When you and your partner are just dating, it’s normal to become an emotional freak carried away with emotions. As time passes by and you have been together for a long time. There are probably many things that you can do to get your relationship on the next level. One of them and the most important one is affection towards your partner.
Every relationship seeks affection, romance, and appreciation. It’s inevitable. The worst thing that can happen to you is falling into a routine. We all wish that our partners still takes us out on dates. And surprise us with some gifts or simply tell us how much they love us.
We tend to think that once we’re in a relationship — especially a long-term one — we don’t need to show how much we care about that person because he or she should already know that. This is the first red flag you should avoid when in a relationship especially if your feelings were intense at the beginning.
Know how to express your concerns
When we’re trying to tell our partner that we simply need more love and affection we often stay numb. And you simply don’t want to be numb anymore because you care. If you’ve prolonged this conversation too long you won’t want your partner to feel attacked or if they are doing something wrong. Be polite and honest. Just say the words: “Could you love me even more if you love me at all?”
Be explicit about what kind of affection you want
People show love in different ways- through quality time, positive words, thoughtful gifts, physical touch, or acts of service. By recognizing your language of affection you will help your partner decide on a way he is going to show his affection. Traveling around countries can be very different from a simple touch and kiss. So, don’t mix your partner’s priorities.
Reviewing your own emotions
If you feel you need more attentiveness in your relationship, then take charge of your emotions first and explain them to your partner. By being positive and self-assured about what you want will turn your partner on by clearly defining what you want.
If it happens that your soul-mate isn’t the most affectionate creature on Earth, give them some time to accept your ideas on this subject. It may be hard for you to understand why they are not as affectionate and romantic as you would like them to be. When I’ve said sometime I don’t mean all the time in the world. Why? Because it can drain you in the end. Sometimes you must accept that fact or just walk away. Personally, I found it very difficult to share my time with people, not to mention dates, who have an incurable emotional void. That’s why showing and receiving affection can cause conflict in even the most perfect of relationships. If hugging, holding hands, and kissing is no mere interesting to your partner you should know that it’s the end.
