Relationship Minute: Use better words

People often use the same handful of adjectives to describe their partner: funny, smart, cute.

Today, take a minute to go deeper and come up with better, more specific qualities that you cherish about your partner.

Here are some examples:

  • Ambitious
  • Authentic
  • Compassionate
  • Dynamic
  • Generous
  • Nurturing
  • Perceptive
  • Reliable
  • Supportive
  • Thoughtful
  • Understanding

What other positive traits do they have?

For each quality, note one recent occasion when they displayed it. And then share with them.
