Cupid’s Advice:

When your partner is going through a loss or disappointment, it is part of your relationship duty to help them get through this tough time together. Empathy is key when it comes to relationships. Cupid has some ideas on how to help give solace to your partner:

1. Be present: This may seem obvious, but sometimes people have the tendency to flee when bad circumstances arise. Be there for your partner, and listen to everything that they have to say. Instead of trying to change how they are feeling, simply listen and be there for them. Let them vent, and give them copious amounts of love.

2. Distract them: Once you have given your partner time to let out how they are feeling, make efforts to try and shift the energy. Even though you probably can’t take away their disappointment or sadness completely, you do have the capabilities to alter their mind onto something else for the time being. Think of some things you can do that would be special for your partner: cook their favorite dinner, watch their favorite movie together, or go out for a fun date night.

3. Be okay with space: Everyone copes differently. If your partner is the type of person who needs time to themselves in order to get over a disappointment, let them have that. Try not to bombard them while trying to help when they just need some space to themselves. Sometimes it is hard to tell if your partner truly wants space or if they do want you to comfort them. Really try to listen to your partner and get a feel for what they need.

Also, never underestimate the power of hugs!
