Sometimes, the truth hurts, and the truth is, there are some things your boyfriend wants to tell you but doesn’t because he cares about you and doesn’t want to hurt your feelings.
Well, here are 10 things he wishes he could say without the sugarcoating:
1. He Doesn’t Like Calling To Say Goodnight
Men don’t like being forced into things; they enjoy doing things organically. They like to call you because they want to call, not because they’re being forced to do so.
He knows you think it’s sweet when he calls to say goodnight, so he does it to make you happy. But really, he doesn’t want to.
2. He Notices Those Five Extra Pounds
When you’re a new couple, you’re usually dining out a lot and eating really delicious food. Sometimes, you put on what I like to call, “couples weight.”
You know, the few extra pounds that magically appear from dining out and not going to the gym because you’re so busy spending time with each other.
Don’t stress; your man has them, too. Just because he notices the extra few pounds doesn’t mean he isn’t still attracted to you. He just wants his woman to look super amazing all the time.
3. He Wants You To Show Some Skin
Men are visual. As much as you love your baggy sweatpants and oversized t-shirts, he doesn’t.
He appreciates when you put effort into your appearance, even if you’re just going to a casual dinner. Plain and simple, your boyfriend wants you to dress up.
4. He Craves More Sex
Men like to feel wanted and needed; it’s part of their DNA. They’re always thinking about sex and can never have too much of it.
Your man wants to have the same sexual relationship you had when you first started dating.
5. He Doesn’t Think You Need So Much Makeup
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but men don’t die for makeup. They don’t notice the extra highlighter you put on your cheekbones or if your eyeliner is blue or black.
Unless your man is Kanye West, he probably doesn’t really know anything about makeup.
Most men aren’t fans of women looking like they just got glammed up for the Grammys. Keep in mind that your man wants you to look like yourself.
6. He Likes Your Family, But Doesn’t Want To Be With Them 24/7
Family is always a touchy subject. Every man knows that when he dates you, he’s also getting involved with your family. But, he never wants to feel like he’s dating your family.
Of course, he respects and cares about them, but he doesn’t need to be with them every weekend.
7. He Likes Hanging Out With His Friends
Men crave guy time. They need time to unwind and be men. Whether it’s sitting around drinking beer or going out to watch the game, he likes hanging out with his friends.
He wants to tell you that he needs more man time, but he doesn’t want to offend you.
8. He Wants A Man Cave
Whoever invented the concept of a man cave is a genius. A man cave is safe place where he can be silly, childish and stupid.
He’ll never tell you, but he loves the idea of having a room to himself to do whatever he pleases.
9. He Would Love More Adventure
As happy as he is with your sex life, your boyfriend can always be happier. He would love to try something new in the bedroom, but he doesn’t know how to break this to you without being offensive.
This doesn’t mean he wants you to go all "Fifty Shades of Grey" or have a threesome, but a new position or some sexy lingerie could really spruce things up.
10. He Enjoys Staying Home
Going out is fun, but it can get tiring. Your man likes a balance. He enjoys a home-cooked meal and cuddling on the couch more than you likely think.
