When you've forgotten how to see what you once loved, all that's left are the faults. If they break small promises, you are on fair warning as to bigger ones. Love is generally preferable to hatred, unless you have a Twitter feed. There are two types of people who will let you down in relationships: (1) those currently living; and (2) everyone else. For the best intimate relationships, really listening to your partner is a must. Having them actually present is also preferable. Never act like you know what it is like in someone else's relationship. Unless you are in it, I guess. You know what, never mind. The secret to keeping your partner happy is to always remember anniversaries and not to mess with the thermostat in their car, but mostly the second one.
