Be Attentive to Each Other's Needs
On Saturday night, I set the alarm for 6 a.m. because I wanted to prepare for an exam I am taking soon. The alarm went off, but I was in such a deep sleep, I did not notice. Rueben noticed but didn't wake me up. Later when I woke up, I told him if anything like that happens again, to definitely make an effort to rouse me out of my slumber. This morning, he woke me up before the alarm even sounded. I really appreciated that he was attentive to my needs. Also, I recently asked him to surprise me with a sexual advance when I least expected it. He really delivered on this need too. Being attentive to the needs of your partner can really help to strengthen your bond.
