Whether you're in a long-distance relationship or just away for the weekend, learning to cope with periods of separation is an important part of maintaining a healthy partnership. When you can't be together, figuring out ways to show your partner you’re thinking about them will not only put a smile on their face, but it can also give them peace of mind by making them feel more secure in the relationship. Simply taking the time to make the person you love feel appreciated, even when you're not in the same room, can separate a good relationship from a great one.
Although it's easy to overlook the impact small details can have on overall relationship satisfaction, going the extra mile demonstrates to your partner that they're a top priority. After all, who doesn't want to be reminded that they're important? However, all too often, in an effort to seem "chill" it can be tempting to downplay your true feelings to avoid seeming clingy. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to send your SO some love without feeling like a stage five clinger. Here are some thoughtful things you can do to make it clear to your partner that you can't get them out of your head.
If you're dating a foodie, then chances are you've already learned that being fed might as well be a love language. So, arranging for your partner's favorite treat to be delivered to their door will make it clear that you can't get them out of your head.
Even though being apart can be a bit of a bummer, it's also the perfect excuse to come up with creative ways to show each other you care. So, the next time you're missing your partner, don't be afraid to come up with a cute way to let them know.
