    I am not sure this concept is understandable by women… at least, any of the women that I know.
    My mom is like that… and … hrm… so is my wife… very interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Haywire —

    So your wife is like your mom? Hmmm…it doesn’t take Sigmund Freud to figure that one out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Seriously though, that was the key point of those mega-selling Venus/Mars books: that women and men are incomprehensible to each other. The flip side is this: A woman is telling you a story about a problem she’s having. Do you a) interrupt with a simple, practical solution? or b) wait until she’s finished and say “Gee, that must be very upsetting”?

    It’s totally counter-intuitive, but according to the Venus/Mars guy, the correct answer is b! I tried this for a while myself and it worked like magic, but I was spending so much time listening to long, pointless stories that I had to give it up.
