I see a number of women here on Tumblr talking about conversations and how important it is for them to be able to communicate effectively with their partner.
I’m blessed to be able to have a decent conversation with almost anyone. It’s one of the skills I planted and nurtured while growing up, because I love to communicate. (One of the reasons why I took ASL in school, along with French.)
Conversations are a two way street, however. No matter how great of a conversationalist I am, if I’m not getting any feedback, the communication dies. It’s important to express your desire for conversation in the beginning; nobody I know is a mind reader. Some people express themselves in other ways of communication; whether it’s body language or facial expression, some people find it more comfortable to talk expressively. You need to be able to compromise and find a happy medium when it comes to you and your partner’s conversations; if you’re not a talker, try to talk a little more. If you are a talker, try to listen a little more. I promise you, it’s not impossible for two different types of people to have decent conversations day in and day out.
Just my two cents. I ended up giving you a nickel, though, so you can keep the change.
