Take The Time To Thank Your Significant Other

When I first started dating my now boyfriend, I thought I didn’t like him. Our second date was particularly troublesome. First, we had planned to go apple picking, but then we found out it was out of season. So instead we decided to go miniature golfing. While we were playing, I wasn’t that interested in him.
