Communication in a relationship is critical. Clear communication works best. Be honest, but polite, about what you want to say. Think before you say it. When talking about things:
Issues of compatibility from an American’s point of view.
People who want a long term relationship (LTR) should focus on compatibility. Because no matter how much you love them, they will not change unless they want to. And their differences can be sources of constant disagreements.
The top 3 issues couples fight most about: sex, money, kids, in no particular order.
Studies show that if one really wants sex, and they don’t get it, they get very irritable. This can lead to more stress and fighting. Thus, you could say sex is a need for some people. But it is not like food. If you don’t get sex you will not die, but you will be very unhappy.
Sex can be a time for intimate bonding and sharing, so many people, men and women, need sex for emotional issues. If emotional needs do not get met, more stress and fighting ensue.
People fight a lot about money. One person is fine having lots of debt, while debt can cause anxiety attacks in the partner. Some compromise must be made. But the very nature of compromise is that no party is happy. Neither gets what they really want, but but get part way there.
Talk about money with your SO if you think things are getting more serious, and you might consider spending your life with them. Never wait until after committing to discuss something so important, and commonly fought about.
The more you have in common, the more likely your relationship will last. So a couple should have bother interests and attitudes in common.
These include hobbies, music, TV shows, activities they can do together to spend time together.
This includes attitudes about politics, religion, how to raise kids, how to deal with money. It covers many of the issues in the top 3 things couples fight about.
Elements of a Healthy Relationship
They admit they are wrong
Anonymous asked: I dont normally do things like this but its late and this is random. I don't really know why we're still "friends". There's not much reason for us to keep speaking to each other and the chances of us ever reforming a real friendships is about slim to no chance at all. I feel a weird feeling of nothingness toward you. Neither anger nor sadness nor feelings of resentment, but also no feelings of amity. The past is who I am today and perhaps that's why I havent actively sought to sever
