So you love someone. But that doesn’t mean you need to make any grand gestures. Here are some little things you can do that speak of your love.
Love is easy. What’s actually tough is loving.
Believe me you, she is not that hard to love. All that matters is how much effort you put in to make her feel loved and appreciated. Effort you put that doesn’t need any grand strategies.
I believe just like other important things in your life you need to take some time out for the woman in your life. Doing little things out of love, being aware of her needs and feelings, does the trick.
You don’t need to take her out on lavish grand date nights but try having those evening walks or after-dinner walks regularly with her, where you ask her about her day and tell about yours. Hand in hand and heart to heart is the recipe for magic.
You don’t need to buy those expensive gifts and jewellery all the time, but bring her a rose on one of those regular days. Make her feel special on just ordinary days too.
You both might be too busy and occupied to keep calling each other like those good old college days. That’s ok. Just call her once for 2 minutes and tell her, “I can’t wait to see you again, I really miss you.”
You need not be the Best Husband or Best Boyfriend under the sun. I know that’s one herculean task! Just try to be her best friend and everything will follow.
The moon looks best in the sky as it is. You don’t have to bring it down for her. If you missed planning for a special night, try this. Spend a night under the starry violet sky and cuddle in each other’s arms; I think that’s all she wants.
It’s ok If PDA’s are not your thing and you can’t write those romantic statuses on social media, but you can still write letters to her. Love letter charm is still a thing.
Not every time do we have time or money for those exotic vacations; it happens. Plan a romantic long drive with her just like in the journey of life you both feel fortunate to sit beside each other. As they say, live a life you don’t need a vacation from.
No doubt, you are her shield against the craziest storms and you have to be at your best to fulfil all responsibilities and duties. I encourage you to support her like this forever but do you still find her sad at times? Drop your guard, be easy on yourself and enjoy those little moments with her. Get out of your living room, pull her out too and dance in the rain.
I know it sounds weird, but ya! Sometimes we are left with no energy for weekend getaways, and all we want to do is stay back home and relax. And also there are some pending household tasks that can only be done on weekends and hence there’s no time for getaways. You can still make your weekends special. Do stuff together, dancing and singing together, do relaxed movie marathons. Stay together and enjoy in each other’s company.
Try cooking for her. I agree not all men might be good with this (insert eyeroll) but the least you can do is turn off your screens, get up from that couch, and help her with cooking or someday give her a day off from cooking. Order the food. Dim the light, light up the candles and put the music on. You don’t need those fancy restaurants for romantic dinners. Trust me …
