There are a few pretty common communication habits that can damage your relationship in the long term;

of course, that's only if you allow them to do so.

Communication is the key to every good relationship, so you should always pay attention to this aspect, even if you think that you are doing nothing wrong.3

These simple communication patterns can destroy your relationship;3

they can decrease your intimacy and your closeness.

Just like George Bernard Shaw said, β€œThe single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” If you lose your temper and things degenerate into a fight, then at least fight in a more constructive way and solve your problems instead of enhancing them.

Here are a few very common communication habits that a lot of us tend to use on autopilot and that can really sabotage our relationship and our happiness in the long term:

1. Rolling Your Eyes when Your Partner is Talking to You

I think that this is one of the most common communication habits that can damage your relationship.

We all do it when we lose our temper, we just can’t help it.

Well, if you want to improve your relationship and increase its satisfaction and your intimacy, then you should break this bad habit and replace it with something more constructive.

This behavior will not offer you the solution to your problems;

it will only make things worse, so try to avoid doing it as much as possible.

I think another bad habit would be Not Trusting eachother. Always accusing eachother and not being understanding.

Sometimes walking out of the room helps diffuse the situation. 5 minutes alone time, and one of us is almost always ready to apologize :)

Hello all, I am a producer for Steve Harvey the daytime talk show. We have a cool segment coming up and we are looking for: I am looking for a vivacious couple who recently moved in together or is about to move in together. Do you want him to lose his posters? Do you hate her floral couches? Does he want a man cave but she wants a home office? IF you have style differences, I want to talk to you! If interested, please email me at jessica.smedick@steveharveytv.com
