Oh my, time really flies fast. I’ve been with my amazing boyfriend for 3 years already. 3 beautiful and magical years.
Therefore, I feel obligated to share with you, few things I’ve discovered over the years.
Be yourself. I know this takes time. But when the moment comes, there is nothing more beautiful. Show your dorky, creepy, crazy and childish side to your love. Be crazy together.
Listen and learn. Don’t listen to respond, don’t listen to listen, listen to learn. Whether your love has something worrying them, or they are just describing how boring their day was. If you really listen and care, your partner will feel more loved and important.
The best feeling is, when you know someone better, than they know themselves. When you know how to make them laugh in the toughest situations.
Communicate. I can’t emphasize this one enough. If there is a problem, talk. There is no way around it. You don’t like this or that? Talk. You feel happy. Tell it to your loved one. They will understand, or at least they will acknowledge. And even that is better than suffering right?
Enjoy your interests together. Find what you both love and enjoy it. We love to cook together. So we make sure to use every opportunity to enjoy some quality time in the kitchen. Oh, and of course we love to eat it afterwards. Hobbies are better with two.
Express love and affection with kisses, hugs and compliments. When we started dating, and I realized that this was going to be a life long story, I was worried. Everyday, we see couples on the streets (if they are even couples), not holding hands, not talking together, nothing. I was scared that the chemistry will wear off after a few years. It didn’t happen. And I promise you it won’t. You just have to work for it.
Spend a lot of time. None of the above is possible if you aren’t spending enough time together. Whenever we are separated, we text, constantly. We could say that we are constantly messaging to each other for 3 years. Without break.
