Does Your S/O Listen to You Vent When Your Upset?

I'm upset w/my Gr-sons Dad right now, really mad. So when my Gr-son went home I was venting to my S/O and as usual I got, I don't want to hear it. Sometimes it, just get over it. Then I get more upset because I just need to vent, get it off my chest and then I'm better. Then I end up still mad at the Dad and upset with my S/O. How does your S/O handle it with you? Men they sure can be a pain in the ass at times.

  • My hubby listens to me rant and vent and ramble. He isn't much of a talker, and he says he likes it when I talk to him about things that bother me. I hope you get to vent soon! :(

  • My Hubby tries his best to listen to me.
    Like today I am having issues with my sisters and Mom.
    If I don't get to vent to him I come on cafemom, but sometimes I need to be heard.

  • Mine doesn't listen either. But he also doesn't tell me he doesn't want to hear it, at least you get that, all I get is complete silence, as he's tooo involved in his computer game. Then when I get mad about that he says, I always listen! Bull crap, if he had heard what I said he wouldn't be asking what on earth I was talking about! MEN!!!!!

  • Not as much as he used but that's because I try not to vent to him. I tend to get loud and with his 24/7 headache/migraines, he just can't handle it. Before his health issues, he would listen for the most part. Not all the time, but 90% of the time. There were and still are times, he just rolls his eyes. =)

  • Nah, I know for the most part there are things he don't care about and normally my mom is great to vent to.
