I'm a lucky gal!

And, I know it!

Sweet article- thanks for sharing.

intresting tho

sociopaths also do all the above, they are skilled manipulators very charming go all out for you find out whats important to you feeds this then one day out of the blue, nasty or you catch them cheating lies or other things

Soooooo very true. I totally

Soooooo very true. I totally agree with you. For 6 years I was with a person like that. We are broken up, and even it's still fresh and hard I know one day I will be okay.

if they don't, why call them

if they don't, why call them 'lover's'?

Hailey . I just agree...

Hailey . I just agree... George `s blurb is astonishing, yesterday I got a great Ford Focus after earning $4235 this - four weeks past and-even more than, 10 grand last-month . this is definitely the most financially rewarding Ive ever done . I actually started 5 months ago and almost straight away began to earn over $83, per hour . have a peek at this web-site http://tr.im/4zzsy

My partner does all of the above

And we do love and appreciate each other very much. Our relationship is not perfect and we do need to work hard. Nevertheless, I feel very blessed to have him in my life. Thank you for the article.

Nope she doesn't love me.

Nope she doesn't love me.

I agree with another who

I agree with another who suggests sociopaths do this, I guess going with your gut feeling is the better way to go than a set of behaviors.

Another pitfall is the fact that somebody who is ill(physically or mentally), grieving or has some other commitment may stop doing these things or have days where they do not. Maybe it is the way I read that article but I feel it is suggesting if your lover does not do these things daily that they do not love you which is a very selfish way of looking at things.

This was a great article, one

This was a great article, one of the better ones I've read on Psychology Today. And I'm a happy and lucky girl to say my husband does all of those things for me...even though he picks at me and likes to push my buttons, I know his love for me is oceans deep.

My only question, though, is how would a strong feminist and a man with pre 1970s views really get along? I totally agree with the message, even my husband and I have differing views on certain topics, but we respect each other enough to know we're all different. But I can't see how a marriage would work with someone being for women's rights, while the guy beside her pats her hand and says, "Yes, I can see where you're coming from, but my personal views are women belong at home because I really love having a hot meal waiting for me and seeing you in your nicest evening dress at the end of the day." How could a feminist fall in love with someone like that?

If i gave her a good reason

If i gave her a good reason not to trust me, can I still count the lack of it as evidence that she doesn't love me?

The main problem with lists

The main problem with lists like this is that some people might go through the list like a shopping list and see one small flaw or lacking in one item and then use that as a conformation and justification, rather then see it all on a sliding scale. It would be very rare for both parties to genuinely score a perfect 11 on this test.

Or is that the cynic in me?

100 % true

thanks so much for sharing this wonderful information

Her excuse is yhat she ddoesn't have to show love with affection that she show it with support. O have never believe her. I need yo know if is true.
