Some of the best advice I ever received about men was a simple statement, ” Men are simple”. The problem is, being a woman, I overanalyzed this simple statement as many woman are probably doing at this very moment. Men aresimple. Not simple minded, but simple as in they say what they want and don’t have any underlying meanings like woman tend to have.
I have been married to my husband for 11 years. I still don’t understand him sometimes. I still have moments where I look at him like he is from another planet; a completely different species.
Our main communication problem is he will say one thing, and I will analyze his words, talk about their “hidden” meanings with my girlfriends and all the while he really meant exactly what he said.
Some simple advice to all the ladies out there. Men say what they mean and mean want they say.
Man: I am hungry.
Solution: give the man food. Problem solved.
Woman: I am hungry.
Solution: too many to count. She may be hungry but for something specific; maybe she is watching her weight. Maybe she just ate but is still hungry but doesn’t want to come off as gluttonous. She may just want food. She may want food but feel guilty after. She may simply want food. It’s all very confusing I know, but that’s what makes us so interesting and intriguing to men. Hey, there are a lot of choices out there!
So remember, men are simple. Once we women get that into our heads and really understand that, then we will be able to truly understand the depths of our men.
