They say it’s the small things – both in life and in love. It’s the small personal things that say, “I am thinking about you.” It’s the little on-going gestures that say, “You and me – we’re in it together.” And sometimes, it’s the tiniest gesture that says, “I know you.”
We love this list 25 Profound Habits of Real-Life Happy Couples that we found on The San Francisco Globe. It’s a list of 25 small gestures that speak big volumes. Here are a couple favorites:
5. Stop apologizing! Say “thank you” instead.
When you say, "sorry for being a jerk" the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasn’t a big deal. Instead, say "thank you for being so being so patient with me" so the other person has a reason to say they love you.
16. Ready their toothbrush in the morning
The smallest thing I do is get her toothbrush ready every night and every morning and leave it next to the sink for her. She loves it. I got the idea from my dad who has been doing it for my mom for like 38 years. All I do is put the toothpaste on it add a little water and set it on a little thing to keep it off the countertop. It's a small gesture to let her know I'm thinking of her when I wake up and when I go to bed and all day in between.
17. Give away the last bite
Always give them the last bite of any food you share - no matter how amazingly delicious!
