Dropping Hints

Instead of saying something outright and out loud, a partner tries to nudge the other in the right direction of figuring it out.

It's a sign that you two are not comfortable communicating openly and clearly. A person has no reason to be passive-aggressive if they feel safe expressing anger or insecurity within a relationship.

State your feelings and desires openly! Make it clear that your partner is not responsible or obligated to those feelings, but that you’d love to have their support.
