They just don't talk about the topics guys want to talk about. It's not that they talk too much.
Not all men feel that way.<br />
Just remember. Some guys can only process so many words a day. <br />
Ironically, in real life I'm not that talkative. That seems to bother men, my silence, more than when I speak.
That I can see being in issue. I was in a relationship with a really quiet man. I am in between, but noticed I was doing more of the talking and expressing, so I stopped.
That made him really uncomfortable, uneasy. If that person is used to being able to hide, your quietness would require them to get some skills they aren't comfortable with, since many women, not all, gibber gabber along and they don't have to reveal much, staying emotionally safer.
That does make a lot of sense, thank you. ;)
It's how we process. You women process by talking it out with others, we mull it over inside.
nothing, but then, as a man, I do not complain about it.<br />
I only tell women, that I can't get a word in edgewise, when they complain I never say anything. (jk the last sentence)
Ooh! ohh! I learned in my social psych class this past semester that during the day, on average, men and women talk about the same amount. There are some women who talk A LOT but there are also men who do the same. The reverse holds true. It's just a cultural thing that we hold up
So true. My boss at work is a male and talks more than any of the women who work there.
That is a generalized notion. There are many exceptions. That being said, I personally, as a woman, have begun to have greater respect for the quiet amount us.<br />
Many of the troubles we get into are because of thoughtless words. Much hurt is caused by attitudes that come out through our words.<br />
I sense men know this. They keep their mouth shut when they want to keep relationships. That's smart.<br />
I am learning from that. So, in general , yep, we talk too much,and don't consider the consequences of our words enough.
I agree, though that seems to be their way of it, for some reason men are more comfortable stuffing their feelings, how?..beats me that would give me an ulcer.
Nothing. THEY just don't want to hear it
That's right! They wouldn't be so freaking violent and non communicative if they expressed some feelings once in a while, You've got the tear ducts for a reason guys, USE THEM!
