Successful couples understand the importance of this: they respond positively to those moments and develop a pattern of showing regular interest. Unhappy couples ignore each other. That in turn becomes a fatal habit.

I hear time and time again it’s all about communication, listening, being considerate/compassionate to the little AND the big things (listening & being considerate when your partner is telling a really boring story), and overall being consistent which is the most difficult trait. Being consistent is hard for EVERYONE but in a relationship it really has an impact.
