Lack of Communication
The Effects of the Lack of Communication in a Relationship
To keep a relationship healthy, there needs to be conversation involved. Without
conversation, the relationship ends. Some causes of this are distance, familiarity, independence,
someone else, and lost of interest. Distance can be a problem because him or her may be in
college and not have enough time for the other person. If he or she is involved in sports or
extracurricular activities, then there may be a tendency to forget about the person they may be
dating at that time. Being away from each other, the phone bill may be run up because the two
may always want to talk to each other. Also, being away from each other, the interests can
change. In college relationships, students tend to be busy and its hard to find time for one another.
Familiarity is another effect. I, personally, being young, like to meet new people. In a
relationship, it's hard to meet new people because of the relationship. If a person isn't able to
meet new people, then its easy to become too familiar with the person your dating.
Independence is the third cause. When dating, independence is given up to better suit the
other person. Its harder to do things alone because you are doing things with the boyfriend or
The forth cause is someone else. While dating, it's easy to become involved or meet
someone else. If this happens it usually leads to a break up.
Losing interest is the fifth point I would like to make. With too much familiarity, losing
interest can become a problem. For me, seeing the same person all the time becomes boring.
My personal experience only relates three of these: familiarity, lost of interest, and
independence. I started dating a guy a few months ago, and with in a few weeks familiarity, lose
of interest and independence set it.
