Girls, our men only listen to us for 6 minutes!

Yes, we make efforts to listen to their nonsense, uninteresting chat, about guys disputing a ball and rolling on the dirt, or their charming and noisy, greasy, and gas-smelling cars, but when it come to listening to us, they switch off after 6 minutes! That is the conclusion of a study conducted here in the UK, but I guess that it's the same on the other side of the Atlantic.

Now, I am not that surprised, I already knew men can't last doing something for more than a couple of minutes!

OMG, I don't need some study to tell me this--I've been married! I KNOW men go into a trance within five minutes of my talking. The signs are there: the glazed, unblinking eyes, the slow nodding of the head, the repetitive tics and apparent signs of brain damage where none should exist. I know this look well, my girl. They do it in front of the TV, at the dinner table(cave behavior), and they do it while they DRIVE. Now, have you ever seen a woman go into a trance while she DROVE??? OF course not! Only a man pulls this shit. My ex would do this constantly, never looking to the left or right whilst driving. He just stared straight ahead, unblinking, eyeballs drying. My God, I hated driving with him. He would blast through yellow lights and if I freaked and reached over, he would whip my arm away and scream "GET OFF ME". Freaking nut.

Horses and carriages were invented for a reason. Cars are for women, not men.

That's funny, It'd be the same as for me to say - ''Men can be that relaxed drivers because they know how to drive, Women need 100% focus to handle such a trivial task.''
Which is untrue, but that's basic generalization for you by your definition.
While his driving might have been reckless and your not at fault for thinking he did wrong - can't judge all the Men by his actions, the same goes for the so-called study 'proof' above.

I don't know. I've been in three car accidents...all parking accidents. The road, I am good on, the parking lot... not so much.

Well maybe you should not repeat the same thing over and over again. Especially WHILE WE DRIVE! With nonsense that we have probably already hear you stating before.

Side note: Women are SO rude!! They should start listening to actual conversations coming from a Man's mouth!!
:By above side note, it seems equality is already there for that subject: Point being, Many women behave like that too.

I don't know if I agree with you exactly. I know we women can be rude, but usually we are only rude when we are being harassed by a man. You guys can get pretty repulsive. What do you expect us to do in response?

Some people want "gender equality back-dated", the belief that however SEXIST men have been (and I admit they HAVE been sexist, including not allowing women to vote for a bit) that somehow, somewhere, women will have EXACTLY the same SEXIST role in the future! That somewhere, women will have "revenge back-dated", not actual gender equality. I've seen the TV series Blake's 7, I know how this will pan out, LOL.

I can listen to any woman speaking unless it's Hillary Clinton. Her shrill voice is like nails on a chalk board to me especially when she gets into a rant and rage! On a general note stop[ repeating the same story over and over I heard it the first time. This is what loses my attention it's called repeating! Otherwise I love woman to death! Unlike some of the hate statements mentioned above about woman hating men! I love most all what what woman are all about! But stop repeating and nagging!

She has a bad voice, true. As far as her anger goes, both she and Bill have bad tempers. I am getting upset with Bill making speeches for her and loosing his temper and fighting with legit protesters and reporters. He is out-of-line and makes Hillary look weak. I wish she would send Bill home.

Women are not innocent of doing this! Mothers do this to their young children! When the toddlers and very young children start to chatter, Mothers will smile and look very far away after a few minutes. At least, my Mother did...

Did your mother have more than one child? Because everyone does have a limit, you know.🙂 I always thought I was a great listener and worker, until I took care of a family with three very boisterous children, and one day, while I was working in the kitchen, one of the munchkins came in and started chattering at me. I suddenly found myself very far away...

Chances are you don't have anything interesting to say or you were probably talking just to hear your own voice.

Good thing it was only 6 min.

That is the sort of remark we learn from our parents, and has no place with intelligent adults. I heard the same thing from one of my parental units when I was a child, too, Sidon. It was wrong of your parent to do this to you.

Possibly because women are the ones to raise kids, and spend a lot of their time telling the kids to stop something etc that as adults, both men and women don't want to listen to women. It sounds like reprimands or it is because we are used to not listening to our mothers by teen years.

I think it has been established that men need to concentrate on a single task, and have trouble working on one thing and keeping up a conversation at the same time. They have to make pauses in their work.

Women, on the other hand, are able to do multiple tasks and communicate at the same time.

I think it makes sense if you look at primitive woman and man--the man is a protector and doesn't need to concentrate on anything more than, well, say protecting his family from a wild animal or another man. The woman has multiple tasks taking care of family, including care of children while making clothing, weaving, making pottery perhaps, cooking, farming... and much communication to both children and mate.

Men: zero, Woman: one

A friend of mine had an interesting thing to say: when people "zone out" (stop listening, and say "yes" automatically to anything), why can't they TELL ME they're zoning out!?

I laughed, and proceeded to tell him a long story about something - when I noticed (shock, horror) HE was ZONING OUT...LOL...so I thought it best to challenge him about this. What was his response?

He said, I could not tell that I was zoning out.

So I said, you cannot tell if you're zoning out?? How do you expect others to tell you WHEN they are?

This can be reciprocal too... I listen when my boyfriend is telling me things, but I have to confess that, some times, it doesn't mean I pay attention 😛

But this is true that most men, do not make effort to listen.

This is a not a matter of; boys not having interest in a girls' chat. Boys/Men can't concentrate, that's all. It's not a matter of the topic of a discussion, our (yes I am a man, so I know what I am talking about) brain quickly wanders away and getting lost. You might feel that when men talk to each other, it's not the case, but it is. It's simply that, when we chat together, subjects are shorts, and we keep jumping form one topic to another, all the time.

Men and Women do not have their brains working the same way. Men have short living attention, and prefer simple things. Remember, Women were made after Men (Genesis), so Men are still a bit more primitive. So, do not expect too much 🙂
