You don’t always have to engage in huge, romantic gestures to get closer to your lover, although, those are nice too. But sometimes the smallest things can bring you closer together. Here are the best ways to get closer as a couple:
The foundation of any healthy relationship is honesty and communication. Tell your partner things – what’s bothering you or how you’re feeling. Be honest with yourselves and each other.
Many people think intimacy is all about sex. It is part of it but it’s not everything. Intimacy comes in many shapes and sizes, both physical and emotional. Talk about your day. Hold hands and a perk on the cheek can go a long way.
Making your partner feel loved and appreciated brings you closer. Say thank you for the little things. Appreciate the small stuff. He doesn’t need to surprise you with a trip to London or Dubai for you to be grateful.
Create time for each other
Drop down whatever you are doing for several minutes and ask if they’re ok. Talk about your relationships and show that you care by encouraging them especially when they are down or morose.
Share housework and hobby
If you live together, this is easy! Very few people like getting groceries or doing the laundry. Share the work and get it done every time. Same thing with hobbies.
Do not hide things
It’s easy to try and ignore things. If you’ve had a bad day, or if you’re a secretive person, it’s easy to keep things to yourself. If you want to be closer as a couple, you need open up to your partner. If something is bothering you, tell him! If you’re mad at him, maybe he can work on it!
