How do you feel loved

Love - how it expresses itself in a relationship

When we speak of love in a partnership, we assume that we all understand the same thing. If we would let our partner add the sentence "Love is, if ..." then we would probably be amazed at what he would come up with.

What we mean by love, what thoughts, feelings and behaviors we associate with it, depend heavily on our experiences in childhood. We learn what love is from how our parents and close caregivers behave towards us, but also how our parents treat one another. In some families love is more evident in gifts and financial security, in others in joint activity, time and interest for one another.

Sometimes we do without certain things or do certain things because we believe that we can bring joy to the partner with them. In reality, however, this is not an expression of love for him.

You can't force others to love you, you can only make yourself someone who is lovable.

For a successful partnership, it is important that we know how to signal our love to our partner.

We can talk about it together: When do I feel loved? When do you feel loved What do I need to feel loved What do you need to feel loved

Love alone understands the secret of giving gifts to others and getting rich yourself in the process.
Clemens von Brentano

There is a difference between love and being in love.
