Each person has his sore spots, tormenting questions, difficulties in relations with the world, about which he loves to keep quiet, then speak out widely.
Communication, friendship, love - these are all mutual processes. These are two-way streets.
You cannot be friends with someone without receiving their friendship in return. It is difficult to communicate constructively if there is no mutual understanding. Such communication turns into a waste of life and nerves.
How, then, can one truly understand the other? Is it always necessary to understand the other? Why don't others want to understand us? There can be many answers. Or not at all. Here are some of the solutions.
First of all, it is necessary to distinguish between situations of communication. Business communication is formalized and structured. Informal communication should be softer. Those who transfer work style to home communication turn home conversations into interviews and interrogations.
Soul conversations are very important in a relationship and the sooner you ask them, the sooner you will understand whether this is your person and whether you are ready to build a joint future.
Here are examples of open-ended questions you can ask your boyfriend to help you understand him better:
Do you want to have children?
How long was your longest relationship?
Have you ever been engaged or married?
Have you ever lived with a partner?
How important is religion or spirituality to you?
Do you think money can buy happiness?
Do you know what college you want to go to?
What's your favorite class in school?
Who is your favorite teacher?
What do you like to do after school?
What's your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
Is anyone having a party this weekend we can go to?
