You’re in love, so you want to do anything you can to make your partner happy.
Trust me, I have been there. You’ve opened up your heart, and you’re excited to have a deep connection with this person who seems so great for you.
You find yourself being selflessly available to your partner 24/7, no matter what you already have planned.
When you’re in love, the only thing that matters is being with this person.
Once I remember skipping a class because my boyfriend wanted to go out to lunch.
I told him I was available and happy to join him. I didn’t consider my own obligations and priorities when he wanted to do something.
Maybe you see yourself in this scenario — willing to do most anything to spend time with your partner or win his or her affection and attention.
However, as time progresses, you realize that you are not getting the same time and attention you offer your partner.
You don’t see much effort coming from the other side that demonstrates your partner feels the same way that you do.
