Excuse the cheesy Hallmark card tone of voice here, but when you're in a relationship with someone you really care about, it makes you better. It's not about impressing someone or showing off anymore. When you get down to it, your significant other can make you a better person — and they should
Take me for example. Before I met my husband, I had never been in any truly successful relationships. So you can imagine how bringing someone else into my life rocked my way of thinking.
