Verbal nonverbal communication in dating
These non-verbal means of communicating can tell the other person how we feel about them.
If our feelings don’t fit with our words, it is often the non-verbal communication that gets ‘heard’ and believed.
For example, some people find it difficult to express their emotions.
It is often the things that cannot be talked about that hurt the most.
The act of communicating not only helps to meet your needs, but it also helps you to be connected in your relationship. No matter how well you know and love each other, you cannot read your partner’s mind.
Be clear when communicating with your partner, so that your message can be received and understood.
Double check your understanding of what your partner is saying.
It is better to act early and talk to someone about your concerns, rather than wait until things get worse.
