As women, we have a little soft spot in our husband's hearts...and we shouldn't take advantage of that. You should do things for your husband, and he should do things for you because you love each other and because marriage is a team effort. But the things is, sometimes you want your man to go an extra mile or two for you. After all, you are the loving wife who takes care of everything at home, who cooks, cleans and takes care of the little ones. Why shouldn't he run to the store to get an extra carton of eggs?
Here are some smooth tricks to use when you want your hubby to do you a favor; just don't abuse them!
1. Warm him up
Go ahead and bat those pretty lashes and give him a big grin. Not only will your man go weak at the knees, he won't be able to refuse your request. Trying so hard to get him to do what you want will appeal to his protective nature. Ultimately, he'll want to make his wife happy...because, as we all know, having a happy wife means having a happy life.
2. Be a damsel in distress
He is your husband; not only does he love you but he seeks to see you happy. If you play the role of being a damsel in distress he'll feel the urge to help you out. Act like you're having a hard time opening that jar and watch him snatch it right out of your hands. Watch for that smirk on his face as you hear the lid pop open. Your man loves to help you out.
3. Give a little, get a little
This is handy trick to use when you know you are asking for a bit too much. Point out how much you've accomplished today and ask him for a favor. Let's say you recorded the game, cooked, did the dishes after, put the kids to bed and all you really want is for someone to do the laundry. He'll realize how much that would help you out and you'll get your wish.
4. Give him a massage
This is the oldest trick in the book. While giving your husband a little back rub, ask for a favor. Your massage will feel so good, he'll do whatever you ask. Just a word of advice; ask your favor then stop the massage or else your husband might fall asleep and snore through your request!
I'm not talking a normal peck on the lips or an ordinary kiss that lasts for a few seconds. Look him in the eyes, lean in slowly and kiss your husband. Give him a kiss that will surprise him. Kiss him like it's the last time you'll ever get the chance. Wait to ask your favor until the moment you pull away and look into his eyes; he'll be surprised and enthralled and perfectly happy to take the trash out to the curb.
These tricks do come in handy and are fine to use as long as your remember how hard your husband works. At the end of the day, he's tired too. Don't take advantage of your mister but it's okay to occasionally ask him to do things for you. As a man in love, he will be willing to do anything you ask.
