Does you partner tell you everything?
January 7, 2012 1:56pm CST
Sometimes I feel my boyfriend hides things from me as he just sits and don't talk. He says it is just because he is that kind of a person but I am a really talkative girl and cannot imagine that there are people who may sit and just do nothing and say nothing. What kind of person you are and what is your partner? Who talks more?

My boyfriend definitely tells me everything...especially if it has something to do with a girl trying to flirt with him or get his number. He's just very honest and upfront about things so he tells me everything. We always have things to talk about. If we haven't seen each other all day then we'll talk about how our day went and anything in particular that stood out. I'm usually pretty shy around some people but I'm very open and talkative with my boyfriend because I feel so comfortable around him. Id say we both talk about the same and there's hardly ever a long period of silence unless we're just relaxing with each other and just enjoying being with each other without having to talk

same here. My boyfriend is ridiculously honest. he even tells me about.. umm, awkward things. It's part of our deal anyway, that we should be honest with each other. we have to be careful of timing though, especially if it's sad or annoying news about flirts. I get mad easily when girls flirt around him. but later on i got used to it, got bored getting angry and learned to shrugged it off. through his honesty, i have learned to adapt to situations and set aside my jealous nature. I'm very thankful i got him.

well, if you are not comfortable and happy with him being like that, then it's possible that he is not the guy for you. But I'm not saying you break up with him, LOL, just think it over. See how much he means to you and take it from there. Be patient with him. Not everyone can be the same. Opposites attract, they always say. And I think that is your case here. A quiet guy and a talkative girl. There's a big possibility that would become bored of him. My partner talks more. I hate it that sometimes when i say something, he interrupts and doesn't seem to listen. so i warn him not to do that and he apologizes instantly. umm.. well, if we have nothing else to do and to talk about, there's an easy solution: make out.

I think we are discussing that age-old issue of relationships here and the fundamental differences between the male and female of the species. In my experience the female always talks more than the male. Men do seem to find it difficult to explain how they feel and I am no different to any other man in this respect. However, in my experience it is most important that the two of you continue to maintain a dialogue at all times even when this may be difficult. Long silences are not good at all. Sometimes if you have both been out at work, it is better to wait for a little while before you begin a conversation. In that way you will feel more relaxed and open with each other.

Yeah but I am not working at the moment so nothing special happens to me. I do the everyday stuff so when he comes back from work I rely that he will tell me something interesting. He is a police officer so he meets people all the time, have strange or dangerous or humorous cases and he just sits down and says how was your day. This is annoying me.

Every person, certainly has something to hide, and not tell anyone, including her partner. I am a submissive, and always obey, what words of my husband. And there are many that I hide from my husband. And I'm sure, there is much hidden by my husband.

Well I am a kind of partner who talks more.. my hubby is a type of person who is shy and she don't want to give any response if not needed.. Me and my partner we usually tell everything even when she wakes up and had a dream she tells it me.. We agree that we won't hide anything from each other.. well I guess that's our secret that's why we are on our 4th year and getting stronger..
