Communication problems are something that happen in every single relationship. I know that the Better Half and I have our fair share of communication problems, but that doesn't mean there aren't ways that you can work them out. If you're in love and are having a ton of communication problems, don't worry, I've got the top 7 ways you can work out your problems with communication!
1. Realize Your Relationship Has a Problem
The first step to repairing any communication problems in your relationship is actually realizing that your relationship has a problem. Trust me, it is hard to admit it in the beginning, but once you do, you'll feel so much better. So, how do you communicate with your Better Half? Does the communication flow free? Think about it!
2. Talk a Lot
One of the biggest barriers that people experience when they are dealing with communication problems is the fact that they don't talk. When they do talk, they typically fight. So ladies, if you want to work our your problems with communication, you have to talk them out and actually coordinate some time to have a conversation with your boyfriend!
3. Try a Different Approach
So nagging and yelling hasn't worked right? Well, why not try a different approach? Trust me, it'll work better and you could always just see if your boyfriend responses in a different way. For me, the best approach is keeping my attitude and my anger in check.
4. Seek Help
Just because you are in a relationship and you are happy doesn't mean that your communication is the best in the world. If you are having communication problems that don't seem to be getting better, it might be time to seek some professional help. Just because you head to therapy doesn't mean that you are horrible and aren't right for one another, it just means that you need some help to work on your relationship.
5. Do Not Talk over Each Other
The biggest thing that I had to learn when I first got into a relationship was not talking over my Better Half. If you're having communication problems, it's probably because you aren't listening to one another. Take a couple seconds out and really open your ears, instead of trying to get your point across.
6. Do Not Get Angry
Just because you aren't communicating the best, doesn't mean that you have to get frustrated. Instead, keep your anger in check and I can problem that it'll be that much better for your relationship and you won't have nearly as many fights.
7. Keep Calm
Finally ladies, make sure that no matter what, you stay calm. Blowing up just because of something that your man says isn't the way to get his attention, or the way to get your point across. Instead, just make sure that you stay calm, cool and collected. Also listen to him. Remember that tip from above? Do it, just listen and you'll be surprised by how much of a difference that makes!
Communication problems are common in most relationships, but they shouldn't be horrible. Sometimes, you'll find that you just don't understand your partner, but at that point, you should ask questions, really try to understand what they are feeling and how you can help. So ladies, what communication problems have you had in the past?
