Sometimes, simply saying "I love you" is not enough.
It doesn't always take a grandiose declaration of love to get your message across. Much of the time, it's those little somethings and sweet nothings that help you stay connected for the long haul. Need ideas? The 15 suggestions below are just a few examples of everyday actions that mean the world to someone you're in love with. Pick two or three to start practicing today!.
1. Help whittle down your significant other's to-do list.
Pick up her dry cleaning, stock his fridge with a week's worth of groceries, clean her bathroom, frame the poster that’s been sitting in the corner of his living room since you met. After all, it's tough to be romantic with all those tasks hanging over your head.
2. Slip a sweet note into his gym bag.
What better workout motivation is there than a reminder of how much you care?
3. Make her feel at home.
If you and your significant other live apart, make an effort to stock your place with specific items — food, shampoo, etc. — that he or she likes. It makes your place feel more like home.
4. Send your sweetheart a postcard or love letter in the mail.
Emails are easy come, easy go. Snail mail packs a punch — especially when it's not a bill.
5. Make breakfast for your girlfriend.
It doesn't have to be in bed. It doesn't even have to be anything fancy. Heart-shaped pancakes are easy (hint: pour the batter into a heart-shaped cookie cutter).
6. Recreate your first date.
Go to the same place, order the same drinks, and so on. Reminisce about your first impressions of your partner and some of the best, most exciting things that have happened in your relationship since then.
