There’s no doubt that the beginning of every relationship is exciting. There’s the spark, the banter, the butterflies, and the excitement still centered around dates and it’s easy to tell them how you feel. However, as we continue to build our relationships, you may see yourself falling into a routine with your significant other. While it's a very good thing to be you’re most comfortable with your partner, sometimes we may get too comfortable/complacent and forget to tell our partners all the things we love about them.
Telling your partner you are thinking of them is important in a healthy relationship. Your comfortability in assuming they know may not be as obvious to your partner, meaning you must make an effort in telling them. Even telling them the smallest of things can make your partner feels special. Here are a few ways to express yourself, but first, the basics.
The Importance of Telling Your Partner How You Feel
Communication is one of the most essential aspects of any relationship, especially a romantic one. And it means much more than just the idle chat you have to pass time. Making a conscious effort to dive under the surface of your partner is what will build a strong, long-last relationship. Getting to know how they think, what they like, and how to treat them the way they want is crucial. Never underestimate the power of words. Something you think may be too simple could actually make their day. You never know! So it's important to tell them you are thinking of them often to keep your relationship strong and thriving.
Ways to Let Your Partner Know You Are Thinking of Them
Sharing heartfelt truths will make your partner feel amazing and create a long-lasting bond. Here are a few ways to express how much your partner means to you every day.
Text and Tell Them You Are Thinking of Them
Sometimes the bluntest choice is the best one! Text your significant other during the days you aren’t with them and let them know you’re thinking of them, or that you miss them. Just a message saying “Hey, been thinking about you today!” will go a long way. Letting them know they’re on your mind says it all.
Do Them a Favor
Love languages are important, and acts of service can be a big thing for some. Pick them up some coffee on the way home from work or cook them dinner and bring it to them. Little acts of service can show your partner you have been thinking of them and that you care.
Ask About Something They’re Passionate About
Asking them about the things they love is a great way to show them you are thinking of them. Not only does it show your significant other is on your mind, but it also shows that you are truly listening to what they are saying to you.
Elevate Your Relationship
Commit to using the power of words or the little things to uplift your partner and build a strong foundation. Not only should you let your partner know you are thinking of them, but also let them know they are being heard and understood within the relationship. This can create a long-lasting bond.
