    This is no reason to bail. It's reason to spice up your lives and have a little fun together. After you've been together a few years you don't need to talk as much because you know each other so well. That being said you don't want to take each other for granted either. It's time to play together. Pick a variety of things and make yourselves a date night so nothing gets in the way of it. Picking things to do will get you talking all by itself.

    Whoever said yes is a quitter. Find more things you have in common. Go out more. Share a hobby. Play music you both like. Have sex (talk dirty). etc. etc. etc...

    No communication means no relationship. Time to bail. Unless you're married with children....then at least you'll have something to talk about while you're not talking to each other.

    The decision remains yours. If you must have talking to be happy in a relationship, learn to ask questions that engage him. If he won't engage, break up. He may find that he enjoys dialectic. OR you could learn to be happy with greater degrees of silence.

    Some people don't talk a lot. I don't think that means it's a bad relationship. Often one person talks more and the other might be a good listener. In my relationship, my husband talks all day long. By the time he gets home, he just wants to chill. We do our best communicating on the weekends. It's been over 30 years! I doubt that means we should break up!

    It depends on a million things and you haven't given us enough info.

    If you're young and "dating" is really just the label and you never really see each other, then sure if you're not even talking then maybe you should break up.
    But if you've been in a relationship for a while and you're both just not very talkative people, it doesn't necessarily mean you should break up. I've been with bf for 3 years and we skype every night for a few hours but we don't spend the whole time talking....it's just nice knowing he's there.
    And if you're doing lots of physical things ;) you probably don't have much time for talking.

    It really depends on you and your relationship. If you want to break up, break up. Or maybe just tell him "I feel like we don't talk enough".

    No. It means that we have something serious to work out, that a lot of discussing needs to be done, and then maybe there could be a chance of the relationship surviving.

    It depends on whether u 2 enjoy this quietness or it's an awkward silence in which u try very hard to find some common topics and fail to to it. If you are the first case it's fine. But if you are the 2nd case, there must be something wrong.

    Very much enjoy the quiet times, no arguing with just a peck on the cheek when one or the other is going to work or coming home. Have my interests and she has hers and we both enjoy doing what we like - no muss, no fuss.

    Not sure about 'should'... but it means you WILL!! You cannot have a relationship with no communication! I went out with a guy once who bragged he 'never gets angry'. No, that was because he locked it all up inside, got more and more resentful of stuff I never knew was even an issue, and by the time it was clear there was a problem it was too late! Dunzo!

    You should be able to talk but you don't have to be talking all the time. That gets a bit tedious after awhile.

    not exactly... maybe you should talk it out and why that reason is... maybe something's bothering the other person, maybe they're embarrassed about something or they could be hiding something. if it's that than u should work it out. other times they just don't see it going anywhere then you should end it

    It depends on what your "barely talk" means. If it's a case of just simple lack of communication, that you both don't work on ,then yes, because it will only lead to more serious problems later on. If how ever, it is because you're both leading very busy and demanding lives and time is the issue then no. You both just have to make time for each other.

    I've been through those dry spots with my boyfriend...and it did concern me after a while because it started me thinking that he fell in love with the our lady mailman ....LoL ...
    but I think when a couple starts to get a little too complacent in the relationship that they lose that passion, it is most important that one opts for a time out to have a serious one on one talk.
    Talking and leaving the lines open a liitle bit each day is vital to keeping that relationship crisp and thriving.

    Y'all need to take a break from each other for awhile, just to let things cool down, and if it is meant for y'all to be together, then try again.

    No - not necessarily. At least make the effort to have a heart-to-heart talk about the fact that you two aren't talking much. Some people just don't feel a need to be talking all the time. If you care enough to be spending time with the person in the first place, it's worth the extra effort before you scrap the relationship.

    But I'd be confronting them or figuring out why we were not talking as much
