy things that you can’t wait to do with your significant other. You’re always looking for one way or the other to express your love. Girls feel that their better halves just stop trying to woo her or win her affections after the initial stage or the ‘honeymoon period’ passes. This is the time when insecurities arise and fights happen. Us girls don’t expect you guys to forever act in that same manner when you were trying to woo us, but little efforts to show your affection for us goes a long way. They don’t have to be grand gestures, but little gestures so that we don’t feel like you’ve lost interest in us, and that we haven’t lost that spark.

Here are 23 little things you can do for your girlfriend to make her heart melt!

1. Cuddle with her, just hold her and talk to her.

Girls love being cuddled. Once in a while, have a heart to heart with her when you two are snuggled up in bed. Talk. Talk about random stuff, anything that comes to mind, your dreams, your fears, your life, anything at all to make your girl feel closer to you. Cuddling your girlfriend will release chemicals that’ll make her feel more happy and loved.

2. Tell her she’s your best friend.

Nothing beats the feeling I got when my other half told me I was his best friend. Trust me, it just made my heart melt and my eyes tear up.
