Yesterday, I saw a couple arguing so loudly in public and it just didn’t seem right to me. I’m not certain but they looked married to me. I thought to myself, maybe a simple word or phrase from either of them would have made a huge difference at that moment. I strongly resisted the urge to walk up to them and
slap talk to them.
If you desire a long-lasting relationship success, you must always be conscious of what you say to your partner. It’ll surprise you to know that these “little” things matter the most. Say these things to your partner today (if you haven’t) and see the difference.
1. What do you think?
Your relationship shouldn’t be a dictatorship, but rather a democracy. Ask your partner how they feel about all decisions big and small, from where to visit for vacation, to your children’s education.
2. I miss you.
Telling your partner you miss them through a simple text or word of mouth will make them feel needed, wanted, and appreciated.
3. How can I help?
Lighten your partner’s load by asking them how you can help when they appear stressed out or overburdened.
4. You’re so beautiful/gorgeous/handsome/hot!.
If you don’t compliment your partner, how can you expect them to feel wanted or appreciated? Tell them all about their strong-suits by saying things like:
• Physical – “I love it when you smile, because you have the cutest dimples.(if she does have dimples o. lol)”
• Attitude – “I love how patient/thoughtful/kind/confident you are, because that makes me feel ____________”
• Attire – “you look so amazing in that dress” or “Hello, sugar… you look quite Good in that suit today!”
5. I’m sorry. You’re right.
Truth is, every couple has ups and downs, every couple argues, and that’s the thing—you’re a couple, and couples can’t function without trust. Making a mistake is okay as long as you’re humble enough to say you’re sorry and accept personal responsibility. Refusing to admit your mistakes, could turn what would have been a small misunderstanding into an eternal dispute that destroys trust.
6. Thank you
OK, now me which one you’d rather hear from your partner:
• Get me my phone.
• Hey honey, could you please get my phone? I’m a bit busy with something here, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!
Big difference, am I right?
7. I love you.
Always say these words to your partner as often as you can. No matter how long you’ve known a person, I can promise that those 3 words will never lose meaning!
