  • 13:18 Kaisa How to motivate men to talk? Motivation for sex is strong :)
  • 13:18 Nilla-Väestöliitto Kaisa: good q ;) We will ask Heli at the end of the lecture :)
  • 13:22 Kaisa It often feels that people don't make relationship a priority. They say they do, put work, children, hobbies etc. often come first..
  • 13:23 Kaisa They know what they should do, but they just don't do it. We are slaves to our routines.
  • 13:24 Nilla-Väestöliitto True :D
  • 13:28 Nilla-Väestöliitto We are now almost finished, do you have any questions?

  • 13:29 Kaisa Do you think that imagination is a key to a happy relationship?
  • 13:29 Nilla-Väestöliitto Kiki: you can get it from Väestöliisso's online-shop, it costs about 27€
  • 13:30 Suvi I'm ordering it right now :)
  • 13:30 Nilla-Väestöliitto :D
  • 13:32 Kaisa Thank you Heli!
  • 13:34 Suvi Often the problem is, that there are so many distractions (TV, smart phone, the computer... you name it), that when a couple talks, they really don't listen 100 %, they look at these different distractions at the same time which makes the other person feel like they're not heard.
  • 13:35 Suvi Well, that wasn't even a question, ha! :D How to start a conversation without being "demanding" and to ask your partner to take the time to really talk and be present?
  • 13:36 Nilla-Väestöliitto Here is the link to the online-shop to get the game http://www.vaestoliitto.fi/nettikauppa/in-english/
  • 13:37 Suvi I find that taking a walk is a great way to be present and to talk. Is there some ways to do that at home, without making it a scene?
  • 13:37 Kiki What do you think would be the best advice for new cupples?
  • 13:38 Nilla-Väestöliitto Thank you so much for all your quastions, Heli will answer them and then we will end the lecture
  • 13:39 Kaisa Kiss him Suvi, he will forget the tv :)
  • 13:40 Suvi I'm actually in a really happy place, my man likes to talk and is present, but I have this friend who's having problems in her marriage. I'm trying to encourage her to make a difference and "take the step". :)
  • 13:40 Suvi Thanks for the lecture :)
  • 13:41 Nilla-Väestöliitto Sounds good Suvi :)
  • 13:41 Kaisa You lucky thing :)
  • 13:42 Suvi I know! We ended up together AGAIN after 11 year apart. <3
  • 13:43 Kaisa I think it's great that everyone can be a good partner, even if the other one isn't. First steps can be taken. Great things may follow.
  • 13:44 Suvi You can't change the other person, you have to change yourself.
  • 13:44 Nilla-Väestöliitto That is so right :)
  • 13:44 Nilla-Väestöliitto Now we will finish the lecture Thank you for participating in our lecture :)
