As Feb. 14 approaches, the pressure for your partner to plan the perfect date night increases. Give our simple, yet helpful, tips to your significant other to help ease the stress of organizing a romantic evening and provide some simple ways to keep the sparkle in your relationship alive year-round.
- Chivalry is definitely not dead.
A thoughtful romantic gesture such as opening the door still goes a long way. Such simple but kind gestures show that you care enough to go the extra mile.
- Make an effort.
Putting effort into the relationship is a great way to express your love and gratitude to your partner. Surprise her with a homemade dinner, or write her a heartfelt note. Sweet surprises are a fun way to remind your significant other of his or her importance, and inspire a smile.
- Old-fashioned dates are still in style.
In an age in which people are immersed in technology, face-to-face interactions are more appreciated than ever, especially in a relationship. Keep the romance alive by taking your partner on dates, even if it’s just running down the street for coffee and scones. The important thing is being together – not texting.
This key rule goes for any relationship or friendship: Be an active listener. When your partner is talking about something that concerns or inspires him or her, actively respond and relate to what is being said. Everyone appreciates a person who takes the time to listen, and it always leads to a deeper connection in the end.
