Humans generally loved to be heard so it isn't different in romantic relationships and most of us think our partners aren't in-love with us because they simply can't listen to us.
4 ways to be a good listener in your relationship
Simply nod your head, words like 'uh huh' and 'that makes sense' would work in this case
Relationship coach Bruce Muzik gives couples tips on how to be a good listener to your partner with these 4 tips.
1. Be responsive to each other's talk: Simply nod your head, words like 'uh huh' and 'that makes sense' would work in this case.
2. Avoid multi-tasking: Divided attention never works in communication because you'll never be able to focus on either of them well. If you can't do that excuse your partner and focus one, then when you are done, put your attention back on them.
3. Simply listen, clear your mind of any agenda: During conflict, couples listen to each other with the intent to reply not to really understand. Always do one thing in this case - listen.
4. Listen to learn: Couples don't to learn, they listen to point out mistakes. When you listen to learn, you understand many things about your partner including body language and moods.
