When living with a long term partner, it is easy to fall into a rut with your relationship and lose sight of those small things that you used to do for one another. When in a relationship with someone you adore, there is no better feeling. But it is important now and again to show your partner in little ways how much you care for them and appreciate them.
Today we want to take a look at some of the small things you can do in your life to show your partner that you care for them and love them. Strengthening your bond this way is something that will change your lives for the better.
Little touches can be anything from stroking your partner’s hair to squeezing their hand as you walk by. Small acts of affection such as this can reaffirm your love for your partner and it will make them feel special and loved. By using these little touches on a daily basis you will be showing your other half how important they are to you and they will feel so much better for it.
It is important to keep that spark alive even after a number of years together, and one sweet way to do this is with some love notes in your partner’s lunch box or in their wallet as they leave the house. Little surprise notes that say I love you or even ones telling a funny joke will lift their spirits and ensure that no matter where they are in the world, they know that you are right there by their side.
Open your mind
One of the things you will learn as you grow into a relationship is that everyone has their own fetishes and little quirks you didn’t know about before. Whether your partner has a love for foot fetish pics or they want to see you dressed as Princess Leia – revoking your control now and again and being open to something new as a couple is magical and can work wonders for you both. By showing that you are willing to trust them and open yourself up to these experiences you will gain so much love and admiration.
One of the best things you can do to show your partner you care is to offer a little surprise now and again. The surprise doesn’t have to be extravagant – simply bringing home a coffee and a croissant for breakfast can be enough, simply the knowledge you were thinking of them while you were out and about is enough.
Cook them dinner
One of the easiest ways to show your love and appreciation for your partner is to cook them a lovely meal. Being able to show your love through food is always a great thing, and the care and time you put into preparation of a meal can be a love language in itself.
