7. Write them notes and leave them letters.

8. Pick things up while shopping… little things they’d love.

9. Kiss them on the forehead in the morning.

10. Occasionally (or more frequently even) make sex romantic and about just being with one another intimately and not just a race to orgasm.

11. Make handmade things that are sentimental between the two of them.

22. Make it a point to tell them frequently how much they care about each other and why they do.

23. Check up on them at work and see how they’re doing, but give them enough space that they can live their own lives without feeling obligated to someone else.

24. Wear each other’s clothes.

25. Run and give each other really huge hugs where someone is inevitably lifted off the ground when they see each other for the first time in a while.
