How Important Are The Little Things In A Relationship?

Some things will never get old. Why do you think Luther Vendros “Buy Me a Rose” song still hit the nerve after all these decades? I’m not talking about grandiose gestures here but the little things that makes your partner’s heart to skip the beat.

Bro, love isn’t about a one-man show? It’s all about serving one another. Performing small gestures is super beneficial in a relationship because they convey so much. Don’t let the streets to mislead you, the small things can mean everything in a relationship.

It’s important to take time and understand your partner. Like, what makes her smile or drives her mad.

Below we attempted to breakdown Dr Gary Chapman’s 5 love languages:

Words of Affirmation

Most people prefer hearing the words “I love you” or “I appreciate your presence in my life” to feel special. It could be a note next to their lunchbox in the morning, a random text during the day or a checkup call before dozing off.

Acts of Service

For some people it’s about the things you do for them that keeps the fire burning. Bro, it shouldn’t be anything BIG! It could be breakfast in bed, doing the laundry or taking out the dustbin. Imagine you wake up everyday with one mission to serve one another.

Receiving Gifts

Who doesn’t like a surprise gift once in a while? It’s not about the price or size of the gift. Dude, a bunch of flowers really work. People who prefer being spoiled want partners that are creative. No need to get yourself broke trying to impress her.

Quality Time

Turning up with your partner is super fun but nothing can be compared to spending quiet time together. The undivided attention will score you golden points. For some people ‘quality time’ is more important than receiving gifts. Take time to understand your partner’s needs.

Physical Touch 

Bro, do you understand the power of touch? A simple hug or a forehead kiss could brighten your partner’s day. The physical touch is another way of saying ‘I’m here, I’m with you and see you”.

Getting to understand your love language and your partner’s will make the little things matter.
