So how to survive this?
Girls, boys! You got this one.
Yes, make a pancake for her/him in the morning, which you do not usually do. A nice tea perhaps prepared before starting to work, whisper something nice to her ears as you wake up( even though you are not a morning person and you are grumpy ), or let her use the bathroom first, wash up the leftover dishes from last night.
Maybe a flower delivery once in a while would not hurt either. Let him play on his Xbox (without you making nasty comments), or a nice random massage. Not to mention a good hug or sudden kiss (studies shown that a 6 seconds kiss every day frees happy hormones that may just turn both of your day to a better one).
In many ways this is a unique situation for both of you, but remember – if you can make it through together – it will only strengthen and enhance your relationship.
The key is to take care of each other. This need to be done consciously. Pay attention to one another.
Look out for signs from your partner, consider them, and don’t forget – what goes around comes around.
