“Love is supporting each other and helping each other grow into the best version of yourself.”
For our Hug week special, we had with us Antia and Brody Boyd from findtheoneelite.com who spoke about the importance to show support and appreciation in a relationship, to not be fearful of vulnerability and rejection, and open yourself to let love come in. They both knew from the very beginning that they were made for each other, after which it became their life’s motive to help singles find their ‘one’.
So, how do you know that you have found the one? This interview was truly enlightening to answer this question. It is the little signs in a relationship that show if he/ she is the one. You may not realize it at that exact moment, but when you think about it, you become aware of the few moments that make you believe you want to spend the rest of your life with this person.
These were the thoughts running through my head as I sipped my morning coffee and looked out at the world through my drawing room window. It got me thinking of my own relationship and the small moments that built trust and affection between Aaliyah and me.
Affection: It had been a couple of months into my relationship with Aaliyah and things were more than perfect. I had met this loving, caring and beautiful woman and we had been able to connect on so many levels. One movie night, Aaliyah and I were wondering what to get for dinner. Before I knew it, she had called our favorite restaurant and ordered exactly what I wanted. I was in awe. It was a small detail but, it showed a great deal of affection as she knew what I liked in a short span of time.
Appreciation: It’s important not only to feel the appreciation for your loved one, but also to be able to express it. The first time I fell sick after we had started dating, I realized how much she cared for me. She was there when I needed help and even made a surprise visit with soup! It was important for me to show how much I appreciated her for doing these small things to help me get better.
Support: During a troubling and difficult time in my career, Aaliyah was there to help me get through it. She showed the support I needed to regain belief in my abilities and talents. She helped me to become a better version of myself and trusted me not to give up.
It may not be a specific moment that shows you have found the one, but a culmination of small things over a period of time.
Super charge your love life by expressing your affection for your loved ones by the small things you do on a daily basis. Make them feel loved, wanted and needed.
