How to Better Communicate with your Girlfriend
You may have started on the right foot but through time, relationships need to be nurtured by both sides for it to last. Communication is very important. By learning to communicate better with your girlfriend, misunderstandings can be prevented.
1. Learn to listen better
Listen to what your girlfriend is saying and to what she's not saying. The nonverbal cues are sometimes more important to catch because women tend to say one thing but mean another. Try to ask questions if you need clarification. Show that you care.
2. Show that you understand
Conflict arises when your girlfriend does not feel that you understood her. By rephrasing what she said. you are showing that you understand what she said. Sometimes, this can be helpful if you are having a hard time catching up to what your partner is telling you.
3. Be honest
Open and honest communication is the foundation of a long lasting relationship. This means that you have to be honest and not mislead your girlfriend.
4. Think before you speak
Sometimes you are in a hurry to react and might say the wrong thing. Think about what you want to say and how you say it to avoid conflict in a relationship.
