Having a man who truly cares and loves you is priceless. A man who is protective of you sure knows how to make you feel special and loved in a good way. They let you know that they love you through the little things they do.

Beyond telling you how much they love you, it’s obvious in their actions. Girls generally love guys who pamper them and make them feel like queens, and one of the things that makes girls feel this way is through the cute protective things guys do.

This reminds me of a couple I saw a few weeks ago on my way to the train station. The guy was at the station to welcome his girlfriend and he was there holding flowers. He gave her a tight hug, kissed her forehead, gave her the flowers and placed his hand around her shoulder while she accompanied her to the car and opened the door for her.

Even though I was late for my appointment, I had to watch that because it was an exciting scene to watch. I didn’t know when I said, ‘Aww, that the man must be a true gentleman who loves and cares for his woman. I could tell the lady was happy from the smile on her face. Don’t you think this is cute and protective?

Well, there are different other things that guys do that can be considered cute and protective, so let’s find out more about them.

Cute Protective Things Guys Do

1. They take care of you when you are sick

One of the cute protective things guys do is that they take care of you when you are sick. They shower you with love and care and they pamper you. They ensure that you don’t get yourself involved in anything that will stress you.

They prefer to do anything for you when you are sick. They make sure that they are there to stand by you when you need someone. They don’t mind doing the chores for you because they don’t want to stress you out. It actually shows that the man cares about your well-being.

You would think it’s every guy that can do this but it’s not all guys that would be considerate and nice to you when you are sick. Some men will still want their women to enter the kitchen and fix something for them to eat, even when they know that they are not in good health. I know it’s mean, and that is why I feel having a guy who takes care of you when you are sick is among the cute protective things guys do.

2. He gives you breakfast in bed

If you have ever seen the sight of a man giving a woman breakfast, you would pray for a caring man. I know it’s not every day that a man will do this for you; no, it cannot always happen, but getting up to prepare your meal and feeding you in bed is thoughtful.

That’s sure part of the cute protective things guys do. Caring for you and treating you like a queen by serving you breakfast in bed. You don’t need a lot of money to make a woman happy and appreciate her. Some of these little cute protective things are enough for her to know that you care about her. This is why I said the little things we do matter.

3. He Gives you his jacket when you’re cold

One of the ways a guy makes a woman feel protected and secured is by making sure that she is in good condition. When a guy removes his jacket for you when you are cold, it is a lovely act. It’s not like his body has some resistance against the cold but because he wants you to feel protected, he is willing to feel the cold and let you have his jacket.

4. He holds you in public to make you feel secure

I understand that some people might feel this is a public display of affection but what I see is a man trying to make his woman feel secure and protected and I think this is one of the cute protective things guys do.

You know, when a lady has a man beside her, it boosts her confidence and makes her feel safer. She feels like no harm can come close to her at that moment because she has someone who will defend her.

Besides this, when a man holds a woman’s hand in public, it makes her feel special because it shows that the guy is proud of her and he is not ashamed to show her to the world as his woman.

5. He walks you to your door

Have you ever wondered what makes a guy walk you to the door and allow you to enter before he leaves? So if you don’t know, it’s because the guy is trying to ensure you are safe before he leaves. He wants to make sure that nothing happens to you; he is protecting you because he feels responsible for your safety. So, if you have a man in your life who does this, then lucky you.

6. He defends you

Knowing that there is a man who is ready to defend you makes you feel protected because you know that there is someone who will definitely support you and come to rescue you when you need saving.

One of the cute protective things guys do for women is defend them. He is ready to abandon whatever he is doing when he feels like you are in some kind of danger. He would never watch anyone disrespect you or harass you; he acts like your superhero, someone you can always depend on to come through for you.

7. He assists you with house chores to relieve stress

Helping with chores when he can is one of the things he feels he can do to make things comfortable and convenient for you. Men can be sweet if they want to; he knows you have a lot of chores to do, he’s less busy, and he doesn’t feel it’s a big deal if he assists.

Why I consider it part of the cute protective things guys do is because he is doing this because he does not want his woman to do anything that will stress her, so he will do whatever he can to relieve her from any stress or discomfort.

8. He opens the car door for you

There are men who adore their women and they take every little opportunity they get to let her know this. When a guy opens the car door for a woman, it’s a cute protective act. He is treating her like a queen; he is letting her know that he respects her and adores her. You see, this little act is something and treating a woman in such a special way will make her happy and feel loved. You really don’t have to do too much to make a woman love you. Just treat her right, and you’ll see how sweet and loving she can also be.

9. He provides for you

When a guy is protective of you, he is going to feel responsible for your needs when he can and this is not because you can’t handle these things yourself but because he feels that is the least he can do to make things easy for you.

A protective guy doesn’t want you to worry about anything, let anything trouble you or make you feel disturbed. He just wants to make things less stressful for you. Here is one of the cute protective things guys do.

10. He holds the umbrella for you when it’s raining

The final but not the least, item on the list of cute little things guys do is hold the umbrella for you when it’s raining. Guys who genuinely love their women know how to be protective of their women in a good way.

Tell me to define what it means for a man to act in a cute protective way, and I’ll tell you that being protective is when a man holds the umbrella for a woman when it’s raining. Imagine that sight and tell me what you see. What I see is love. I see a man who is keeping his woman secure and protected.


It only takes a man who loves, respects and adores you to do the cute protective things guys do. A man who doesn’t love you might feel it’s a big deal and have a problem doing that. He might feel that doing all these things will make him a simp. That’s because he doesn’t know the difference between love and simping. They say you can’t give what you don’t have, so if he doesn’t love you, he wouldn’t be able to do any of these.

More importantly, men know what to do; they know how to treat you right if they want to. You don’t have to tell any man how you should be treated; if you have to tell a man how you should be treated, it means he doesn’t really care about you. This is why I would always advise that you be with a man who loves and respects you.
