Meaningful Gestures: How to show your partner you care

Posted on

Valentine’s Day may be over, but we are continuing our exploration of relationships and love throughout the month. Today, watch Family Institute staff therapist Alexandra Solomon, PhD, discuss how couples can show one another that they care on the Oprah Network’s #OWNSHOW.

From her interview:

“I think that couples can get really constrained when they imagine that romance or expressions of love have to look a certain way — that they have to look the way that other people define romance or define love. And so it’s good for couples to play with what feels good for them — what feels meaningful to them — and to remember that the intention is for me to communicate to you that I’m grateful you’re in my life.”
