Communication In Relationships: Should We Say Everything?

Big MouthI have a big mouth, and I’m not talking about the size or the fullness of my lips. These lips are as thin and scrawny as my long and slender arms. But the rapid pace in which words tumble from my mouth are record breaking.

I speed talk. Speedy Gonzalez has nothing on this Dominicana who doesn’t say, “Arriba! Arriba!” but does lift an audience up with her comedic story-telling abilities. And though I am quiet delightful, being this verbal impacts my romantic relationships.

There is no mystery when you say everything you feel and mean everything you say.

I don’t see this as a bad quality. I mean, shouldn’t you tell your mate if your bowel movement gave you a killer cramp? How else is he supposed to know to massage your lower abdomen or restock the toilet paper cabinet?!  Or maybe that’s a no-no as it signifies the couple has become too comfortable. Then again, not sharing at all also hinders the relationship. Last I checked, I only play the roll of Ms. Peo, the extraordinary psychic with extraordinary fortune telling skills.

In the end it is all about balance. Couples should be able to share their woes and desires, but should they reveal the moon shape that is growing under their armpit? Experts suggest that we must show emotional restraint “in order to protect some of the illusions necessary for love”. Just make sure that every word that is spoken is not a bold faced lie.

So what is a person with a big trap to do? Our best bet is to marry a person whom accepts our love of words and communication. It’s natural for me to say whatever is on my mind without always processing the information. I blurt out what I feel, what I want, and dammit, nothing will ever change that aspect of my personality! Let’s just hope my mate has great earplugs or would die if not for the sweet melody of my voice.
