Babies have only one way to communicate when they are newborn, and all other forms of making their needs known are something they learn as time goes on. For those who have just begun to date, it can feel like they are in the same situation. They might not particularly need anything, but their inability to even tell their partner that might be difficult. Taking a look at thoughtfulness will help people to understand that it is not always easy for either person to let their current date know things.
Being a thoughtful person is an internal mechanism that allows people to look at the world without judgment. They are not necessarily seeking anything, but they want to know what is going on so they can act on it correctly. When it comes to dating, this outlook on the world in general can help them talk to the other person. It can also give them the ability to understand what their partner needs so they can do what is necessary for the other person to feel comfortable.
