This clip from the TV show ‘Friends’ exemplifies perfectly the difference between men and women. I love that men cut through the bullshit and say it like it is, without taking a trip down the emotional roller coaster. And as a woman I love taking that emotional roller coaster trip on occasion and requiring all of the nitty gritty details of an exciting event just so that I can relive it in my imagination. Life would be so unbelievably boring if we were the same. ‘Vive la difference’, as the French would say.
But then there is the old chestnut that always seems to arise post conflict in a relationship where the guy/ or dominant person will say ‘It’s not what you said, but the way you said it’. This will always indicate that one person in the relationship is generally more sensitive than the other. This is often the reason a relationship like this can work. Where two opposing personalities can learn from each other. The saying ‘opposites attract’ is often very true. If all else fails and a truce cannot be brokered I find that getting into the car, turning the radio up very loud and screaming my little lungs out normally works pretty well. The makeup is always the best part too.
That’s all for now
