You and your SO have a fun weekend planned for weeks with your friends/family just outside of the city. All of a sudden, your partner has to rush to the city for a family emergency or something important of their own. Do you frown or do you cover for them? It shows your level of teamwork.

When they’re going to be out partying the night away with their gang and you’re going to have a simple night in with Netflix and some popcorn. Do you have major FOMO and are on the verge of throwing a tantrum or are grateful for the quiet night in? This goes on to show how positively codependent is your relationship.

Even though you’re a couple, it’s not an obligation to do everything together, is it? Do you and your partner see the bliss in travelling with your friends? Or are you just the ones with weird separation anxiety? (It’s a real thing between certain couples, guys! no kidding.)
“Dinners Cooked. Waiting, xo”
When you know they are running miles on a crazy day at work, a sweet text like this can be their incentive to do their work better and faster. It also shows that you’re rooting for their success and that you’re proud of the hard work they’re putting in.

When you know they’ve had a series of bad news through the day resulting into a rather unfruitful day, a little doze of motivation might just help them feel better. They’re not alone, what a better time to remind them that than on one of their worst days. It shows how much you’re concerned of their wellbeing.

You’re at dinner (maybe after a whole week) and your SO’s phone rings off the hook. They’ve been called in for some urgent work. What’s your reaction? Most couples will relate to having given a negative reaction to this in their experience, everyone has. But to support your partner even against your better judgment, sometimes, is necessary and admirable.

When your partner is hesitant about something they secretly want to do, do you push them? You can see through them and know that doing something will make them genuinely afterwards. This shows how well you know them and how much their personal growth matters to you.
Make sure you SAY these things to you partner and of course MEAN IT. Saying and doing goes hand in hand. But it is always important to say thing aloud! That’s how your partner is assured, you care.
