Falling in line with one of the 10 phrases you should be regularly telling your partner, giving compliments is a less recognized, but still very important aspect of a healthy relationship.

6. Offering Emotional Support

Everyone has their ups and downs, but being there for your partner's downs is the most important. When they need a shoulder to lean on, be there for them! It's crucial that you learn how to be flexible too; do they need a listening ear, words of encouragement, or physical comfort?

7. Showing Affection

While it might not be everyone's love language, showing signs of physical affection is still vital for any healthy relationship. Whether it be holding hands, hugging, or a kiss, these little actions can convey so much love that sometimes not even words can convey.

8. Making Time for Her

Even when you're really busy with work or personal matters, always try to put in your best effort to make time for your partner. They should be a priority in your life, meaning it's not something you can just neglect. It doesn't have to be something grand, it could simply be enjoying TV together after dinner. Just setting aside some time to make sure you two see each other can be enough.

9. Celebrating Her Achievements

Individual successes are shared successes when you're in a relationship. So when your partner has a big win and accomplished a goal, make sure you take the time to celebrate it! Show them that you're proud and happy for them. Whether it's a small, private celebration between the two of you or throwing a small party in their honour, making that effort is all that matters.

10. Cooking for Her

Sometimes, the way to your partner's heart is through the stomach. Who doesn't love a delicious, home-cooked meal made by their partner? And if it's out of the blue, done to surprise you or help you out after a long day, it can feel all the more special.
