As a parent, it can be difficult to maintain a strong relationship with our significant other. Moms especially are juggling so many different responsibilities and roles, that it can be tempting to put our romantic relationships on autopilot.
We worry about taking care of the kids, and taking care of our work duties, and taking care of the household responsibilities that it can be difficult to find the time to do something romantic or sweet for our partners.
But making a deeper connection with our significant other doesn’t have to take tons of time or energy. Sometimes all it takes is a thoughtful text message to build your relationship with your significant other and let them know you’re thinking of them.
If you find yourself short on the creative energy, and you don’t know what to say, we’re here to give you a little help.
Show Gratitude with a Relationship Building Text
Showing appreciation for what our partners do for us is one of the best ways to build up your relationship. Our partners do a lot for us each day, and it can get easy to take it for granted.
Send them a text to show appreciation for the work they do outside of the house. That can look something like, “Thank you for working hard to support us. I know work can be stressful, but I appreciate all you do for our family.”
You can also send them a text showing appreciation for work they do at home, “I saw you took the trash out this morning. Thank you! I appreciate you doing that.” Or “Thank you for helping the kids with their homework yesterday. I appreciate the effort you put in to help them be successful.”
Showing appreciation for jobs and tasks your partner does, can help strengthen your relationship with them.
Love You For Who You Are
One of the best ways to strengthen your relationship with your significant other is to remind them (and yourself) what you love about them individually.
These are very personal messages, so you’ll most likely have to come up with one yourself. I’m happy to give you a list of examples and maybe it will spark an idea for you.
“Thank you for being excited about the holidays. I love your enthusiasm about life.”
“Thank you for listening to my anxieties yesterday. You’re the best listener.”
“I love that you have an interest in technology. I’m always learning interesting facts from you.”
Heartfelt messages like these are a guarantee to brighten anyone’s day.
Grateful for Our Life Together
Sometimes it’s nice to remind our significant others how grateful we are for the life we’ve built with them. These can strengthen your relationship by showcasing how strong you are together as a couple. Some examples of these messages would be:
“Remember our crappy apartment we lived in when we were first married? I’m so grateful we made it through that time together.”
“Remember three years ago when I broke my foot? Thanks again for driving me to all those physical therapy appointments. I’m so grateful I had you to help me during that rough time, and I’m grateful we’re both healthy now.”
Everyone wants to connect on a deeper level with the people they love most. I hope these relationship building text messages ideas help you and your significant other keep connected and focused on the good in each other.
