February Much too often in life, I have come across couples or one person in a couple who complained about the significant other in their life not listening to them. These people often hear, but do not listen.
And this single point is what brings about the downfall of a good portion of relationships today. Listening skills are not automatic. We grow up communicating very differently from one another, depending on a wide range of factors, gender being just one of them. But gender is usually the easiest to focus our attention on because the generalizations made about the genders hold a grain of truth in their words for all of us.
In a typical generalization, men and women are brought up and learn completely different ways of communicating with one another. A good book to read more about these differences and how you can overcome them is, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
The sexes up to this point get along well, we believe, until they actually settle into a long-term relationship where these differences become more obvious over time. Men and women simply have different values regarding relationships, as well as vastly different ways of dealing with stress and emotional issues.
Men tend to hold their emotions in, letting them simmer, and then sometimes explode in pain or anger. They typically find it more difficult to discuss and express their emotions.
Men and women alike will turn to outside activities, like working-out or excercise, as a means of dealing with stress or emotions.
This is a healthy response. However, the differences men and women have communicating are often glossed over in the beginning stages of a relationship, even during the first few months.

The upshot of this information is simple -- learning to communicate open and freely with your significant other in a relationship is the key to a happy relationship. Expressing feelings as your own is important. Listen carefully to what the other person is telling you about how they feel, and learning to respond to and validate their feelings.
There are no such things. All feelings are right and justified to the person feeling them and one needs to learn to respect that basic truth.
What you said was very mean. Your words were very painful for me to hear. All you have "won" in an argument is additional resentment on the part of your significant other.
This is extremely difficult for some people to do, because they cannot get away from their own feelings, even for a second. But by learning to do so, one can get a better sense of where that person is coming from and what may be motivating them to say or feel certain things.
In the end, you may each want to ask yourself these kinds of questions to help you get started on the path to better communication: As a woman, has it occurred to you to Ask your partner "just to listen" so that you feel better by getting things off your chest?
Listen to your partner without suggesting "your solutions" but letting him find his own? As a man, has it occurred to you to Stop yourself from interrupting other people, especially your partner?
