They say that romance is the key to any good relationship, but so many of us are clueless about how it works! Most people think of doing something romantic for their partner, but can’t pinpoint exactly what to do. These are 10 ways to show your partner that you care and that you know that romance counts.
1. Morning Surprises
Try to make your morning time special by making coffee for your partner while they are still in bed, or even make them breakfast in bed if you have time! This gesture will make your partner feel important and cherished.
2. Show Affection At Every Opportunity
When you come home at the end of the work-day, make sure that you give your loved one a long hug and kiss. This will make you both feel more deeply connected to each other throughout the evening and into the coming days. It is also good to touch your partner affectionately throughout the day and not only when you want to be romantic to show that you always care about them.
3. Make Time During the Week
Set aside special time for the two of you, even during the week. Plan a romantic outing or dinner for your partner after work, get a room at a hotel, or make sure the kids are out of the house for the night. Only the anticipation of being together will add a romantic spark to your love life.
4. Give Them Your Full Attention
Make sure to try and give your partner 100 percent of your attention when they want to talk to you about something. Peel your eyes away from the T.V. or put down what you are reading and face your partner and say “What would you like to talk about?” This will make your partner feel important and show that you are ready and willing to listen to what they have to say.
Make the effort to tell your partner that they look beautiful, handsome, sexy or great. Everyone needs a bit of encouragement sometimes, and the person that your partner most wants to hear it from is you.
6. Keep Looking Forward
Before you leave for work in the morning, tell your partner that you are looking forward to seeing them when you return. Don’t leave the house without acknowledging your partner and telling them “I love you”, no matter the circumstances.
7. Little Gifts to Cheer Them Up
Next time you go out shopping, look for little ‘surprise gifts’ for your partner that you know he or she would like. Next time they are feeling down, give them one of the gifts and see how they perk up. This act of kindness will uplift you and your partner with love, and they will remember it fondly for a long time to come.
8. Offer to Help Them Out
If your partner is having a tough day, offer to make them dinner or take them out for a drink. If they usually do the cooking they will welcome the change and thank you for your effort to help them unwind.
9. Be spontaneous!
Rent a convertible and take your partner for a surprise ride around town, or drive to the beach. Such a romantic and simple gesture will show your partner that you are thinking of them and their happiness. Of course, you can be as extravagant as your want, but know that your partner will appreciate anything you do for them.
10. Step It Up
If you want to be really romantic, fill the house with candles and rose petals and surprise your partner when they come home. Tell them to cancel any plans for the night because you two will be in for the night.
Lastly, don’t forget, romance leads to a fulfilling love life when you really mean it!
