Getting Communication Back On Track
If you want a man to really listen to you, then starting a conversation with him on a fun, positive note sets the stage for a positive interaction. It sounds like common sense, but I’m sure you can think of a couple of times where this hasn’t happened in your relationships.
To get yourself in the right frame of mind, think about what you appreciate in this guy. There has to be something you appreciate about him if you’re thinking about having a future with him. Then, let him know it. It’s called an “ego stroke,” and it works. When a guy sees that you appreciate him, it puts him in a receptive state and puts everything into a more positive context.
The idea is to create the right mood for the conversation, so a guy feels comfortable and wants to open up. Because you know what happens when you start a conversation talking about negative stuff, problems, and issues: he shuts down.
And even if things are tense between the two of you, starting a conversation on a positive note will open the door for re-connection.
