4. Lack of Communication

This is a difficult topic because people that say there is a lack of communication are often terrible listeners. They can have full conversations with a man and not take on board a single thing he says. He may come up with very valid reasons why you are wrong or mistaken, but you ignore it. He then continues to act in a way that annoys you, and you say, “You don’t listen” and “Why don’t we communicate?”

The truth is that you need to spend time each week listening to each other. If you have trouble making that work, then write each other a long email and send it to each other. Give a big report on what you did during the week, and the events between you both that you feel were important. It is harder to ignore a man, and harder for him to ignore you, if it is written down in the form of a letter.

@JP thanks for clearing that up. I think this article sterotyped men. And me personally my man watching porn in a relationship is an absolute not. Sorry but I want a man who respects and values me
(I meant we "can" climax but it's not like before, it's not interesting anymore doing it ourselves. My man touches me better than I do myself and same thing with him towards me. That's why I said we "...
I disagree too. Both me and my bf have big sex drives and we used to masturbate and watch porn before we got together but ever since we're together we honestly haven't felt the need to masturbate AT A...
I agree, the article is mainly great except for the masturbation part. My husband and I talked about that and he doesn't masturbate at all while I do. He also thinks porn is "stupid."

Neecey I really like majority of the articles that you post. However, when you start generalizing men I don't like it so much. You don't know every single man out there. Not all men masturbate or stare at other women. Thank you.
