If your man’s communication didn’t stink and if his communication skills weren’t that poor, you wouldn’t be reading this article now.
Communication is an important factor in every relationship. It has the power to make the connection between you and your partner stronger and make you feel acknowledged by them. Unfortunately, it can also make your relationship fall apart.
In fact, the way your boyfriend communicates with you can reveal a lot about the way he feels about you and the relationship as well.
Well, if your bae displays most or all of the following 7 communication behaviors, I’m sorry to break it to you, but you’re dating the wrong guy.
Here they are:
1. He’s not vocal about his feelings.
If you often feel like you have to read your boyfriend’s mind in order to better gauge his feelings, thoughts, and intentions, then there’s undoubtedly a lack of communication in your relationship.
Trying to figure out your boyfriend’s feelings for you and whether the relationship means to him as much as it means to you is tiring and frustrating.
The thing is that when you’re in a relationship with someone who is genuinely in love with you, you know how they feel about you because they’re not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve. So, if your boyfriend doesn’t bother to express his feelings for you, this can be a red flag he’s lost interest in you or that he’s never even been into you.
2. He doesn’t listen to you.
If you often notice that your man’s mind wanders off when you talk to him, this may indicate that your words have no meaning for him.
So, what you should ask yourself is: If what you have to say means nothing to your bae, then what makes you think that you and your relationship do?
3. He doesn’t show affection.
Emotional and physical intimacy is also a sign of communication. If you two are having issues when it comes to your sex life, for instance, you’re dissatisfied with it or you can’t tell when you two were last physically intimate, this is a red flag that your relationship lacks a healthy, open communication.
4. He is passive-aggressive.
A person displays a passive-aggressive behavior when they want to dodge questions or avoid conflict and taking personal responsibility for their mistakes and wrongdoings.
So, if your man often makes cynical or derogatory remarks, ignores you when you complain to him about something bad he said or did to you, or avoids solving your relationship problems, chances are he neither cares about you nor about your relationship.
5. You feel alone in his presence.
If you’re in a relationship in which you feel alone, then what’s the point of staying in it?
If your man doesn’t make you feel free and comfortable expressing your feelings and opinions, if he doesn’t make you feel emotionally fulfilled, and if you can’t feel that love is floating in the air when he’s around you, well, I’m sorry to break it to you, but you two are not on the same page.
6. He has frequent outbursts of anger.
When two people are genuinely in love with each other, they tend to discuss and resolve their relationship problems in a mature, civilized, polite manner. Because their primary goal is saving their relationship.
But, if your man flies off the handle, shouts at you, or insults you every time you try to talk out your relationship problems or every time you make a mistake, maybe it’s time for you to reevaluate your relationship and think about if he really is the person you want to be with.
7. He rarely asks you what you need.
When you honestly and deeply love someone, you want them to be happy. You want them to feel content and fulfilled around you. And in order to make that happen, you try to find out what makes them happy. You show interest in their needs, desires, and wishes.
So, if your boyfriend hardly ever cares about what you need in the relationship and how you want him to treat you, then chances are he doesn’t care about you, nor about your relationship.
