I have obseseved many a times that whenever we are meeting anyone for the first time or when we are with people whome we meet rarly, We tend to be very courteous and well behaved, but when we are with people we love and with whome we live we tend to be casual and even forget to thank them when they do something for us.. we take them for guaranteed.. Do you agree with this and if yes why is it so?

Well your observation is very correct. We do tend to lose courtesy with the people we know for a long time. But then again it is a good thing cause if say you were to pull the chair for a girl on first ten dates it is very nice and caring on ur part but if you do that everytime for ur 2 year long girlfriend having dinner at ur home, it would would not only be tiring for you but a embarrasing for her too

Yes, I truly agree with this. This is because you never say thank you and you doesn't be courteous to yourself. And when you become close with him/her you will feel that he/she is also a part of your life. And moreover, you feel hurted when they get wounded, this is because of this.

Well yeah, but sometimes it's not always a bad thing. I would prefer people I know well to be more casual and frank with me as opposed to feeling like they have to walk on eggshells with me, and I have a different dynamic with different people, and it changes depending on the person. It's not a bad thing - it just shows that two people are comfortable with each other, and can be more real with each other without having to put on an image.
