- Your partner surprises you with presents when you least expect it.
- You learn to believe that your partner is the only person that can make you really feel better about yourself, and when she’s being nice to you, you really feel good about yourself and your abilities.
- Your lovemaking is sometimes sweet, tender and wonderful.
- Your partner occasionally apologizes for being hurtful or demanding, but the pattern doesn’t seem to change.
