Anneintherain : My female half wishes to express her thanks. You were the sort of story/advice she was looking for. That as long as communication stays open, that what she wants is quite possible.
The last thing I have to state is this: In life, good communication is based on facial expressions, active listening, empathizing, understanding, and clearness. In the digital realm , good communication relies more heavily on clear wording, proper grammar and spelling, and verbosity. The less you explain, the more the reader will have to interpret themselves, and therein lies where it usually goes wrong.
