Can You Communicate Too Much?

Nick Slade Nick Slade • 9/25/14

You can never have too much communication, but you can definitely talk too much. Talk ceases to be communication when the other person stops listening or no longer cares about what you are saying.

When it comes to emotional and romantic issues, it’s great to tell your lady how you feel and how much you want to protect her and care for her. But a logical Power Point presentation of your intentions and feelings will never be what wins or keeps her heart.

They say that 90 percent of communication is nonverbal. If you hug her or hold her in your arms, she will immediately understand your ability to comfort and protect her.

Kiss her often and touch her hand, shoulder, hair and face as part of your regular communications. That says “I love you” just as much as the words — probably even more.

Do little things to help her. Rub her neck or feet when she gets home from a hard day. Give her little gifts for no reason at all.

And most of all, never forget the other half of communication — listening. Take an earnest interest in what she needs to tell you about her day, her thoughts, her desires, and her ideas. Then demonstrate your love by making it matter in the choices you make together for the big and little things in your life.

Your actions, your attention, your consideration, and your touch can tell her so much more than any words ever will.
