If you want to have a good relationship, here are a few unspoken rules you should follow:
Rule #1: Let the other person know where you are and what you are doing. This has nothing to do with control issues, but it’s just common courtesy. You have no idea if the other person is planning something special or waiting for you in order to do something, and your not telling them what you are doing could ruin that plan. If there is going to be a change in your daily routine or you’re going to be somewhere else than where you said you’d be, let the other person know. It can save A LOT of misunderstandings and questions.
Rule #2: Start and end the day off right. It’s as simple as a good morning kiss and a good night snuggle! You should never be in such a hurry to jump out of bed that you fail to wish the most important person in your life a good morning. Your evening activities should never be so all-consuming that you can’t spend a few minutes with that special someone before you go to bed. Start and end the day with that person!
Rule #3: Keep your compliments specific and concise. Saying, “I love you” just isn’t enough to keep a relationship alive. You’re going to need to give specific compliments, telling the other person exactly what you love about them and why. But if you want the compliments to sound sincere, you can’t drone on and on about the way you feel or what you think. Keep your compliments concise, and make sure that they mention something specific about her. It’s those “sound bites” that she will carry around all day long!
