Ironically the reason why many relationships last is the same reason many fail. Communication. Being able to express your needs and wants, while also hearing what your partner desires and then acting on it can be a challenge for any couple. It’s important for your partner and you to communicate freely with no hesitation and it’s better to talk about things you want your partner to know rather than keeping it from them. Here are 6 ways to help improve the communication flow in your relationship:
1-Spend More Time Together Daily:
It means make time for your partner and put aside other things you want to do. People want to feel important and this is the one simple step to show your partner how important He is for you. Watching TV does not count as spending time. Going out on a date night is one of the popular ones, you have time to talk about your week or ask your partner to support you on some situations you may need help( emotionally or financially) .
2- Understand Your Partner:
In any communication between two people it’s important to let your partner know that you respect his opinion. Never use words like “Always” “never” and … . Relationships are 50-50 You cannot blame your partner for everything and likewise . Be open to his opinion and let your partner talk .
3- Don’t Assume:
Assumption is the killer of communication, Don’t make assumptions especially in a serious relationships. Having conclusions without discussing it with your partner is one big mistake. You never know what was in your partner’s mind unless you have a brief talk about it.
Honesty is an important key in communications and relationships. Be honest and straightforward; Speak your mind and let your partner know what is going on. It’s better to discuss everything before making any decisions rather than having problems later because you didn’t say exactly what you wanted!
5- Touch Each Other:
Use your hands and your eyes, make direct eye contact and touch each other during your talk, Don’t forget you are partners and you both want to find the best solutions. Smile and don’t be so serious about things.
6- Don’t use Electronic Devices:
Never Ever text or Email your partner to discuss things that are important for you. Face to face communications are the best, use a private room and sit with your partner to talk. Using cellphones and internet just put you in some situations which you don’t have control over it, If you are seeking for answers to your problems it’s better do it face to face
