We love bingo but we love our partners too. We have some simple and amazing tips on how to show your love!
“Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” Franklin P. Jones
ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS
- Will you marry me?
Write them a note on a sticky piece of paper and then stick it to their most used credit card.
- When you are at a restaurant
Make sure that you dress up for your partner in nice clothing or just look nicer than you do normally during the week.
Sit next to your partner or across from your partner to be able to look directly at them the entire evening.
Don’t look at anyone else but your partner.
Hold their hand or hands.
LOVE DURING THE HOLIDAYS
- Valentine’s Day
Make a list of all the reasons why you love the person that you’re with. Try to come up with obscure things like the idea that you love the way they brush their teeth or comb their hair. The more specific you are, the more touching it will be.
Always remember the day
Surprise them with a special gift. Try to notice what they talk about wanting over the rest of the year. But make sure it’s something they would never buy for themselves. They will be touched that you remembered. Some couples like to keep small lists of what their partner might like.
- New Year’s Eve
Make sure to kiss your partner at midnight. If you’re separated on the evening, try to call your partner at that time to wish them a Happy New Year
FOR THE FIRST TIME
- When you’re dating
Say it whenever it feels right. Sometimes, saying, “I love you” without planning it or waiting for the ‘right’ time is better than something more complicated.
- In front of other people
You could shout it to everyone that’s around you.
Have it announced over a public address system.
Pass a note to them if you’re in a crowd.
Dedicate a song to them when you’re out on a date.
Bring a small sign with you that says, “I love you” and show it to them throughout the night.
IN BAD TIMES
- When a partner has lost a parent
Go to the hospital, the gravesite, etc. with your partner. Being there is all they really need to know that you love them and are staying by them through these difficult times.
- When they’re in money trouble
Take your partner out on inexpensive dates – the library, the museum, etc. Show them that it’s not their money that you’re interested in – just spending time with them.
- If a pet dies
Spend time with your partner – Because this pet was probably a close companion, you will want to spend more time with your partner to help them feel less lonely.
WHEN YOU’RE CELEBRATING
- New job celebration
Take them out for dinner with your friends – This will give your partner multiple people that will be congratulating them.
- Get him the big screen TV
Take your partner to a place that uses a big screen TV on a night when he wants to watch a certain athletic event.
- Have dessert in bed
Place a small chocolate on your partner’s pillow
DO YOU REALLY NEED A REASON?
But friends, do you really need a reason to express your love? Of course not! Show your love everyday doing small things like:
- Do their car maintenance
- Learn about their family
- Treat their friends well
- Let them play their music loudly
- Buy impractical gifts
- Dress up for no reason
- Do all the chores for the day
- Learn a recipe from mom
- Always remember their birthday
- Just tell them you love them over and over
LOVE, my Bingo Friends, is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
