????You must have been troubled by when to say“I love you”because it is one of the greatest puzzles in our life.What if you say it first and your partner doesn’t love you back? Or if they do say it but you don’t feel they mean it?Being the first to declare your love can be nervous and risky and can leave you feeling as vulnerable as a turtle with no shell. But is the person who says it first really in a position of weakness?Doesn’t it pay to hold back, play it cool and wait until the other half has shown their hand fast?“Areally good relationship should be about being fair and being equal,” says psychologist Sidney Crown. “But love is seldom equal.” All relationships go through power struggles but, he says, if a love imbalance continues for years, the trouble will setin.“That feeling of‘I’ve always loved you more’may be subverted(破坏) foratime, but it never goes away completely and it often emerges in quarreling.” In love, at least, the silent, with holding type is not always the most powerful. “The strongest one in a relationship is often the person who feels confident enough to talk about their feelings,” says educational psychologist Ingrid Collins. Psychos exual the rapist Paula Hall agrees， “The one with the upper hand is often the person who takes the initiative. Infact, the person who says ‘I love you’ first may also be the one who says ‘I’m bored with you’ first.” Hall believes that much depends on how “I love you” is said and the motivation of the person saying it.“Is it said when they’re drunk? Is it said before their partner sets off on holiday, and what it really means is ‘Please don’t be unfaithful to me’?By saying ‘I love you’, they are really saying ‘Do you love me?’ If so, wouldn’t it just be more honest to say that?” Collins agrees that intention is everything.“It’s not what is said, but how it’s said. What it comes down to is the sincerity of the speaker.”What is the main idea of this passage?????

??Television has changed the lifestyle. of people in every industrialized country in the world. In the United States, where sociologists have studied the effects, some interesting observations have been made.Television, although not essential, has become an important part of most people’s lives. It alters people’s ways of seeing the world; in many ways, it supports and sustains(维持) modern life.Television has become a babysitter, an introducer of conversations, the major trans mitter of culture and a keeper of tradition. Yet when what can be seen on TV in one day is critically analyzed, it become sevident that television is not a teacher but a sustainer; the poor quality of programming does not elevate(提高) people into greater under standing, but rather main tains and encourages the life as it exists.The primary reason for the lack of quality in American television is related to both the history of TV programming development and the economics of TV. Television in America began with the radio. Radio companies and their sponsors first experimented with television. Therefore, the close relationship which the advertisers had with radio programs became the system for American TV. Sponsors not only paid money for time with in programs, but many actually produced the programs. Thus, in American society, television is primarily concerned with reflecting and attracting society rather than experimenting with new ideas. Advertisers want to attract the large stviewing audience possible. To do sore quires that the programs be enter taining rather than educational, attractive rather than challenging.Television in America today remains, to a large extent, with the same organization and standards as it had thirty years ago. The hope for further development and true achievement toward improving society will require a change in the entire system.According to the author, American television is poor in quality because_________.??
A.advertisers are interested in experimenting with new ideas
B.it is still at an early stage of development, compared with the radio
C.the programs have to be developed partly for economic reasons
D.it is controlled by radio companies
