One of the most important differences between men and women is the ways they express themselves.
Women like to talk a lot. Men, on the other hand, don’t. When women have a problem, they like to talk about it for hours. They just want to be heard.
Men, on the contrary, are problem-solvers, and they focus on the solution of the problem rather than on talking about the problem itself.
Every woman has noticed that from time to time, her significant other does not actually remember the things she has told him several times already.
It seems that her man never listens to what she has to say. This situation is very frustrating for women.
Sometimes she talks a lot about something she considers is serious and relevant, but her man just doesn’t see it that way. He just thinks she is overreacting. Why does this happen?
Well, of course your significant other will listen to you and be there for you when you need him most, but there are times when he just won’t take you seriously.
These are some of those reasons your man decides not to listen to you nor take you seriously:
1. You never get to the point!
The truth is that every woman goes into too many details. You keep on talking for hours, and you never seem to get to the point. Men get easily upset with this.
For instance, if you had a problem at work, your man does not want to hear first about the time you woke up, the breakfast that sucked, the terrible traffic jam that made you angry, and then finally about the work problem.
He wants you to be direct and not beat around the bush. If it was that important, wouldn’t you tell it right away?
Why do you keep mentioning things that are not even related to the topic that is relevant?
Just get to the point woman! You’re driving him crazy. If you want your man to take you seriously, just tell him the problem right away, and don’t waste time mentioning irrelevant details.
2. You don’t take advice!
Every time you have a problem, you seek advice from him. You tell him about everything that bothers you, and then when he gives you a piece of advice, you just don’t take it.
In the end, you do everything you wanted to do. The truth is that that you don’t want advice in the first place.
You just want someone to listen to you, someone you can talk to. This is why your man does not really put any effort in listening to you nor giving you the best advice possible.
You are stubborn, and you will do everything your way anyway. If you want your man to take you seriously, tell him right away that you don’t need any advice, that you just want someone to confide in.
3. You complain a lot!
All your man hears is complaining. It seems like you complain about everything that happens around you. He thinks you exaggerate about many things.
Do you? Well, be honest with yourself! Sometimes you do! And he doesn’t like it. He doesn’t like all the negative energy that you transmit.
He may even roll his eyes and think to himself, “Oh, no! Not again!”
If a guy sometimes kisses you all of a sudden in the middle of the talk, he just wants to shut you up!
He loves you, but sometimes you are a bit annoying. It is okay; we all are at times.
If you want your man to take you seriously when complaining, just tell him you need someone to tell you that things will be alright.
4. You change your mind a lot!
Changing your mind constantly does not seem like a positive thing. One day you say one thing, and the next day you say something completely opposite.
He thinks you are not serious and that you’re probably a bit childish. If you want your man to take you seriously, just tell him that you have doubts about something. Don’t rush with your final decisions and opinions!
5. He just can’t keep up!
You share so many details that he cannot keep up. You suddenly start talking about Susie who cheated on her boyfriend and about Emma whose sister went abroad for studying.
Who the hell is Susie? Isn’t Emma a single child? What are you talking about?
These are the questions that pop up in his head. In this case, he will decide he won’t listen to you at all. He will nod his head and agree with whatever you say because… well… why not?
To solve this problem, just avoid talking too much about people he doesn’t know.
6. You sound like a broken record!
You’ve already told him to run errands, but you keep repeating it over and over again. He probably heard you the first time you said it.
Men are not stupid. Yes, they do forget things from time to time, but it is not necessary to repeat one thing over and over again. Once is enough. Okay, twice is okay, too. But don’t exaggerate!
7. He is busy doing something else!
Your man will turn himself off whenever you start talking about something while he is busy doing something else.
He may be busy watching a soccer game or he may be playing video games, etc.
If you are interrupting him just so you could talk about yourself, it might seem a bit selfish.
He cares about you, but don’t expect him to take you seriously at these moments.
It is his time to enjoy himself, and if you have nothing important to say, then let him have fun.
If you really need to talk to him about something that cannot wait, just tell him directly, and don’t beat around the bush.
8. You want him so hard to be interested in what you are talking about!
Honestly speaking, your man is not interested in yoga lessons that you take or in Korean dramas that you watch.
Don’t get angry when he doesn’t take you seriously when talking passionately about them!
He does feel happy that you’re having fun doing whatever you like doing, but that doesn’t mean that he should be a big fan of those things.
You are also not a fan of his favorite football team, are you? It is perfectly okay to love different things. Embrace your differences! Don’t expect too much of him!
