Often in relationships people get so caught up with the huge gestures they make, that they forget it’s the little things that really count.
The guy goes on about putting food on the table, buying a bouquet of flowers last Valentines, taking her to the cinema a few weeks ago and God forbid he would let her forget the trip to the mother in law not so long ago.
Women are no different. “I cooked your favourite meal the other day, picked up your dirty laundry after you… and remember that time I let all your friends come over and watch the footie with you?”
Sometimes it feels like they are keeping score of who does the most for each other so they can draw on that credit as soon as they can. Actually, here is what really makes a difference:
Although all of the above is important, it is often the little things we think are insignificant that our partner notices the most. The unexpected compliment, the sincere thank you for that favour that doesn’t even seem huge, noticing she went to the hairdresser and tell her how beautiful she looks, telling him you admire his courage and leadership skills, and the list goes on.
We can usually do the big surprises once in a while, but the little things that count can be done every single day.
Why not decide to do various little things for your partner every single day? Make an effort to surprise the person you love with something that perhaps won’t cost you much, but will pay dividends in your relationship on the long run.
Did you send your partner a text today to say how important he/she is? Do it now! You will reap the benefits later.
