Keep your personal anecdotes short and sweet, focusing more on the other person’s stories than your own.
To find out if you’re speaking too much, leave out some details of the story, to see if they’re really interested in hearing more. If they don’t respond, turn the focus of the conversation to something else that might engage them more.
Avoid the temptation to snoop your partner’s phone, Facebook messages, or email account.
While this could temporarily calm your nerves when you see nothing afoul, it is also a behavior that could quickly become addictive, not to mention damaging for relationship trust.
