What will do you to keep your relationship happy. They say that one way to keep it is to always appreciate him whatever he did to you. Then what if you don't really appreciate it, do you have to fake even you if don't really or what?

not only appreciation makes the relationship happy, honesty is also a key part of it. You don't have to fake anything, you need to be transparent with your partner for the relationship to work.

yup, appreciation and honesty is just one of those. Then what would you do if he did something but doesn't really like it or agree with it but he make so much effort for it.

hi mac, i am sure that being honest will be more appreciated. and who knows, maybe that by being honest, something that she/he does could be corrected, hence a happy ending? ann

faking it is very annoying and hard to accept especially when it was done often, but being honest in such a way that it would not be very obvious to surrounding people is better than faking it.

hi there, actually it's not "faking" but you just have to do it like it's just the way it is. It is similar to the argument of "pretending" and "being professional" in front of the people around you inspite of not liking them. When you are mad about something you won't simply blow out though you would want to. You don't pretend that it's ok but simply you have to show that you can hold your temper. This is also to show how matured you with your dealings. Going back to relationship, even if you don't realy like it appreciate it but don't say that it's good when it's actually not. Appreciation must be followed by honesty so there will be harmony. Say "thank you" and make suggestions for your partner to improve the little things that he has. Hope this helped! Goodluck!
