They say that we often say i love you to the ones we love, for like so many times, especially those who are very much new in a relationship. But how often do you say thank you to your husbands, wives, Gf, Bf, etcm. I mean they would definitely feel appreciated.

we thank each other constantly, for all the small and big things. we're both big on thank you's and letting each other know that we appreciate one another, for all the small and tiny things. when i'm frustrated, she'll always tell me "thank you for being patient" (i am the most impatient person alive!) it's the real, genuine little "thank you's" like that that i appreciate most. :)

I say it all the time. It's a habit. When my fiance does something for me, I'll thank him. It doesn't really matter whether it's my fiance, or my parents, my friends, or something; if someone does something nice for me, I'll thank them for doing this.

My husband is very much against ‘sorry’ and ‘thank you’. Though initially I used to feel awkward…you know I have been brought up to always say those two words wherever applicable, his reasoning is that for very loved and near ones, there should never be any necessity to either by apologetic for any action or be thankful for anything. In a way this does make sense…I mean if you really love somebody very much, you would not do anything deliberately to hurt that person and if you did anything unknowingly, your loved one will understand and forgive you without asking for any forgiveness.

hi ivygrey, I love to tell my boyfriend that I love him everyday. He also do same with me.Before he sign out to our chat, he never forget to say that he loves me and I never forget to tell him same thing. It is also same whenever he will call me on phone. We never forget to tell such wonderful words everytime we have an opportunity to talk with each other. Well, I thank him everytime he will do me a favor just like helping me with my problems may it be in family, friends or other matters. I never forget to say thank you whenever he will also help me to troubleshoot some problems in my computer. I say thank you everytime he will give me compliments. He is doing exactly same thing with me. And sometimes, we have our problems and misunderstanding. Most of the time, it is because of my childish nature. Despite of my weaknesses, he still have a very long patience for me and not fight with me or asking me for a break. I thank him so much for being patient with me that maybe if not of his matured personality, we might not last this long. I thank him for loving me everytime we pass a very difficult time in our relationship.

I say thank you all the time, every time I am done a favor. There are even times I say thank you just because I remembered something good about my partner. It's really easy to find a reason to thank someone. Sometimes, you don't even need a reason to.
