    My Love is very quiet by nature....We discuss the things important and have very comfortable silences between.....
    Took awhile for me to get used to it.....Always thought something was wrong.......When I relaxed and understood our dynamic......Everything started spinning in a greased groove...

    Do you talk about music, politics, old movies/tv shows? Kinda like we do here. Try it, it might work!

    I love that my wife and I don't have to jabber constantly. We can drive in a car in silence without feeling uncomfortable. When we want to talk, we talk and have a good time. You don't need to fill every minute with words.

    Maybe try reading the same book. You can have a little book club conversation once a week. Watch some old classic movies together or listen to some new/different music. Discuss your likes/dislikes.

    ...when you come home from work try asking "how was your day" and after that just listen. you can interject with an occasional "oh wow" or "holy cow" or "thats great". once you ask her how her day was, just listen.
