Showering your partner with love is one of the most satisfying parts of being in a relationship. If you're trying to come up with little things you can do to make your partner feel loved, there are actually a ton of underrated ways to spoil your partner. According to Anita Chlipala, licensed marriage and family therapist and author of First Comes Us: The Busy Couple's Guide to Lasting Love, figuring out your partner's love language is the first step to understanding how to make them feel special.
“I see how important [love languages] are in the love lives of my clients," Chlipala previously told Elite Daily. "People do have a preference for how they feel loved and cared for by their partner." The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate was first written by couples' therapist Dr. Gary Chapman and outlines how most people give and receive love through either through acts of service, quality time, physical touch, receiving gifts, or words of affirmation. In his book, Dr. Chapman asserts that most people have one primary love language and a couple more secondary ones. Once you and your SO have figured out your love language(s), here are some ways you can show them how much you care.
