Once you’ve spent enough time being with someone you sometimes things aren’t as they used to be when the relationship first started. If you feel like you need to revive the love in your relationship or if you simply need something to keep the love overflowing, then you came to the right place.
I’ve been with my boyfriend for over 5 years and both him and I have done some simple gestures that has kept the love overflowing each day. It’s truly something simple, now enough chit-chat and let’s get started.
1. Surprise Lunch Picnic
I always loved it when my boyfriend would surprise me. On my free days he would suddenly just tell me to wait in the car and I saw him carrying a basket full of treats and goodies to enjoy while he was getting in the car. After a couple of minutes we arrived to the park and on a beautiful sunny day we had a nice lunch picnic. I thought it was the cutest thing he has ever done and since then he would do it from time to time.
2. Make a Favorite Meal at Home
Nothing says love like a nice homemade meal. Whether you know how to cook or not it’s always a nice gesture to do to your partner. I honestly don’t know how to cook very well however, I wanted to cook something yummy for my boyfriend. Since he loves cheesecakes I decided to try and bake one. Despite it being my first attempt, it actually went well! Besides, practice makes you perfect!
3. Show Up With Little Treats
It can be either a nice sweet treat or a little snack your partner enjoys. This is one of the many gestures that are very effective. My parents have been married for almost 30 years and my father would never forget to occasionally bring my mother a nice treat after work. She would love it so much!
4. Make an Investment Together
“Whether you adopt a dog, plant a tree, or just build some Ikea furniture that you can call “ours,” making an investment in something together will give you a tangible reminder of your commitment to each other”.
This is an awesome tip that my boyfriend and I decided to do. We adopted a beautiful golden retriever and she has been the joy of our lives! We go to the park more often to spend some time together along with our beautiful dog.
5. Pay Them a Genuine Spontaneous Compliment
Throwing a spontaneous compliment to your spouse is a great way to let them know that they mean a lot to you and that you’re a special person. Even the most simple compliment is very thoughtful!
