Successful Relationships Reading Corner
In our blog this week, our guest blogger wrote about why you need to communicate your love language. Here are some good articles about clear couples communication, and an amusing video, too.
5 Ways Men & Women Communicate Differently “Men and women are different in many ways. They see the world through completely different perspectives. The key to understanding their differences is in the way that men and women communicate.”
I’m a psychologist, and I’ve found one of the biggest relationship problems people have always boils down to the same thing “love languages are a thing (there are 5 of them) and understanding what your primary love language is can be as helpful as the name is cheesy. The best part of discovering your love language style? The more you understand the different ways people show love, the more likely you are to notice those gestures and feel loved. When you start to give and receive love in a way that’s more personalized, it engenders an even deeper connection between you and your boo.”
Sex Talk: Knowing How Males and Females Communicate Can Save Your Relationship “There are reasons men and women communicate the way they do. Understanding how and why our communications differ can go a long way to helping us become better listeners and better speakers. What’s at stake? Just the survival of our relationships. We know that approximately 50% of first marriages end in divorce and later marriages do even worse. Even in marriages that remain intact, communication often is miserable and can lead to irritability and anger, as well as depression and despair.”
Here’s a cute video: It’s Not About The Nail “‘Don’t try to fix it. I just need you to listen.’ Every man has heard these words. And they are the law of the land. No matter what.”
