Dr. Firestein, I have been in several relationships in my adult life, including one marriage and several other long-term relationships. Communication has always seemed to be a problem in my relationships. I used to think it was the other person’s fault, but now I’m involved with a woman that is a big-time communicator.  Being with her has made me realize that I am really a poor communicator and part of the problem all along has been me. I feel like she over-communicates and I under-communicate. How do we bridge this difference without getting on each other’s nerves.
