So a man would have to learn to read my mind to fulfill my wishes 🙂 https://altealeszczynska.blogspot.com startuup April 19, 2017 11:34 amReply Haha! Love it! Being a guy, we think we can read minds……..but it never works out for me in the end as I was waayyyyy off thinking I could predict what my wife was thinking! LOL! Steve April 19, 2017 9:38 amReply Haha I loved this whole article and the video at the end is just such an awesome ending 🙂 Thanks for making me smile startuup April 19, 2017 11:35 amReply IT’S NOT ABOUT THE NAIL!! haha! Trust in that I’m still learning to figure that out:) Veera April 19, 2017 11:16 amReply Totally agree with every word! Loved this! startuup April 19, 2017 11:36 amReply Thanks Veera:) Please share with me any advice you may have as I love learning about anything that makes my life easier:) Onyinyechi April 19, 2017 11:18 amReply This is so wonderful! Listening is key. Both men and women should practice this. Quickly sharing with the hubby. startuup April 19, 2017 11:37 amReply Thanks!! So true in that listening is key……it truly is hard for men I have to admit. But with anything else in life, like you said, practice makes permanence. Love each other unconditionally and don’t always try to be right is what I’m still learning. Glad that you’re sharing with the hubby as this is the exact reason this site was created:) Dusica April 19, 2017 12:51 pmReply Haha, As a girl I agree with you totally 🙂 Poor guys with us 🙂 Puppy Snuggles April 19, 2017 12:52 pmReply Reading this I immediately thought of the nail video… and there is was at the end of your post! A key to listening, I think, is listen to understand, not listen to respond. Restate and paraphrase what the person said to show that you’re not zoning out. Ask questions to clarify. Sometimes you can combine those two – for instance “So you were on your way home?” startuup April 19, 2017 2:31 pmReply I can’t agree with you more!! Listening to understand and not to respond is soooo hard for me but I know it must be done. #marriedlife:) Kathrin April 19, 2017 12:52 pmReply Hi Blayne, as a woman, I highly appreciate what you explain here. I like to know more details about the typical “man trouble” and I like to see how you try to understand women in general and especially your wife. That is how a marriage will last long. All the best! Kathrin startuup April 19, 2017 1:54 pmReply Thanks so much Kathrin! My wife and I are like everyone else out there….we go through our good times and times of disagreements. What I’m learning…and learning fast is that men and women are “wired” so differently. But it holds so true in that her strengths are my weaknesses, and vice versa. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit Startuup:) Deena | Divine Art of Homemaking April 19, 2017 1:58 pmReply Great advice. Also, don’t pretend to listen because it always gets you into trouble later. 😉 startuup April 19, 2017 2:28 pmReply I’ve got the battle scars of my mistakes made in the past of doing so;) Thanks Deena for the kind words and for taking the time to read this article:) brittany April 19, 2017 2:06 pmReply I’m not sure about a super hero but it is definitely out of the ordinary when a man does listen! Great blog! startuup April 19, 2017 2:29 pmReply For me when I “just listen” to my wife, I feel like a Super Hero! haha! jk! Nadica April 19, 2017 6:21 pmReply Definitely keys for a good relationship are trust, patience and listening. That video is very funny. Addison Messer April 19, 2017 9:03 pmReply So, being a listening wife can be tough too, especially when you are extremely visual and have trouble retaining audio input. Ironically, I have found audiobooks to be helpful for me. It uses a part of the brain that is not normally exercised so to speak. Sally (Flying Food Ninja) April 20, 2017 12:10 amReply Should pass this on to more men in the world. Very well written! Love the Superman pic at the beginning as well! startuup April 20, 2017 10:45 amReply Thanks! That’s the goal:) …….loving your site! I’ll take 10 orders of that Sushi Bento Lunch in Qatar! Hannah Palamara April 20, 2017 5:27 amReply Yes! Listening is a skill that is hard to master but so worth it. My husband and I took a class on listening skills and it was one of the best things ever. Matt April 20, 2017 6:57 amReply Soooo true. I’m a fellow fixer and my wife hates it, but surely it would just be easier. But in reality, I have learnt to listen when the time is right so I guess you could say I’m properly trained! Janella Panchamsingh April 22, 2017 5:28 pmReply i agree, most men only hear but don’t listen they get to distracted Post A Comment Cancel reply YOUR CAPTCHA HERE Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
