In this series “21 Ways To Say I Love You” I will share some common but effective methods to show love in your relationship.
The purpose of this list is to stimulate more loving interactions in your marriage and dating life. Deep interaction doesn’t always require profound and extra-ordinary effort. You can build bridges and great depth of love with simple and daily actions.
I will begin at the end and work to the top of the list.
21. Take a walk together
Number 21 on the list of “21 Ways To Say I Love You” could easily have been number one on this list. In the spring and early summer mornings a walk has multiple benefits. There are the physical benefits of walking such as relieving stress. There are also the emotional and relational bonds that are created or strengthen during this time together.
One major key to make sure you enjoy this time is not to talk about the problems and challenges in your relationship. Instead use this time to speak of the joys of life together.
20. Take a trip together just because
Take an impromptu trip to a location that is near or far. This will allow you to work together to quickly put the basic plan together and make up the rest as you go. This lack of planning will in some cases require the two of you to pull your heads together and make some creative adjusts with each other instead of against each other.
If your partner is a heavy planner type, this may run them up the wall. Ask them to trust the lack of process and just enjoy the moment. If this doesn’t work give them a portion of the trip to plan to the infinite detail they are accustom to.
19. Do the dishes together
I am aware that some families/couples don’t cook at home much. My wife and I are one of the couples who seldom cook at home. However, if you cook or eat take-out, there are things at home that will get dirty so just clean them together.
You will send one of two signals to the person who has traditionally been doing the cleanup is:
- Is there something wrong or what are you up to?
- Are you really starting to care about me?
Hopefully they will think you are starting to care for them and the status of the relationship.
