How To Be More Loving To Your Partner: 6 Sure Tips

Affection is something that many people seek out of a relationship, but it can also be very difficult for some. Whether it is too much or not enough, showing up and falling in love can cause friction even in the most enduring relationship. In this article, we will look at some of the ways you can show love to your partner as well as get it from them. For the most part, affection is to show someone you care through physical interactions, such as hugging, holding hands, and kissing. It can range from small gestures to big shows.

Affection is different in every relationship and we all have different expectations of what we want and what we are happy to offer. Even if you are a generally confident person, showing love can feel like a big step. This is totally normal, as every relationship is different. What you can be comfortable doing with close friends (hugging, for example) can feel really intimidating with your new partner.Your partner may want you to show them more love and you may not be completely happy with him. Tell yourself that this is okay and normal. Not everyone feels the same way about showing love, so you should not feel guilty if it is not something you need or particularly enjoy.


Communicate with your partner about why you are holding back or why you do not want to become as intimate with them this way. We will review some tips to help you find both levels of love you are comfortable with. Remind yourself that affection is about expressing love and care, it is something to be enjoyed and loved, not something that should cause much concern. You will both find a place with which you are content in terms of giving and receiving love, it will only take a short time.


1. Respect boundaries, both yours and theirs.

When you are testing new levels of love with a partner, whether it is a new relationship or you have been together for a while, it is important to be careful of boundaries. Anything that makes you or they feel uncomfortable should be treated with respect, which means not pushing each other or making things feel like a threat. As much as you may want your partner to show you more love, you can not make them feel like they should do 'or otherwise.' Affection is not a negotiation tool or a request you make from someone, it is an intimate expression of love and care.


The deepest levels of love come from truly knowing someone. This means understanding their past and being aware of any trauma or pain they have gone through with past partners or individuals. Try to remember that these things take time for some people and that you can not rush someone else’s healing. If your partner is holding back for these reasons, remind yourself that it is not personal and that your behavior is unlikely to change theirs without even making those adjustments. In the same way, you should not feel like you need to force yourself into a more loving relationship. If you have gone through something traumatic, you need to give yourself some time before you rush to show more love.


2. Do double for a while.

Plan days when you are more 'couple' - getting into this kind of humor helps you develop a more focused and intimate mindset. Plan fun things to do together that help you feel comfortable with each other as well as excited to be close to each other. Organizing date nights is something that often fades after we are in a relationship, as affection has been shown. If you and your partner make a conscious decision to get more involved with each other, love will continue. Make a commitment for one night of meeting every week or two, depending on your schedules. Make sure you both understand that this is something that needs to be taken seriously, if any of you need to cancel, it must be for a very good reason. A big part of being open to someone is trust, and that kind of commitment will help you both work on trusting each other more, no matter how long you’ve been together.


Time in the couple can be anything you like, as long as it is something you both enjoy. Some dating is about something your partner likes even if you do not enjoy it because you want to be careful. But these dates should be something you both enjoy doing, it is really important that you both feel comfortable with each other, as you are more likely to open up and your partner will be more willing to accept more love. Take the time to plan these types of dates. Don’t go straight for a simple option like dinner and a movie (unless that’s what you both really enjoy doing). By doing a date ritual, you will both have time to get excited and look forward to them. This means you will have a proper ‘event’ of sorts to walk towards and you will both start to anticipate and share more love with each other. We will go into the rituals and routines in more detail later


3. Jokes around.

Being more lively with each other will help you feel more comfortable with touching and being close. It also has to do with trust - if you can be open and stupid with someone, you trust them and the strength of your relationship. This means that you and your partner will feel more relaxed around each other, which will of course encourage more love from both of you. As we talk about taking things seriously and making a commitment, there is still time to let go and have fun. By letting yourself really relax with each other, the atmosphere will be relieved. The more comfortable and easy things are, the more likely you are to both want to reach out and grab them by the hand or jokingly hit them in the arm. Gentle elbows and bullying can really lift your spirits as well, making things feel flirty even if you have been together for years.


Engaging your partner in this way is a big boost to the ego for them as well - the more confident they feel through the 'rewards' of your attention, the more likely they are to naturally offer some love. It will also make you feel good, you are not really looking for their love, so it feels like a compliment rather than a response to your requests. Remind yourself of this. This will help you feel more confident the next time you want to show your partner a little more love and attention, and when you want him in return. Stay alive and it will start to become more of a habit. Being physically close to someone can help you adjust to their emotions and thoughts. Simple things like footwork under the dinner table can make a big difference. This kind of thing is pretty delicate, so it is perfect if your partner does not like public love shows or becomes shy or embarrassed.
