As with all loving relationships, it has to be mutually beneficial.

  1. Know why they want you, and deliver.
  2. Know why you want them, and receive.
  3. Communicate well and often. You both need to do your share of telling, listening, and responding.
  4. Always make up, never walk away mad.
  5. Satisfy them … and be satisfied by them.

Once you satisfy them, they are going to want more. That’s when you know you’re in a loving relationship.  Works with people, too.  Just sayin’.
