What is a relationship?
What you normally hear on this subject is a lot of hocus pocus nonsense about giving and taking and compromise. This is not actionable or definable. And therefore... useless. The truth is, it isn't complicated.
A great relationship = Making her expect to be treated the way you will treat her, and her treat you the way you expect to be treated.
In simpler terms you have to keep in mind four action items:
- How she expects to be treated
- How you expect to be treated
- How you treat her
- How she treats you
Set expectations appropriately on both sides, and treat each other in a way that meets those expectations and you are good.
