30 Days Of Love: Smooch Your Sweetie Happy

Love: Relationship Advice With Showing Affection

Have you told (or shown!) your partner how much you care today?

Affection comes in lots of different forms, and while some folks may yearn for kisses, others sweet nothings and still others big bear hugs, one thing's for sure: Couples in relationships need lots of lovin'! In a new video for YourTango's 30 Days Of Love, relationship expert Charles J. Orlando gives us the lowdown on how to keep your honey happy — and it's as easy as giving him or her a big squeeze.

If you've ever had a bad day, only to be completely uplifted by a hug from your partner, you know what we're talking about. That's the power of affection. And the good news is that you don't have to make big, sweeping gestures to relay your passion (although every once in a while, that's nice, too): Often, it's the little things that mean the most.

Check out the video to hear Charles talk about just how easy it is to show affection for your partner. What's your favorite way to give (and receive!) love? Leave a comment below.
