Relationships are a two way street, you scratch my back and i scratch yours. It cannot be a give and take kind of situation. we are together for a reason and so we both have a role to play, it's not only about the boy, the girl also needs to be taken care of. Commending each other is something that has to be done both ways. that is how i feel, because if i am going to take care of my boyfriend, then who is going to take care of me? You have not married me yet, so as i respect you, care for you and so on i expect you to do the same for me that is how two people grow together in love. I believe we should do for each other what the other would want to be done for. We are in this relationship for the same reason, so my reasoning would be what you want or expect from you will get so long as it does not put me in a compromising situation, and that should also apply to you.
