“Love Is Profound Interest
Do you remember how you behaved when you were first falling in love? In all likelihood, you listened intently to what your partner had to say, found something magical in the most mundane biographical details, missed each other, and were eager to be together whenever you were apart. You probably went out of your way not only to listen to this new person in your life but also to do things to make that person happy—anything from very grand, romantic gestures to small acts of consideration, and you in turn received similar gestures with gratitude. If you’re like most people, and you’ve been together for a while, chances are your way of interacting has changed considerably, and you’re less thoughtful, less focused on your beloved, and less appreciative. You have the power to change this and recreate some of what it was like during the early stages of the relationship. And in reality, it doesn’t take an enormous effort to do so.”
