How to show affection to your girlfriend

• What are some of the best ways to convey affection to your significant other?

Andrew Byrne, LMFT:

In order to answer this question, it would be important to get to know how your partner wants to be loved and shown affection. I find that communication is the best source of affection because it conveys that you are interested in getting to know your partner for who they are and not just assuming that you know what they want. How you want to be loved may be different than how your partner wants to receive love and affection and it is important to have these conversations explicitly so as to avoid potential potholes. That being said, you may find that anything that shows you are thinking of that person and putting effort into loving them or conveying affection is a step in the right direction and will likely be received well. We all want to know that we matter and are being seen, so paying attention is the best way to let your partner know they are important to you.
