My mum always said the little things mean alot in a relationship, and I have always tried to remember that. My partner and I both work really hard, and last year was very trying for us, but I always try to do the little things so he knows that I’m thinking of him.
We always take showers together and I wash him top to toe, nothing sexy (well, sometimes) but I know he loves it. Touch is so important.
I wake up before him most Saturdays and cook him pancakes.
I always make sure he has a clean uniform for cricket.
When he can’t sleep I rub his head until he falls asleep.
I hide love notes in the pockets of his pants.
What do you do?

I give little gifts. Like yesterday, he had a horrible day at work, so I surprised him with a cupcake from this awesome bakery we both like. Nothing big, nothing expensive, just, “Hey, I was thinking of you.” He loves it because his previous relationships were with people who were, well, kind of bitches, and they would never just randomly think of him. I love doing it and I love that it makes him feel loved and valued.
Aside from that, there’s always hugs, kisses, saying “I love you”, etc. I try to tell him I love him frequently, since I know I personally never get tired of hearing it from him 🙂

@aribanana: hahah I was reading yours without seeing where you were from, until you said ‘cricket’. I was like… Straya.
We have a 14 hour time difference (He is in US Virgin Islands) so we have different bedtimes, we usually messsage each other very sweet things before the other wakes up so we always have something sweet to wake up to 🙂 It’s nice to hear those things first thing in the morning, especially when it’s a LDR.

I come over to him all the time when he is playing on the Playstation to give him a cuddle and tell him I love him. I text him to let him know I am thinking of him if he is away somewhere. I also text him several times a day to tell him I love him. I don’t think I do enough reading what you ladies do!

I make him tea every evening. He does so much for me, that this little thing makes him so happy and it’s so easy.

I’m in a long distance relationship with my sweetheart. I send him love notes via text. I use an app called Text Cutie so its unusual than just a text. He loves them! I try what I can its hard sometimes.
I always recommend a book but you can look ulup the basic concept online called 5 love languages. It helps!!! You learn to speak you loved ones language they feel more loved!
Let see if I can remember them all: Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Acts of Deeds, Quality Time & Gifts.
My sweetie and I speak the same, Physical Touch and Quality Time which helps. I used to think mine was Words they help but when he holds me my world is at peace. We talk on the phone tons but some days he doing work, doing other stuff and I will tell him even after 2 hours on the phone I need just 10 minutes of 1 on 1 time. I try to realize I can’t have all his attention but 10 min of quality time I’ll be good for a week. Same goes for him. I think though for him his speaks more Physical Touch and Words so I will send notes. It helps him feel very loved!

@aribanana: I cook almost every meal…every single day, breakfast, make his lunch and put it in the fridge and then dinner. He loves it. I also do random little things like buy him a card and write a note in it saying how much I love him, or buying him a 6 pack of beer and sticking a cute note on it. I like doing stuff like that. I want him to know that I am always thinking of him.

@aribanana: I cook for him as much as I can. I know he really appreciates that. I write him little notes on a board we have that he always sees before he leaves the house in the morning. I take care of his dog when it isn’t convenient for him to (like if he wants to go out for gamenight with his friends I’m not going to make him come home just to do that). Finally, I just really am genuinely interested in the little things about him- how was your day REALLY? And I never shy away from telling him how much I love and appreciate him.
