Do women have unrealistic expectations when it comes to communication in a relationship?
I'm sure the answer to that depends on who you ask, but maybe the fact that a man's response would most likely consist of a shrug, whereas my girlfriends and I could discuss the subject for about three and a half hours, should tell you something.
You've probably heard this before, but generally women like to vent and be heard in conversations, while men just want to figure out how to "fix" whatever women are venting about (hey, don't argue with me — it's science)! That, along with about a million other differences between the sexes, can lead to a woman feeling like her partner's contribution to their conversations is...a little lacking.
So what does she want to hear? Here's a hint: it isn't always those classic three little words (although saying "I love you" is always nice). Women are every bit as practical as men are, so most of the time what I want to hear from my husband is a lot less romantic than some whispered sweet nothings — but would be just as appreciated. Here are forty things women would love to hear...but, probably never will.
