Make Him a Meal: Yes, it sounds like a tip from a 1950's magazine, but just as it would be a turn-on for him to give up three hours of his life grocery shopping, prepping and chopping, it's a turn-on to him, too. And, more: Researchers say that the old saying that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach is somewhat true. In fact, if your dinner menu includes dessert, that's good. Researchers at the Smell & Taste Research Foundation in Chicago found that sweet scents arouse men more than other aromas that may waft from your kitchen. Don't cook? That's OK. Take him out for dinner (his choice!).

Wear That Dress That He Loves: Maybe it's not your favorite. Maybe you prefer black over the red he likes best, but if you select the outfit you know he loves, you're showing him that you're wearing it for him, and it will show him that he is your priority. (And speaking of red, past research shows that men are more turned on when women wear red—ooh la la!

Give Him a Long Hug: With work and wedding planning and all you both have going on, your interactions may sometimes feel rushed and brief. The advice from relationship experts? It's simple, but essential. Slow things down. Next time you hug him, pause and really hold him—for at least seven seconds, say those in the know. And then look into his eyes. You don't even need to say I love you. He'll know.

Help Him With Something He Hates to Do: Maybe he hates folding his laundry, and you get the job done like a ninja. Or perhaps writing thank you notes is his worst nightmare and you whip them out in minutes. Helping him with a problem project shows him just how true your love is.
