Oh, Lisa, I would consider this as a BIG thing, not a little show of love:

"When my boyfriend takes 2 hours out of his day to drive my car to the tire shop, and he sits there while fresh, new tires are put on my car, and makes my world a safer, more secure one, that is a powerful show of love."

Dan would never do that for me unless I begged and begged and he'd resent it the entire time. He'd take that resentment out on me in other ways over time.
