If you want to know how to treat your significant other, observe how they treat you.
Does this apply for all types of relationships? No it doesn’t. For me there are four types of relationships: Abusive, dependent, similar and complimentary. This works for similar and complimentary relationships¹.
If you want to know how, to treat you significant other, observe how they treat you.
People treat others from their perspective; how they understand it should be done. It therefore makes sense to take note on how your partner treats you. It will give you some insight in how he or she perceives the world or a relationship. This includes subtle behaviours like the way they greet you or even how they kiss.
¹ In a future post I will explain why I believe “complimentary relationships” are the way to go.
