Love is an interesting topic and everyones view on it is quite different I would imagine. Having said that, I'm interested to know what you guys think the "do's" and "don'ts" are for a person who loves you. List as many as you like. A couple of "do's" for me would be: 1) Does support your dreams 2) Does atleast attempto see your point of view on things.

Do be yourself, Do communicate with me, Do say what's on your mind. Don't try to be who I want you to be, Don't hold things in, Don't assume you know how I will react to any situation. The biggest DO for me is DO be honest with me.

I agree with all of these - but especially the don't try to be who I want you to be as I think a lot of people tend to try to do that - consciously or unconsciously.

Do stand by me on the decision I make even if you may not feel the same way. Do catch me when I fall and not say I told you so Do tell me that you love me Do not expect everything to go perfect in our relationship because we are human and we make mistakes Do not leave me in the dark when something is bothering you Do not just hear me, Listen to me 7

Do tell each other everything. Don't lie. Do tell him if your feelings change. Trust me.

Do genuinely love me Do hug me Do touch me Do kiss me Do talk to me Do tell me I look great Do show me off to people Do support my endeavors Do support my dreams Do thank me when I'm doing stuff for you Do spend time with me Do appreciate the gifts I give you Don't lie to me Don't be a pretender Don't cheat on me Don't insult me Don't tell me nothing is wrong, I'm no fool Don't confuse me for common trash, I'm much more than everyone thinks Don't lose my gifts, they are not common trash either Don't see me as a walking wallet Don't see me as a partygirl retirement plan In return I'm willing to do the same for you

My do's and don'ts: Do's: 1. Do express your love as often as you like. 2. Do respect your partner. 3. Do communicate with each other. 4. Do pay attention to your partner's needs. 5. Do spend quality time with each other. Don'ts: 1. Don't take your partner for granted. 2. Don't harbor resentment. 3. Don't keep any kind of feelings from your partner. 4.

Yes Love is an interesting topic always as its lovely always even we succeed in it or even if we didnt.I dont know particularly about the DO but about Donts i would like to suggest that 1)Dont take everything as granted in the early stages itself. 2)Dont involve in the acts which hurts her. 3)Dont be away from the lover for a long time.

Do tell me you love me every day Do let me see what you're feeling, i want to help you if you're down Do share your worries with me, how can i help if i dont know what's bothering you? Do make time to spend with me Do let me share the responsibility sometimes, I need to feel wanted Do make a fuss about it when i achieve something special to me Do tell me your proud of me, I need to know that what im doing makes you feel good too. Dont tell me that nothing is wrong, im not stupid Dont constantly try to jump in on things im doing, its irritating. If I want help I'll ask for it. Dont tell me I wont understand, I wont if you dont talk to me. Dont keep anger bottled up, let it go, lifes too short for it. Don't keep showing off at me, im proud of you yes but rubbing it in hurts... a lot Dont tell me i wouldnt have gotten where I am without you, how would you know? Dont go to bed angry with me, it'll just simmer that way and blow up again later. Dont ignore my opinions or belittle them, my viewpoint is as valid as your own. Those are the ones i can think of offhand lol, if I think of anymore I'll come and add them later. This is a great discussion!

the things that you should do for the person that you love are: 1. Trust on him/her 2. Find better communication with your partner since you and your partner came from different world 3. Accept the trully self of your partner 4. Be honest each other The things that you should don't for the person that you love are: 1. Don't try to fix/repairing/improving your partner 2. Don't try to make them as like as your own self 3. Don't keep assuming everything based on your own thought coz your partner is different with your self

...Both responses above are great! I'd like to define dreaming. I need to have my own dreams. Not ones dictated to me. ...Do tell me how special I am to you. I will often tell you the same. ...Don't try to "fix" everything for me. I like to fix my own problems. If I need help, I'll ask. ...Do hold me when I am worried. There is a lot going on in my life. I have to go through it. Having you there beside me, letting my know you love me is all I need to get through it. ...Don't hide something from me because you think I will worry. I need to know what is going on in your life. I will be able to sense if something isn't right, so better to tell me about it. ...There are many more do's and don'ts. I'm so glad my new man and I have already been throug some of these. We are able to talk about some really difficult topics. We are not quick to judge, we seek out all the facts before we respond. ...This is a great thread. I may return with more later. Thank you for asking. Peace be with you. =(^;^)= Della
