Listen to each other. It don’t matter if you’re straight, gay, lesbian, etc. Whatever kind of relationship you have, if something is bothering the other person, hear them, don’t just listen.
Guys, when your girl tells you that something is bothering her, don’t just hear what she says, LISTEN her. It might seem like she’s trying to mindfuck you but I can guarantee you that she’s telling you straight up. If she says “nevermind, forget it”, don’t let it go, let her know that you want to understand. Don’t get mad at her, because she might find it hard and feel scared of telling you how she feels. Be patient.
Girls, when your guy seems like he’s having a bad day, ask him whats wrong. Guys like when you show that you care enough to notice that something is bothering them. And you too, don’t just listen, but HEAR what he’s saying. It might take a little time to get him to tell you what’s bothering him, but with effort and compassion, he’ll let you know.
A simple text, phone call, or any other gestures, all those things really go a long way. It works for both guys and girls. Just let them know you’re thinking about them, or how much they mean to you. I’m sure they’d appreciate it.
When you’re out doing your own thing away from your partner, don’t forget to text or call them. :) It’s a reassuring for them especially if trust is a big issue. When you get home, call them and tell them how your day/night was.
