Ladies, have you ever wondered why your man can’t seem to communicate with you? At least in a way you can understand? Here’s why that may be the case.
I want to roll my eyes just thinking about having a meaningful conversation with a guy and then walking away having learned nothing. Why? Because half of the time, I just don’t understand what they’re trying to say!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been texting a guy or even talking on the phone with him and been utterly oblivious to what it was we’d just discussed. Women and men are super different beings—no doubt about that.
Why is it that there is such a communication gap between the two genders?
You’d think for people who have to procreate to keep this earth going forward, we should be able to talk to each other effectively, right? Wrong. Far too many misunderstandings come from situations where women just don’t understand what the heck a man is trying to say, or vice versa.
I once almost didn’t date someone because I wasn’t sure he was even into me. When I told him about it later on, he was completely shocked! “How could you even think I wasn’t? I was showing all the signs!” I nearly knocked him upside the head right then and there—to me, it was very unclear.
Two different languages for two *very* different genders
So I did some thinking, digging, and even interviewing, and came up with these 7 reasons why women just don’t understand men’s communication style.
#1 Men have a one-track mind. Now, this isn’t meant to say that men are dumb and don’t think about more than one thing at a time, but rather, it points out that men are typically straightforward.
Ladies, have you ever told a guy you’re “fine” when you really meant that you wanted to rip the head off of the stuffed animal he won for you and shove it down his throat because you’re furious with him? I know you have.
When men say they’re “fine,” they most likely mean that they are, in fact, fine. However, if a girl hears that, she immediately starts to think about how when she says that, it means something that is basically the opposite. This can lead to a lot of arguments because a woman may demand to know what’s wrong, but in reality, everything truly is fine!
