When I try to talk to my SO about something that is bothering me in my personal life. Like work, friends, family, etc.. He doesn't even make eye contact with me most of the time and gives one word responses like he couldn't care less. I always listen to him and give him my advice. I have asked him why he doesn't care and how he would feel if it were the other way around. But he says "I'm listening, I just don't know what you want me to say". It just seems very rude and selfish of him to disregard my feelings like this. I know that guys are different at communicating than women, but I should be able to confide in my SO about things that matter to me. Should I start acting the same towards him? Do you think that would make him realize how it feels?Answer Question

my guess would be there is more to this story.
how often do you "talk" to him about your problems??? Do you think that maybe it is too often? Do you think maybe you are whining more then looking to actually discuss and issue?
I think you need to do some soul searching... from what YOU typed it sounds like you are a whiner. How many actual problems do you have that need to be discussed... either you are whining about every little thing or you can not handle your own life and end up with problems others would simply deal with.
Men WILL turn off if you are coming at them with minutia... why not vent else where and only come to him with REAL issues.
