Relationship is a give-and-take affair

How often do you do nice things for your sweetheart? Think about it. In the last 48 hours, have you done something for your love that would bring a smile to their face? Have you done something for them to remind them that they are important to you?

At the beginning of the relationship, couples love to treat each other like loyalty. They go out of their way to make their new loves feel special.

And this is precisely why the relationship is at its sweetest at the beginning. There are so many things new couples do for each other that there is always a reason for a smile, even when they are away from each other.

As the relationship matures, couples become more comfortable with each other, and stop giving. They stop investing their time, resources and thoughts in the relationship. Sometimes one partner becomes the giver and the other becomes the taker.

The takers take and take and forget to give. And the givers give and give and forget that they also have needs. Eventually, it becomes a lopsided arrangement where one partner is well taken care of and the other is frustrated and neglected.

So, what is it exactly that you can do for your partner, to make their day? Revisit the days you first agreed to date. What is it that you did effortlessly for them? You could do random romantic texts. Write them poetry. Dedicate songs to them. Buy them well thought out gifts. Give them hugs and back rubs.

Make them their favourite meals. Complement them on something they do well. Send them chocolate and flowers if they like this. Help them with something they are struggling with. Spend quality time with your sweetheart. Tell them you love them.
