We all know that men are confused by women, but it works both ways. Women are confused by men, too. These might be some of the reasons.
Men say they love women, but many are only wanting sex.
Hey, guys, women are far more than just their bodies. Look inside to see what women really are. Women are way more than just their looks. Look past the looks and you will find a treasure inside.
Men say they'll call, and then they don't.
Sitting by the phone, waiting for a call, is a bummer, especially if the guy doesn't call. Let's not add to the confusion by avoiding calling or texting. There's enough confusion in the world as it is. Besides, people are busy nowadays, and have a lot of other things they could be doing.
Men promise things, and then don't deliver.
Okay, this is an easy one. Men get distracted way too easily. You send a man to the store, and he discovers an oil slick under the car. He'll spend 3 hours checking out the leak, while you are still waiting for the groceries.
He "ignores/forgets" your birthday, anniversary, or other dates.
Men have terrible memories when it comes to important dates. That's why a lot of women keep dog houses in the back yard! A gentle reminder might help, but don't be too subtle - he probably won't get it.
He doesn't "get" me.
Women can be too subtle at times. Guys are not mind-readers. If you want your guy to understand you, you need to be very clear on what you want. "We need a new dishwasher", not "I wish we had a different kitchen." The clearer you are, the better the chances of being understood.
He won't watch the same shows I like.
Everybody has different tastes. Guys like sports, cars, machinery, anything dangerous. Women generally like other things, as a rule. How about he watches a movie you like, in exchange for you doing something he likes? Example, he watches a Lifetime show and you cook his favorite meal.
I tell him something, but he doesn't hear it or he gets it wrong.
You tell him you'd like some cheese and broccoli, but he comes home with pretzles and doughnuts, or he forgets what he went to the store for altogether. Again, men are distracted easily. They have a lot on their mind.
A shopping list is a great help. Also, "And don't come home until you get what's on the list, and only what's on the list!" Men process information differently than women do.
I tell him I want a divorce, and he says, "Okay, honey."
It isn't that he wants a divorce. Not at all. He's probably too engrossed in a TV show or magazine, or whatever he's working on. Try again later, when he is more ready to listen.
I'm angry and he isn't listening.
Try giving the both of you some time to cool down. Then discuss the situation calmly. Discussing things when you're mad is not the best time to communicate what you really have to say, let alone for him to understand what you mean.
I wish he would tell me he loves me more often.
Men often have a hard time saying they love you. Men show you they love you in all kinds of ways, but women don't always pick up on it. For example, you man might make you breakfast when you weren't expecting it, or they might mow the lawn without being asked, or maybe they gas up the car for you. These are all subtle ways of telling you that you are loved. So, although it's nice to hear the "I love you's", pay attention to the little things he does for you each day. You'll be surprised how many ways he shows that he loves you.
I hope you've enjoyed this little Toop 10 list. I would love to hear your thoughts about the list.
