    I've grown up with a bunch of girls in my house

    and I've learned to listen and to be sympathetic. I'm kind of a tough guy at school but sometimes I like to just drop it and have real conversations with people. Those are the moments I live for.

    I think i am a pretty good listener

    but not much as an advice person. If i haven't experienced what you've been through then i can't give you advice. If you need to rant or voice your opinion feel free to shoot away and tell me. It's better to let things out then hold them in.

    I've been told this many times.

    And most times I rather enjoy it. I know it must feel good to have to someone listen and actually take interest in what you're saying. It's part of the reason why I toyed with the idea of becoming a therapeutic psychologist.

    I'm one damn good listener,

    and I think it's turning into a problem! It's turning my relationship with my friends into confession sessions, or I don't know, shrink sessions maybe. They just call me or drop by to talk talk talk, and they pour their hearts out. But when it's me who needs someone to talk to...

    Sometime, try this with your lover

    or mate or best friend... My (now ex) wife and I used to do this, when we remembered that we ought, and we called it "the listening game." Usually, this is a game best played when something important needs discussed or talked (listened to) about. And what it is is to first...

    I am a great listener - I think people need to

    be heard, and while I listen, I think - and when I listen and think, I learn. Zen and the art of listening - even listening to myself while meditating. Not with my legs crossed like a pretzel - just laying there in bed or sitting in my chair.

    When I'm listening to someone talk about a

    I've had so many ups

    and downs I am very easy for people to come and vent to. All my friends come to me and it's almost like I have a sixth sense and can understand everything they are saying and know how they're feeling before they say it. Which is probably why they talk to me.

    "Listening is not done with your mouth,

    Dear." A wise old man told me that many years ago when I was a child. I never forgot it. I recognized through that simple sentence the importance of giving another person a chance to effectively communicate by simply closing my mouth. With life experience, I learned that...

    I love to listen and learn about people.

    I don't have many experiences, but I do listen and learn from the experiences of others. When I meet someone, I ask lots of questions because I want to know and learn about them. Sadly, it's also the only way I know how to carry on a conversation! I can definitely see how that...

    Every time someone needs to talk to me about

    something, I appreciate tha fact that they came to me in tha first place, because that means they trust me. & if they can trust me enough to tell me anything, I'm surely going to listen & be all ears for them. I love helping & listening to others! I have a passion for it.

    I like listening to peoples problems

    and try to find solutions to help them out. My dream job is to become a psychiatrist. Throughout middle school and a little of high school I've saved so many of my friends lives and it makes me feel good knowing that I can use words to help people feel better.

    because I just can't talk due to a severe stutter. It's ironic because I can't tell my problems for others to listen to but I can write them like on here. I listen to friends' problems, I nod, and give them a big cuddle, and they say it's much better than words. I'm glad because...

    but not a big talker. I always listen to everything that can be heard. Sometimes being a good listener can be so annoying. Since I live near the street, I have to listen to the cars rumble pass by my house.
