Sometimes just a hug and saying "Thank you, I appreciate everything that you do for me" is all you need to do. Being appreciated feels really good.
I think surprises every once in a while are just over all nice gestures. I always make it a point to randomly do something big for my girlfriend of 4 years. We live together, so routine and habit is a big enemy to our relationship.
I think whether big or small, unselfish gestures that will please your mate truly show appreciation. For instance, making his/her favorite meal. My hubby LOVES meatloaf; although, I could go the rest of my life without it and be just fine. Makes him smile every time I pull it from the oven because he knows it's just for him!
Some of the best gestures of appreciation are usually the little things...and you may not even realize you're doing them. Every day when my husband comes home, as soon as I hear the door start to open I jump up (with an exclamation of "Yay!"...I think I've mentioned I'm slightly odd) and hurry to the front of the house to give him a kiss and a hug. When my son is here he runs up with a big smile and then stands with his lips puckered until it's his turn for a kiss. The dog also comes running and jumps around nipping at his back pockets until it's her turn for attention. I also try to do the dishes every day before he gets home, because I know that if I don't then he will and I want him to be able to sit down and relax after his day's work...whereas my day's work is ALL sitting down.
This has been the routine since the day he moved in (except the dog...she's only been here since October). I never even thought about the impact these little things might have until recently when he told me, with tears in his eyes, just how much he loves coming home because he can always tell how much he's loved the moment he arrives. As an added benefit...not only does he hurry home directly after work every day, but I practically have to push him out the door to go spend time with friends and he rarely wants to leave the house without me .
Lmao @ Sunny_S.Asking your mate how their day was,pampering them sometimes,Reminding them of your love,making sure you ask how their feeling.And telling them how much you appreciate them,makes all the difference.

Do you think you are a lucky person?

If you believe in reincarnation as I do, you might believe in what many people call "soul-mates". I'm not sure I believe in soul-mates the way that these people do, though. I don't think soul-mates are people...
