Cupid’s Advice

Birthdays are the perfect time to make your partner feel special. There’s never a better time to show you appreciate their existence, than the anniversary of the day they were born. Follow these tips to communicate how much that makes you happy:

1. Be excited: It should be clear to your partner how excited you’ve been for their birthday if you planned a party or spent time on a thoughtful gift or activity. Regardless, be happy and excited to celebrate your partner’s birthday. Some people are sensitive on their birthdays, so you need to show enthusiasm and give them tons of positive attention.

2. Celebrate with others: Encourage your partner to socialize on their birthday, or arrange a dinner with friends yourself. It’s important they get attention from their friends and family to feel valued. Make sure this is happening, even if they seem hesitant.

3. Don’t be empty handed: This doesn’t mean you have to buy any sort of expensive gift. Just show you put enough thought into their birthday to get them a present or arrange some celebration. As their significant other, it’s partially your responsibility they feel appreciated. If you come up with nothing, what are they supposed to think about your relationship?
