Connecting with Your Fiancé this Valentin...

With Valentine ’s Day around the corner, we try to go out of our way to find the “perfect” gift, plan the best date night and choose the right outfit to impress our fiancé. While all of these things are great, and trust me, I’ve done them all, I want to encourage you to slow down and think of why you are going out of your way. Why are you putting in so much effort to impress your fiancé? Well, it’s to connect with your fiancé and to be romantic! We all love knowing that someone is there to make us feel special and we love doing the same thing in return. The outcome for most of these date nights and gift giving is to have a moment of intimacy and feel secure and loved by your partner!

As you plan your date night with your fiancé and find the perfect gift for him or her, here are some other things you can do when it comes to emotionally connecting with your fiancé and deepening your intimacy with them.

  • Update your love maps.
    • We constantly update our phones, sometimes automatically. But, how often do you update each other on what your interests and goals are? If you have been with your partner for a few years or even months, I can guarantee that they are not the same person they were when you first met!
    • Download the free love map questionnaire and see where you both fall on your “Love Maps”. It’s a fun way to get to know your fiancé, have fun conversations and deepen your intimacy.
  • Write down why you love your partner and why you want to be with them.
    • Leave sticky notes for them on the mirror or on their night stand.
  • Put your phone away while spending time together and make your fiancé a priority.
  • Don’t talk about the wedding details. Instead, talk about what moment you are most looking forward to at your wedding (i.e. your first kiss, your first dance, etc.) and why that moment will be special for you.
    • Hint: It’s more than being about the great picture that you will post on Instagram.
  • Give each other a massage and take a bath together.
  • Go dancing or dance in your living room.
  • Recognize your partner by saying some of the following phrases: thank you, I appreciate you, I love when you do______, whenever you do ______ I feel happy.

Remember that these tips are absolutely FREE! Sometimes we can have the perfect connection and intimate moment without spending a dime.

If you would like to learn more on how on how to increase your intimacy and connection with your fiancé, I encourage you to check out my online relationship class (you can save money on your marriage license after completing the program) and some of my upcoming couples' workshops.
