I read a comment from a relationship article that I thought was interesting. Mr A was asking for advice on how to keep a relationship to which Mr B replied that in order for a partner to choose you, you must provide something of value. If all you can come up with is "I'm Nice" to the question "Why should someone choose you?" then there's your problem.
He then advised Mr A to travel, workout or learn a new skill that could add value to someone else's life.
Mr B is right; relationship is about selling yourself. Can we say we add value to someone else's life when we entertain ourselves excessively? Can we say we add value to someone else's life when we spend most of our time at work?
It's not enough to hangout with somebody and just hope for the best. As I once heard, "Love is a verb - it's something that you do". There needs to be something that's shared that can benefit both party. Can you sing? Can you cook? Can you talk about that funny thing that happened to you when you visited your grand-mother?
Are you prepared to make one of the biggest sales of your life?
