💘5 Tips For A Perfect Valentine 💘
👄1. Know Your Partner’s Love Language.👄
According to the book 5 Love Languages By Gary Chapman, the five love languages are Words of Affirmation, Quality time, Physical Touch, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts. We give and receive love differently and so do our partners. Identify it and align accordingly. It'll change your life.
🙋2. Be Present 🙋♀️
That means EYE contact, not Eye to Phone contact. Ask questions. Be interested in the conversation. Notice the little things. Show your partner that you are present.
👂3. Listen More👂
Listening doesn't mean hearing words. It means seeking to understand. Also, try to listen to things that are not being said!
Expectation kills joy. Yet, we expect so much from the people we love. Maybe for one evening, you can suggest for your date to put down all expectations and just enjoy being in the presence of each other.
👩 5. For Those Without Dates.👨
When was the last time you brought your parents out for a date? Valentine doesn't have to be just about romantic love. Bring your parents out, take your kid out, have a girl's night. Just go out!
