In fact, the meeting of those four emotional needs consistently seemed to define a romantic relationship.But if the needs of men and women are so different, why are couples who are not yet in love successful in meeting each others emotional needs while dating?While I was a college professor, I studied the psychology of romantic love.I was curious to know what it was, what created it, and what destroyed it.But I noticed something very peculiar about the couples ranking of these ten categories.Men tended to rank them one way, while women tended to rank them the opposite way.My next step was to determine which of these needs when fulfilled made them the happiest. So, I changed the question to ask, Rank the following ten ways that your spouse could make you happy with 1 being the most and 10 being the least.I also gave them an opportunity to add to the list anything else that their spouse could do for them.
