  • I think it all depends on the timing. When do you bring up the topic you so strongly feel should be discussed. He might have had a long day and that would be the last thing he needs to discuss at that time. I don't think we speak different languages...

  • Men and women think differently. Women want to express themselves and how they feel about something and just want to be listened too. Men are problem solvers, if you bring something up their first instinct is to correct whatever they think the problem is. You might want to let him know you just want him to simply listen to you.

  • Men and women are so different. The biggest obstacles is seeing that in the first place. After that it is easier to digest when he looks at you dumbfounded after telling him your thoughts. Mine sometimes tries to say I am wrong. I keep having to tell him that I am not wrong, I am just different than him. Maybe one day he'll fully understand that.

  • They have a different understanding of certain words and sometimes you have to break it down completely for them to understand.

  • Emotions come into play. I have some difficulty with this too.
