The secret to a happy marriage could be in making an effort with the small things. According to new research, small gestures topped the list of things that make people feel loved. Respondents agreed that gestures such as snuggling with someone was more loving than someone simply saying ‘I love you’, researchers found. Over-the-top romantic gestures don’t make people feel loved. Also, controlling behaviours – such as, someone wanting to know there they were at all times- were seen as a quick way to lose a relationship.
The Top 4 Loving Gestures:
-Someone showing compassion when you’re having a hard time.
-Being snuggled up to you
-Pets being happy to see you.
-someone sincerely saying “I love you”
