While it’s important to remember not to push or rush a connection, there are several ways you can feel closer to your partner without pushing things. Believe it or not, there are a few tips for nurturing a new love or closeness that can bring you closer in ways you may never have experienced before.

Spend time together

Whether you are planning a weekly night out or spending the night together, always make time to be together. And when you have a good time together, let things unfold naturally and give your partner your undivided attention. “Spend time watching a movie together instead of checking your phone or email”.


You need to communicate your wants, desires. Remember this is nonverbal as well as verbal. There are ways to communicate something without saying a word. That hand jesture. That facial expression. That look with the eyes. Even rolling of the eyes. All are communication, and are perceived different ways.

Don’t let your partner control your budget

When you are making your own money, have a job, and make a living, you have the right to spend your money on what you want and need. Your partner should have their budget. Do not fully support anyone, as your partner is not completely powerless and can also make money. Your finances are yours. If you want, you can share some of it with your partner.


You need to be honest with each other. You both need to be ready to hear the good and the bad from what the other sees and does.

Follow with promise

If someone can trust you, they will likely become more comfortable as the relationship progresses. Trust is a big part of the reasons why relationships move forward or break down,” When you show that you are trustworthy and can be there when you need to, your partner will feel that extra closeness and confirmation.

Neither do they have to be big gestures or displays of confidence, but simply constant respect for your mutual obligations, which may seem small at the moment, but add to a much bigger and stronger relationship.

Do A Small Act Of Kindness

Little gestures that make your partner's life easier show how much you care. "Whether it's packing your [significant other] a lunch before they rush out to a crazy-hectic day of work, or stopping by the mall to pick up a ... phone case for your [partner] to save [them] a trip. These are the kinds of non-verbal actions which show you are deeply invested in this relationship, and seeking active ways to make your partner's life better.

What's great about this particular method is that it really is the smaller gestures that count; even something like asking if you can pick them up dinner on the way home or making a quick call to help them schedule an appointment is a nice reminder that there's someone in their corner, paying attention to their day-to-day needs.
