We all have pre conceived ideas of love and believe it can be bought with materialist things. However, many of us forget that this does not give us happiness and fulfil our life with love. Ever heard of the saying ‘It is the simple things in life that count’? Everyone need to understand the importance of this saying and how true this is in a relationship. The simple things that are given to you by your partner is an indication that your love for one another is true and not based on materialism.
Expensive purchases for your loved one will not define true love. It does not take a lot of effort, a lot of planning or a lot of money to show how much you love someone. It is the little things that ignite the spark and make love and romance alive.
Being affectionate is one of the greatest acts that will show someone how much you love them. A hug for no reason symbolises your love and shows someone that they are very special to you. However, this does not mean you must go overboard with the public displays of affection. If you want to make your love public, holding hands is a simple but beautiful act that shows your love to another.
Leaving ‘I Love You’ notes for your partner is another great and simple gesture. Leaving these notes will make your partner smile out of the blue. Place them with your partner's lunch, in their diary or at the door so they see it just before they leave the house for the day. It's a great way to start the day on a positive.
Complimenting your partner on a regular basis is always a nice way to make your partner feel special. When you notice their appearance it can make one feel good about them self and also feel good about the relationship. Besides complimenting your partner on their appearance, also make the compliments deep and meaningful, complimenting them on their personality and how they make you happy.
Always remember that a simple gesture is worth more than any gift. Show your love with your affection, and this will truly show the love you have for one another. Going that extra mile with those simple things will mean more than any gift you can give.
