Popular culture is full of references to the idea of soulmates and that one true love we have in life. From Princess Bride to Twilight, people are enchanted by the stories of two people withstanding time and troubles. But, it’s not easy to find such epic love, so once we do, it’s easy to smother it with care out of fear to lose it.
However, love is supposed to be nurtured and not turned into a habit. Therefore, daily displays of affection are allowed and warranted in order to keep showing love to your soulmate. It doesn’t have to be anything big or expensive, but something that will simply say how much you care.
Cook them food
Cooking food for your partner may be something ordinary and not seem special at all. But it all depends when you do it and how you arrange everything. This is especially important for those who usually don’t prepare meals in the union since this would be a nice way to show their love.
If your partner is coming back from work late, wait for them with plates on the table and food on the stove. They will come home tired and hungry and nice homemade meal will chase all their worries away. You will also show them that your home is a safe place where they are always taken care of and can find a sanctuary.
Use touch to say you love them
Touch is essential for a relationship and one of the non-verbal ways to show you care. Set the alarm for 15 minutes earlier than usual to snuggle with your partner in the morning. Or, just lay down on the couch and have them in your arms while watching a movie.
Just don’t go overboard with a public display of affection if you know that your partner is not a fan or feels uncomfortable with it. The simplest thing as holding their hand in public while walking or sitting at the theatre which will make them feel special and cared for.
Kiss them in more ways than one
Kiss on the lips is the symbol of a relationship, but that is not the only way you can show your affection. Sometimes, a small kiss can be as big as a house and mean the world to the other person. Basically, kiss them when you want to and don’t wait to do it on a specific occasion like when you part or during a big make-out session.
Cheeks and forehead are perfect for small kisses, but the back of the palm, neck, and shoulder are fine as well. And kiss them unexpectedly, while they chop onions or read a book. Of course, waking them up with a kiss and telling them goodnight with one is welcoming, as well.
Pay attention to details
In order to pay attention to details, you will have to listen and be able to read the reactions of your partner. After all, the little things can sometimes be as valuable as big deeds and words. Make them a cup of tea if you notice they get the sniffles or go with them to the movie they really want to see.
Notice when they feel sad and if they don’t want to talk about it, give them a hug and snuggles. Remember dates and events that are not only important to you as a couple but to your partner as well. If you have a problem to remember, use one of the apps available to keep you on your toes.
A thoughtful gift
An unexpected gift for no other reason than to show they mean the world to you will surely make them smile. Opt for one of the lavish gift baskets with wine, fruits, chocolates and other things they may like. Don’t wait anniversary to buy them jewelry or take them out of town for a long weekend.
One flower can make all the difference, you don’t need a bouquet or a 1000 blooms. Even a handwritten note in the morning to welcome them when they wake up will make their day. It’s all telling them they are special and important part of your life.
A love letter for your soulmate
We all wrote a love letter in our lifetime in one way or the other. But nothing can beat the pen and the paper kind that somehow seems timeless. Don’t worry about not being crafty with words or lacking the literary proficiency.
Your soulmate knows who you are and they love you for it. So be yourself and don’t be afraid to tell them all about your love in a few sentences or pages. Furthermore, don’t write only one letter but turn this into a tradition you will go to from time to time.
In the end
Showing love to your soulmate is a unique experience that will be gratifying for both. You will not only show love but receive it as well and that way your bond will grow stronger. After all, soulmates are for a lifetime so be ready to be loved and cherished abundantly.
