Life provides turning points of many kinds, but the most powerful of all may be character-revealing moments.
What would you recommend we do in case our partner doesn't want to talk?
I find myself wanting us to just go over what we actually meant, before drawing conclusions, but my partners tends to just nod, or say 'mhm' or 'ok'. It really frustrates me because the point isn't that only I say what bothers me and what I understood.
I've asked him explicitly to tell me what he's thinking or to respond to me, as in to have a conversation, but he claims he doesn't have anything to say. Then he moves on from it, and I'm stuck with this itchy feeling that we haven't really solved it. And if I bring it up later again, it really makes it seem like I'm being difficult and exaggerating. But if I don't, it's stays in me, unhealthy.
What should I do?
Not every fight has to be a blow-out. Minimize conflict with these questions.
