This is an Encore Presentation, this podcast originally aired in November of 2017. 

Hello and welcome to The Couples Expert Podcast with your host Stuart Fensterheim. This week Stuart is lightening things up with a podcast on how humor and positivity can create an attitude and purpose in your relationship that will transform your lives.

Gratitude and appreciation are key ingredients in a loving relationship. Ways of showing love are showing appreciation, sharing your feelings, making your partner feel special and making them feel important. Small changes in behavior such as showing affection, a simple hug and kiss makes a huge difference. You can’t compel someone to do this; it has to come from the heart. We can ask for what we need and when our partner gives it to us, we need to recognize that as a huge step forward from what your relationship dynamic might have been in the past.

What you’ll learn from today’s podcast:

  • Ways to show gratitude to your partner  7:09
  • Courting behavior and what it does for you as a couple 19:05
  • Learning the love language in multi-media 20:10
