Does your husband have conversations with you?

I feel like I am in competition with the T.V. and video games. He won't talk with me. I just get sounds like ah hu and oh. I'm so frustrated and bored!! What should I do?

  • ummm, buy a vibrator. lol. Just kidding! (or maybe not! lol)

    It is are complicated. Or should I say simple---they truly can not concentrate on more than one thing at once....I would consider talking to your husband, and tell him how you feel. Try to set one day apart from the video games, computer, or TV....ask for a totally you, him, and other things like a walk in the park day! If that doesnt work....well, you could do what I did---Try to find a game that you can play with him, and get on his level--He will really appreciate it!! Trust me! And in the end...remember--you are not alone, men will be men! lol

  • I used to think the same thing. But now I sometimes wish he wouldn't talk to me. For whatever reason he has to be right all the time. Doesn't matter the subject. Or if I ask a question it turns into a debate. Good luck

  • I feel guilty answering now! But yes, we talk all the time. We have lots of good conversations. We also bicker a lot, too though.

  • Turn the tv off. If it's interfering with you-time, that's problem.

    The issue really is that men cannot think of 2 things at the same time. If he is watching sports, he cannot converse about relationship things...he has to change the channel in his head to get there.

  • We have conversations a lot, although sometimes I fell like we are "old" because we have been together so long we know each other's stories. It reminds me of the part of Pulp Fiction where she says you know you are comfortable with someone when you can just shut up. LOL!
