Trying to living on love alone by avoiding sticky conversations? It might work for a while, but not long-term. If you and your significant other aren’t really talking about everything from what faith you’ll follow to how you’ll deal with dips in your s8x life, you’re setting yourself up to stumble somewhere along the line.
Here are some tips on how to bring them up and have a positive and constructive conversation…
1. Appearance or Lifestyle Habits
“Lifestyle habits” is a nice way of saying that your partner has changed their physical appearance in such a way that you’re no longer attracted to them. This is possibly one of the most difficult conversations to have, as you don’t want to hurt their feelings, but you need to let them know that this is not what you signed up for, and that you’re concerned these changes are putting a negative effect on your love life and their health. Try your best to approach this from a place of love and speak calmly, trying to keep anything resembling a judgmental tone out of it. Think about your words and try to use “I” and “me” more than “you” so that your partner does not feel attacked and become defensive.
