“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn.
To be in love is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. It makes you relish every moment (including minimalist ones) to the fullest. This euphoric feeling makes you want to become a better version of yourself. To put it simply, when you are with your partner, every thick and thin phase of your life becomes easy to manage and delightful. Don’t you agree?
Perhaps, that’s exactly why you are considering taking your relationship to the next level by proposing to your partner. If it’s true, below are a few things you must learn about your partner before starting with romantic and unique proposal planning.
- What Are Their Expectations From This Relationship?
This is one of the critical questions that you must ask your partner before taking any step for your future. Once the honeymoon phase of a relationship is over, disagreements and disappointment begin to cloud its goodness. It generally happens because partners fail to understand each other’s desires and expectations from the relationship. In order to avoid such a scenario, you must learn about your partner’s expectations of the relationship.
A few questions that you can ask your partner are:
- Is it casual or serious?
- Do you have any insecurities that may get triggered?
- Are you sure about long-term relationships?
These are a few things that will help you understand each other better, set boundaries, and strengthen your bond.
- What Is Their Love Language?
Every person has a love language that helps them feel appreciated, loved, and honored. Typically, there are five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, physical touch, quality time, and gifts. Understanding your partner’s love language will help you improve your relationship and lower the chances of conflicts. Moreover, you can use love language to show your partner how much you value their presence in your life.
Suppose your partner’s love language is physical touch. In that case, going out on dates, cuddling, kissing, holding hands, and getting a little cozy will make them feel loved and valued. In fact, you can also use different products such as real whizzinator XXX, scented candles, or dim lights to create a romantic and intimate ambiance on your date. These little gestures will help your partner feel secure and encourage them to reciprocate the same feelings.
- How Do They Cope With Stressful Times?
Know that not every day is the same. Some days are filled with happy memories, love, and laughter. While other days are gloomy, stressful, or numb. Learning how your partner deals with stressful days is critical to help a relationship last forever. It will help you know what the right step to take is.
For instance, if your partner likes to be alone or spend “me time” when stressed, you can send them an affirming text message. Or, you can do the house chores so that your partner can relax in the meantime.
These are a few questions that you must get an answer to before going ahead with proposal planning. Understand that relationships are all about exploring or learning new things about your partner. You must make consistent efforts to make this beautiful relationship last longer and happier.
