Fri Flirt: Whatchu say? Does sugar taste better than vinegar???

A good base for any relationship is effective communication – the key word is ‘effective.’  Did you know there are 5 parts to communication? Most people are only good at 1 or 2 of the 5 parts. See the parts below:

  • Sender
  • Medium carrying the message
  • Contextual factors
  • The message
  • Receiver

If your love is continually asking if you heard what they said… or questions where in the world you got that idea… or simply responds WTF (silently or out loud), there’s probably a communication breakdown.  

Sit down tonight and whisper in each other’s ear. Better yet, get a chain of friends (or try it at work as a team builder) sit side-by-side; and whisper a sentence in the 1st person’s ear. Let each person whisper the phrase to the person on their left. Allow the last person to shout out the phrase for everyone to hear.  I’m willing to bet that message will be completelyconvoluted!  And you wonder how rumors get started…

Next time you and your babe talk, be mindful of what you say – why the information is being shared – how the information is presented – and how it might be perceived.  Certainly, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.  So let your words be sweet if you must eat them!
