It’s The Communication, Cupid!

Most couples want to improve their communication. And, now more than ever, it’s good to be precise.

Clear, unambiguous language is better than expecting people to interpret your gestures, read your mind or guess what you want.

When you ask for what you need from the creative and powerful stance of vulnerability, tenderness and love, your partner can hear you.

Trying to change someone doesn’t work. Blame-y statements might feel like requests to you… but yield the opposite of what you want.

Reflect on your emotions first. Speak in ways even a stranger can understand. Be clear and non-threatening.

Use your authentic voice and you are likely to benefit the most.
