lol. i wouldn't say women are more complicated. men are just as complicated in their thoughts just that they are brought up to hide their true emotions and feelings and not share it with others.
I mean i'd rather read her story than his story. lol
his doesn't even make a story. doesn't even count as one sentence.
C'mon, you know its not that simple. A man is not a mind reader, neither is a woman.
The problem is, even when you ask a woman whats wrong, she will say "nothing, if u dont know it already, then there no point in telling u". WTF!! What can a man do?
Yes, you shd be sensitive and observant to you partners feelings, but communication is about being clear, precise and direct about what u are trying to say - Not sending out signs, signals and codes, that could be ignored or misinterpreted.
On the tie issue, i would definitely specify what & where i want it from, as its one of those things that is so easy to get wrong.
The woman in question is compensating for her boyfriends lack of communication by over-thinking things through.
We're all adults, and guys don't pretend you don't understand how your moods and behaviour can be perceived.
I know if I'm behaving differently to how I normally behave, someone could take it as me being offended with them, even if I had just had a crappy day at work.
If I sense that the person I'm with is a little cautious because of my mood, I would start a conversation, which would reveal that I'm not in the best of moods. I guess sometimes people don't want to say a thing, but that lack of talking will lead the other person to make their own conclusions.
Would you really want a girlfriend who needs you to say things before she picks it up.
e.g. would you want her never to buy you a thing unless you explicity say; "I want that tie from. ."
Wouldn't you be amazed if through knowing you in depth she bought the tie and surprised you with it?
I think the woman should have just asked the guy as soon as she detected something, but the guy probably would have just said bluntly; "I had a crap day at work." which might have not been enough for the analytical woman in question.
"I got a shag though"
If my husband ever said that or thought that . . man that wouldn't be a positive thing at all. .
