    When you're with someone long enough, you usually know what they're going to say before they say it. Quiet companionship is a wonderful thing!

    My SO and I (as well as any other female I have lived with) have great conversations. It is important and it keeps communication going do that you stay in touch with one another and what they are thinking at that time.

    BUT, there is something quite nice about just sitting back and being in that comfortable silence every now and then

    I don't feel like my boyfriend and I have much meaningful conversation. It worries me sometimes.

    I think it would depend on the couple, work schedules, etc

    Sad, but probably true. I think most families "zone out" in front of the t.v. instead of talking.

    It's most likely true and it's very unfortunate. Some people work all day and when they get home they plug in to electronics or spend time alone. I can't imagine being in a relationship with someone and hardly talking. However, a few good long talks a week is a necessity for me.

    I talk with my husband more than that a day, But I dont talk at him, BIG difference. Weve been together 20 odd years and its always been a huge important thing.... communication is only bad if ONE side is saying or doing it. Ilove the quiet companionship too, he often knows what Im thinking and vice versa, holding hands for three hours has its own rewards
  • chrisjay 2012/04/26 16:41:51

    I believe couples don't spend enough time in meaningful conversation...they just talk about stuff like
    "So what's for dinner?"
  • Inquisitve Kat 2012/04/26 16:36:33
    a. yes, probably true.

    I'd say "true", but I'm basing that response on my own previous poor relationships.

    Unfortunately with work and other things there is little time to talk. My wife and I are at work for about 12 hours a day.

    Well, we don't live together, but we have been engaged for about a month now. Because he is away for a large portion of the year, I rely on talks with him a lot. I believe that most conversation between loved ones is meaningful, whether it expresses positive emotion, negative emotion, or is just flirting; it helps bond the couple. Even talking about what to cook for dinner can facilitate talking about other things going on in your lives.

    More like True for some and False for the majority as why they are JUST living together and there is not a record of more breakups and things happening as abortion, adoption and just breaking up and going on welfare or moving back home! True for some and False for the Majority...

    For me and my beautiful wife, it is just a matter of time. My working patterns are very erratic. She also works part-time. She is out 3 nights a week with her orchestras, I am out twice one with a church thing the other with my music guys. A lot of our conversations are "Hi, love you, bye!".

    It actually worked the other way around for me. My wife was here first and I came over. She has sense left because the hate that permeates some talks on here drove her crazy. She loves to debate but when you are banging your head against a wall she could not do it anymore. So she is somewhere else and I am still here.

    Kind of crazy how addictive this can be isn't it. :)
