Communication happens whether we think it is or not…..Even in silence you are communicating something!
Men and women are different too, which also complicates the whole communication thing.Women most often would like a sympathetic ear to be able to share their day – with or without frustrations they have encountered. Once a man hears about any frustration or problem his lady has encountered, instead of listening attentively and providing validation and empathy, he most likely wants to jump in and do the manly thing of fixing things!!
This desire to “provide” for his lady is often met with more frustration if she simply wants him to listen.
