Communicate on a regular basis. Your partner cannot read your thoughts, no matter how well you know each other. Be sure to communicate your needs, desires and concerns with your partner; don’t make him guess what’s on your mind, even if you believe what you’re thinking or feeling is obvious. In turn, listen to your partner when he opens up and take note of what he, too, is feeling. Remember that honesty is key to making these kinds of exchanges work, and that without honesty, there can be no trust between partners.
