In a similar way, if you touch someone in a specific way when they are feeling sad, for example, you squeeze their shoulder or put an arm around them at a funeral, touching them later inrepparttar same way will reawaken those feelings of sadness. So be careful about what sorts of emotions you are associating to your touch, words or face.

How does this apply to gifts?

A gift is by its nature an anchor. Every timerepparttar 126078 recipient looks atrepparttar 126079 gift, they will rememberrepparttar 126080 occasion when they received it, especially if they experienced strong emotions atrepparttar 126081 time.

So you can help guarantee that your gift will be a strong ongoing anchor if you make sure that you create a truly memorable experience Ė such as an extremely romantic evening - when you presentrepparttar 126082 gift.

A woman will always remember following a trail of rose petals in her loverís apartment to findrepparttar 126083 necklace he purchased for her birthday.

A man will always remember being presented with his own personal star by a lover dressed only in a star-patterned bra and g-string. Itís also important to considerrepparttar 126084 opposite effect.

Never give a gift by way of apology. You donít want to create negative anchors by giving gifts after an argument.

If you give your wife a diamond ring to apologize forrepparttar 126085 fact that she caught you cheating with your secretary,repparttar 126086 ring will always remind her of your infidelity.

If you give your husband a new watch to apologize for crashing his BMW, heíll remember your transgression every time he checksrepparttar 126087 time.

Even if those memories don't make it to conscious awareness, they're lurking just underrepparttar 126088 surface. It makes better sense to allow them to fade away, instead of attaching them to physical objects like gifts. Keep things simple. A genuine apology is all thatís required after an argument. Save gifts for positive occasions.
