Why do some relationships work, and others fail? Why are some couples great at communicating and others not so much? Four main behaviours act as barriers to communication: Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling.
Dr John Gottman called them the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. We've put a different spin on them and modernised it. The Four Villains of Communication impact your relationships, marriages and work relationships. These destructive patterns of communication in the way of honest reflection, destroy connection and intimacy and make your relationships bound for disaster.
It’s always so much fun when you start dating: you put yourself out there, you meet new people and you start to feel good about yourself. But sometimes it can be a little awkward and even daunting.
In every dating experience, there are lots of “firsts”. The first conversation about intimacy, the first night spent together and the first time you find out what each of you likes in bed. When it comes to communicating with your significant other about sex, it can put an extra amount of pressure on you.
Sex is a vital part of romance. When we feel insecure about our sex life,it can hold us back from enjoying the time with another person. It’s scary enough to start a conversation about sex and dating problems with someone we really like. It’s even worse when we feel like there is no one we can talk to about it because we are afraid to be judged by our friends and family. We also end up not saying anything to our partner yet the issue does not go away when we choose to stay silent about it.
