Everyone loves a genuine compliment. No matter how hard it may seem, looking for the best in someone or their efforts is a great habit to get into. Remember, compliments are not just about how someone looks, they can be about how someone handled a particular situation or just a compliment about the endearing nature of their personality.
Offer a shoulder or foot massage
In a close relationship, a foot or back massage is a wonderful way to help your loved one unwind and relax. After a long day standing on their feet or sitting behind a desk, either of these terms of endearment will be a welcome pleasure and received as a genuine act of love. (Bonus: Massage has many surprising benefits.)
