Cupid’s Advice:

It’s not always easy to support your partner if it means he’ll be away from you. You can’t always support their dreams wholeheartedly, but you can try. Cupid is here to help:

1. Stand by them: No matter what their endeavor is, it’s nice if you make time for them. Whether it’s a speech or a rec softball game, they’ll appreciate the gesture and catching your eye in the crowd. Just the idea of your support will make them happy.

2. Share with others: Mentioning in a casual conversation that there’s a game or event that your partner is a part of can boost their confidence. Take your friends to support the cause even if it’s dull or something you aren’t necessary interested in. Making an effort is all it takes to encourage him to pursue his dreams.
