Communication is the sending of message(s) from one person(s) to person(s). Encarta dictionary defined it to mean to give or exchange information. As for me, I define communication in relationship context to mean, the exchange of information and feelings between partners. The lack of communication has caused divorce and break up in relationships worldwide. Now let look at the problem of lack of communication in true love relationship. I hope you understand what Dr.love is trying to pass to the you true lovers out there. Just know that no matter how true and real your love relationship may be if there is lack of communication in the relationship, the love relationship is likely to crumble.
From my own definition of communication, you will see that when information and feelings are not exchanged between partners, it leads to lack of communication in the relationship. This will surely lead to wrong interpretation of message, lack of trust, low pace of the fun, low pace of love, lack of understanding and so on. When all these are noticed in your relationship, how then can you and your partner enjoy the relationship? Now looking at lack or poor communication, I mean, the inability of you and your partner to share feelings and express the desired information as it concerns the relationship. I want to break this down as little as possible; in the case of feelings, I mean how you feel about your partner; this means how much you love him or her, the joy your partner brings to you, how excited you are to see him or her and so on, the question is how often do you tell your partner how you feel about him or her?. Are you following my trend? In the case of information, I mean basic and necessary information as it concerns the relationship. When I say as it concerns the relationship means that any thing that concerns you and (or) partner personally concerns the relationship. For instance, if you are going to visit a place and you feel that it’s your own business and you are going to come back before the appointed time you had with your partner, it will be in the interest of the relationship to inform your partner about your move in case of the unexpected happening. This is because the unexpected may cause misunderstanding in the relationship. Information is communication. Let look at the case of marriage;
As for marriage, lack of communication has made matters worse for some couples. Wife no longer talk to husband as it suppose to be and husband is doing the same and children are suffering it. Couples are so busy that they no longer share feelings to themselves. Most couples have underestimated the importance of communicating feelings in their marriage and when one of them gets it outside the marriage, the fellow tends to compromise. I don’t have much space to talk about this here. Let look at the causes of lack communication in any type of love relationship;
Shyness, carelessness, ignorance, stress, old age, lack of material things, these are the basic causes of lack of communication in relationships. Looking at suggestions to overcome lack of communication; I will advise couples to decide on a particular day in every week to sit down for couples' talk. This can be done in the house or outside the house. This will give them the opportunity to share feelings and information calmly. For shy partners and couples, they can choose to use written format to express their feelings.
