How can I learn to give my partner what he needs when our way of giving and receiving love are different? Our views on intimacy differ. Please help!! "Elle Mae"
Dear Elle Mae,
You bring up a great question! I talk a lot about this dynamic in It's That Simple! for men and for women because it is such a common trap for most couples. The first step is coming to an understanding of how you personally feel and express love. The second step is doing the same for your partner. It is discovering how your partner feels and expresses his love. Once you have this vital information, you will be able to express your love in a way that your partner understands and feels it best in your relationship.
