Most people are busy with many things everyday and a partner is interested in those things. Tell your partner what is going on with you. Tell him or her what you did, about your plans, and how you feel.

Maybe some of the things seem a little boring but that’s only because you aren’t really listening. You have something else on your mind or are simply waiting for your partner to finish a sentence so you can start talking.

Don’t just talk when there is some problem to discuss, talk about everyday things and make decisions together.
