What Men Don't Talk About....(and why they don't!)

Since time began women, mostly unsuccessfully, have been trying to decode what men say, when they talk, that is. And when a man does talk you'll notice it's mainly about himself. He believes he is not only the centre of his universe, but he honestly believes he is the centre of the whole universe and demands to be treated accordingly. The problem goes don't listen, either. They have a major problem if emotion is brought into the equation. Why are they so scared of emotion, I wonder? Is it because they don't know how to feel? Is it because they feel vulnerable if they allow their emotions to be known? Is it that men are unable to express what they're feeling or just don't want to do so as they see it as a form of weakness? Men have to work hard at being perceptive and sensitive and most, it would seem, can't be bothered trying, whereas these attributes come naturally to women. Women are the 'nurturers', have intuition and know how to use it. Men aren't nurturers and scoff at intuition.

I think there has to be a medium strip where both men and women can meet...on the one hand, a woman wants her man to be the 'strong, silent type', and on the other, she needs and wants him to open talk and express his emotions and feelings. It's a paradox. A nagging woman alienates the man, pushing him further into silence and non-action. Women and men process information differently, but there must be a common ground somewhere...a place where thoughts, emotions and feelings collide....and mutual understanding!

A couple of quotes for you to think about: Women have more imagination than men. They need it to tell men how wonderful they are.

Women have their faults. Men have only two. Everything they say and everything they do.

Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct...they like to be a man's last love.
