There are a thousand more elements to a relationship other than sex and romance. A relationship is not a destination, but a journey. It’s a work in progress that requires both the partners to be thoughtful, considerate, and caring for each other.
There are little things you can do to show your partner that you love them and care for them, and such sweet acts mean more than three words of “I love you.”
We present a list of things you can do on a daily basis to show your love and make them smile:
#1. Cook their favourite food for them
Cooking and feeding your loved one is the best way to show that you love them. And it’s something that has been true for millions of years, in every animal species giving food to your partner is seen as a sign of love and care.
#2. Wash and fold their clothes when you can
If your partner keeps busy at work or studies, then you can show them you care by washing their clothes and folding them neatly. It takes a little of your time, but it is incredibly helpful for your busy partner. And it is a sweet gesture they’ll appreciate with all their heart.
#3. Leave random notes of love and appreciation
Write cute little messages on sticky notes and put them at different places in your house – on the dressing table mirror, in the bathroom, over the kitchen sink, on the fridge, etc. Finding an expected note with a sweet message will bring a smile to your partner’s face, and this small gesture will make them feeling good all day.
#4. Keep fresh towels for them when they come back from work
When people get back home tired from work, change clothes, freshen themselves up – and finding a set of warm, fresh towels might just lift their spirits. They will feel more relaxed and will be ready soon to spend time with you.
#5. Make space for “us” time
Make sure that you leave your phone aside, keep friends and family at bay for a while, stay away from the TV and any other activities – to create some space and take out some time for just the two of you. It’s necessary for a couple to have some time everyday which is just for the two of them, it will help you bond better with your partner.
#6. Wear their favorite costumes
If your partner likes a particular superhero/superheroine, any anime or fantasy character, or even the plain roleplay of firefighters or nurses – join in the fun, do what they like, and they’ll do what you like and you both will have the time of your lives.
#7. Give them unexpected hugs and kisses
Once a relationship reaches the point when both the people are physically comfortable with each other, and understand each other’s body language – be sure to show physical affection whenever you can. Affectionate touches, hugs, and kisses go a long way in boosting a person’s mental health, and makes them feel good all day long. A gentle hug or kiss when they are working or doing something, will instantly make them smile.
#8. Send sweet texts
Take some time of your day to send a sweet little text or a wholesome meme to your partner. It’s hard to spend time away from each other when both of you are at work, so sending a text shows to your partner that you are thinking of them and missing them.
#9. Be a part of something they enjoy doing
Every person has something they really enjoy doing and sometimes it happens that their partner doesn’t enjoy the same thing. Occasionally take some time to be a part of things they enjoy: be it sports, dance, shopping, or anything.
#10. Listen to their problems and be supportive
Every person goes through a difficult time in their life, be there for them, hold their hand and listen to their problems. Offer to help them if you can, and do something that they need you to do. Most important thing is to that you are present when they need you, and even if you find yourself unable to help then least you can do to reduce the burden on your partner by doing some tasks for them so that they feel better.
