Generalization or the truth?

How can you tell if a guy is using a generalization vs the truth. A generalization I heard a lot of men say "women are crazy" (If they weren't so slow we wouldn't be lol). My bf says I make something out of nothing (even though it is a big thing).

How can I tell the difference?

  • I'd tell him that it IS something to you, and tell him why you feel the way you do. If he can't be empathetic, then you might want to seek couple's counseling.  GL

  • Basically it's his perception vs yours. Just try to explain to him why you think, whatever it is, is a big deal.

  • It just means he doesn't understand women. No big deal.

  • Embrace the crazy. If he can't handle it, then he's not the right guy for you.
    And if a general statement like that keeps eating away at you enough to have to post about it, (you can't ignore it or brush it off) maybe you need to talk to someone.
