“If I know what love is, it is because of you.” – Herman Hesse.
We should remember that communication is essential, particularly in a romantic relationship. And it’s not about the inevitable daily conversations between you and your partner that I am talking about. Making an effort and going out of your way to shower your boyfriend or girlfriend with compliments could bring your relationship to the next level.
We all expect personal attitude on our birthday, anniversary, or on Valentine’s Day since these are special occasions celebrated all around the world. However, we should not be afraid to behave romantically and be sentimental with our loved one every single day.
Try to act out of the box and show your feelings to your partner on an ordinary day.
When you say something thoughtful and cute to your loved person on a typical day, they would most probably feel special and might even return the gesture with their own romantic words for you. But, coming up with ideas about things to say to your partner isn’t easy, not because you do not care about them, but because we tend to forget what are the vital things our loved people give us.
That is why below you could check the list of 7 significant reasons why you should show your partner how much you love them even on ordinary days.
And how much you care about your relationship:
1. Memories of your prior time together.
Try sending your loved one a flirty text or asking if he or she remembers a time when you did something together. It is a great thing to do for your relationship when you’re in love.
Anita A. Chlipala, who is a certified marriage and family therapist and author of First Comes Us: The Busy Couple’s Guide to Lasting Love, confirms this. She explains that sending such texts to your partner can help the two of you remain connected with each other:
“Recalling positive memories has so many benefits, including increasing positivity into the relationship and about your partner, increasing feelings of attachment, and creating opportunities for inside jokes.”
2. Paying your partner meaningful compliments will help your bond get stronger every day.
That’s why people in love will tell each other on a regular basis how awesome they are. On the top of that, praising your loved one is right for both partners. Saying to your significant other that they are the best or that they make you extremely happy also gives you a chance to take a moment out of your day and think how blessed you are for having this partner. So, don’t forget to tell your boyfriend or husband how much you admire them and make them feel like they are your hero. Or try to remind at least once a day to your wife or girlfriend how beautiful she is.
I say this to my husband once or more every day: “You’re the best husband in the whole world.”
And trust me it has a fantastic effect both on his self-esteem and his attitude towards me.
3. You are always happy to have them by your side.
Although at times you might get annoyed with your partner a pure and healthy relationship can only be one where two people don’t get tired of each other. If you don’t get sick of each other, this means your relationship works. Here is what Stef Safran, matchmaker and dating expert, says about this:
“Life gets complicated and busy.” “However, if you don’t remember to make time (sans kids, job responsibilities, and family) you could forget about how things were when there were fewer responsibilities.” Couples who keep things interesting know how to prioritize the relationship and make an effort to be with each other. They don’t just make time when they can; they fit time into their already busy schedules.
4. You both always give, without expecting anything in return.
Nowadays, more and more people are that overwhelmed by their own lives to the point they forget to pay attention even to their closest ones. So, if your partner is always willing to help you, then you have one more reason to feel extremely lucky and happy to have them. Furthermore, they would always be there for you without asking or expecting anything in return which is a proof of pure love. And you shouldn’t forget to show and tell them how happy you are to have someone who loves you this way by your side.
5. Their personality inspires you.
If your partner’s inner strength is inspiring for you and makes you feel lucky to see them succeeding, you have another good reason to tell your partner every day that you love them. After all, not everyone is blessed with a significant other who works hard and is determined to be perfect at everything they do. And if their example is something that keeps your spirits high, then you have to tell them about it more often.
6. Intimacy with your partner makes you happy.
Sex plays a significant role in a healthy relationship and is one of the factors that influence the attachment level of the partners. So good sex means a healthy and happy couple. Here is what Wendi L. Dumbroff, MA, LPC couples therapist says:
“It’s important to talk about your needs and desires, and listen to your partner’s as well. It doesn’t necessarily mean everything each of you might be interested in will happen, but being able to have honesty around your sexual desires is sure to create closeness and maybe a few fireworks here and there.”
So, if you are satisfied with the sex you make with your loved one, you have one more reason to feel attached to them and to show this to them very often.
7. Small things make you happy.
If you’ve been together with your partner for a long time, the big holidays or presents aren’t as significant as the small ordinary things you would do about each other. Here is what Susan Trombetti, matchmaker and owner of Exclusive Matchmaking says:
“They have learned to enjoy life’s simple pleasure whatever that means to them, whether it be going to Starbucks for a coffee on Saturday, listening to a song on the radio that they both love, or sharing inside jokes,”
So never forget to show to your partner how much you love them by making a delicious dinner or leaving a sticky note on the fridge saying how much you love or miss them. Such gestures are easy and inexpensive ways that will make your partner love and appreciate you even more.
And these are just a few of an endless list of different, personal reasons why we love our partner.
And why we should never forget to tell them how we feel, even on an ordinary day.
