1) Attentive listening, empathy and respect and understanding for different ways and feelings.

2) Get to know your partner's needs as intimately as your own.

3) Love is about nurturing, rather than coercion or control. The only person's behavior you can control is your own.

4) The purpose of a relationship is to support and help each other self-actualize.

5) Loving couples do have conflicts. The trick is getting through them without damaging the relationship. Sometimes, you just have to edit yourself and say, "Yes, dear," especially when it's for the good of the relationship.
