Spend an Hour Listening, actually Listening!

When last did you actually listen to your partner? We hear our loved ones all day long but when they’ve got something to say that takes longer than a minute we tend to fade out. As men we struggle with this. We like to hear the key points nicely summarised and thats all, no more, no less. But our lovely partners often want to talk things out and describe every last detail until we feel like we’re having an outta body experience. Well tip #1 is embrace the experience and truly listen. Respond and engage in the conversation. Try to be as interested as you can and eventually you may just become truly interested.

Do Something your Partner has been Putting off

We all have chores and projects we’ve been putting off for months. Maybe its cleaning out the attic or getting the vegetable garden weeded. No matter how big or small try to take the load off your partner by quietly completing the task for them. Imagine their delight when the thing they’ve been dreading for so long is taken off their plate.

Send your Partner Image Quotes during the Day

You’ve seen them on Google images. The quotes you send people for birthdays or anniversaries. There are dozens of really cool apps on your mobile that will help you create these image quotes or posters in a matter of minutes. Find a cool image of your partner or the two of you and think of something romantic or even sexy to quote on the image. Send it off and wait for the reply. A great way to remind your partner that you’re thinking of them.

Make a 3 Course Dinner to Show you Care

Anyone can pick-up a quick dinner on the way home from work. But actually preparing a dinner and one that includes a starter, main course and desert shows true skill, love and care. Find 1000’s of recipes online or watch a YouTube tutorial and prepare something special. Make sure to set the scene with a nice invite, romantic music and even some flowers for the table and you’ve got yourself a night to remember.

Spend a Day Doing what your Partner wants

Weekend comes around and you’ve got it all planned out. Very often our partners are forced to go along with our plans. Not today. Today you announce that she or he will be managing the day's activities and that you are free to go along with whatever they wish to do. Don’t settle when they respond with “Oh I don’t know, lets just do what you want to do”.

Bring your Partner Breakfast in Bed

There’s nothing better than waking up to a delicious breakfast. It's a great way to start the day on a high. Make you partner's day and spoil them with their favourite breakfast treats in bed. Do a full job by not leaving a huge mess in the kitchen and clean up so they don’t have to worry about that later.

Ask your Partner to Teach you something

There is a certain satisfaction in teaching someone something and knowing you’ve made their day a little more interesting. A sense of fulfilment, a sense of purpose. Give that to your partner by asking them to teach you something that they know and you simply don’t. It can be anything from how to make a cake, knit a sweater, scrapbooking or how to use an app to more complex skills. If the experiment is a success and your partner feels open to it you may also want to return the favor and share some skills.

Show your Partner your Emotional, more Sensitive side

Men are often disconnected from their sensitive, emotional and vulnerable sides. Something to do with the fear of not being in control or not being manly enough. Show your partner that you’re in touch with your sensitive side by opening up about something emotional you’ve probably tried to avoid. This can be in the form of a conversation, visiting a graveyard of a lost loved one, going for counselling, looking through an old childhood family photo album and talking about it. Whatever it is - connect with your partner by sharing your vulnerabilities and opening your heart to let them in.

Ask your Partner to Reveal 10 things they Haven't Told you

This can get real interesting. Some things you're gonna want to hear but there may be a few things you didn't plan on hearing or may have suspected but didn't want to discuss. The idea behind this is getting to know your partner more fully instead of missing them day in and day out. What makes them tick? What’s on their mind? What are they worried about. What turns them on? Always show your partner acceptance and understanding with whatever they reveal or you could risk them clamping up for good.

Take up a Healthy Challenge with your Partner

We spend hours on YouTube or television watching challenges but never attempt any of our own. Challenges bring a sense of purpose and accomplishment and encourage bonding and teamwork like nothing else. So think about joining a boot camp, obstacle course challenge, mini marathon, weight loss challenge or any active challenge thats going to expand your boundaries as a couple.

Book Dinner for your Partner and her/his Friends

Many partners often feel that their husbands are annoyed and intimidated or even jealous of their partner's friendships. Show your loved one that that isn't you and make a reservation and foot the bill for your partner and best friends somewhere special. Show your partner that you support her or his friendships and understand the importance of nurturing those relationships. You can arrange it with the friends secretly to make it a surprise of let your partner in on the idea to make sure they keep a certain date open.

Start Kissing Again

We all loved doing it when we were dating and probably did it quite a lot. But as the years went on after marriage you kissed less and less. Bring back the fire and start kissing your partner more often. It may feel a little uncomfortable at first and you may get a funny reaction the first few times but like all things in marriage - if you keep at it and work hard you’ll both get back on the horse and it will become part of your relationship once more.

Compliment your Partner at least Once a Day
