How to Get Him to Listen

One of the most common complaints we hear from women is “Men simply don’t listen.” The truth is they only listen and respond more favourably if you do it the correct way.  Many women have the tendency to veer off the main topic and talk in a random fashion—think of your conversations with your girlfriends, and you might realize that you end up talking about something entirely different from the original topic.

We are not saying that men don’t have this problem but focusing on a single issue is the best way to convey your message in a concise manner. Also, men hate having to read between the lines so just serve them the straight dope. Trying to second guess your comments is confusing for them and that often results in misinterpreted intentions, causing more unhappiness. Lastly, express your intentions in a respectful, mature manner. Understandably, many women mouth off awful comments or simply give commands in sheer frustration but that does not go down well with men. Many guys are childish at heart but they still want to be treated as equals so try talking nicely and perhaps, throw in some incentives to motivate them!
