Tracking ´points´

Do you keep track of things you do for your partner, and then wait to see if your partner properly pays you back? Relationships shouldn´t be about you and your partner owing each other, or about one doing exactly the same amount as the other. It should be about two strong, self-sufficient people who gladly do things for each other because they want to.

If you´ve fallen into the habit of counting things you do for your partner, and feel shortchanged, it might be time to sit down and talk about how to get back to a more open, sharing relationship.
