How To Make Your Boyfriend To Open Up More

Have you ever felt frustrated because your boyfriend doesn’t open up and communicate what’s in his mind and the things that may bother him? Have you ever found yourself puzzled when he seems angry and withdrawn but won’t talk?

Men don’t like to talk about their problems nearly as much as women do, and tend to withdraw when they encounter problems until they resolve them. And if the problem remains unresolved, the man will remain withdrawn and slowly pull away from the relationship.

If this happens often, chances are that he will end the relationship at some point. And if he is the kind of a man that doesn’t open up easily, just like most men, he probably won’t even say that he wants to end the relationship; he will simply stop calling you.

Before this happens you need to step in and learn how to communicate with your man and how to get him to open up to you.

If you want to get your man to open up more, try these tips and note how much your communication with your man will improve.

1. Use open-ended questions.

An open-ended question is one that prompts the other person to answer in his own words. An open-ended question is one that starts with what, why, how, etc. An example of an open-ended question is: what kind of things do you like to do? This kind of a question opens the doors to the other person to brainstorm and to talk about things he likes.

In a relationship, you can use an open-ended question to ask, for instance, How should we spend the next weekend? or Do you like to do anything fun this weekend?

When you are encountering problems in a relationship, you can use similar types of questions to discuss the problems and to get your man to open up. For instance, you can ask him, What was the best thing that I did for you? This kind of a question can give you a lot of insight into his mind and give you guidance on what are some things that he wants you do start doing more of.
