What are some ways to show your partner you’re serious about a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Now that Valentines Day is over, you are left wondering how to continue making your partner feel loved. Getting them a box of chocolates last week was a good start! Cupid has some great ways to keep them feeling special:

1. Include them in your life: Although you spend a majority of your time together, there are days you don’t see each other at all. Talk to your partner about the things you do when you are apart. Invite them to any sporting events you’re involved in–they will cheer you on the entire time and feel important doing so.

2. Invite them to family functions: Bringing someone home to meet the family is not an easy task. They can be judgmental and over curious about the new person at the dinner table. In these instances, your boyfriend should be more nervous than you are–he’s the one being interrogated by your uncle!  Keep inviting him to family events so they can get to know and respect him–your boyfriend will appreciate that.

3. Talk about the future: Mentioning future plans and aspirations in any relationship can be tricky. You don’t want to scare them away with talk of marriage and kids. Instead, discuss smaller steps; the possibility of moving in together may be a good start. By doing this, you will let your partner know how committed you are to the relationship and hopeful for your future together.
