How do you let your partner know that you like him/her?
Words and gestures you give to your partner have a positive impact on your relationship. A positive response to this one will bring you and your loved one closer together!
This form of communication makes your relationship more sustainable.
In verbal communication, you can show your partner in a strong way that he/she is so important to you.
Take a look at the following statements and evaluate the difference!

I want to go hiking with you, will you join me? or
Dearest, I want so much to go hiking with you, I always feel so connected by going hiking with you, will you come with me?
In the first example, it is a neutral invitation. It is correct but does not make your partner feel important and/or special to you.

This makes it personal and makes it clear that it is not about walking but “walking with you. An invitation to which it is difficult to answer “no. It confirms your particularity.
In the third example, reinforce the second example by including pet names or feelings. You communicate to your partner exactly what he/she means to you. In terms of communication, we talk about this in terms of content, relation and existence. This simply means that you communicate what about, how you relate to your partner AND that you care about your partner.
