@speechgal44 I know! The way many men (including my darling FI) think absolutely baffles me. Compartmentalized is exactly the right word. It’s like his thoughts are in these neatly separated dresser drawers and mine are all intertangled together. I can’t even count how many times I was convinced that something was tied to something else and had this alternative meaning and came to discover that, nope, in his head that never happened. Glad that your talk with him helped you guys understand each other and move forward!

This is a good insight! Things that occur to use women naturally don’t occur to men until we tell them–and usually when we do, they will do their best to make us happy!

This is truely awesome to hear πŸ™‚ Men may do things differently than us but that’s ok!  That’s part of why we love them, they give us a different view of the world <3  I’m glad you guys had such a great talk πŸ™‚

You should read the book “Men are like waffles, Women are like spaghetti.”  A friend gave it to us a wedding gift.  Basically, it says men have little “boxes” for everything in their lives.  They prefer to fix the things in one box before moving onto the next one. Whereas, women can “multi-task” in our heads all the time.  

I try to remember this when talking to Darling Husband about anything….I can go from one topic to another to another….meanwhile, he’s still thinking about the first topic and how he can help me fix it.

@texasbee:  i could use a waffle right now! interesting spin on the men from mars/women from venus thing…will look this up!

OP, that’s great! I remember your original thread…this really highlights how we may perceive our guys in one light based on our own viepoint but when you really do a little digging usually we find that interpret things very differently than our male partners. happy compromising πŸ™‚

They are simpler creatures, they don’t analyze our every mood change to death beyond “must be her period.”

They really don’t multitask and they don’t get the whole coccept of venting.  We vent, they hear, “oh oh, gotta fix something.”  Women intuitively get that venting is doing something, like opening a pressure valve.

Which is why we need to talk to females sometimes.
