Communication is arguably the most important part of any healthy relationship. Without it, it can be hard to make things work successfully. Bolde has a few topics that you should be able to talk about to your partner in a relationship, and if you can't discuss them then maybe you should reconsider how great your relationship really is.

  • What you want in the bedroom because while sex isn't everything, it is definitely important for a good, healthy relationship! If you're worried about how he will see you once you tell him your fantasies and turn-ons, then maybe that relationship isn't the one for you.
  • How you really feel about his friends and family, and this is especially true if he isn't holding back about how he feels about yours. You should always be respectful, but if you don't want to go out drinking with his college buddies one night, speak up!
  • Your career goals because your job is a big part of your life, and where you see yourself in five years should matter to him as much as it does to you!
  • Where you see the relationship going because for a relationship to work, it is best to have common goals in mind. Is marriage the end goal for you two? Do you both want children? These are things that a couple needs to talk about and be able to do so freely so that there are no surprises down the road.

Nothing should be off-limits when it comes to discussions with your partner, so try to bring up these tough topics, and hopefully, you and your partner can freely talk about them.
