Men and women communication dating
Men and women differ in the way they think, feel, act, and talk.
Linguists have documented these perceived differences. The primary purpose of these intensive investigations is not to determine which communicative style is best or to motivate others to change completely, but to identify differences for the purpose of understanding and adaptation.
Most women don’t, so don’t be afraid to move on, as it will only get worse and worse. We get a lot of advice about listening more than speaking, so we tend to do that. No one has any idea how much to share, whether we will scare her off, what we should say, how much to say. Stoic Man, but they also do not like Chatty Charlie…so we sit there wondering, WTF? Is he letting those “sips” out, or are his eyes glazed, thinking about a video or football game?
Again, you have a right to expect a certain degree of reciprocation, a modicum of maturity, communication, and empathy. Don’t you want that guy who will be your best friend, the guy who will take that proverbial long walk and have that conversation, the one who holds your interest? Look at whether he is paying attention more than what he may not say. I tell guys to just be themselves rather then what they “think” she will like. Be yourself and if you run into guys that either won’t, or can’t communicate, you need to move on until you find that guy. Took me a long time and a failed marriage to get there myself.
You are not chattel to be texted just enough to keep you hanging on.
If I were a woman, I’d either call THEM up after receiving a text, or ask them to call me so we can plan a date and cut through that clump of peanut butter and get to the relationship part. I remember reading a few old martial arts and warrior books that attuned the “warrior spirit” to everyday life.
