There is a chance of promotion on the horizon and your boyfriend has been working hard to earn it, but the harsh reality is that he didn’t get the promotion he was hoping for. What can you do to show your support? Based on the survey we conducted, here are some types of encouragement that men appreciated after losing a promotion at work.
1. “There is always next time.” Give him hope for the future.
“Try again next time.” Your simple but encouraging words can help lift him out of his misery. If you find him dwelling on the past too much, get him to focus on the future instead. A gentle pat on his back will energize him, both literally and figuratively.
