It’s so easy to be thoughtful: Simple ideas.
As easy as it is to get stuck in a routine with your lady, it’s just as simple to break that pattern and surprise her with something new. You’re girl isn’t expecting a new car every year and she doesn’t need a surprise trip to the Bahamas to stay with you, all she needs is a simple sign you care, especially when you’re both busy with your own lives. All it takes to make your girlfriend or wife happy is a little thought.
Leave a note
The easiest and sometimes most heartfelt way to show your sweetie that you care is to leave her a note telling her. You don’t have to be a poet, just leave a post-it on the fridge saying “I love you” and it’s enough. Hide a slip of paper in her coat pocket before she goes out, or hide a note between the pages of the book she reads before bed. One simple sentence every now and then will really impress your girl, and chances are she’ll collect all the notes and be reminded of how thoughtful you are every time she stumbles upon them.
Send a sweet text
If hand written notes are too archaic for you, and bits of paper and pens aren’t handy, send a sweet text message instead. Chances are you text her all the time, but every now and then write her a text message that will make her heart skip a beat. Say something like, “I don’t know if I tell you enough, but I’m so proud of you for working so hard. Can’t wait to see you later xxx.”
We take our partners for granted all the time, and a simple text message is a great way to remind them how important they are.
Take her out
A great idea for couples in long term relationships is a date day. Try to get out of the house once a week, whether it’s to see a movie or to go out to dinner. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, or even expensive, it just has to show that you can make the effort to do something interesting and keep the flame alive.
Cook for her
They say the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but in a way, it’s true for women as well. There’s nothing sexier than a man who can cook, so turn your woman on by making her one of her favorite dishes. Wake up early one morning and make her breakfast in bed, for no reason at all. Or, if you get home from work before her, have dinner on the table by the time she gets home. Even if you order take out, she’ll be happy you made the effort to surprise her.
You’ll see that once you start doing these sweet things for her, they’ll come naturally to you. It’s important not to overload your partner, otherwise she’ll come to expect too much, but if you consistently show her that your love is strong, then she’ll continue to give you hers.
