Why is it that every time men need to talk about things that matter in a relationship (including how we feel) we immediately seem to have the limited vocabulary of a caveman. But should you want to discuss why our football team got an unfair yellow card, we can talk about it until the cows come home.
Actually, we can talk about nearly everything in life; even things that are important. But somehow talking about how we feel doesn’t come naturally to us. Most of us actually think that it is a sign of weakness or that there is something seriously wrong with us should we choose to share something with our partners.
You see, to most women, expressing how they feel comes naturally to them. For men, it is actually something we need to force ourselves to do and learn.
Expressing feelings between a couple can often be more like a monologue rather than a conversation. And trust me, men do have feelings too. And although we do not have to make them known at every opportune moment; it is important to talk to that one person who matters (our spouse), what’s really on our mind. As they say: “A problem, shared is a problem halved.”
So ladies, be patient and understand that if your partner turns into a caveman every time he needs to talk about what’s on his mind, you can always help him with the right motivation to evolve into a modern day conversationalist.
Don’t go for the Kleenex just yet and don’t expect him to be your girlfriend with whom you can share the latest article in the girlie magazine.
After all; even when we do talk about what’s inside us, we are still men.
