Valentine’s 2021 is here! A time to spread love and be loved. That is why I’m glad you’re reading this post on ways you should love your partner this Valentine.
If you’re a lovey dovey person like me and you’re excited about Valentine’s, please don’t let any killjoy kill your excitement by saying things like “there’s nothing special about Val’s” and “Everyday is a day to spread love”.
Yes, love should be celebrated every day but same with life. Why don’t we stop celebrating birthdays just because we celebrate life everyday?
Be excited about Valentine’s and go all out to celebrate it if it’s within your means.
Life is too short to be holding back.
If you’re in a relationship or married, you should be looking forward to stepping up your game in the love department and topping you partner’s love tank by looking into new ways you should love your partner this Valentine.
And if you’re single, you are not left out. Self love is the best kind of love after God’s Love. Read this blog post to get ideas on how to spend your Valentines as a single person.
Single, taken, or married, you shouldn’t spend Vals sulking or being unhappy. Give love and receive love.
Below are 5 ways you should love your partner this Valentine’s and they’re coined from the 5 love languages.
Pay attention to your partner’s love language(s).
To be honest, you should do this all the time in your relationship.
However, there are times when due to circumstances, you may be unable to speak your partner’s love language AKA love them the way they like to be loved. This Val is a great time to fix that and make up for time past.
1. Get thoughtful presents
Everyone loves presents. Even if I had everything I needed and wanted, I would still appreciate gifts. Many times, it’s not really about the material (sometimes it is lol), it’s usually about the thought behind it, and the priceless special feeling your partner feels when they receive presents from you.
So, go online and search for Valentine’s 2021 gift ideas.
Don’t close your eyes to all the vendors marketing Val’s gifts to you. If you can afford it, get it for your partner. Choose a package that allows you select the content of the Val presents and select things you know your partner would appreciate.
If prior to now, your finances haven’t allowed you do much of giving gifts, this is the time to squeeze something out of your savings and get your partner some presents.
2. Give them quality time!
If your partner’s love language is quality time and you’re always very busy, create time to spend with them this Val. Surprise them.
Especially if it is a marriage relationship. Postpone anything that may want to come up and take your time on Valentine’s day.
Better still, if it’s really important, carry your partner along.
3. Hold your partner
If your partner’s love language is physical touch, be more generous with your hands this season through hugs, and holding of hands (but go easy on this one if y’all aren’t married yet).
4. Tell your partner how much they mean to you.
Word of affirmation is powerful. Sometimes, all people need is reassurance.
Be vocal about how much you love them and how much they mean to you. Send thoughtful texts, customize cards with your original thoughts, communicate to your partner that they’re important to you.
5. Do something random but thoughtful.
Acts of service really get to some people. This is the season to practice that more. It could something as little as taking out the trash, doing the dishes, working on a project on behalf of your partner, or ticking some things off their to-do list for them.
These things may seem small but they usually mean a whole lot to the recipients.
Look into these 5 actions and let them inspire you on new ways to love your partner this Valentine’s.
Want to go steps further, do all of the above! Lol. Love is never too much
