Giving and receiving attention

Giving and receiving attention are the most important and basic emotional needs we have as human beings. These particular needs are part of - and underpin - the meaning of every human interaction.

The quality and quantity of attention is what can really make or break a relationship - not just what happens on Valentine's Day.

How do you ensure that your relationship remains fresh, rewarding, loving and sustaining? Visit my page on the secrets of happy relationships (see links further down).

Perhaps you've been unhappy for a while, maybe you've found out that your partner is cheating on you and/or you can feel that they are slowly withdrawing from you.

Take action now - don't leave the survival of your relationship or marriage to chance. Have a look at Save The Marriage/Relationship for help and advice on getting your life together back on track.
