I’d like to share a few relationship hints, comments or possibly secrets with you today. Most are fairly common but just in case you’ve forgotten I’ll remind you. All relationships have some type of value, if only to show what not to do or what you don’t want.
First off, make sure your significant other understands you are his priority and not an afterthought or someone to scratch an itch. The word “significant” should mean something to both of you.
Spoil your mate (man, woman, spouse, significant other) not your kids. As much as we love our children, putting them in front of your chosen sends mixed messages. Remember every time your young child sees you, they are learning something. Imagine your child(ren) seeing happy, loving parents who like each other. It sends a message of safety and security that words alone can’t convey. It also strengthens the family, as well as teaches children what a loving relationship looks like.
There’s something inherently satisfying when your thoughts linger on what new or better thing you can do for your mate, knowing it’ll make him/her happy. Seeing a smile of appreciation when you surprise them by doing something thoughtful and unexpected keeps the relationship exciting.
Spoiling him/her doesn’t need to cost anything other than your time and/or imagination. Truly the sky’s the limit.
