Affection is one of those basic needs of a woman that require both quantity and quality.
If there is anything you would want a man to give you more of, it would be affection. It is even more valuable than money because you can always make money by the boatload, but affection only comes when he puts the time and effort into it.
Is liking the same as loving? Are the two words synonymous?
Affection keeps the physical side of a loving relationship going because it can be done almost anywhere and anytime, unlike sex.
Most men do not understand that we women need affection. Lots of it.
