Dating is a germane part of being in a romantic relationship, and this should not stop when the partners get married. Which is spending time together, learning more about each other, and connecting emotionally, physically, financially. They are all necessary for maturing as a couple.
In case you don’t know that meaningful dates/ relationships require intentionality and creativity. What is meaningful for you may not be as meaningful for your partner.
Therefore, I challenge you to consider incorporating your partner’s primary love language. This will make the relationship meaningful to your partner, and more memorable for you both.
If you need some relationship inspiration this holiday season and you don’t know what to do in your relationship or you’ve been wondering what to love language your partner loves.
First thing you need to do is discover his or her love language. If you don’t know your partner’s love language, send this quiz and ask him or her to share the results with you. Then use this information to create a date that incorporates that particular way of expressing love. Very importantly make sure it comes from both partners
So, with five fun and creative date ideas so you and your loved one can spend more time together and less time figuring out what to do. As a bonus, each date incorporates ways to express the five love languages.
WORDS OF AFFIRMATION:
What better way to give thanks than by saying, “Thank you for being you!” This may seem simple, but how often do we take for granted those nearest to us? Your partner might love Word of Affirmation, so you should note it for better communication.
ACTS OF SERVICE:
If you have more money than time this holiday season, hire someone to do the acts of service you know your spouse would appreciate most, such as a deep cleaning of your home before the festivities begin. This is a very lovely thing to do and you shouldn’t forget it all.
What if your partner is the type that like gifts? All you need to do is to Set out personalized “tip” jars for each child in attendance this Thanksgiving. Encourage guests to write “tips for a good life” on slips of paper and drop them in each jar (with a little money if they wish). Then present each child their personalized jar as the evening comes to a close. For ladies it can be Flowers, shoes, bags, Perfumes etc. and for men it can be Perfumes, clothes, etc.
Sometimes it not just about the gifts you but to other people, they want others things and some of it are quality time. Don’t just buy presents this holiday season, be intentional about being present. Limit your time on games and mobile devices, turn off the T.V. after the game ends, and simply enjoy life and conversation with those you love.
Take a break in the midst of your Thanksgiving preparations. Before your guests arrive, put some music on and slow dance with your spouse in the kitchen.
