You’re talking to him but you know he isn’t paying attention to you. You’ve even told him that you have something important to say, but you can see that glazed look that just screams, “I’m thinking of something else.” So what do you do? You get upset; you start to yell at him saying that he never listens to you. That makes him mad and then he starts to yell back and the next thing you know, you’re both fed up with each other. There’s a better way to communicate with your man so that you don’t get into an argument every time you want him to listen. No, it’s not what you’ve probably tried already –not telling him things because it’s not worth it since he’s not going listen anyway.
Instead, you can implement these magical tips to get your man to understand you and finally feel like you’re being heard.
1. Explain your feelings
While this certainly isn’t always the case, guys generally aren’t as emotional as women are. Therefore, a lot of emotion from you can feel confusing to your man. He may not understand why a situation was so upsetting to you, as much as he really wants to. It can be helpful to explain why you feel the way you do. Explaining that you feel sad because you felt you deserved the promotion more than a coworker goes a long way.
