Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Two people can be reading the same book, but if they aren’t on the same page, they won’t be able to understand each other or have a good conversation.

In the same way, it’s important to be on the same page in a relationship. When you’re on the same page with someone, you have the same thoughts and feelings as them. You understand their point of view and agree with them about most things.

Some say that when it comes to relationships, opposites attract. That means that people who are very different from each other make the best couples, because they compliment each other. But the actress Tori Spelling, who is best known for her role in the TV show Beverly Hills 90210, says that she and her husband keep their relationship strong by staying on the same page.

Tori and her husband have four children. So they must be on the same page about wanting a big family. What else do you think couples need to be on the same page about? Who are you most often on the same page with?

I think that it is important for a couple to be on the same page. I suppouse that they will understand each other and they will not have a lot of problems. As for me I don`t think that I am on the same page with my boyfriend. Usually we have different point of viewes upon some subjects and we have different hobbies. Misunderstanding between us leads to quarrels.

That would be easier for couple on the same page to do anything together. Even though, I suppose some opposites give a relationship some flavors. After going through a fight, people will be getting closer.
