One ofrepparttar very worst mistakes a man can make with women is to believe that she's an alien creature of some sort. By this I mean that it's a mistake to view women fromrepparttar 149810 stance that she's an entirely different sort of being in every way possible. This simply is not true. Women are different in many ways, but basically men and women are very similar. Everyone hasrepparttar 149811 same basic needs.

Women don't just talk to hear their own voices. Most times they're trying to get a point across to you. Listen...I mean really listen to what they're telling you. Granted, sometimes it may seem as if she doesn't have anything of real importance to say, and in your opinion, she's just babbling on about nothing. But you'd better listen anyway.

If your mind is wandering or you interrupt her with a comment about something totally unrelated to what she's talking about, she'll feel you simply don't care about her and this can lead to hurt feelings and resentment on her part. Over time, this can seriously damagerepparttar 149813 relationship or cause its demise. You should never dismiss what a woman has to say as trivial or ignore her.
