It may not seem like it but small details go a long way! For example, putting up a picture on your BindiDates
profile and saying a few lines about yourself can really influence your online presence & dating experience.
The same applies to love and friendship. Although we shouldn't sweat the small stuff, we should also acknowledge the small gestures and random acts of kindness of our friends and loved ones that can make such a huge impact on our relationship with them. This is especially so when you're dating or just starting out in a new relationship.
It's nice to do the fancy dinners and get the flowers but that's just the gloss. Ultimately, what makes the relationship are the thoughtful gestures – the little details.
The same book which asks you not to sweat the small stuff gives you 100 suggestions of things/ideas (and they're not elaborate schemes…just small things really) which you can implement in your life that make you a more caring and loving person (and lead to enriched and rewarding relationships!)
Some of these suggestions include:
• Making peace with Imperfection
• Developing your compassion
• Not interrupting others or Finishing their sentences
• Becoming a Better Listener
• Become an Early Riser
• Stop Blaming Others
• Practice Random Acts of Kindness
There are 93 other suggestions in this book that if practiced could well change your life for the better. But like all things truly valuable, it takes work, practice and discipline to achieve anything worthwhile.
And a loving relationship is worth all that, right? 🙂
