Self-confidence is sexy.
Maybe distance does make the heart grow fonder.
Give your partner nothing but the best of yourself, what you make for them and what you give to them.
There’s nothing wrong with a good cocktail or glass of wine with your lover.
Boost your partner’s confidence.
Gaze lovingly at your partner even when you know too much about them, especially because you know too much about them.
Travel and have adventures together, especially in Paris.
