These five little words can make everything so much better!
At first glance, it may be foolish to reduce the key to successful relationships into just 5 simple words. I’d be inclined to agree with you, but trust me, if you just remember these 5 simple words, you’re greatly improving your chances of being in a happy relationship. There is no surefire way to guarantee the success of any relationship. There are just too many variables at play.
