    I listen and watch and observe others and attempt to jump in when needed. Not as the nosey neighbor but as a caring individual who just hates to see others suffer. I listen... do you?

    Ears Not Mouth!

    I definitely prefer listening over speaking. some people don't know that, they either keep telling me to speak more or call me very  shy. i like listening, and like it when others speak more.

    Yes, a Man That Listens.

    Before I divorced, I will admit I never listened. It was about me.... I want this, I want that.... blah blah.... So through the years, I started to listen. And not just listen but to absorb it and understand. About not just the current events, but everything... Life...
