Is it REALLY so hard to pay attention to tone?

I know this is meant to be satire, but it brings up something serious – how hard it can be to learn the nuances of communicating with your partner.

While it should always be the responsibility of the speaker to make her – or his – feelings known, sometimes it’s hard to be perfectly frank and ask your boyfriend, say, to stay home. It makes me feel insecure and demanding to have to ask, and it’s disappointing to think that the person you’re with doesn’t want to spend time with you.

Do you wish you had a translator to understand what your partner wants?
