Clean Your Love's Place
Leslie was very organized by nature. Rick was not. Rick's work shed was an absolute mess and he complained that he could never find anything.
The work shed was someplace that Leslie didn't frequent. She didn't care whether he kept it clean or not. But, she knew that he would love to have it organized.
So, as a birthday gift, she gave him a note saying she would clean it for him.
Many times men express their love for their partner by "doing things." Women should do the same.
Doing something concrete for the person you love can be one of the most romantic things you can do. When she comes in and cleans his place or he goes and cleans out her rain gutters, partners are making a time commitment into the relationship.
The idea of someone we love doing something we loathe is just really cool. Besides, cleaning someone else's place isn't as bad as working on your own place.
Don't send the message that "you’re a slob" though. You might want to clean one room, for instance. Do it in a spirit of love and not "I'm sick of this clutter."
Don"t think about throwing anything away – especially things that he or she loves. Remember, it’s not about changing his or her behavior but about showing how much you care. It"s okay to polish the chrome in the bathroom, but throwing things out is not okay.
It's not fair to peak into drawers and invade someone's private life when you are doing them a favor and cleaning.
Also, unless you have a key and free reign of the place, giving a "gift certificate" good for doing the laundry, cleaning the oven, mowing the lawn or waxing the car may be a better idea than breaking and entering.
Do Something He or She Likes
No two people are exactly alike. In the early days of a relationship, you"re probably willing to do just about anything to spend time with your partner. But, as the relationship develops, you start to want to spend time doing "your" things or doing things together that you can both enjoy.
That's why it is such a treat when you say you'll do something that your partner likes exclusively. Give her tickets to the ballet (and the promise that you'll go without complaining. Give him tickets to Professional Wrestling and avoid making comments that it's all made up.
And, you don't have to actually give the tickets. Give a "gift certificate" for "one event of your chose with no complaints and no strings attached."
Your willingness to do something you hate because the person you love loves it, is one of the true signs of love.
Another idea is to give a gift certificate for a "night out with the girls or boys" without recrimination or recompense (and of course, without whining). This tells your partner that you care about them and really want to make them happy. Even though you do lots of things together, you don't have to do everything together.
Ps. This is the perfect gift to yourself to maintain a loving relationship ==>>>
