I can talk for hours with a woman
I can do travel, friendship, kinky,
boring, but not really hilarious nor
exciting ina conversation and I admit
I still have communication issues,
some of which have nothing to do
On the other hand EVERYONE has
issues, I am of the opinion that a
counselor would hear the should word
and point back to the person who uses it;
I guess I qualify, and I am wondering
if I come across more as a Linus or
as a Lucy(not Charlie Brown)
I do think everyone has or had issues. But, what I have found is that women tend to make an effort to work on them, whether it be going to a therapist for some counselling to figure out what they are doing wrong, reading spiritual/self-help books, taking classes to diversify their lives, going on a diet to lose some weight, going to the hair salon to get a better hairstyle, etc. As you can see some of these are trivial, but some of them are serious. Men just seem to be really resistant to going to a therapist, and yet it is an invaluable experience and usually improves a person's life if they ACTIVELY participate in it. I knew one man (ex-military) who had serious PTSD. I met him twice (for two weekends because he was from out-of-state), but once I figured out the PTSD (and he would cry a lot because of it), I suggested counselling. He said no, he didn't need it. So, that was the end of it for me! He lost out because he wasn't willing to do what he needed to do to improve his life!
Most of us can find something to work on. It is too bad that this guy refused to get help. Most people are not well informed about how counseling can help. Women are willing to work from what I can see also. I think many persons cannot imagine how an improvement might feel or might come about or if it can happen at all.
