There’s a way we think about relationships that is a problem, quite frankly.  This way of thinking seems to make sense when you’re first dating, but I find that many of us never shift out of it. 

I’m talking about a “consumer” approach to a relationship. 

Consumerism encourages a me-first attitude.  People don’t want to be in a relationship where they are always giving and don’t get anything back.  And I would encourage this thinking to shift even when dating.  That’ll help you avoid the trap of only thinking about what you can get out of a relationship, instead of what you can give.
