Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes you just want to remind your partner of how much they mean to you. Don’t be shy when it comes to publicly expressing your love for your significant other:

1. Keep them close: Simple gestures like hand-holding or frequent hugs and kisses will make them feel special. Without going over the top with the PDA (unless you both are into that sort of thing), keep your partner within arms’ reach to publicly express how close the two of you are.
