Creating magical moments in your relationship is every couple’s goal, but doing it is not always as straightforward as it seems. Every relationship is unique, and different partners mean that there are many ways for them to interpret romance – the key is finding the right one that both parties can appreciate and enjoy.
This may mean that you’ll have to take the lead, but it’s more than enough to nudge your partner in the right direction and get them involved in the romance-making. To that end, here are some tips on how to keep the flames going with your partner:
Tip #1: Understand and Speak the Same Language
Each person expresses their love differently depending on their personality type. It’s crucial to understand and decode these languages to take the guesswork out of doing actions that meet your partner’s needs, be it through acts of service like giving the time to cook for your partner or quality time spending it at one of Phuket’s throngs of romantic restaurants.
Others may find it more exciting to sift through the local market in Patong and indulge in staple street foods. Either way, learning the language that best speaks to your partner is sure to spark romance in the air and light them up!
Tip #2: Give Importance to the Little Things
Big gestures are jaw-dropping and unforgettable on occasions, but it’s the little gestures that make up the most of your time together and build a healthy relationship. This includes helping around with chores, cooking with them, or even just saying you appreciate them on a daily basis. Striving for happiness and love every day ensures a long-lasting and happy relationship, one that brings out the best in both of you in the long run.
Tip #3: Skip the Guesswork and Strive for an Open Communication
It’s not always easy to talk about what you feel as many people tend to feel vulnerable and uncomfortable at the thought of expressing their opinions. However, excellent communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, which is why it is essential to keep your lines open to encourage full understanding and mitigate needless arguments.
Communication also builds trust, promotes understanding, and ensures that you and your partner have the same level of respect for each other. When a problem arises, being tight-lipped about the issue will only hurt your partner and the relationship. Meanwhile, taking the courage and time to make them see things from your point of view creates a love that is clear, honest, and mature.
Tip #4: Learn How to Listen Actively and Sincerely
It takes a village to raise a healthy kind of love, and in that regard, one of the simple yet highly effective ways to do so is to learn how to listen. Unfortunately, it can be a tough skill to master as many people tend to listen with the intent to reply, but to have an enriched working relationship, you and your partner must know how to listen with the intent to understand.
This means that you have to develop the ability to listen with the intent to learn from them and let go of thinking ahead to formulate a prompt response. One way to do it is to maintain your focus on your partner talking – either through eye contact or encouraging nods where it is appropriate. Let them have some time to pause and resist the urge to fill the silence with your opinions to let them fully express their thoughts first.
