1. Love Yourself
This is usually the hardest part about loving your partner! If we don’t feel good about us, then we are probably not feeling good about anything. You need to invest in yourself and make sure that you are loving who YOU are. Take time to appreciate all you do in your relationship and to reflect on how awesome it is to be YOU! Remind yourself daily that you are amazing and incredible and that anyone who is with you is one lucky person!
2.Talk to each other daily.
One of the many ways to love your partner is to talk to each other daily. This is a serious problem in relationships. We are too busy with social media, with our kids, watching Netflix, or with friends. Yes, we may spend time together but are you really communicating every day? Ask them how their day went and really listen. Make eye contact or hold hands while you chat. Think about when you were dating and you wanted to know everything about them! Make a point to communicate often.
3. Respect their space and time.
Something I learned later in my marriage is that it’s okay to do things away from your partner. I missed out on a lot of me time because I felt guilty for leaving my hubby to fix his own dinner. You cannot feel guilty for needing some space! Space is good and it helps you feel rejuvenated. Not only do you need time for you, your partner needs time for themselves. So send them out with their friends while you spend time treating yourself. Besides, you’ll miss each other during your time away!
Send them a flirty text while they are at work or out with their friends. Play hard to get! It’s okay to be silly and fun still!
