Oh! Also, is your relationship like that? Does Ashley talk more than you? How do you get over the communication differences?
You what I have realized as i have gotten older? Is all this men do this and women do that shit is bullshit. I think gender specific behavior is learned from an early age. Men are taught to suffer in silence, that experiencing emotions are for women, and talking too much is womanly,while women are encourage or expected to open up and talk more.
I know both men and women that can taaaaaaaalk for days. But Majority of the talkers I have encountered happen to be women.because like I said it something taught and encouraged but other times it comes down to personality too.
Ashley is the talker in the relationship. When she explains stuff to me she has to give me the prequel, the sequel and the origins story. And I’m all like, ” Baby just tell me the basic that other story detracts from the story.” You can also tell the difference in how we communicate whereas some of her ask can be up to 6 or 7 essays. At max I will give ya about three paragraphs. I think when it comes to explaining very vital information you should be straight to the point but other than that there is room from compromise
But you know what that’s my baby and she can talk as much as she wants.
Actually, a study was recently done where it was proven that men talk far more than women do, especially in group settings. The study showed that, while in a group, women only talk about 17% of the time and when their talking exceeds that 17% mark, men usually interpret it as women talking more. It’s this cultural thing where we live in a patriarchal society.
Moreover, among heterosexual couples, men have displayed the tendency to dominate discussions with their female partners.
(I’ll have to go looking through my archive for that first stat I mentioned. No time now)
