Words of Affirmation
“Love Story” was wrong, love DOES mean you say sorry, and other nice things. Affirming your true love is all about being thoughtful and genuine. It’s not only important that your partner hears “I love you,” but also why.
❥ Send love notes with unexpected phrasing (You are a tiger in a world of house cats!)
❥ Give your partner sincere compliments about specific things.
❥ Fill an antique jar or box with all the reasons you love your partner written on slips of paper.
According to Dr. Chapman, “This language is all about giving the other person your undivided attention.” Time is a strong communicator of love, especially in a world full of distractions.
❥ Put away all your devices and talk to your partner about their dreams for the evening – dream job, dream vacation, etc.
❥ Take a class together to learn something new. It can be anything from rock climbing to wine tasting.
❥ Plan a romantic getaway to a unique or memorable spot. You don’t have to break the bank, try being a tourist in your own town.
