Ever wonder why your partner has become slightly distant? He or she isn’t as attentive as they used to be? Communication has become almost obsolete between you two? Well here’s why. It’s because the simple “I love you’s” just aren’t enough. Yes, saying “I love you” is reassuring and all, but there comes a time to ask yourself, are you really doing enough to show that person you really do love them? Over the next ten days, I’ll be posting about ways to really make those “I love yous” really count. I’ll be counting backwards, so tune in every day to keep up.
10. The See You Later: When it comes to the “see you later,” simply saying “I love you” just isn’t enough. The reason I say that is, everyone walks out of their house with the intention of returning back to it. But let’s face it, we all know that someone else can have another intention that day and you may not make it back to your house ever again. If you truly love your partner, kiss them before they leave. Hug them before they leave. Show some affection towards them before they leave. No matter what the affection is, make sure you show him or her that you really do love them. Another important thing to remember is to never say goodbye. Always say see you later. This reassures the person you love that you’ll be there when they return and they can look forward to your presence upon their return. Saying goodbye is so final. To me, saying goodbye means you have no intentions on seeing that person ever again. For the person you love, this isn’t the case, so don’t make your parting from each other so final. Even in conversation, never say bye. Say something like, talk to you later, or see you soon. In any event, just make sure the affection really shows the love you have for your partner.
