2. Cooking at home or eating out?In a handmade, creamy mushroom sauce, how much space is there for love and caring? The answer is limitless. Food is synonymous with love. Completely finished. You can't go wrong whether you order food to-go from your local bar, make your own garlic aioli to accompany some prawns or surprise them with their favorite cuisine.
Another decent, if not better, the option is to relieve each other of the task of cooking and cleaning dishes by treating yourself to a night out at one of your town's restaurants or pubs.
But, you must make one pledge during supper. There are no screens. There is no television, tablet, or smartphone. NADA. Turn everything off. In a restaurant, perhaps? Please leave your phones at home. Alternatively, have them on in flight mode and securely tucked away in a purse or pocket. Turn off all notifications and vibrations. Comprende?
3. Do you communicate in the same Love Language?Affirmation in the form of words, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical contact. What is it that they all share in common? Yes, they are all a part of the Love Language phenomenon! Psychologist Gary Chapman has discovered the BIG FIVE ways we express our love. Knowing your partner's Love Language may also provide you with invaluable advice on how to improve his or her experience of your love (... as well as save you from a misunderstanding).
Not sure which of the five languages your sweetie speaks? You're really fortunate! Because you'll have a fantastic chance for a fun, contemplative, and most likely extremely interesting debate!
