Take love for example; did you know that the Greeks described 7 different type for love? That might be another topic for another day, but for now let’s think about how you show your partner that you love them. Whether you’ve been in your relationship for 3 months or for 50 years, it is always important to show that you care. For most couples, it can be easy to assume that your partner ‘just knows’ how you feel and we become complacent in our relationship.

A surefire way to communicate better with your partner and reduce misunderstandings
It is very rare that anyone wakes up and says "I think I'll have a fight with my partner today." These things just happen, right? Well, not exactly. Over time, all of the past conversations that we have had with our partners help us to predict how today's particular conversations will go.
