If your sweetie exclaims, “You never listen to me!”
then you’re guilty of being uninvolved and non-responsive in conversations.
Blunder #3. Kitchen Sink Talking
If your honey announces, “You always bring up the past.”
then you’re guilty of turning a molehill into a mountain.

If your mate shouts, “Don’t you have an opinion?”
then you’re guilty of taking a backseat in your relationship.
Blunder #5. My Way or the Highway Thinking

Blunder #6. Exhibiting Priority Mix-up
