No communication. They just don’t open their mouth, they run for the hills at the thought of communicating or faced with a partner that communicates, and they don’t make any efforts to help remedy the situation with some therapy or something.
Communicating can be a challenge for a lot of people, but, it has been my experience that if someone can’t articulate their thoughts, or feelings, then they just might not have them to begin with. Similarly, if your partner is not an active listener, he or she also lacks communication skills.
But, if your partner is willing to work on communicating, I think they deserve a shot.
So, what do you do when you find yourself in a relationship that has poor communication, and a lack of effort to change?
Run for the hills!
