Have you ever realized that discussing an issue with a guy compared to discussing the same issue women are two completely can turn out to be different conversations? With a guy they will listen then instantly try to solve the problem, where as with a woman she will go through everything involved. Why do men feel the need to resolve and issue and can’t just listen and discuss it like women?
I’ve mentioned in a couple of post that I’ve been reading Steve Harvey’s book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” and in one of the chapters he discusses that women look to men to treat them the same way that their girlfriends do depending on the situation. The thing is that men don’t do that, and they’re not programmed to listen to our problems and discuss every detail of it like women do. A man who cares about the woman that he’s with will want to fix her problems and see her be happy.
A few years ago I was working with a guy who was my age and he had a crush on me, but I was dating someone. So since we couldn’t date he decided to make things difficult for me by making more work for me to do. There were several nights I would come home worn out and complaining to the guy I was seeing about this. So, one day my boyfriend surprised me at work to take me out for lunch and after going to grab my things I noticed that he and my coworker had disappeared. After that day I never had problems with that guy again.
The guy that I was dating said that they had a man-to-man talk and everything was cool, although I was a little embarrassed I know that he did it because he cared. Men may not listen or converse with us the way that we are us to with our girlfriends, or may not seem as engaged in listening as we would like. However, they shows it is though fixing our problems so we can be happy.
