Great thread, good links!!
I read a lot of wonderfully open and balanced opinions on this forum. So I feel you are all great communicators.
I often wonder how to get my feelings and thoughts across to my love without afterwards finding out that we didn't understood eachother. How to communicate while you have a different worldview on topics so "normal" that you think everybody has the same view.
I'm reading on non-violant communication. This manner of communication also keeps your observations and opinions as a personal thing and doesn't throw it at somebody. Interesting for all communication, essential in loving relationships.
