As our relationships go along, we often talk less and less to the person we love. Our communication isn’t what it used to be, and it’s sad that this can sometimes be the demise for most couples. As cliche as it may sound, communication is important. Even asking just a few simple questions can make a stronger relationship.
A Stronger Relationship Can Be The Result Of Purposeful Communication
We don’t often place a huge importance on talking to our partner because, most likely, we feel complacent. When we have been in a relationship for some time, it’s easy to just overlook the other person because we know that they’ll be around. No, this isn’t how it’s done. If we want to connect and reconnect with the person we’re dating or in a relationship with, we need to talk. Let’ start with these questions:
1. What’s the best and worst memory you have as a child?
Talking about one’s childhood is a good way to allow your partner to understand the experiences that shaped you. you can take turns answering this questions so you have a deeper understanding of why you and your partner are the way you are.
2. Who do you think has the best relationship among our friends and family? Why?
It’s sometimes difficult to put into words what one needs in a relationship. For example, if you ask your partner, “What do you need from me?” He or she may have a hard time answering. But, if you ask about what your partner admires in other relationships, that would give you a good idea of his or her needs.
3. What behaviors do you think I should change?
This is a good question to ask. Normally we don’t ask this often, but we should start doing so. This question is like checking in with our partner about what we should change to make the relationship better.
No matter how long you’ve been with your partner, you will surely learn a new thing about him or her with these questions. A stronger relationship is reachable as long as you do things with and to your partner with a purpose in mind. For more relationship tips, read other posts on the blog.
