Can Better Communication Keep Her From Dumping Me?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You love your girlfriend but you're afraid she's thinking about leaving. Is there anything you can do to make her stay? Can better communication keep her from dumping you? You'rewilling to do whatever it takes to make this relationship work. You just don't know where to get started. What can you do to keep her from leaving you?

In situations like this, more effective communication certainly can't hurt your situation but it might not be the "cure all" you're hoping it will be. That doesn't mean that learning to communicate more effectively can't help your relationship – even when it seems to be down for the count. There are all kinds of reasons that women walk away from relationships from perfectly decent men. Not all of them have to do with a lack of communication. But, if you believe that communication is a problem in your relationship then it's likely that there are some problems that could be solved by learning to communicate better.

There are many different layers involved when it comes to better communication. There are quite a few things you might want to be on the lookout for when it comes to communicating better with your girlfriend. But there's one thing you absolutely must learn to do so that you can have a better understanding of her responses to your attempts to communicate with her. You must learn to empathize with her and put yourself in her shoes. No, not literally teeter around the house in her four-inch stilettos though that certainly would give you a little bit of empathy and respect for her. What this means is that you need to learn to see things from her point of view.

You will never be able to make your relationship work if you can't see how the things you say come across to her. This is a skill you need to master fast unless you want to start exploring ways to get your ex back instead of how to keep her from leaving.

The next step is to learn to ask her for what you need from the relationship. This is one bad thing that happens a LOT to good relationships. Don't let it be the downfall of yours. Learn to ask for what you need rather than becoming angry that she isn't giving it to you. You'll be angry. She'll be hurt. No one will be happy. It's a bad situation for any relationship and it leads to the end more often than anything else.

Finally, learn to use your words to lift her up and make her feel special, wanted, needed, and LOVED by you. Communication is more than just words. Little things you do will mean more to her than words ever could. Show her all these things and see how many ways you can make your message clear without using a single word. That will do more to save your relationship than you'll ever know.
