What are some ways you can support your partner’s career?

Cupid’s Advice:  

The human race is a self-centered one. We want others to pity us in times of need or to praise us in times of joy. When you are in a committed relationship, that attitude must change in order for your partnership to stay strong. Here are three ways to support your partner’s career and show how much you truly care:

1. Surprise them: If your partner receives a promotion at their job, surprise them with a nice dinner or even a simple card. Anything to say how proud you are of this exciting announcement will make the promotion even more special.

2. Lend an ear: If your partner is worried or stressed about a project at work, take the time to actively listen to their concerns. Allowing them to vent will show them that you really care about what’s going on and that you’re there to help them work through any issues they may have.

3. Plan a date night: If your partner loses their job or even just has a really rough day at the office, take them out for a night of fun and relaxation. Put off discussing the tough situation until tomorrow, but don’t put it off for good. If needed, help your partner in their job search. No matter what, be positive — tomorrow will be a better day!
