Totally intimate dating
So how do you know if you're actually connected to your partner or just attached?
According to experts, there are some subtle signs you can look out for.
Maybe a regular Saturday night date, or a Sunday movie, or just a hot night in once in a while. Simple, everyday ways to surprise include buying a little gift that you think he’ll love, filling the fridge with his favorite foods and tipples one weekend, or getting dressed up and cooking a fabulous dinner when he thought you were having a takeout night.
Keep on cuddling each other on the sofa, kissing each other goodnight and having a long hug at the end of a long day.
Basically, if you're attached to a relationship because it fulfills a need (i.e.
a need to get married), you'll be more focused on reaching an end goal rather than building a deep and meaningful connection with your chosen partner.
But it does mean that it’s a good idea to find out if you’re roughly on the same page in terms of your attitude to money and your future goals.But if you’re both at home together often, you might find it’s easy to fall into a rut of watching TV together and feeling like you can’t simply go off and do your own thing. This especially the case if you’re dating someone with anxiety.The problem is, that an uneven split of chores leads to resentment down the line.I’m Lachlan Brown, the founder, and editor of Hack Spirit.I love writing practical articles that help others live a mindful and better life.
