We all fall victim to the texting and email and don’t actually just talk. I know I have and it did not serve the relationship well.
Recently, I have been very frustrated by my online communications. Men write 1-2 sentences. They don’t ask questions. They don’t keep the conversation going. Why is this? They answer what you have asked and they hit SEND. Please guys – can’t you have a little more creativity than to write, “yes, I like Broadway plays. I made soup for dinner but am tired and have to go to bed and will email later.” Really? That’s the best you can do? Really? Just another sentence … just one more to say, “I hope you had a nice week and did you have fun or do anything special. Look forward to hearing from you.” Not much more effort, but it shows you are interested and want to keep the communication going.
It makes me wonder if they are interested or are communicating with so many different people that they can only write 1 sentence per email.
Even when you meet in person, I have one MAJOR issue with my conversations with MEN. They do not ASK questions. I don’t understand why? It’s so simple. Are they incapable? Are they so self-absorbed that they don’t think outside their own world?
Conversation has a purpose. It is to share about yourself AND find out about the other person. Show some interest … it will take you a long way.
If some of our male readers could enlighten me as to why they don’t ask questions, I would love to understand. Please share!
