Are you worried about your relationship? 5 Conversation Starters To Help Get Your Relationship Back On Track

Being worried about your relationship is already stressful enough, then add being worried about how to talk to your partner about it., This too can seem too overwhelming, but ignoring the issue won’t make it go away. If you’re feeling uneasy, and you think that something is not quite right but you can’t put your finger on it, you may need to broach the subject with your partner. But how do you do this and how should you start the conversation? No matter what the issue may be, talking about it will help, so I’ve put together 5 simple relationship advice conversation starters to help you start the conversation...


1.       There’s something I need to talk to you about… when would be a good time?

4.       I’ve noticed that ____ has changed, can we talk about it?

If a particular thing has changed or a behaviour change is at the root of your worries about your relationship, then you may find tackling it head on works for you as a conversation starter…

5.       I’m worried about ____ can we talk about it?

Don’t forget that blame doesn’t help, but listening to what your partner has to say, without jumping in, is often the key to getting your partner to open up and say how they feel.
