When you ask your partner questions, you might try these tips to be a good listener:

  1. Avoid interrupting.
  2. Try not to redirect the conversation to your needs or concerns until they have finished speaking and feel heard.
  3. Show interest in what they’re saying.
  4. Set aside your judgment. You may make more progress if your goal is to understand them, not to argue, even if you disagree with them. Once they have expressed their views and feel heard, you could find the right time—either that moment or later—to respectfully express your feelings about their responses.

Being both a respectful listener and a respectful speaker can help you and your partner understand each other more fully.This can be a much more peaceful, productive way of communicating than arguing or criticizing. Valuing each other’s feelings and needs (and being open to hearing about them) can help you develop a stronger, healthier relationship.
