Stay Out Loud: How Important is it to Have Good Communication with Your Boyfriend or Girlfriend?

We talk all the day...to our friends, to our teachers, to our boyfriends/girlfriends, to our parents. But are we just talking or are we actually communicating? And, for that matter, how important is good communication when it comes to healthy relationships?  

So what to do? Well, we asked some real teens what they thought about communication and dating. Check out their responses below and then tell us what you think in the comments or on Twitter (@StayTeen)!


We asked several members of our Youth Leadership Team to share their thoughts on sex, love, dating, relationships, parents, and a lot more.  In this video, from the Stay Out Loud video series, we asked them if they could change one thing in their sex ed class, what would it be. Watch all the Stay Out Loud videos on our Video page.

I know that staying in a healthy relationship with your family is key to all happiness. When i had no one i was depressed. Now that im interacting with them im so happy and not having those suicidal thoughts in my head now. All you have to do is listen and talk with them, smile interact with them, help them, i don't know. But im so happy.

My boyfriend and i have been together for 4 years and we talk to one another every night. We have kept a promise to be true and even though we have had our ups and downs in telling the truth, we are still happy with it.

its very important to communicate with the one you love because that the only way you can get to know them, and why be in a relationship if you cant even talk to your baby

ON OCTOBER 14, 2012 AT 12:56 AM, ANONYMOUS SAID:

I think it is important to communicate with your girlfriend or boyfriend because if you don't then your relationship will be soon to end cause you don't communicate with them. That's why it's important to communicate with your spouse.
