In Love And Still Lonely?

Posted on January 19, 2016

Love could be fickle. We might fall in love with someone who is incapable of expressing emotions or affection. In fact, falling in love with the wrong person can be the worst of all heartaches.

Sometimes love makes us less lonely, sometimes it makes us more lonely. On the other hand, closeness is a reliable method of getting 2 people closer to each other. Closeness always reduces feelings of being alone in this world.

Here are 3 simple tips to get closer to your partner...

1) Welcoming Support - Trust your partner enough to render support to you when you are in a difficult situation (outside of the relationship). Doing this allows him or her to be there for you and to learn more about what types of things are a struggle for you.

2) Planning Date Swaps - Date swaps are dates that one partner plans around the other partner’s interests. Doing these regularly (alternating between who’s planning and who’s receiving) gives both people a chance to actively recollect what the other person likes.

3) Using Non-Love Language - Whilst it is nice to hear "I love you", think about other phrases you could use to describe your positive feelings toward your partner, such as: “I admire you,” “I appreciate you,” or “I’m proud of you.” Mixing these in will remind you that you do indeed feel more than just love for your partner.
