February is known as the “love month” and most of us treat Valentine just as special as Christmas. Most love birds everywhere plan their dates carefully, thinking of ways on how to make their significant other feel extra special during this love season. Almost everyone is bitten by the love bug, and it’s impossible not to see hearts floating almost everywhere.
Ladies are waiting to receive a “surprise” bouquet of flowers and sweets from their men, while the lucky few receive more than flowers and chocolates – as more as valentine gifts could go. The big smiles on their faces and eyes that transform into hearts of those who are in love and feeling loved are proof enough that love is indeed in the air.
February may be the love month, but you do not need to wait for the second month of every year to express your love and be loved.
In fact, you could keep that love burning and hanging in the air all year through! It doesn’t have to be just on Valentine’s day – it should be everyday! You don’t even need to be fancy or spend a lot of money just to make your loved one feel special – after all, all it takes are simple acts that are thoughtful and heart-full, and sometimes, spontaneous.
Here are three simple tips on how to keep the love fever burning:
1. Be Present Always
Being there for your loved one physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually is the most important thing. Talking everyday, sharing your ideas and thoughts, laughing and crying together, and doing simple things together can build a relationship founded in trust and confidence that you got each other’s back, no matter what.
2. Be Consistent But Not Predictable
It is normal to make an extra effort during special occasions, but you do not need special occasions to make an effort to show your love. Consistent little things are the big things, and it does not need to be too fancy or pricey. Just be thoughtful and creative enough so as not to come out predictable. Make random days special, for there is always genuine joy in little surprises.
3. Do Small Things with Great Love
Everything must be heart-made, even small and simple things such as preparing dinner, or washing the dishes, or going out on a routine movie date, or going to church together. Also, being kind, considerate, and understanding of your partner is one important expression of love.
Make everyday a love day.
Do not be loving only once every year – be loving every moment of every day in every year. Simple things such as these and little surprises every now and then will bring your intimacy one notch higher. And, of course, always let your love hang in the air.
