Understanding Your Partner’s Likes!

Being romantic can be as simple as doing things your partner likes.

Have you ever tried to surprise your partner with something to do for the both of you and your partner didn’t quite give you the reaction you were looking for? Maybe its because you didn’t catch the hints or even took the time to find out what your partner really likes. No matter how we think we really know a person, you should always talk with them to find out what makes them tick.

We sometimes take for granted that we know all there is to know about a person and really don’t pay attention to the signs that are shown. For instance, if you're watching a horror movie and your partner says to you, “I really don’t like watching these horror movies because it makes it hard for me to sleep,” then why would you set a date night for you two to go to dinner and a movie and see the scariest movie playing at the theater? If you think about it, you're just doing the things that you like and are not being considerate of your partner. Find out what his or her favorite food is and take them to a restaurant that serves that dish. Or better yet, maybe cook it at home; only if you think you have skills like that or not.

But, seriously, that will go a long way being that you took the time to prepare their favorite meal or even take them to get it at their favorite restaurant. When you show that you are in tune with your partners likes and dislikes, it will go a long way. It shows, number one, that your are listening to them, that you are paying attention to what they are showing you as well as what they are saying to you.

Let’s be mindful that your partner wants to feel special. They want to feel like they matter to you. Treat them as how you would like to be treated. A lot of times we only think of how we like things, how we want them to be brought to us then wait to see how it is reciprocated back to us. The best thing you can do is to show someone that they mean the world to you and things will go so much smother in your relationship.
