I just want to let you know that I and her have built a loving relationship based on patience, understanding and humour. As an Australian male, I appreciate that English does not come easy for her so I have taught myself to never get impatient.
This allows us to communicate well. She puts a lot of effort into building our relationship and I often tell her how much I appreciate this and appreciate her as a loving and caring human being.
I always listen to what she wants to say and make sure that any of my comments and jokes are never directed at her. I always tell her that I love her as this is so important to her, and we send each other messages each morning wishing each other an enjoyable day.
Every bit of effort that I have invested is remembered and reciprocated. This approach has enabled her to develop a loving respect for me and this has made both me and her very happy.
