Communication

Men don't converse the way women do. I'll give you an example. My next door neighbor put his house up for sale. About a month later, the for sale sign disappeared. My husband and the neighbor met over the fence and dh asked if he was staying, and the neighbor replied that yes, they were not moving.

If you are a woman and your dh just told you this, your first question would be "why"? If you had been talking to the neighbor, you would have found some easy, not-too-nosey way to say, "oh? did you change your mind?" and that would open the door to more conversation in which you would satisfy your curiosity.

Returning inside, I asked dh why the neighbor wasn't moving. "I don't know, I didn't ask him. I don't really care."

I guess it's a guy thing. Now, I'll never know.

Have you ever seen Bill Engval's stand-up routine on the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again"? He talks about that very same thing... men & women carrying on a conversation in a totally different way. It is too true!!
