It generally happens that even the best communicators end up making common communication mistakes while communicating with their partner. But do you know these communication mistakes have the power to ruin your relationship? Here are 10 Communication mistakes you shouldn’t make in a relationship
1. Using ‘I’
Relationship is about‘we’. So, if you are in habit of saying‘ I think you should do this’ or ‘I did this’ then it will create a big problem one day or the other.
2. Not using the right tone
Do you raise your voice often? Do you use dominating tone? Re-think that! This tone will only create negative consequences.
3. Not listening to your partner
Communication is a two way process! If you love talking then you should also listen to others.
4. Not having conversation
No mater how tricky a topic or a situation is, if it is bothering you then you should have a conversation about it with your partner. Avoiding the situation is not a solution.
5. Being too intrusive
It is time to take a step back if you are asking too many questions that are not even required.
6. Taking his opinion for granted
It’s not good if you are careless about what your partner thinks and wants in a relationship. Don’t take his wants as second priority.
7. Not making eye contact
Do you look away when talking to him? Are you not making eye contact with him? If yes then you are disrespecting his feelings. Show you trust him by looking into his eyes when talking.
8. Interrupting often
So you listen to him but you often interrupt him with your own remarks and opinions? Isn’t it rude?
9. Making assumptions
Just because he didn’t text you back, you assume that he doesn’t want to talk to you or he is busy in partying with his friends. Instead of making assumptions, why don’t you ask directly? Not letting him explain his situation and making assumptions is the main cause of all the problems.
10. Expecting him to know everything
Yes, he is your partner but expecting him to know everything is not right. Instead of waiting for him to guess it on his own, speak up what you really want.
