Conducted in 2011, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology We identified common trends among heterosexual partners, especially regarding their commitment to each other.
They found that men spend an average of 97.3 days thinking about saying “I love you” to their partner, while women spend an average of 138 days thinking about saying the important words. The study also found that men were more likely to say the word in front of their partner.
Both men and women generally report feeling happier whenever their partners say they love them.
Tracy Clem, a psychotherapist who specializes in building healthy relationships, says: Newsweek: “Miscommunication is common in all relationships. Trying to navigate can leave you hurt and frustrated. What matters is how you recover from miscommunication.
“Seeking expression and explanation are two of the best ways to deal with misunderstandings. Express how you feel and ask for an explanation of what your partner thinks and feels. When we keep our emotions to ourselves, we often create a different story than it actually is.
Klemme also talks about how open thinking can help reframe one’s perspective.
