  • Nope. Maybe it's time we move on.

  • When damn near every relationship you have has the other person citing the exact same flaws as the previous person, maybe it IS you.

  • Nope.

    People need to hold up their end of the relationship, which includes being willing to discuss problems within the relationship itself, or that relationship is not one worth having.

  • Oh no, it's a good way to make it worse though. Pretend there isn't a problem, and the problem will escalate whether it is a relationship, health, tecnhnology, etc problem. Best approach is to admit there is a problem and discuss possible solutions then implement said solutions.

  • No, because communication is the very foundation of a good relationship. No communication = no more relationship.

  • I would say no!!! if there is no communication there is no relationship...and it will disintegrate....

  • I've seen the ruins of a dead community caused by a mass exodus before. Unfortunately though, this unyielding partner though has many others on the side, in different sections if you will, so I think the damage wouldn't be noticeable to him.

  • No. With some relationships you just have to accept them as they are or just let them go.
