It can brighten their day- If all they have seen are straight or sour faced people all day they will immediately see the change in your facial expression and react differently to it.
It's welcoming- Other facial expressions can give your partner the signal that you don't want to see or talk to them- but a smile encourages them to approach you for a kiss, a cuddle or a chat.
It makes them feel special and appreciated- If they know the sight of them makes you smile it's an ego boost- every partner needs reassurance that they still make their lover happy and this takes no time at all to show them they do.
It shows a positivity- If you smile at your partner and they've had a bad day- maybe your positive non-verbal cues will bring them some comfort or send some of your positive vibes their way.
Smiling encourages conversation- So if you do it when you get in from work- it should result in you and your partner having a good chat about your day.
Smiling is contagious- If you smile, your partner should smile back and if they don't you know that something is very wrong and they need a listening ear.
Smiling releases endorphins- Smiling can help you manage stress and anxiety- so if you are calm- your relaxed state should filter through to them if they're feeling stressed or anxious.
It's attractive- A smile is more attractive than a frown so it's a cheap and free way to show your partner how beautiful you are.
