I struggle with showing affection. I know it is what usually ruins things for me, but I just get so nervous that I can't even think of something nice to say even if I really like him. My ex and I are trying things again and I want to be more affectionate. Do you have any examples of sweet things I could say or do when the opportunity presents itself?

Yes! I think that when you are together and joking around or something rub your fingers through his hair, and tell him he looks super sexy. Another thing you could do is when he does something nice for you or too you, tell him you know It really makes me feel when you are good to me like this, guys like these kind of comments cause it shows them you notice the things they are doing, and it shows you care. keep an eye out for the small things he does for you, and tell him how much they mean to you. also compliment him on the more manly aspects that you notice, and also you can smile and tell him he is funny when he makes a joke. Another way you can show affection, and is a really good one that can really spark a fire, and I know this sounds weird but it works, is play wrestling when you two are joking around try to tickle his stomach and get him to play with you it is great fun.1

I'm always touching my partner - his hair, his neck or back, hand on his hip or holding his hand. It's a comfort thing for me I think, and he has grown so used to it that if it's not happening he things something is wrong.
I try to compliment his appearance, especially if he's taken extra care whether it's a shirt I like or his haircut was a particularly good one. Its not everyday but at least a few times a week.1
