THANKS FOR LETTING ME BE THE FLOWER
The theory goes that in order for a relationship to work, it needs a flower and a gardener. The flower needs to be nurtured and tended to and requires plenty of attention/water in order to flourish. The gardener, on the other hand is far more adaptive and sees its primary role as caring for the flower. The gardener waters the flower and are inclined to put in the work required to maintain it. Of course, this goes both ways, because everybody really wants to be the damn flower.
