Relationships are built on trust and communication. In order to have trust, you must communicate effectively with your partner. Do you trust your partner? Do you feel that your communication has established a healthy relationship?

    How often do you have a one-on-one conversation with your partner?
    often, but sometimes we won't talk for a day or two
    at least once a day, even on the weekends
    hardly ever, we are either too busy or are with all of our other friends

    When you have one-on-one conversations, who usually initiates and carries them?
    My partner, because usually I can't get a word in
    We tend to go back and forth, sharing thoughts and ideas
    I usually initiate them because my partner doesn't have much to say

    all the time
    once in awhile

    Your partner ditched you last night. You had plans to see a movie and he/she never called. What do you do?

    Saturday night you decide to hang out with your friends instead of with your parnter; however, he/she wanted to hang out with you. What do you do?
    Call him/her on Sunday and just act real casual

    Call him/her before you go and explain the situation, hoping he/she won't get too mad

    For your birthday, your partner gets you a shirt that you absolutely hate. What do you do?
    Return it, but don't say anything. You don't want to hurt his feelings.
    Tell him/her it was a wonderful thought, but it's not really your style
    Pretend that you like it and wear it just around him, if at all

    You cooked dinner - a lovely meal the two of you enjoyed together. You feel that your partner should clean up the mess, but he/she is showing no initiative to do so. How do you approach the situation?
    Tell him/her to do the dishes.
    Ask him/her to do the dishes.
    Wait a little while and if your partner doesn't do them, you'll grudgingly do them yourself

    You told your partner you were going to the mall with your (same-sex) friends. Last minute, another friend (of opposite sex) calls to hang out. You...
    call your partner to tell him/her the change of plans.
    don't tell him/her.
    not worry about at the time and just tell your partner when you talk to him/her next

    You want to hang out with a friend that your partner doesn't like and is a little jealous of. What do you do?
    Tell your partner your plans and ask if he/she would like to come along.
    Explain to your partner that you have the freedom to hang out with whoever you choose, and not to worry about it.
    You don't bother to tell your partner because it will just cause an arguement. Plus, "what you don't know won't hurt you."

    The two of you are getting ready to go out to dinner. You feel that it is your partner's turn to pick up the check.
    Before you leave, you ask your partner if he/she has money to pay for dinner tonight.
    Oops, you forgot your money.
    You don't say anything and avoid the bill when it comes.

    You and your partner are getting ready to go out. You ask him/her if he/she likes what you're wearing. Your partner tells you that he/she doesn't really like it.
    You get mad at him/her for not liking it.
    You express that you are happy he/she was honest, but really, you're a little upset because you either have to find something else to wear or go out being self-conscious.
    You thank your partner for being honest, but wear the outfit anyway.

    Overall, you wish that the two of you would
    talk like this forever.
    talk about things that matter more often.
    not talk about your relationship so much.
  • 14
    Overall, do you feel that you could communicate more effectively in your relationship?
    Not really; we seem to be doing just fine the way things are.
    I don't know. I don't really like to talk about this stuff. It makes me uncomfortable.
    Of course; there are times when I blurt things out without really thinking.
