Summary: Seeking advice on helpful phrases to use when a partner is venting

  • Name: Graham Techler Fatherly

  • Media Outlet: Fatherly
  • Deadline: 7:00 PM EST – 28 August

Query: Fatherly is looking to speak to relationship therapists and specialists for a piece suggesting specific phrases one can use when a partner is venting/complaining. In these situations–when a partner is venting about work, family, or even minor inconveniences–it can be hard to know what to say other than “uh huh” and “yeah that sucks”.

This piece will discuss the general rules of engagement couples should follow, outlining simple suggestions one should keep in mind while listening to their partner (listen actively, don’t try to offer solutions unless explicitly asked, etc). The main story will unpack specific phrases that you can use, alongside simple explanations of why these phrases are helpful. Expert opinions on any and all of the above are appreciated.
