These skills work whether you are young or old, monogamous or polyamorous, gay or straight, non-binary, or single. They work whether your partner is using the same skills or not. Most importantly, these skills create change. In most stuck or distressed relationships the partners just stop dealing with each other. Issues don’t get confronted, negative feelings are denied, and disconnects are created. Over time, avoided disconnects lead to an increased sense of distance and the partnership can feel transactional and empty.
