Ways to Show Your Partner How Much You Love Them

It’s been such a tough time for so many people. While it’s important to let your partner know how much you appreciate them throughout the year, Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse to show them how much they mean to you. You can go that extra mile. Not necessarily with gifts and cards, but with your time and actions.

Love Languages

Are you familiar with the five love languages? They are words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch. They can help you and your partner understand one another better. You need to be aware of what’s most important to you – and your partner – in a relationship. For instance, maybe your partner would love Valentine’s Day chocolate because it shows you know they have a sweet tooth. Or they should know how much you cherish quality time.

Truly Listen

Generally speaking, each person will enjoy all five languages but have a preference for one. A huge part of gaining this understanding with your partner is listening to them. Truly being present in the conversation. Remember, communication is not just about saying what you want but also taking the time to hear what your partner has to say. This Valentine’s Day, why not switch off your gadgets and just be in each other’s company? It’s a seemingly small gesture but can have a big impact.

Thoughtful Gestures

You want to use this time to show your partner how well you know them. There are so many ways you can do this. Obviously, these gestures will depend on what’s important to your loved one. They don’t have to be over the top, there are lots of small acts that can make your partner feel loved. Ask yourself what they would appreciate the most.

Why Them

There will be lots of reasons why you have decided to be with this person out of everyone else. Use this Valentine’s Day to explain what you love about them. Yes, it’s a bit cheesy but it’s what the day is all about. Whether it’s simply telling them in a card, or creating photos of your favourite moments. Let them know all the reasons why you love them.
