Quick Tip: How to Improve Communication

To work on improving communication in your relationship, do your best to make it fun - nobody needs more tedious work than they already have. Find a silly couples quiz in a popular magazine, and take it together as you watch television or eat dinner. The point is to find vehicles to get the two of you talking.

When you hit a patch where you feel like the two of you aren't communicating or connecting, suggest that you make a special dinner over the weekend, light some candles, and set the mood overall for the two of you to feel connected, warm, and comfortable.

Whatever you do, don't force the communication - it will flow organically if you make your priority to make each other feel tended to and comfortable.
