Do what you like

A big hug after a me-time
Every relationship needs space and so do the individuals in it. When you go away with your girl friends for the weekend make sure come back and give him a mighty big hug. This will tell him how much you missed him while you were away. Making it an even bigger one when he comes from a camping trip with his buddies will show him you love him, instead of sulking for leaving you behind for the weekend.
Be loving all the time

It’s as if you are waiting for things to go wrong and the moment they do you berate yourself or shout at him, instead of repairing the damage. Learn to love without expectations so that the disappointments are less. Teach him gently about romance but try not to put him down for being too pragmatic. He does love you in his own way.
