Communication while dating
Without this skill, a person is handicapped in an intimate relationship.
Without being able to express themselves and listen to another, partners cannot achieve intimacy.
Rule #1 to follow when going into a conversation with your partner: unilaterally disarm. You are not going into a battle that you have to win.
This is not to say that you are will have to compromise or capitulate.
This conversation is not a battleground where you must prove that you are right; it is not a fight that you must win.People often feel embarrassed to talk about what they want.Not the easy wants: I want to go to that new restaurant, I want a new jacket, I want to go on a trip.It is an unfortunate reality that, within almost all couples, one person is victimized by the other.As a result, the focus of many of their discussions is on blaming each other. Look at your partner and think of what you could reveal about yourself to him-her at this moment.
