There engineered very busy and your lives and it take ovaries forget to do well at each other so I'm a fan and you know I think marriages it's as if to make everyday. And I wrote the book he knew that encourage people to keep keep putting it together. Are you a married lady I am an area they yes well you married. I'm approaching a decade would fade ninety at actually read a book club he's just not your type that the skeptics that any would not like us and let him like I. Well there's a saying that opposites attract. And I think that's for the first marriage. That just like theory. And then for the second when you choose somebody that's loaded more like Q is there any data on that any any researchers say just my own messed up philosophy. We have not. Earlier relationships. And knew we made different choices later by I would expect her bill once it learned then and never looked. Buy it actually I think opposites attract is people look at opposite. He's been very few professional. And public. If your values line you're not quite opposite so I think as we get older and relationships as we involved. We line in not just and romantic relationships and friendships with people who reflector valleys that are. The and is there for a long time and I've been divorced for a couple years now in and having time to reflect you know sitting in the house with no furniture. Oh yeah and just the dog but I have had time to reflect and I can look back conceal lot of mistakes that I made but. That's in retrospect that's not in real time so. Heidi he'd he'd.

Which is acknowledgment. Eighty people wanna be seen heard values that that it works in your work relationships in your friendship tenure love relationships and acknowledgment goes so far. And number one I've done a lot of research time and infidelity. As well people men and to complain that they weren't getting enough approval at home and women tend to complain that weren't getting enough attention. That both through it you know both of those things point to acknowledgment. We we need to do. That reinforce our appreciation for each other and we forget to do that we put it together for granted the longer we've been together X. I think part of that is did to go through. What it takes to for example of somebody once to come home and tell you about. Their day in and that might be something that you structural wall rehash it gives you feel as though. You know we did and it's over I don't know relive it again but that's very important at them so I guess shift to fall back on the fact. That you love them to give yourself the patience to sit there and. Is. Listening is really important thing. A little late to get this dynasty that. As a party years. DP deter it is like it when it comes to do you know that's a partnership you're meeting in the middle. You're hearing each other years attempting to each other's needs and wants as much as tanning need to communicate that. You can't expect to partner intensity until one that's a big mistake people make. But I I might generally world is if that really matters to what you can matters. So you know it is happening is at high value to your partner. In matters. Yeah that would go to break at the willow but I'm just thinking about erode romantic and a non romantic and romantic. Did you know does the whole thing with. Flowers and and moderate and I ended her planned and all that stuff. And it's just been me in the dog entry for a couple of years forgive me right romance any. Our opponent is did her romance say I want a telling. You in your diet. Let me tell ya plans are gonna take a ride in the car. And in the park with the dog park that's the plan so.

Reminding them on the matter to you can't believe how many people and injured you know over the years. The deal TV things in other either you know they think that the things went about their deathbed. Or it was definitely and they and it would say hold this personal acquisition meant to me do it now.

A fallen in love and maybe everybody's gonna be mr. ms. perfect in India judging them objectively. I think apparently content to meet new people but yet you don't want you know with about a couple in the you know what ignited a French restaurant demonstrate that has complete expert Valentine's Day. But if he'd go to view. Your local wine buyer whatever. You'll do a lot of people out there are just for science and enjoyed and I mean.

So you're you're Tony now you're going to be forty. And this is going to be the only person you'll be whipped or. A date or anything like that and then when you get to forty yet another forty years on that stretch so. Our addictions that but is that. Is is due to some people not quite real lines of what.

It's very different beads falling in line that we we are bringing actually metal into the different date equipment for numbered years called attachment. And that's what we have to work a little harder to keep that spark alive when you. That being said I was gonna ask you you can't I mean it's not realistic to think when you first meet somebody it is puppy dogs and rainbows and it's fresh in new and everything they say is so funny and so witty and so charming and maybe a couple of years later those of the things a drive yup the street and mall.
