little things

As I drove Don, May's boyfriend home last night after dinner, it occurred to me that relationships are created by, and sustained by, largely little things.

These little things, added up over time, create trust that allow a relationship to exist and flourish. They're an emotional deposit into the relationship bank. They're things like making an effort to remember your partner's partner's birthday, helping a friend move, or folding laundry together.

I think if a relationship is going to work, you need to mind the little things. It's all to easy to focus on the big, exciting dates and such, but you may miss out on the simple bonding opportunity that the little things offer.
