Communication is a very important tool given to humans by God. its importance in human living cannot be overemphasized so also in any love life. Many individuals go into relationships and after a while, it becomes a thing of the past, reasons that (they don’t feel the relationship anymore) as they always say. Communication brings lovers together and makes it easy for them to build chemistry and love. The communication you have with your partner plays a significant role in determining how happy, fun and strong your relationship would be. No matter how difficult some topics may seem sometimes, discussing them will help ease a lot of tension and leave room for growth in your relationship, and you would get to understand your partner better.

At the beginning of every relationship there seems to be no end to the number of topics to discuss with your partner, but sooner or later the initial “getting to know you” discussions are exhausted and then what next?. Recent research has proved that the male and female brain is wired differently, that fact manifest itself in a myriad of different ways; essentially men are better for some task and women better for others.Topics that are of interest to the men are not same as for the women.This is where most lovebirds miss out and are confused on what their next move should be, and sooner than expected they begin to feel bored with their partners and next loneliness sets in, and if not handled properly there is a breakup or a divorce.

Phrases That Shortens Love Life

The way you communicate and interact with your partner may draw you closer to your partner or kill your love totally. Due to this, you need to be conscious of what you say to those you love and make sure your words are helping you build your love connection.

Here are some phrases that can shorten ones love life:

 I can’t……

This is a defeating phrase that makes it seem like you are at a dead end and have no choice but gives up. “ I can’t take it any longer”. Words like this, when said automatically stops any further push. Instead of saying this, tell your partner how you feel, what you want, listen and see if you both can come to a compromise.

You should…..

Using this phrase implies that your partner cannot make healthy decisions on their own, and it may drive a wedge between you. “ you should have done it like this..”  because your way is not good enough for me. Instead, ask your partner to help you understand what is on his/ her mind or what is the plan. That way they will know that you are interested in their own point of view.

You always…… or You never…..

The moment anyone hears either of these phrases, they may try to get defensive, angry, and withdraw from you. “You never help out with the chores” ”You always forget to call me”. Instead, ask for help with the house chores, and find out what will work.
