1. Publicly gush once in a while: You don’t need to go crazy with the public gushing, but it’s almost guaranteed that your partner will appreciate the recognition with family, friends, or social media connections. If you’re proud of your partner for something, yell it from the rooftops!

2. Plan a surprise “just because”: When you’re in a long-term relationship, it can be easy to get into a routine. Before you know it, your relationship is hitting the “rut” stage. To keep things interesting, consider planning a surprise trip or date for your partner. It’s even better if it’s “just because” and not for a special occasion, to show you’re thinking about him/her all the time.

3. Do your own things: We’re sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder.” Well, it’s true! You definitely want to keep your independent lives intact, just as you keep your together lives in mind. Keep your own groups of friends, and get away sometimes. When you come back together, you’ll be even more grateful for your relationship.
