Hmm... good question. I think it depends on who my partner is. If my guy has an aptitude and the stamina to strive to be his best, then I am "easy" to please. If I know he's half-assing in the relationship, makes empty gestures, and I feel like I'm at the bottom of his priority list, then no, the things he'd do to impress me wouldn't work. In a relationship like that, I wouldn't be happy with him as a person, so some things he would try to do for me wouldn't impress me. If I'm unsatisfied with him, then I'd be unsatisfied with his gestures too.
