Why can't men understand that when a woman tells him what she feels she means it? Why can't men understand that when a woman tries to explain something leave your mind open and try to comprehend the situation from her satnd point? Why can't men understand women; point blank?

lol...I think sometimes, when a lady is trying to talk to a guy....the "its a small world" song goes running through their head....like seriously they don't hear a damn thing ur saying. But that's not with all guys, some of them are actually really easy to talk to.

How can you expect someone to understand you "point blank" if you don't talk to them in such a way? For example, if you were to tell me "I'm feeling you." You'd get a blank stare. Why? Chances are, your hands aren't on me. If they are, and you feel the need to tell me "I'm feeling you", then you might have mental health issues. If they were on me and I didn't feel them, I need to go to a doctor. See? That's not point blank. Not only does "I'm feeling you" have numerous connotations that mean completely different things from what you intend it to, but its also assuming that something is still holding you back from saying, in no uncertain terms, "I (like/love/whatever the hell you want to put there) you a lot, and I feel that we should try to work on a better, closer, and loving relationship with each other. What do you think?" <<< THAT is point blank. With that said, don't take someone not wanting to be with you in the first place as "he doesn't understand... why don't men understand me?" In addition, if you're going to bring your feelings to his attention, it would, perhaps, be a better idea if you came into the situation assuming that he doesn't know what your standpoint is. If he tries to look at things from your standpoint, he could construe your position into something else. Instead, if you would clearly explain the situation so that it doesn't matter what "stand point" you're looking at it from, then you are more likely to come to an effective solution.

It is probaly because he or she does not care, or is not emotionally or mentally able to handle it.

PRAISE THE LORD!!! This is funny to me, because this question has been around for years, and females are still asking the question. Well, the answer is simple...the same way females understand males. It's a two way street, and each couple is different. Communication styles are different for different individuals; however, I'm going to give an example that might just clear everything up... A man tells his wife that he's going to the store and when he comes back she asked him did he get what he wanted? He tells her yes, and that's the end of the conversation. A wife tells her husband that she's going to the store and when she comes back he asked her did she get what she wanted? She tells him, well when I got to the store I ran into Sharon, you know Sharon the one that I told you that talks to Bill. Even though he be talking to Sally, but I didn't tell her that. She was telling me about the sale that was at the mall this weekend. I told her that I might go. Then after I saw her, I was about to go and grab the milk and cereal, but I kept trying to think if there was anything else that I was suppose to get. I figured that it must not have been important because I couldn't remember anything but the milk and cereal. Then I saw Jennifer when I was getting the milk. She was telling me about how her son had his band concert today. I told her that I didn't even know that Tommy was in band. She told me that he was in band since he was in the second grade. Then she told me that she was planning for Barbara's graduation. I didn't even realize that Barbara was that old. We were joking about how time flies and it seemed like only yesterday when Barbara was just learning how to walk...(I'M GOING TO END RIGHT THERE, BECAUSE I BELIEVE YOU GOT THE POINT!!!) So females, don't be so quick to jump down a guys throat. If we could get to the point to every conversation instead of having to go down the street and around the corner and up the block and back home again. Guys get lost trying to figure out what is the point to the conversation. Just say what it is and be done with it, because that's the best way that men understand conversations from us!!!
