LOL! Oddly my wife does exactly
that on occasion.
I do agree in principle that a lack
of romantic attention would be made worse if it was seen as an imbalance
of attention instead, if one thinks of it as a limited resource similar to water.
(IE: It is not that there is NO romantic attention available, but partner A has not available to them because its all being used up by Partner B)
. . . . . . . .. Actually, after typing that, I see strong parallels in how most people tend to treat the time/energy/etc invested between partners as a limited resource. hmmm.
