Maybe you’re worried about the spark going in your relationship, or perhaps your partner is going through a hard time and you want to support them and show them you care. It’s much easier than you think to do this, here are three simple ways to show love.
Cook for them
Cooking for someone is such a nice thing to do, it shows you’ve put time and effort into something for them and lets face it, everyone likes to eat. Even if you’re the cook and make most of the meals each week, every now and then you could do something a bit more special. If you don’t usually do the cooking then any effort you make is going to be appreciated and a nice surprise. Go online and find a recipe you’re comfortable in making.
Dont overlook small gestures
Often it’s the really small things in a relationship that someone does for you that makes you know that they care. This is something you can definitely utilise to show your partner that you’re thinking about them, don’t feel like it always has to be wild romantic gestures for them to notice. You could run them a bath ready for when they get home from work each day, lay out their pyjamas on the bed. You could look into essential oils for romance and give them a massage, or make them a cup of tea before work. Life tends to be routine, pretty mundane everyday things for the majority of our time, so it’s important to find small ways to make this time special. Reading them a poem you’ve written at the top of the eiffel tower or throwing them a huge surprise party for their birthday are wonderful ideas, but that only makes up a very small proportion of your time together. So the smaller, day to day things are important.
When you’ve been in a relationship with someone for a long time, it’s easy to take them a little for granted. It’s not that you don’t care about them or love them, but you’re so used to them being there that you stop giving them your full attention when its needed. You might ask them about their day, and then zone out when they tell you. You might ‘tune out’ during arguments when really, just listening would allow you to resolve a lot of issues. Have a chat with your partner each day and really listen when they’re speaking to you, don’t worry about what’s on the tv or your mobile phone for a few minutes. It’s a great way to stay connected and keep the bond and spark that you have. If you feel that you’re drifting apart from each other then something as simple as this
