Cuddling with a boyfriend after a long day can be incredibly comforting. However, not all men enjoy cuddling as much as women do. If your boyfriend is not a fan, there may be ways to convince him to give it a try.
1. Don't force it
It is important to remember that cuddling should always be a consensual activity. You should never force or coerce someone into cuddling with you. It is also important not to pressure someone into cuddling as it can make them feel obligated. If someone is not comfortable with cuddling, it is best to respect their boundaries.
2. Be sneaky
It is important to remember that cuddling should be a consensual activity and it should never be forced. However, sometimes it can be tricky to initiate cuddling without being too obvious. One way to do this is to slowly move closer to your partner while you are in bed or lounging on the couch, as if you are just trying to get comfortable. This can make it easier to initiate physical contact and eventually move into cuddling position. It's important to keep in mind that the goal should be to make the experience enjoyable for both parties and not to pressure someone into cuddling.
3. Make sure he's in a good mood
It is important to consider your partner's mood when trying to initiate cuddling. If they are not in the right headspace, they may be less likely to be receptive to your advances. It's best to wait for a time when they are calm and relaxed, as they may be more open to cuddling in that state. Additionally, if you are able to get them to cuddle while they are in a good mood, they may begin to associate cuddling with positive feelings. It's important to remember that cuddling should be a consensual activity and not to pressure someone into cuddling.
4. Show affection outside the bedroom
Cuddling is a great way to show someone affection, but it is important to remember that it should not be the only way to show someone that you care. Showing your partner affection throughout the day can make them more willing to reciprocate in the evening when it comes time for cuddling. Simple gestures such as holding hands, giving a shoulder rub, or finding ways to remind your partner of your connection on a regular basis can make them more open to cuddling. It's important to remember that not everyone is comfortable with cuddling and this should be respected. If, despite your efforts, your partner is not willing to cuddle, it may be worth evaluating the dynamic of the relationship.
5 Tell him you like it
Encourage an anti-cuddling partner to try cuddling by expressing how much you enjoyed it. Communicate your need for cuddle time and explain why it is important to you. If they care about your happiness, they may be more willing to participate.
6. Look good and smell nice
It may seem strange to put effort into your appearance before cuddling, but it can help form a positive association with the activity for a partner who is not naturally inclined to cuddle. Initially, making an effort to look nice before initiating cuddling may increase their receptiveness to the activity. With time and persistence, this may no longer be necessary.
7. Do more than cuddle
Cuddling doesn't have to lead to sex, but it can be a way to make it more appealing to a partner. Adding other activities such as quick kisses, nuzzling, or flirty small talk can make cuddling more enjoyable and less monotonous. Remember, cuddling alone may not be enough for some partners and you may need to try different methods to make it more appealing to them.
8. Try out different positions
It's possible that your boyfriend doesn't enjoy cuddling because he's not comfortable in the position. There are several cuddling positions that couples can try, so suggest experimenting with new positions to find one that's comfortable for both of you. This is a reasonable request, and a good partner should be willing to try.
9. Be willing to be the big spoon
It's important for women to be willing to take on the role of the big spoon in cuddling. Many men enjoy being the little spoon and being cuddled. It's a two-way street and some men enjoy when women initiate cuddling by being the big spoon. Remember, being open to different roles in cuddling can make it more enjoyable for both partners.
