Being more affectionate in your relationship tends to make you both more comfortable with one another, as well as bringing you closer together too. There are plenty of subtle ways to show your loved one just how much you care. Here are 8 ways to be more affectionate for you to use.
8. A playful nudge
I find humor to be a large part of a relationship. If you can’t laugh with someone you love, then how can you be completely comfortable? A playful nudge given to your loved one when you both are joking around is a simple sign of affection. Make sure it’s just a nudge and not a sock to the arm that will cause bruises. This gesture might be alright if you’re being one of the guys, but it isn’t a very loving gesture!
7. A smooch on the top of the head
I think this is rather sweet gesture. My husband does this whenever he walks past my chair. Alright, not every time, but at least more than a couple of times each day. It never fails to make me smile. This sign of affection is easiest to do when your loved one is seated, unless you are the taller one in the relationship.
6. Rubbing the small of the back
This may not sound very affectionate, but I guess it’s all in how you do it. Use an open hand and do a couple of slow circles on the small of the back. It has a very soothing effect. You can do this when you are standing next to one another in line.
