1. Meaningful and thoughtful gifts
Gifts are an important part of any relationship – especially if your love language is gift-giving. When was the last time your partner bought you a gift? We’re not just talking about a £5 bunch of flowers from the petrol station either – we’re talking proper gifts that show you truly care. Show your commitment and take a look at promise rings.
2. Constant praise and compliments
Does your partner see you in a positive light? Does praise and compliments come in bucketfuls?
The most committed relationships are happy ones. If you truly love someone, you forget about their flaws and only focus on their positive attributes.
3. All “we” and “us”
Does your partner love making future plans together? Do they mostly say “we” and “us” rather than “me, myself, and I”?
Having deep and meaningful conversations about your future plans show they’re in it for the long haul.
4. Support through thick and thin
If you’re in a committed relationship, you’ll know how to support each other emotionally. The best, most caring partners are your support system – they’ve always got your back no matter what.
They’ll celebrate your successes and help you pick up the pieces during your bad times too.
5. Needs are being met
Are your basic emotional and physical needs fulfilled? And vice-versa? Do you feel truly satisfied in the relationship?
We all have human needs – whether it’s through sex or emotional support when you come home from work feeling angry or sad and need someone to vent to. Is your partner doing a good job of meeting these kinds of needs?
6. Not afraid to make sacrifices
You’ve probably heard this before – “relationships are all about sacrifice”. But it’s true, you do need to compromise to make the relationship work from both ends.
Does your partner make sacrifices to make you happy? Do they make selfless decisions that take your happiness into account too?
7. Never strays
If you’re in a committed relationship, you won’t even feel tempted by anyone else on a sexual level. But do you get that attention? Do you feel loved and like you’re the only person in the world? And do they only have eyes for you?
You deserve to feel sexy, beautiful, and utterly adored.
