What Makes You Feel Loved?

February 8, 2009

Expressing and showing your love in a relationship can often be a challenge. For some of us, finding the right way to show our love and affection is difficult. For others, we may show our love and affection in ways that aren’t always appreciated or recognized by our partner. Many may simply be too caught up in the daily distractions of life, work, and family to constantly show their partner how much they mean to them.

If you’re searching for that perfect elusive Valentine’s Day Gift or have found that your style of showing love and affection doesn’t always match your partner’s, you may benefit from asking yourself and your partner one simple question:

What Makes You Feel Loved?

All of us have had very unique experiences in life and our relationships. We each also have individual personalities which further shape our feelings and actions. Because no two people are alike, it’s only natural for there to be no generic way to show someone how much you love them.

Many times we may be showing our love to our partner without them even recognizing it, or it being what they really want. Unless the things you do to express and show your love is one of the things that make your partner feel loved, its quite likely it will go unrecognized or under appreciated, even if you put a lot of effort into it.

Even singles and those who are not in a relationship currently can benefit from asking themselves the question of What Makes You Feel Loved? Knowing the answers can help you find someone compatible in showing and expressing love the same ways you do.

I challenge you today for you – and your partner – to both make a list of the things that make you feel loved. Try to come up with at least 5, shoot for 10 if you can. Share your lists with your partner and try to incorporate those ways of showing and expressing love in your relationship. You may be pleasantly surprised at how answering one simple question can dynamically change your relationship for the better.
