The Couple Problem!

Couples

You get a man and woman together, and they need a common goal in order to really understand each other. They will assume the other person understands when really they do not. They assume the other thinks and feels they way they do. The truth is, we don’t understand each other.

Men are fixers, we just want to fix it now. Or if it is something we don’t want to fix now, we want to fix it when we have time, or when we want to. We want to be in control of our schedules. We don’t want to be told what to do.  We don’t need a boss, we have one, ourselves.

Women feel it is their duty to tell us about our mistakes and our faults. They want to help us do well because they see us so clearly. They know we can do it better, and feel free to share what they see. It’s because they have this love for us.  When they want us to listen they want us to at least say something. They don’t want us to fix them, they just want to be heard.

I am not sure why, but for some reason, men come with this big “don’t say it” sign inside of us. Men just can’t say it. Men want to, but Men don’t.   It’s like men have a huge governor inside them, that prevents them from saying things that are so fresh on their minds.  Men just have a difficult time speaking what is really on their minds. Men don’t like to tell their wives what they don’t like, and men don’t like to tell their wives they don’t like them.  Men struggle with being critical of their wives when it comes to certain behaviors.
