From the moment you made a commitment to them, they have never let you regret it because of the thoughtful things they do every day.
To spend years with someone in a relationship and still not grow tired of the beautiful rush of feelings they fill you with every single day is luck. Call them your soulmate, "the one", or anything else you want, but you know that they will never fall out of love with you when they take the effort to do these for you.
Because they're so attentive to you, your partner knows you in and out. They know what makes you tick and have their own romantic ways to make you feel special. "Passionate love may be more prominent in the earlier stages of a relationship, but it is often compassionate love that sustains a relationship over time," Gary Brown, a licensed marriage and family therapist, told Self.
You walk in through the door and the first thing they do is pull you into their arms. Seeing you when you both come home is their favorite part of the day, and their words and actions show it. It helps you both maintain the emotional closeness with each other and pulling you in towards them is their way of showing "I am yours and you are mine".
They are patient with you and they give you your time to express what you're feeling. Especially when you're unable to cope with what you're feeling, your partner will drop whatever they are doing so that their entire focus is on you. “Empathy is truly the heart of the relationship,” said Carin Goldstein, a licensed marriage and family therapist, according to PsychCentral. And your partner does their best to understand your feelings and do something about it.
While they may get into arguments with you, what they never do is attack you when you're both having fights. "Issues are not swept away under the proverbial rug," couples therapist, Wendi L. Dumbroff, told Bustle. "They are brought into the light of day and discussed, rather than festering until the next time." In addition to this, they are willing to make compromises and meet you halfway.
Your happiness is their priority. They hate seeing you come home exhausted or with a frown on your face. They stick by you through your problems and that's why you hardly have to worry about anything. Because not matter what, you know their support is always with you. You also know that they will always be honest with you and are willing to talk thing out with you when you have a decision to make.
Whether it's with chores around the house or heading out to buy groceries while you stay at home to catch a break, they willingly take the load off you to make life easier for you. They appreciate everything you do in the relationship and find small and big ways to share the responsibilities. They will never be blind to your efforts and love to help out as much as they can.
The two of you have been through rough patches in the relationship and overcome them because your relationship was worth fighting for. They didn't give up when things got tough because they are so well-bonded with you. "[A] bond is like glue: If there is no glue then everything falls apart."
Because your partner never lets go of your hand, through good and bad, you weather every storm together.
