I agree with all of these. Especially # 3! So many people want to lay into them and start ranting about their crappy work day and problems (both men and women do this) and people have their own problems. I'm not saying you can't ever talk to your partner, but to keep the problems and complaining to a minimum. People want to be around happy people.

Good points!


IMO- # 6 should be: Treat them as you believe THEY wish to be treated...


Just because you like receiving flowers, doesn't mean that gesture will mean anything to them, for example.


Know your partner, and what's important to them...And make sure they know what's important to you, so they can do the same for you...
