How To: Physical Touch

If your spouses love language is Physical Touch here are some suggestions:

-As you walk around places, hold your spouses hand, ie the grocery store, the mall, the hardware store, etc.
-Go up to your spouse and give them a long sincere hug, let them know you love them, resist the temptation to head to the bedroom, they need to know you can give physical touch without it always leading to the bedroom.
-When your spouse is relaxing, go up to them and give them a shoulder massage to help relieve tension.
-Hold your spouses hand during prayer.
-Initiate sex by first giving your spouse a foot rub or back massage, then move to other areas as long as it brings pleasure to your spouse.
-Take a bath together.
-When taking a drive together (just the two of you) reach over and rub their leg, stomach, arm, be extra affectionate, but be aware that they are still driving so you don't want to distracte them too much.
-When family or friends are over touch your spouse in their presence, give them a hug, hold their hand.  This allows your spouse to realize that affection is not in private, there is appropriate public affection.  It is good for your children to see this as an example of how an affectionate relationship is.
-When your spouse arrives home meet them with a hug or a kiss or both.  Let them know they are the most important thing to you.  If you generally meet them at the door anyways, meet them in the driveway, go a step further if you can.
-When you have a quick minute, take your spouse into a quiet place, the bedroom, the closet, etc and give them a passionate kiss.  This shows them that affection does not always lead to the bedroom, but this can definitly get the fires started for later.
-When your spouse is cooking, or standing there, go up behind them and put your arms around them and tell them you think they are amazing.
-Go to a beautiful look out in town at night time and make out, just like the good old days before you were married.

These are just a few suggestions, trial and error works best with this, just think of ways to show them you love them through physical touch.
