5 Ways to Show Your Partner You’re in Love
There are a million ways to show the one you love just how much you care. These loving acts can make the difference between a mutually supportive and emotionally engaging relationship and one that you just let happen on its own. The more energy you put into loving, the more love you will get in return. It’s that simple. Here are a few suggestions.
1. Remember to flirt.
I know you remember how, but perhaps you could step up your game a little. Couples that engage in flirtation with each other have more fulfilling lives in general and much better sex than those who just go to bed and “do it.”
2. Listen to your lover.
I’d been using terms of endearment when checking in with my mate, but after a couple months, she asked me to call her by her name instead of “Honey.” It made her feel that my words were meant just for her. It was an easy change that paid good dividends. She felt heard and got what she needed, and anytime that can happen, it’s a good thing.
3. Experience new things together.
Couples who do things together that they have never done before get closer in the process because those new experiences release the hormoneoxytocin, also known as “the cuddle hormone.” Even if you were a little anxious about going into that shark cage, you will have many stories to tell later and a lot of energy to share.
4. Keep each other healthy.
Don’t become a dictator, but when you see your partner making a poor choice, say something. I like it when my partner brings me a bottle of water and takes my soft drink away. I’m all for healthy choices, but I need a little help making them from time to time.
5. Build something together.
It doesn’t matter what. It can be as simple as planting new flowers or as dynamic as starting a business. Yes, there will be some work, but the closeness you experience as a result can make it seem more like a break from your regular life than a chore.
