Things aren't what they seem, particularly not in your tricky, difficult love relationship. On the surface it seems as if your sweetie has the upper hand. Your lover is stingy with affection and attention, leaving you begging for whatever meager amount you get.
Meanwhile, you sit and stew over what you imagine your mate's up to when you're not around to watchdog. But if you could look into your lover's soul, you'd see a far different picture. In reality it's you who's in control, you who holds the reins, you who has your lover bewitched. It's just that your lover is better than you at playing it cool.The key to moving past this rough spot? Stop demanding what you feel is your due, and start treating your sweetie as you'd like to be treated yourself -- with kindness and generosity of spirit. Stop expecting attention and affection; start giving it instead. Given a boost of confidence, your mate will stop feeling as if control is slipping away, and will cease trying to get you in an emotional headlock. Your vicious circle will be transformed into a tender and sweet clinch. And isn't that what you really want in the end?
