Life is co-operation, it is give and take. How will it ever be possible to go through life in a long-term relationship of any kind if one do not talk together and with each other in a constructive, honest and nice way to gain a good outcome for both? It is not possible to do that without. It does not matter if it is a friend relationship, work relationship, flirt relationship, love relationship, parental – child relationship or what ever kind of relationship. Talking at a person is not co-op, it is a monologue that only put the other person down. It only push the other one a way. And it certainly do not create a productive togetherness.
