Take Part in Shared Activities
If you want to have a deeper emotional connection with your partner, don’t forget to take part in all sorts of daily activities frequently with him/her. These activities can also provide a great opportunity for you to have a conversation. For example, you can have dinner together, travel together on weekends or holidays, and experience small life events together. These seemingly trivial activities will allow you to share your feelings with each other and have more understanding of each other.
Support Him/Her in Hard Times
As the saying goes, “In a time of adversity, true love is found.” So if you want to connect emotionally with your partner, you need to be firmly supportive during his/her difficult times. When facing difficulties and challenges, a person is often vulnerable, and at this time, he/she may not be as strong as usual. If you tell him/her at this point that you are always there for him/her, he/she will be more grateful to you and the emotional connection between you two will naturally become stronger. Those who have been through difficult time usually enjoy more strong bond.
Listen to His/Her Stories
Another way is to listen to the other person’s story and learn as much as possible about what he/she has experienced before. By doing so, you will better empathize with your partner and gain a deeper and better understanding of his/her emotional states. At the same time, your partner will think you are a good listener. For example, you can ask your partner to tell you something interesting about his/her childhood, or troublesome stuff that happens during work, or even just some family trivia. When listening, make sure that you keep quiet, stay focused, and try to put yourself in his/her shoes, which helps you emotionally connect with your partner.
