Whether it’s through movies, television, books, or social media, we’ve all witnessed the cheesy hyper-romanticized ideal of what a relationship is supposed to entail, supposedly. While writing letters, sending flowers, and candle-lit homemade dinners are all great gestures to showcase your love for someone, at the same time being romantic doesn’t need to be so cliche.
Whether you’re caught up in the pure bliss of initial infatuation or have solidified a bond through years of trials and tribulations, sometimes some of us could use a bit of guidance when it comes to being more amorous in our relationships. This week the team at Luurve go over some practical ways to showcase your love and be more romantic with your partner.
Do You Remember The Times?
It’s all too easy for us to get caught up in the day to day monotony of being in a relationship and not outwardly appreciate your partner as much as you could or should. One of the simplest things you can do to rekindle the flame in your relationship is to take a long stroll down memory lane and reminisce over everything that made you two fall in love in the first place.
Remember when the two of you first met, remember when you first realized there was something special about this person, take yourself back to when the two of you shared your first kiss, even better go on a date where the two of you shared your first.
I Want To Hold Your Hand
Another straightforward yet oft overlooked piece of advice when it comes to being more romantic with your partner is to simply be more affectionate toward one another. Whether it’s something as basic as holding each others hands whenever you can get the chance, or something a little more grand like spontaneous public displays of affection, getting a little more intimate with your partner is always a surefire way to be more romantic.
All The Small Things
Surprises let them know you care. Whether it’s something as simple as a compliment or as grand as a surprise evening out on the town, gestures both big and small that showcase your affection are the cornerstone of any healthy relationship and are a great way to foster romance.
Boast about them to your friends, buy them their favorite snack while you’re out at the store, take an active interest in their interests and hobbies. These are all simple yet surefire ways to let your partner know you that you care about them.
This Is How I Feel
When was the last time you expressed to your partner exactly what and how much they mean to you? There are occasions when we get too caught up in our day to day lives that we may begin to slack on relationship essentials such as being open with each other. It’s important to remember no matter how hectic things become to never take the other for granted, and to occasionally take the time out to let that person know exactly how much they mean to you.
Whether it’s a heartfelt handwritten raw expression of your love for them, or something as simple as just saying “you mean everything to me”, letting your partner know how much you care for them is a great way to rekindle the flame in your relationship.
It’s important to remember that a relationships aren’t static and need to be nurtured in order to blossom, you need to constantly be putting conscious effort into showcasing your love for one another in practical ways to continue to solidify the bond you both established. While being romantic is a cornerstone of any healthy relationship, there are times where we may struggle in expressing ourselves and could use a little push.
There’s nothing wrong with this at face value, we all get caught up in ourselves and our own lives from time to time, that’s all apart of the fallibility of being human. What’s important is to be able to recognize when these moments occur so that you can actively take measures to correct the situation and to show your partner how much they truly mean to you.
