- Enthusiastic: "That's wonderful you deserve it!
- Less-than-enthusiastic: "Hmmmm that's nice."
- Uninterested: "Did you see the score of the Yankees game?
- And negative: "It's not much of a raise." Gable says the only "correct" reaction is the first one - to be enthusiastic. This response is linked to intimacy, satisfaction, trust and continued commitment-- Why? It seems that basking in good news increases happiness because the person feels good every time they remember the event. This is true for both men and women, and applies to all couples, whether they're dating or married, and whether the event is big or small. If a partner doesn't respond enthusiastically, the person doesn't feel as good about their success, and they feel less understood, validated and cared for. So the next time your mate comes home and tells you they won the lottery, try to look happy - OK?
