    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...

    I love him to death,

    but he is the kind of person who shows little affection. I am a very emotionally driven, outwardly affectionate person, so alot of the times it feels like giving without receiving. He tells me that's just not who he is, so I take it or leave it... but shouldn't he care how I...

    Oral.

    Communication is so vital to relationships, a lack of communication always seems to lurk in unhappy marriages and any form of poor interpersonal relationship. Sometimes solving a problem can start with just talking about it even if the end result seems a long way away.

    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.

    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...

    No matter how sure you are of someone's love,

    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...

    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...

    Two Ears...one Mouth.

    The most hurtful thing my ex husband would say to me was.. "Talking to you makes my head hurt." What he really meant was... I don't want to hear anything you have to say. My ideas, solutions, anything... So I didn't talk. Or share. Nothing. He still did... A lot. I listened...

    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.
