When it comes to our partners, we are so concerned with grand gestures that we often forget the importance of the little things – moments that carry far more weight, and become lifetime memories. Here’s a reminder…
1. Checking Up On You
Calling to see if you reached home safe after a long night, making sure you are feeling okay after a long and hard day, and just asking you to take care of yourself. These aren’t small gestures; don’t confuse them with small talk.
2. Laughing Together
Don’t underestimate the power of laughing at the same things, either a movie or a discussion. A couple who laughs together, always stay together – happily.
3. Sharing things
Stories from the past, incidents that affected him/her as a person, passions – sharing such moments is an intimate gesture. Sharing something personal, be it a feeling about a line in a book or deeper ones, should be given its due worth.
4. Pulling Your Leg
If he/she teases you gently from time to time, it’s just to see your expected ‘angry’ or ‘cute’ expression, and that’s a magic moment no matter how mundane it seems at times.
5. Listening To You
They actually listen to you and remember what you say, even though you may think otherwise. They don’t even have to make an effort to do this because it’s subconsciously engraved in their minds.
