When it comes to loving our partners, we want to love them in the best possible ways, right? We want them to feel loved and cared for on a deeper level, but are we doing the things we need to do in order to achieve that?

There are tons of small things we can do that can and will make a huge difference in the lives of our partners and also the quality of our relationships. You might fight sometimes and argue, but at the end of the day if you’re doing the following things and really trying to work together to become stronger you’re going to be just fine. Love is not as complicated as some people make it out to be.

9 Things That You Should Do To Love Your Partner ‘Better’:

1. Don’t put intimacy on the back burner.

Don’t let yourself get caught up in life to the point where you forget how important it is to be intimate with the person you love. This doesn’t always have to be sexual but is just being together on that deeper level, it is a way for the two of you to reconnect at the end of the day. This is far more important than most realize, the more you put it off, the further away you may grow from one another.

2. Listen to the things they have to say.

Sure, you might get tired of listening to your partner sometimes, but I assure you, you’d rather hear them out than not, even if you don’t realize it right now. Listening to their concerns and the things they have to say is part of being their partner. If they are always hearing you out, and you’re not taking the time to do the same, they will become distant. Loving them properly means being there to listen to the things they consider to be important or worth mentioning.

3. Respect their space and ‘alone time.’

We all need alone time, and your partner is no exception to this. Give him or her space and do your own thing sometimes. If you want to love your partner properly, letting his or her spend the time that he or she needs to wind down and relax is a given.

4. Experience new things together.

When we want to cultivate the proper atmosphere in our relationship, we need to experience things together. The more you do together, the more you will grow together. While it is easy to fall into a routine, mixing things up will really bring forth something special.

5. Know when to apologize.

We all have to apologize sometimes, knowing when to do-so is important. This will make your partner feel better and keep you out of the dog house. Sure, it might be a bit inconvenient sometimes, but it is necessary.

6. Pick and choose your battles.

Don’t make everything into a fight. Pick and choose which ones are worth it. If after you sit down and think things through you decide it wasn’t worth getting upset over in the first place, don’t pursue it. This will enrich your relationship big time.

7. Always be honest with them about your feelings.

Don’t lie to your partner about how you feel. Be open and honest about your emotions. Honesty is one of the most important parts of a relationship.

8. Treat them with kindness.

Be kind to your partner within reason. Sure sometimes you might have to be a bit rude to get your point across but overall kindness builds kindness. You cannot be a grouch and expect your partner to remain happy.

9. Show them your appreciation.

Be appreciative of your partner. He or she does a lot for you, whether you want to see it or not. A simple thank you can go a long way.
