  • I got to know what I'm trying to make you spell out first.
  • Because many women are teases.
  • Women are complex thinkers. Men are simple thinkers.' Men prefer to get straight to the point. Since women ARE complex thinkers, it's in a man's best interest to encourage women to say exactly what they mean. Then there's no question of what needs to be done... ...and men successfully (yet, temporarily) keep themselves out of the doghouse.
  • A lot of men are wary because a lot of women are real slippery. You say something to them and they say, "I didn't mean that" even though they did at the time but now they mean something else entirely. Basically, a lot of men are afraid of going nuts.
  • Because some, not all, women are not very direct. They exhibit a particular behavior that they think requires a specific response. When they don't get the response they predicted, they are disappointed. By the time they spell it out, even they can't make sense out of it.
  • Because you came in and started talking five minutes before the half time siren, when Hawthorn were on a streak and climbing back from a pounding in the first quarter. And though you told me, I know you said something, you might as well have been talking to the cat. You were talking to the cat, right? Oh. I'm in trouble again, aren't I? I'll be on the couch tonight...
  • Whaddya mean?
  • Because men are from mars and women are from venus
  • Why do women have to make everything so obscure?!?
  • men cannot handle words with more than four letters
  • I don't know, you women seem to have cod-words for stuff. It gets difficult. I live with the female family members... four if you count my brother. It's SO hard to communicate. =P Btw, hows it been Sweet T ?
  • Because they are not as direct and to the point as most men. Therefore, men listen and then think, "what did she really mean"? So spell it out! I had a woman boss who was that way. Not direct and to the point so you had to guess. If you guessed wrong, or things went wrong, it never was her fault.
  • They don't and shouldn't. That's just excusing your man to get lazy :-P
  • Because men are not mind readers.
  • Men's brains are hard-wired for figuring things out like electronics, machine repair, and so on. Women have evolved both hemispheres of their brain specifically for the task of communication. Men have not. So we have a huge evolutionary edge over men, which basically means that, even though we could pretty much grunt to them whatever it is that needs addressing, we still cannot do without them when it comes to the things they do so well :)
  • Men are often very simple. It can be adorable and frustrating.
  • Because women are impossible to read. ;)
  • I used to be one of those men, until I decided to figure you women out. Now, I can almost always infer what a woman means. Some men just do not have the skills to read into what women say.
  • Thats the way we like it.
  • In my experience, they really aren't very good at reading between the lines. I finally had a guy tell me to stop having expectations where communication is concerned...and just say it in plain English. It works.
  • Because men can't read minds.
  • Men act dumb in front of women out of fear of rejection.So they wait for the woman to tell them about it.
  • Here's another question..why do women expect men to "get it" without telling them straight away what's going on? We don't expect that from our female relationships. Men aren't mindreaders...a guy and gal walk into a room and the gal can immediately pick up on any negative undertones..the guy is usually oblivious. We're wired differently..and that's a very good thing, I think. We love our guys because of who they are, and sometimes that includes their being a bit dense about such things. They don't expect us to be able to change the oil, or fix bad brakes or know what's wrong with the car just by listening to the strange sounds. Same thing!
  • Men are simple-minded us girls are a lot more complex
  • Women don't say what they think - they say how they feel - men don't think about feelings so they don't translate feelings well into meaning
  • because i've learned that men take what you say at face value and don't read into it...so when you talk to a man you have to actually say what you really mean...
  • Yeah, if it's not on a TV or computer screen, then us men need for it to be written out in small words* or spoken very slowly and clearly with even shorter words*. :p *The exceptions to these guidelines would be words used in science fiction shows, computers, sports, or food. :p
  • Oops!!!
  • Because the male species are like cavemen. When we are hungry...ohhh ohhhh need food now"....when we are horney "oohhh ohhh must have sex"....Most males have only a few things on their brains. Food/sex/motorcycles/beer/rock and roll....etc...
  • Could you be more specific please? <grin>
  • Hahaha!!!!! Now you've got me!!!!!!! I swear, first we have to pry it out of them that they like us, want to see us, be with us. They don't say it; it's kind of an unsaid rule, if they are nice to us, keep us laughing, we're in!!!! Then when.....it's over, We say: can't see you I have to wash my hair, or I have a headache, they think we are just clean freaks and maybe have a brain tumor!!!!!!!!!!!LMAO!!!!! When I like someone, I want to be with them even if my hair is plasterd to my aching head, I'll still smile and let them in!!! If I don't... I finally have to say:... ya know, you just don't make me feel like a woman is suppose to feel when she's with the guy she loves, and he says; "Why don't you just pour a pan full of boiling water over my head??????..Then I feel real warm and fuzzy!!!!!!!!!
  • I was lucky (??) enough to grow up with brothers, so learned to communicate like a man. Translation: I didn't have many female friends who could tolerate direct and simple communication until my mid-30's or so... Say exactly what you mean and don't pull that "I'm mad at you and if you can't figure out why..." crap on them. Men don't need to be made to feel even more stupid than they can be on their own...
  • probably for the same reason men have to spell it out to me lol.:)
  • They have to spell it out of men because Venus is a more literate place than Mars. Better to get him to spell it out than to have him grunt at you continuously.
  • Higher emotional level, for some odd reason, we can reason!:D
  • Because the men refuse to ask for directions
  • Because women take 10 minutes to say what should only take 5 seconds. We have to weed through all of the "buttering up" to figure out the task they want us to do. For instance, my wife came over to me earlier and said, "honey, don't you think you should get in bed" /why/ "so you don't sleep late" /what difference does it make/ "I need you to go to the store in the morning" --> Translation: "Can you go to the store in the morning and get me some <blank>...
  • because we are like online computer technicians, we go for the first noun in the sentence and focus on that. we dont seem to hear anything else.
  • In general, men talk straight, Women tend not to say what they mean. Also, women don't ask direct questions, because they don't really want to know what you think, they want something else, comfort, or for you just to listen, or a whole list of other vague things.
  • Because men are simple thinkers, while women are more capable of entertaining many variables at one time. Men seem to relate better to objects (like computers) and many don't kow how to relate to or get along with people. Maybe we women should start referring to ourselves as computers and they'd understand our needs a little better. For example, if you want more attention, you could say, "Your PC lonelydragon needs you to perform basic maintenance" or "Your PC lonelydragon requires more user input."
  • maybe you shouldnt expect every man to be phsycic and know exactly what your thinking.
