Everyone has a different way of feeling and embracing love. This is something we all need to truly comprehend when hoping to have a long-term, healthy, and happy love life. Everyone is different, and we all feel and show love differently. There are some ways that people show love which might work incredibly well for some, but others, not so much. Sometimes it's hard to differentiate whether or not someone truly loves you because of how they act.
Perhaps a certain type of love works for you, and you feel as though your partner isn't making you feel loved. What's important to remember in a situation like that is that maybe your partner actually does truly love you, but perhaps they're not loving you the way that you want to be loved. It's important to sit down with your partner and have a conversation about this when and if you ever feel as though your partner doesn't love you, even when they claim to. If you're feeling unloved, it's important to communicate your feelings to your partner in a calm and loving manner, as opposed to bickering or acting bitter, because that could lead to arguments, and the problem likely won't get resolved. Let your partner know how you're feeling, and explain to them that people feel love in different ways.
When I was younger, there were times that I felt my partner didn't love me, but now that I understand this concept, I've come to terms and realize that I was wrong. My partner actually did love me in the best way that he knew how. He loved me the way that he felt capable of, and in the way he felt that I wanted to be loved. In many ways, he was wrong in that regard. The conversation wasn't discussed back then. Apparently, neither of us at the time had come to this realization, nor did we understand that this was a main route to some unhappiness.
It's important to find out how your partner wants to be loved and what works for them. In the same manner, it's important for your partner to find out how you feel and embrace love the best, and what works for you. Someone shouldn't assume that because showing a certain type of love or affection to someone from their past worked out, that it will automatically work for you or anyone else. Again, it's important to remember that everyone is different and everyone feels and embraces love differently.
There are many different ways of showing a person love. For some, it might be affection. For others, it might be things like romance, sharing common interests, listening to them, being supportive, or many other ways as well. It's important to find out what you can do so that your partner will embrace your love, and vice versa. This doesn't have to be a weird subject discussed by you and your partner. So don't make it out to be weird. Simply, be very casual about it when you discuss this with your partner. But, it might not have to be discussed if you're both feeling loved. This is more so a way of helping those couples out that need a little assistance in this area, and specifically to those that feel unloved by their partner.
