7. Stay Curious

First off, you should strive to do this with every person you come into contact with.

Everyone has something to teach us, regardless of whether they say it outright or not.

I actually learned this from watching an ex of mine talk to strangers.

He would always figure out what they liked to do and ask specific questions about that.

They loved to expand on their area of expertise with him.

Every time a person left a conversation with him, they felt valued and interesting.2

Your significant other has a lot to teach you.3

Whether itโ€™s his career or a just a hobby, ask questions to help you understand the things that are important to him.

The best partners make us learners for a lifetime.

@karen, Me too! I love that book
@lilhez, I completely agree!
Just do your own thing and don't be all clingy. My boyfriends ex played a ton of mind games and was controlling and manipulative. I lay everything out on the table and he and I are partners above all else. That's what love is.

Not argue and be an obsessive bitch ..
I'm really on the fence with this post...being a woman is about being true to yourself no matter if you are in a relationship or not. When in a relationship always be true. If you begin doing things that you saw on a list, then get comfortable and stop - you're bf will wonder what happened to that woman he knew. When you truly find "the one" the caring moments will come often and easily. And, each of you will appreciate each other for the contributions that are made. Sorry for the long post, but I don't agree with trying to "trick" someone and "stand out from the crowd". When you find your girl/guy please trust that you won't have to compete to stand out. You will already be the shining star!! ;)
