“Don’t try to fix it. I just need you to listen.” Every man has heard these words. And they are the law of the land. No matter what.
Watch this video on YouTube
This is so funny!!!
be a man, tear out the nail.
Great vid mate good job, certainly puts the polarity into perspective.
A wise man once said that in any marriage it doesn’t matter if the husband is right or wrong… he’s always wrong!
well… fine, I will listen. 😀
ha ha ha
Why waste your time with someone who’d rather complain about a problem than fix it?
Brilliant! All my sweaters are snagged-hahaha!!
Okay, I admit that the guy could have used a bit more finesse after the first attempt.
Singles…tell us what you think of this video…ladies is this true??? Guys, is this what you experience? Give us your thoughts! #relationships
I wish people would understand this. It is not a gender thing, it’s a communication thing. Some people look for solutions and suggestions when having conversations and expressing a problem. That’s me, and i’m a woman. Other people seek empathy or reassurance but want to figure it out on their own. Both are perfectly acceptable ways for people to resolve their problems and it’s wonderful when you find someone who understands that. It’s not about the genders!
Ha Crazy Woman
It is better to be a listener than someone who gives advice. When you listen you allow the person to figure it out on their own and achieve personal growth. When you give advice you push your views/beliefs/biases/etc. onto the person and alter their path of growth. Giving advice creates dependency. Listening creates independence.
well done. I love it.
Very simple and easy! “…responding by acknowledging that you’ve heard the complaint and asking what the complainer intends to do – that way, the complainer is put in the position of coming up with a possible solution. If no solution is possible, just acknowledge the complaint and move on.” Gretchen Rubin Bestselling author; blogger http://www.gretchenrubin.com
Here’s how the dialogue goes when it’s a woman worth marrying — Her: [Walks in with bandage on her forehead] “Good lord, you wouldn’t believe what happened to me today. I got a nail stuck in my forehead!” Him: “That’s horrifying! Are you okay?” Her: “Yeah, I pulled it out and put a bandage on it. Still hurts but it’s a lot better than it was. I could really use a hug.” Him: [Huge hug] “You’re amazing.”
LOL just women
The said point as I always figured it out just listen to woman first. Its how women are and discuss it. It works every time 😉
It’s like Big Brother saying 2+2=5
Guys, ladies just want you to listen.
I am so fortunate that my wife doesn’t approach these ridiculous extremes. If she has a problem and I have a solution she is grateful for it and vice versa. I have been in realtionships with people almost as bad as the girl in this video. Yuck.
This is hilarious!!!! Don’t try to Fix it!!!!!!!
The differences between Men and Women relationships. Too Funny but TRUE. It’s Not About The Nail
haha I’m a girl and I’m a fixer, and I’ve had guys ask me to just listen! but this is funny 🙂
When she says, “you always do this!”, that is ALSO a kind of not listening. Isn’t telling him what to say the way that SHE’s trying to fix HIM? If she’s entitled to say whatever she wants, then he is, too.
This is awesome hahaha
I just love this one…too funny 🙂
life would be a lot easier if all i had to complain about was snagged sweaters
