The Art Of Communication
Communication is the key to every successful relationship. Your ability to connect with your partner verbally or non-verbally (body language) can show whether your relationship has the potential of moving forward, or if it's headed for disaster.
Here's how to prevent such a negative outcome from happening:
- Talk. Make it a goal to talk with your partner. And I'm not just talking about "small talk". I want you to have deep, meaningful conversations with one another. Ask questions about the future of your relationship- and if there's anything that they feel you can do on your part to make the relationship better. Express to him/her what you like and dislike about your relationship. Always keep an open line of communication.
- Monitor Affection and Attention. Are you giving enough affection and attention to your partner? Do you hold hands, hold each other, kiss in public, or anything else you feel would not really matter in your relationship? Is there anything you would like your partner to do more of? Do you make it you business to give a nice amount of attention to your partner? Now is the time for you to think about those things, communicate, and make changes. Be sure to monitor the non-verbal part of your relationship. It plays a huge role.
