Men's Issues and Today's Male

Men Talk; Women Talk; Do They Talk Together?

By Pat McChristie

Men: If men talk to men, and women talk to women, can they talk to each other?

For the Male of Today: 

From CyberParent


When  men  get together, they rarely, if ever, talk  about  their  feelings or inner thoughts.

Rather, they talk about practical matters, like their latest computer update, how to repair their car, or even business.

Talk might  move to the best place to find fish or women, jump to computer games, then continue to the Cowboys, the Redskins, or the sport of  the season.

They also like to exchange jokes and anecdotes and spend a  fair amount of time playing one-up and boasting.

Men rarely call each other to chat and be brought up to date.

When man meets woman, he usually wants to make a good impression. Many single men try hard to carry on witty, fun, and  pleasant    conversations. They  use conversation to discover her interests and feelings  in order to learn how to be attractive to her.

Some  men, either out of nervousness or ignorance, spend most  of    the time talking about themselves, often appearing to brag  about   their  achievements or talk incessantly about their  problems  or   work. But regardless of the subject matter, even the quietest man talks to his woman when love is new.

When women get together, they talk about feelings and relationships, their work, and their family. They enjoy talking but also want the give and take of talk, then listen.

Women often call each other to keep up to date. Conversing is an important part of most female's lives.

As  relationships progress, however, many a man turns on the television and forgets how to converse. This raises a hue and cry from his female partner who says, "You never talk to me anymore."

Some men start talking. Many, however, primarily discuss their own achievements and problems or even revert to their male buddy kind of talk. 

When the woman starts talking about her favorite subjects: feelings, family, relationships, friends, her work,  many men lose interest or bring the conversation back to themselves.

Pretty soon, the man is back to staring at the television each night, wondering where his relationship went, or too dense to know it is dying. The woman is talking to her friends, mom, sister, or neighbor, often about that very relationship and how she is hurting.

Where is your relationship?
