Reconnect with Romantic Reminders
The couples I work with often say they don’t get positive or loving phrases from their partners. They yearn to feel appreciated, beautiful and loved. It doesn’t take much; a simple thank you for doing that for me can go a long way.
Couples often get caught up in the busy-ness of life, and taking care of everything that needs to get done without taking emotional care of each other. What does emotional care mean? It means showing your partner or spouse that you appreciate them, that you are grateful for them notice how hard they work and how much they do for you. It seems simple and so easy, but you would be surprised at how many couples never do this. They don’t realize how much of a positive impact this can have on your partner. If it doesn’t happen, over time, spouses can become resentful, and feel both lonely and unappreciated.
Instead of getting positive reinforcement from their spouse, they may get criticism, nagging and negativity. That is not sexy or romantic and creates an emotional disconnection. It is not gender specific, and happens for men and women. A relationship needs to be nurtured, and given attention to grow and flourish just like a flower. If it doesn’t get the warmth from the sun and water to grow and bloom, it will wither and die. A loving partnership needs to be fed on a regular basis by providing love, support, showing appreciation and attention.
To help you achieve the relationship you deserve and desire I have put a list of 33 phrases you and your partner can use as prompts to help your relationship grow and blossom. I am certain if you use some of these romantic reminders daily, you will see what a difference they can make.
