Mementos can be worthwhile methods of bonding over something that matters truly to the two of you. It might be you decide to wear promise rings, or you present one another a family heirloom that means something to you, explaining and exploring its history together. You may decide for an important and long-lasting souvenier from the place you first met, or perhaps saving an item that brought you together in the first place. Mementos always steward a strong emotional appeal, and ensuring they exist in your relationship can be a necessary step to emotional connection.
In order to truly bond with a person, you need to show them who you truly are. Despite our intent, we are all products of our past. Exploring memories with our loved one can help them gain necessary context into who we are. You may not need to share traumas right away of course, but showing your formative years, your most cherish memories and locations or familial relations that mean something to you can help you bond with your lover in more ways than one, and gain some insight into who this person you love really is past everything they’ve shown you.
Opening up can help you gift your best presence to the person in front of you. It allows you both to connect over a story, to find commonalities, or to feel completely unguarded around that person. The most beautiful thing a couple can do is trust each other, and take on one another’s burden in the interest of mutual health and love all round. Without this, a relationship can become stale and never truly honest.
With these simple and beautiful methods of connecting with your true love, you can ensure your beautiful relationship is strong, perhaps forever.
