Update Notifications: Stop Clicking Ignore

Stop ignoring your spouse

Here is a follow-up on Fantastic Friends

We get updates on a regular basis. They are reactions, notifications, feedback or signals on how we are doing in our relationships. They are sometimes verbal and non-verbal, pleasing or non-pleasing, but they sure come every now and then.

When they come, we have a choice. To click Ignore, Remind Me Later or Update.


When she tells you she is not comfortable with your circle of friends.

You clicked Ignore.
