Let’s admit it. We all want to show affection to our partners more than what we are currently doing. In the book written
by Dr. Gary Chapman titled the 5 Love Languages, he explains that all of us have a love language that is unique to us. If
you want to make your partner feel loved, you must discover that language and “speak” that language in order for your
love to blossom.
Generally, those love languages fall into these 5 major categories
1. Physical Touch
2. Quality Time
3. Words of Affirmation
5. Acts of Service
If you want to know more about the love languages and what language you and your partner have, you can go ahead

knowing your partner’s love language is just a part of the entire equation, the how to part is what makes all the
difference. As they say, love is an action, not just an emotion. So, here’s a list of things you can do for your partner that
will surely help boost and take your relationship to a whole new level.
5 Ways to Make Your Partner Happy!
1. Schedule time together
While that seems to be anti-climactic, majority of us do not really have enough quality time to spend with our partners. We talk about being in the house, doing Facebook, watching TV and eating – but it is still different from true quality time. Give your partner the gift that no one can snatch away from them – the Gift of Time
2. Surprise your Partner
What kind of surprise? You be the judge. Try things with your partner you’ve never done before. Eat things you’ve never eaten together, travel to places both of you don’t know and do things that will make you both look like crazies! There’s nothing more romantic than experiencing a fresh perspective about yourself, your partner and your relationship.
3. Say Thank You and Say Sorry
These two words are the most needed words in any relationship, yet they doesn’t seem to be said very often. I’m sure there’s a lot of words to be said that will revolve around these words and if you want to take your love for your partner deeper – be open and be humble to say sorry for the things you have done, and say thank you for all the things you are grateful for.
4. Be Intimate
Being intimate does not always mean sex. If you feel like your partner is stressed out from work, or from the chores inside the home, you can make them feel at ease by offering intimacy to them. The reason why this is important is because stress build up can cause a lot of serious health risks. And one way of reducing stress is by making quality social interactions with one another. Scientifically, cuddling, massaging and other types of pleasure received by the body releases oxytocin – a feel good hormone that can alleviate stress from the body.
5. Be Generous
What most long-time partners forget is that there is still magic in gift giving. Even after you are married, your partner will still appreciate gifts that came from your pocket. Even if budget is a challenge, remember that money comes and goes but it is wiser to spend it on things that will matter in the long run. And here’s what we miss out – relationships are important and is worth investing in. So, don’t shy away from giving your partner some of the things they want every now and then.
The list goes on and on, but it does not end there. There are still a million different ways to make your partner feel
special. Every one of us have basic desires that we want to fulfill. We want to feel loved, feel needed, feel appreciated
and feel blessed. The more your partner feels these from you, the better your relationship will be. No need to wait for
those marked out dates, you can start making your partner feel special today!
