Things weren't what they seemed, particularly not in your tricky, difficult love relationship. On the surface it seemed as if your sweetie had the upper hand. Your lover was stingy with affection and attention, leaving you begging for whatever meager amount you could get.
Meanwhile, you sat and stewed over what you imagined your mate was up to when you were not around to watchdog. But if you could have looked into your lover's soul, you'd have seen a far different picture. In reality, it was you who was in control, you who held the reins, you who had your lover bewitched. It's just that your lover was better than you at playing it cool.The key to moving past the rough spot? You needed to stop demanding what you felt was your due, and start treating your sweetie as you would have liked to be treated yourself -- with kindness and generosity of spirit. You had to stop expecting attention and affection; and start giving it instead. Given a boost of confidence, your mate would have stopped feeling as if control was slipping away, and would have ceased trying to get you in an emotional headlock. Your vicious circle would have been transformed into a tender and sweet clinch. And wasn't that what you wanted?
