7 Ways To Be Kind To Your Partner

Sex and Relationships Blog

An important factor in any relationship is to be to kind to one another, but sometimes we get so caught up in our own day that we forget to show a bit of kindness to our partners. Whether you've been together for a few months or 40 years, it can be easy to forget sometimes, but you should never let it become a habit. After all, it doesn't take a lot of time and energy to be kind, and your partner will appreciate it so much that it may even improve your relationship and how close you currently are. So, what can you do? I have 7 simple ways that you can be kind to your partner; and it doesn't include doing the dishes!

Let them know that you're thinking of them...
We all have our bad days, God knows I do - my emotional-ass has already cried 8 times today - so I know that letting them know you're thinking of them (without having to ask for it) can change their entire mood or even make their day. A simple text to say "I miss you" or "Thinking about you" will do the trick.

Listen. Really listen...
Do you ever ask how their day was and then tune out as soon as they start talking? Yeah they noticed that. Just show that you're listening to them and that what they're saying or feeling matters to you. Plus, they will be much more inclined to ask you in return and listen to what you have to say too. 

Tell them what you love about them...
Remember at the start of your relationship where you'd say things like "I love your eyes", "I love your laugh", "I love your smile"? Keep saying them; there's no such thing as too much. I mean, you don't have to say it every day but often enough so that they constantly feel loved by you. When you tell them what you love about them, every time feels like the first time. It's a great way to revisit the butterflies you used to feel.

Support their dreams and passions...
We all have things we're passionate about and dreams we would love to live, and it feels amazing when you're partner supports you wholeheartedly and cheers you on. How beautiful would it be to share your passions with your love? If for some reason you don't personally like their dreams, never make them feel like they're stupid for having those dreams and for wanting something extraordinary from life. 

Tell them you love them everyday...
This one isn't exclusive to your partner only, because I believe we should all tell our loved ones that we love them, every single day. I personally do it multiple times a day, but as long as you tell them at least once then they will appreciate it. Life can be taken away from us at any given moment, so don't wait to tell them tomorrow - tell them now.

Put your phone away...
When you're spending quality time together, actually be together. Put your phone away. The meme's, likes and Snapchat's can wait a few hours - they're not going anywhere. Enjoy your time together and be present in the moment. Making them your priority for a few hours is a kind gesture that they will most definitely notice.

Be respectful of their alone time...
Alone time is so important for all of us, and it's needed in order to be kind to ourselves. Respect that they need that time alone to do their own thing, and in turn they will respect your alone time.


No dishes, no flowers or a 3-course-meal - just 7 simple ways to be kind to your partner. Because why wouldn't we want to make our loved ones happy?

With love, Han

  1. For me making sure my partner has his alone time is a big one for me. I tend to be so clingy and want my partner to be it all, my best girlfriend, my coach, my provider, my everything! I have learned I need to allow him to have his hobbies and I take some of my own. Then we get the time to miss each other! Great tips I needed that.

  2. I think a lot of this applies to nurturing friendships as well. To me just making sure you're spending quality time and not picking up your phone the whole time you're spending time with someone is such a big one.

  3. I like the put away phone bullet c: More people should do this and not pin it on the other person for being insecure or wanting respect and attention.
