I am totally with you on this one. While I am intuitive, I prefer not to read minds. However, I think men and women are wired differently. I personally like to be told upfront as I prefer to shy away from making assumptions as it always gets me in trouble. Similarly, not being able to read a lady's mind usually gets me in as much trouble too.
The problem is, Kahirup, sometimes we don't know what we think. That is why it is best to keep us talking when there is a disagreement. Women think while they talk. When we stop talking in the middle of a disagreement things can get pretty messy. Much better to encourage us to talk about it...and then let us talk. Your life will be so much easier that way, especially if your discussion is with a woman you hope to have or continue to have a rgood elationship with.
When we ask you for your opinion, we really don't want you to tell us what to do. We want you to talk it out with us. And, when you tell us what we should do and then dismiss the issue...that is a recipe for some pretty messy results.
When you guys ask for our opinion, you really want it, because you think while you are doing something and you wait to ask for help when you can't figure it out.
Once I learned these rules of engagement between the sexes, my life became much easier. Unfortunately, I had to wait for 40 years until I taught a class which included information about male and female neuro-transmitters before I learned these lessons. But they have served me well since then.
