Puppy love dating game
That way your partner will not want to block you out as they will be genuinely interested in what you have to say.
The best way to reduce fear of abandonment, loss or rejection is to make sure that your sense of self comes from within and not from your partner.
Each couple has their own idea of good behaviour be it flowers or completing chores around the house or helping get the children ready for school, whatever it is make sure your other half adds value to the partnership before you reward them.
Likewise, let your partner learn the hard way, sometimes he needs to get bitten to learn not to dip his toe in to the fire.
Every dog owner knows that feeling when their puppy is off the lead and running towards a squirrel or worse still a busy road and our instinct is to run towards them.
However the experienced dog owner knows that catching their dog's attention then running the other way is far more likely to get your puppy to start chasing you.
There is always someone else who will fall in love with that cute face and then your partner can become their problem not yours.Puppies are taught early on they have to earn respect and rewards by good behaviour.Using the same logic, if you give your other half everything they want without them earning it, they will never learn how to regulate their wants and desires and therefore, they will never learn how to appreciate you.With a puppy you very soon realise they do not know how to regulate their eating, playtime hours or even their behaviour towards other dogs.Just as you wouldn't put a whole bag of dog food out and allow a puppy to decide how much to eat or not, don't offer your partner everything on a plate.
