Dating can be difficult to navigate. If you’ve been single for a while and are used to going through life like a lone wolf, it can be hard to put another person’s needs before your own. And even if you’ve been in a relationship for a while, it’s easy to get into a routine and stop doing the small things that made your girlfriend fall in love with you in the first place.
