If they acted assiduous they wouldn’t wonder why people acted so rudetowards them. I had a questioned mailed into me:“Why do men not act assiduous anymore? Itʼs not like girls donʼt like kind things done tothem.”This is a great question. Guys think that women want to be independent so they don’tdo that many things for them anymore, unless they are a true gentlemen. If you havebeen dating someone for a long time, you should tell them that you want them to openthe car door for you or pull out your chair for you. If he truly loves you he’ll do these littlethings for you.

  16. 16. Research Paper Love 16 When people act peevish I think that it is one of the most childish things that aperson could do. Why should they sweat the little stuff? If you just let it all go your lifewill just go so much smoother. I got a question mailed into me this week and I want to share it with my readers:“When Iʼm at work people always try and get their way. Though when it doesnʼt go theirway, even over the littlest thing they have a major freak out. Why is that” That is a really good question. People want everything their way or the highway.If it can’t be theirs they will never really be happy. When that happens again this is whatyou should do:Try and combine your ideas with their so they won’t get all freaked out over the littlestdetails.
