Men! Don't you love it when you get all emotional and just want a hug and be told "Everything will be alright.", but he just looks at you and goes: "Why are you upset?"

Yeah right! When my throat feels all dry and achy, tears are running down my face and I'm just a mess ... I'm going to analyze and explain my thoughts to you? I don't think so! Told him a couple of times: I CAN'T TALK WHILE CRYING! (Can you?) After I'm done I have plenty of time to think rationally again. Uhg!

  • hugsMine doesn't even ask why I'm upset, he hopes that it will just go away. I love him dearly but he sucks in the comforting department.

  • It's part of the left brain/ right brain thing. They really can't help themselves--they're just not wired like a woman--literally.

  • hold on and just relax. Men can be thoughtless and say we overthink everything but meanwhile they are no joke themselves being so hearless at times....

  • It must be their way to comfort us.

  • Men are fixers. If there is something you are upset about, they want to know what to do to fix it. They need action. If you can't direct them what to do, they are at a complete loss. Personally, I'm glad we're wired differently. Can you imagine if they were like women? ACK! LOL

  • Yes! I hate it especially when it's my husband who gets me upset and then even though I'm mad at him I need a hug and to feel like when its all done everything will be ok and he doesn't understand why I'm so upset. It's like when I want to be left alone he won't go away and when I need him to hold me he thinks he should give me some space to cool off!

  • I recently read "The Male Brain" and it is so true that men are just like that. They can't help it, really. I am learning that when I get like that I go do something I enjoy and distract myself.
