Spouse A says to spouse B: You never want to talk to me!
Spouse A is :
In my entire life, I’ve only heard this complaint ONE SINGLE time where it was the other way around.
Five years ago I wrote about this state of affairs here and nothing has made me reconsider its veracity. Women want to talk and men want us to shut up.
Ladies, how do you deal with this? Have you adjusted to your mate’s low tolerance for your stories, questions and opinions? Have you found other avenues for your need to discuss the things that don’t interest your male partner, i,e, everything? Or do you insist on talking even while he sighs and adopts the grim look of a soldier off to the front line.
Do any of you have any strategies for making this conflict more interesting or entertaining.
I am anxious to hear your thoughts (since god know I can’t discuss it at home unless I just want to talk to myself!)
