How to strengthen your relationship: Help your partner to understand you better!

The other day I was feeling particularly excited. Not because something momentous had happened. I hadn’t won the lottery, bought a puppy or treated myself to a pizza. No, this was particularly geeky brand of excitement. The kind that only comes about when you have studied a subject that barely anyone else has heard of (Behaviour analysis, I’m looking at you!) and someone you love attempts to understand it. In a moment that took me completely by surprise, not only did they try to learn about it, in the way that my friends smile and politely ask “So you do something with psychology, right?”. This gem of a person went one step further. They showed me that they could define something, a psychological concept, which had impacted upon our behaviour on that very same day.  Cue me squealing and dancing on the spot  like I’d just been told I was going to Disneyland. The things I get excited about on a Tuesday night eh? But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Who is this amazing human being, who learned how to understand our behaviour and used this knowledge to help our relationship run more smoothly?  As the title suggests, it is none other than my long-suffering boyfriend! Let’s call him Aiden.

Carry on reading to find out what he learned and how you too can use it to strengthen your own relationship!
