Does your DH or SO ever pick up on subtle cues?

Just wondering. My guy misses those subtle little cues ALL THE TIME! Augh!
You know subtle cues like facial expression, steely eyes, body language or tone of voice.

  • Oh, no he picks up on all of it. He chooses to ignore it if I'm not talking about whatever it is, but he still catches them. He'll also flat out tell me "I know you're feeling _____, so would you just knock it off and talk to me about it?" lol

    I think a lot of the time they do pick up on the cues, they just choose to ignore them for whatever reason.

  • None of them. I have finally learn to tell him what I am thinking. I use to try to use the subtle signals and he missed them all. Then my feelings would be hurt and I would be mad at him. It is much easier to just tell him what I am thinking.

    Men are just men...not mind readers.

  • Never has and never will. Heck even telling him flat out right doesn't work.

  • my ex never got them, now i just tell him in plain terms what i want.. (ex. need you to take the kids on x day because i have an appointment or one of the kids has one, or the baby just grew 3 inches and needs new clothes (since we still dont have a court date its a way for him to pay CS)
