Did you know that being in love boosts your health? According to research, people in philia-based relationships have less pain, witness short hospital visits, see doctors less often, and exude positive emotions. There are many more benefits of having a loving partner.
In this age, finding true love is like winning a lottery! If you are lucky to have a significant other that means the world to you, here are creative ways to show love.
Write Your Love one Letter.
In many families, love letters of the generations before are part of memorabilia carefully tucked away as memories. These treasures are used to evoke nostalgia as the letter-writing practice is no longer trendy.
It may sound outdated, but writing your significant other a letter still features among the top heartfelt romantic gestures. Writing a letter takes time, energy, and all our attention. Unlike a text, putting it on paper shows how much you cherish someone. You also remember more things you need to say when you write.
Get a paper and pen, and express yourself to the love of your life through a letter. These written expressions are the best way to communicate eternal love to your partner. Letters will outlive you.
Eyes are windows to the soul. Whether you are seeking to improve your love life or trying to develop a relationship, eye contact is a sure way of showing love. Holding your partner’s gaze is an irresistible show of interest.
Locking eyes with your SO in a room full of people shows affection in a decent and classy way. It does not gross anyone and also makes your partner feel extremely good.
The world has enough critics. Your partner must have encountered enough share of disappointment and discouragement. Be their cheerleader!
Everyone loves support, but it hits differently when you receive cheer from your inner circle. Besides maintaining a good relationship, rooting for your SO is a beautiful show of love. You are a team, and that is what teammates do!
Offer a Listening Ear
Listening is a rare skill among many people. Whoever, anyone can acquire and develop it with practice.
In a romantic relationship, listening is one of the ways to show deep love to your partner. Active listening means you care, and nothing matters more than that moment.
You do not have to offer any solution, but listening to your partner unpack their emotional baggage is therapy. Offer them your shoulder or a hug and listen.

Relationships experts advise that positive encounters like playing among couples counter negativity, helping relationships thrive.
Get off your couch and indulge in some fun-filled activities. Think outside the box and intentionally create memories.
Learn a new dance, create a game, chase the butterflies, or race on the beach! There are thousands of things you can do to have fun, indoors and outdoors.
We all fall short in some areas. Help your SO out of bad habits gently. If your partner has poor eating habits while you have it all together, help them develop healthy eating. Having an accountability partner in a spouse is a different kind of love.
The Power of the Touch
Physical touch, a hug, a kiss, or a back rub is a creative way to love. Therapists recommend a loving touch for mood-boosting, stress relief, and possibly cold and flu prevention.
You now have good reasons to cuddle!
Many people have regretted not loving enough when on their deathbeds. The above tips will keep your love fiery. If you find love, maximize it. Love matters most.
