Why can't people pursuing a committed relationship just trust each other and bring their best?
Why is it that two people who like each other enough to want to spend time and even fall in love, always find themselves in defense mode?
We act as though expressing sentiment or vulnerability will make us appear weak.
Why is that?
I asked James as much.
I said, "Couples should try to outdo one another, but not in a negative way. "
I think that instead of trying to show the other person how little you can care about them, you should try to show how much you care!
Couples should spend their time trying to make their partner feel loved.
"Let's see who can make the other feel the most love! Let's compete that way!"
James said he thought that I had an excellent idea!
