2. Sporadic. Hands down...very important. It adds the element of surprise to the relationship! My wife loves it when I randomly come home and we go out to dinner...or pack up the car on Friday after work and drive to destination unknown...or bring home flowers on a Wednesday just because....or taking her to get a massage just because. It'* those things that mean the most to her.
Wow! I like how you summed it up and I agree with Jim W as well. You guys are amazing!

1) My baby is definatly my best friend.. actually one of the few friends I actually have.. and I don't think our relationship would be the same if we weren't best friends.

2) One day she needed some work to be done.. and I told her I couldn't help, but I suprised her, by working on her.

Oh yeah, and my baby = my car

harofreak: I totally see how you "screwed over friends" in the process of a relationship. I did that too, and got too wrapped up in her, and forgot about the other people in my life. There is being friends, and being obsessive, which I have learned the difference the hard way.

It is very important to maintain other friendships in your life as well but your partner should be your best friend but not your only friend.

I have to agree, It would be a long boring life if didnt have a large base for your relationship. However, When i was dating "less seriously" (before the wife) i tried to make it a point to let my girl be an equal friend, thus-- sometimes i hung out with other people on a friday night, etc.
a- she feels included
b- Friends don't feel dissed (this is important, cause eventually you will need a few groomsmen )

as my relationship with my last girlfriend (who is now my wife) progressed the 'group dating' so to speak phased out and she is definetly now my best friend, i would rather hang out with her on the weekend than any of my other friends.

2. As for the suprises, i tend to shoot for the little stuff, like.... helping out around the house (we both work) everyonce in a while i get off early and make her a fancy dinner. (most our stuff needs to be done on the cheap )

Your friends won't understand until they get their own significant other. . . it'* kind of a rule.---don't be too discouraged

1. You have to be VERY close friends. Like it or not, your significant other will see your faults, as it'* a given that you will spend a lot of time with them. It'* nice to have someone who accepts you for who you are and who'* easy to talk to.

2. Best surprise I've ever given someone: I drove 6 hours one way (actually, 8, after I got lost a coupla times ) just to see someone. Best surprise someone has done for me: boyfriend and I had been fighting a LOT, due to stress and lots of it. I came down with the stomach flu, had to stay home from work and cancel dinner plans with him. He showed up anyway, freshly shaven, in a suit and tie, with REALLY good chicken and a bouquet of flowers. He apologized for all the fighting, said he hoped we could work things out, and had a peaceful, candlelit dinner with me in my jammies with messed up hair. He even kissed me while I had cold breath

Long distance relationships tend to suck,..cuz it'* so hard to be away from the one you love for long periods of time. In our case we live by the phone, and text messaging. She is the most patient, understanding, and loyal woman I have ever known, who sees me entirely thru rose colored glasses. She stood by me thru a very difficult time in my life, when many a person wouldn't have. It'* easy to tell someone you love them, but when they stand beside you, do their best to show you, and love you completely, now that'* awesome. There'* nothing I can't tell her, or visa versa!

I don't always get to show my appreciation, or to do the romantic things I'd like to because we are miles apart,..but one day,...miles WILL NOT seperate. I love you!
