Late Bloomer: This Valentine's Day, Give the Gift that Blooms - (Retail: $17.99)
Just like that, it's almost here, Valentine’s Day! While many are looking forward to it, such as rappers Saweetie and her long time beau Quavo, others…not so much. Relationships have no doubt been tested during the COVID-19 pandemic, but love is still very much in the air. Some of you maybe wondering, "Well, how can I tell if she still loves me? or What can I get for a new girlfriend?" You're in luck, Slotsource.com have teamed up with leading body language experts to reveal the tell-tale signs that your partner really does loves you this Valentines Day!
Maintaining Eye Contact
Someone who is in love with you will gaze deep into your eyes, unable to break the eye contact - whether they know they're doing it or not - when you are talking about something that is important to you.
A good indicator to see if someone loves you, is if their entire focus is on you and remain fully engaged with you in conversation because they genuinely like to hear you chat away.
Touch is a good indicator of love. Look to see if they pull your leg over theirs - or vice versa - when watching a film or notice to see if they hold your hand on the regular.
Playing With Their Hair
In the bedroom, Women will often play with their hair to show their neck, and display their wrists unconsciously to display their most vulnerable arteries to show their trust in you.
Guys on the other hand might flex muscle groups unconsciously like shoulders, chest and arms to demonstrate strength to be able to protect you.
Notice How they Look at You
It would be impractical to always look at each other seductively when you're in it for the long run and living together. But, it is important that it does still happen often, look out for them scanning your face, looking at each eye and then down to your mouth, occasionally pout slightly when they want to kiss you.
So don't get yourself down, "This new normal we are still adapting to has impacted our relationships in unprecedented ways. The high-pressure environment of isolation, combined with financial, social, and political stress has led to a rise in conflict within our close relationships..." says relationship coach, Allison Kelly Jones. To top it all off, once you're sure your partner is still very much invested in you and only you this Valentine's Day, here are a few items we believe are sure to keep her happy and your relationship thriving, pandemic or not. Happy shopping!
