*forwards to husband lol

such sweet things to show love. it's like after ppl get married they just stop doing these things but why? we should always make an effort, it ends up benefiting the marriage and everyone wants to feel they are loved!! esp women always need to feel reassured.

as for leaving the door open, that is kinda gross. i noticed the british have a thing about doors. like they all have to be closed at all times! it's like living in rabbits dens! i don't think americans even build doors (except to the bathroom of course and front door!)

I'm with the british on this thing. In Indian culture people just walk in, most of the time even without knocking, like it's their house! If you shut the front door, you're considered ill mannered, insensitive, disrespectful and inconsiderate. I hate that! I love to have all the doors closed. Perhaps it's the effect of british schooling Wink

Also whatever happened to bringing home some flowers every now and then?!? Oh ok I see it on the list. I forever try to get my brothers to just pick something up while shopping and they're always like 'what's the point, they're just going to die anyway!'  Huh? Undecided

Br Akhan it's so cold in the UK, you need to close doors to keep rooms warm.

But regardless, doors, close them.

It doesn't get that cold here but still doors are meant to be closed. You don't get to simply waltz in into anyone's house.
