    Very Important

    In any relationship, communication is really important. It's better to talk out your problems, tell each other what's wrong, then to keep everything bottled up. If there isn't any communication, there will eventually be resentment. It's awesome to be able to talk to someone...

    The way we interpret things

    and communicate either makes or breaks a relationship. If something doesn't feel right despite having tried expressing it before, why not talking it out instead of just concluding negative things because our ego is more dear than the actual value of the relationship with one...

    Vital. If you can tell each other everything

    when times are good. You need to be able to do the same when times are not so. Even if you can't find a way through it, at least honesty is still there.

    I really believe the reason all these

    friendships and relationships fail these days so much is because of lack of communication or not communicating properly. It's an art that isn't practiced they way it use to be, and it definitely shows.

    It's really all about communication.

    And remember: Don't raise your voice, improve your argument.

    It really is. And it's

    so simple to achieve this. If communication is poor or lacking, then one person is always going to feel hurt or not understood, while the other person will probably feel overwhelmed or even annoyed. Sometimes it's as simple as making a point to share a joke that you know the...

    My boyfriend is throwing a fit

    because he hasn't seen me in 2 days. 2 DAYS. Not 2 weeks, not 2 months - 2 days. I find it wholly ridiculous. He said 'because I didn't make time for him, he's not going to make time for me.' That he's just 'balancing' the relationship. He said that I didn't make an effort to...

    Good communication is vital in anything

    especially marriage. When my wife and I got married we made it a top priority to always keep in touch with each other. When we are separated doing something by yourself we let the other know what we are doing. We also let each other know where we are. I f we can't talk we text...

    Food For Thought.

    Most definitely, if there is no communication

    what is there. To share openly. More than just communication how about without judgement but with acceptance. It's ok to not agree.

    Totally believe this.

    Once it starts to fail you need to get it back pretty damn quick or the relationship is doomed! When you reach the stage where you can no longer be bothered it's over.

    The single biggest problem in communication is

    I think good communication is a must.

    When my wife and I got married we made an agreement with each other. We always let each other know where we are going. If we are going to be late we tell one another. We also respect each other's privacy. We do not hide anything from each other. This avoids any problems a couple...

    it's always nice to be reminded of it. When you truly love someone, be loving in words and deeds every single day. Don't beat around the bush. Be straightforward. If you appreciate someone today, tell them. If you adore someone today, show them. Hearts are often confused and...
