Sometimes it's not the big over-the-top gestures that your partner does for you that matter the most. Brit.Co agrees with me when I say that it's the little things that show your partner just how much they mean to you.

  • Affirm your partner's work and let them know just how proud you are of them. Whether they got recognition at work or they completed a goal that they set for themselves at home. Let them know that you see their hard work and you are happy for them.
  • Put down your phone when you're at home and have a conversation over dinner instead of watching the latest sitcom episode or rerun of your favorite show. Reconnect with your significant other for those couple of minutes and ask them how their day was.
  • Steal a chore from their list and get that done for them. Whether it's their turn to do the dishes or fold the laundry, surprise them by getting it done for them... especially if it's a chore that you both hate doing.

The little things in a relationship tend to mean the most. My fiancé doesn't need to parade his love for me on social media for me to know how he feels. It's when he mows the lawn or stays up to fold the towels, the smaller unspoken gestures, that I really know just how he feels about me.
