Communicate with Your Partner

Let’s say you’re married to a woman called Maya and your name is Rohit.

One day Maya comes home from work and she looks frustrated.

And you asked her, what’s the problem? Why are you feeling low today?

She replies I don’t know, I’m doing everything perfectly and yet my boss is not happy with my work. I don’t know whether I like my job or not.

You replied I’ve been telling you for a long time that you should quit your job and find the job you love or just take a break from work.

She replies, what no, I love my job, it’s just that, things are not going well in the office. Also, I forgot to call my aunt as well, this office work is killing me…

You replied that’s why I’m telling you to take a break, and also, don’t worry about your aunt, she will understand what you’re going through.

She replies, what you’re talking about, you already know what she is going through and still, you don’t understand anything. I don’t why I share everything with you.

You see what happened here, an instant of giving a solution to your wife. If you have just listened to her for a few minutes then she might have felt better but no, you don’t want to understand her feelings.

What this means is that men love to solve problems no matter what happens. They feel solving the problem will fix everything whereas Women are different, sometimes they just want to spend time and talk things out.

They don’t want a solution, they just want to spend time.

The end story is, that when women face any sort of problem they want to spend time with their loved ones, they want to talk about it and sometimes, they don’t want the solution.

Whereas, when men face any sort of problem, they don’t feel like sharing, they will spend time alone till they find the solution to the problem they’re facing.

If in the end, men don’t find any solution then they will avoid the situation by watching movies, going outside, or even playing video games.

So remember this and apply this in your life because you need to understand your partner to live a happy life. Otherwise, things will go up and down here and there.

When Men and Women are Stressed

Whenever men are stressed or feel negative, they tend to get angry about little things, take almost everything on their ego, and try to avoid the problems they’re facing, if they don’t find any solution.

Whereas when women are stressed or feel negative, they go into depression.

The solution the author gives is, that men need to face their problems and if they don’t find any sort of solution then always ask for help whether from their wives or even friends.

If you don’t ask then you will never find the solutions.

The same goes for women as well, don’t keep everything inside yourself, communicate with your loved ones because that’s the only way to solve problems.

So be afraid to share your problems, share them and you will feel good.

Pay Attention

Most women complain that men don’t listen to them, they always want to give advice but they don’t feel like sitting and listening.

I’m a man and this is true at a certain level.

I have friends who love to talk for hours but they don’t want to listen, I don’t know why, I have pointed this out many times but still, he forgets this every single time.

So whether you men or women make a habit of listening.

For example, 

My favorite movie is 3 Idiots and if someone is talking about this movie then I won’t jump in the middle of the conversation and start talking about my favorite part of the movie.

I will let her finish and then I will add a few things about how she spoke.

This way, she will know that Rahul was listening and she will pay more attention whenever I say something.

This goes both ways, whether you’re a man or woman.

So from today, be a good listener.

Communication Styles

I have noticed this in real life as well, 

My wife knows every single detail about when we first met, what we ate at dinner, what we wore, and the things we talked about.

I know a few things but when she talks about everything, I feel like did we actually talk about these things.

This is what the author says too, 

He said Women are more detail-oriented whereas men are more direct communicators.

Men won’t remember everything but they will remember a few important things that they feel are worth it whereas women tend to remember every single detail.

Now, you don’t have to be like Women but if you want you can.

This is just an observation by the author.

Source of Happiness 

Women can get happy with even small gifts, they find happiness in small things whereas men can get happy with anything.

For example, if you give a smartphone to your wife and she won’t be happy but sometimes, if you just take her to dinner and she will be happy.

So you can’t understand what she wants whereas men can get happy with a new smartphone, video game, or anything else.

If you’re a man then don’t try to make her happy with big gifts.

Just give her flowers, take her to dinner, go on vacation, go see a movie or go for a long drive.

Do these small things every few days and she will be the happiest woman on earth.
