Marriage Counseling Tip: Men's Thoughts Versus Women's Feelings

Marriage Counseling Tip: Men’s Thoughts Versus Women’s Feelings

Perhaps the single most difficult aspect of relationships is effective communication. When a woman asks a man how he feels about a contentious issue in their marriage, he frequently answers with what he thinks instead. The “I think”, versus the “I feel” conversation quickly becomes a circular argument with neither person successfully making his or her point.

Men are unaccustomed to talking about how they feel, so it’s not hard to understand why they revert to what they think instead. It’s become a comfortable default position for men, but unfortunately, not a position likely to lead to marital bliss.

The problem with this communication disconnect is that when women talk about how they’re feeling, they are expressing their emotions, their feelings. Those expressed feelings are a woman’s absolute truth. There’s no debate about feelings because they are a person’s deepest truth. A woman who expresses that she’s not feeling sexual isn’t saying she doesn’t want to have sex, she’s saying that something is missing in her heart at that moment that is preventing her from feeling sexual. She’s not necessarily accusing her partner of instilling those feelings in her, but unfortunately, that’s how men often understand it.

When a man counters that he doesn’t think they’re having sex often enough, he’s expressing his thoughts, not his feelings, and thoughts are always open to debate, opinion, and judgment. That’s when the argument becomes circular. It goes round and round, the woman expressing her feelings, and the man expressing his thoughts, until one or both become angry, frustrated, and tired of arguing. No one wins, and both partners feel unheard.

Once men accept that expressing what they think is helpful in certain circumstances, like where to go out for dinner, what movie to see, what clothing to wear, and at the same time accept that none of these have anything to do with feelings, they will begin to understand the process of communicating effectively.

Sadly, many men still believe that feelings are “girly”, and not “manly”, and while they cling to this belief, their relationships fail because they fear what’s absolutely necessary, emotional dialogue. There is nothing feminine about discussing feelings, and that archaic belief has to be the first fatality in a man’s psyche. The truth is that “real men” do in fact talk about how they’re feeling because they realize that that’s their deepest truth, which is exactly what women want to hear from them.

For a man to try to make his relationship point by sticking to what he thinks, i.e. his opinions and judgments, is foolish to the nth degree. It is a stubborn, totally ineffective manner of communicating his needs. Sex in a marriage is at times about how both partners are feeling about each other. That shouldn’t be difficult to express considering the sex that might follow. A man who tells his wife that he misses the warm feelings that are a part of sex has opened the window to sexual possibilities. He hasn’t lied, and …

Women in the Marketplace

Women in the Marketplace

The saying, “if momma isn’t happy no one is” should be standard practice in the business world, because if you do not make the female consumer happy, you could be messing with fire. Once you get that fire going, it can be hard to put out as women often talk and share their experiences. One of the biggest things they share is shopping do’s and don’ts. You do not want to be put on the don’t list!

Here is another bit of insight on women consumers today. They are not fully marketed to. If you are not tapping into the 80% of the purchasing power you are not reaching your full business potential especially those who market to what is deemed typically a “male” product such as electronics, vehicles, and sports items. Targeting strictly males on these items is not only stereotyping, but also cutting you out of a lot of revenue that can be had from the pockets of women.

It is said, that by 2010 women will control one trillion dollars of the wealth in the United States. If you think about the previous mentioned 80% of the shopping power and add the one trillion to that, you would be just plain crazy not to try to tap into that market. Women already make up over 65% of the online shoppers and you can expect that number to increase as well. So regardless if you are marketing a storefront or an internet based company, women are the larger percentage of the consumers, period.

When targeting your market towards women, it is not much different then targeting men. When doing so, target your market towards professions, interest, and age. Do not just market by age group. At one time, flash may have been enough the spark the interest of a woman, however nowadays, more and more women are highly educated and a flashy advertisement will not gain the same attention as it once may have. Women know what they want and can no longer be stereotyped as the passive woman who is easily persuaded.

Women demand to be acknowledged as a viable part of the economy. They demand to be approached based on their intelligence and not their gender. They demand information on the product or service they are considering purchasing. A woman does not want her time wasted. Their time is just as valuable as a man’s, so keep your sales pitch to the minimum, be precise and concise with your information, but do not belittle a woman by being to simplistic.…
