Talking is a good and needed way to get to know each other, but don’t overlook opportunities to be quiet together. If one or both of you is still in school, try studying together. If you have work projects that can be done at home, try working on those together. If one of you has work or school that needs to be done, the other could read a book in the meantime. This doesn’t have to be done all the time, of course; everything in moderation. But remember that sometimes silence is golden.
