Remember when you first started dating someone they called it the “honeymoon stage” because everything was the sweetest gesture. Saying you were lonely or bored the response would be I miss you or I wish this or that. But once you become comfortable all the little cute shit comes to an end. The way I see it is if you wanna keep the relationship worth it and exciting keep the little things. You don’t need to buy anything for them just show your attraction by doing little things you know they appreciate. Or at least plan little dates that are effortless and inexpensive.

Fun fact: Canada launched the “Don’t Be That Guy” rape prevention campaign targeted at potential rapists rather than potential victims was launched… and the number of reported sexual assaults fell by 10 per cent. within that year. Rape prevention NEEDS to start with education and focus on the perpetrators, not just policing the behavior of potential victims.
