I never knew I had a deep need to talk until I got married.
I thought I was a cool, in-control girl who didn’t have annoying female traits like “plenty of conversation”.
Until I began to feel frustrated when my husband didn’t understand what I needed from him.
In spite of the “hints” I dropped all over the place.
I have always been competitive, so in efforts to “beat” him at the equals game, I refused to demand things from him that he did not seem to need from me.
