1. Leave her something in a public place.
Maybe this is a note on the windshield of her car, a bouquet of flowers at her work, a special message taped or written on her bathroom mirror. This doesn’t have to be grand, but it’s thoughtful, sweet, and shows everyone around her that she’s loved.
2. Hold her hand in public.
Some sort of intimate contact—whether that’s pulling her closer, grabbing her hand, or putting your arm around her shoulders—claims her as yours. You’re not only making her feel comforted and cared for, but you’re expressing your love in a physical way.
3. Post something public about your relationship.
Social media isn’t for everyone (and it can sometimes be a big of a downer) but if you and your partner are comfortable sharing pieces of your lives, then tag her in a photo or post and flood your feed with how happy you two are. This is a public (but personal) way to share how much the relationship means to you.
4. Pull her in for a kiss when you’re in the middle of crowd, dancefloor, or event.
In the middle of the craziness, in the midst of your everyday lives, be intentional about paying attention to her. Even if this is just a simple kiss, it shows the world that even when things are busy, you’re still focused on her.
5. Bring her along to a family dinner or get-together.
Your family is blood—you’re very close with them. Show her how much you value her by bringing her around your family or introducing her to a sibling or parent.
6. Invite her out with your friends.
Showing her off and letting her meet your friends is a way to show her you’re truly serious. You wouldn’t bring someone around you had no intentions to keep.
7. Absentmindedly give her small displays of affection.
If you see she’s stressed, if you’re waiting in line, if there’s a quiet moment where you can make it known you’re thinking about her—do so. Massage her shoulders, rub her back, give her a hug; it’s the little things cthat mean the most.
8. Acknowledge her when she speaks.
In a world plagued by over-use of technology, make sure to give her full eye contact when she speaks. Not only will this tell her that you’re focused, but it will show the world that she’s a priority to you.
9. Do something for her without prompting.
You can show the world you love her by doing something for her without being asked. Maybe that’s opening her car door, helping her carry groceries, buying her drink when you’re getting a refill—big or little, these actions are tangible representations of your love.
10. Randomly compliment her.
When you’re out with a group of people, make it a point to say something kind or whisper a sweet nothing in her ear. This will show her that no matter what’s going on or where you are, she is yours.
