Well, I’m not a guy, so I’m curious as to why I keep getting asked this one, but I do, so here goes:
I think it all comes down to communication.
Men and Women communicate differently.
Taking this to a VERY general level, because not everyone is like this, I’d say that what women tend to not get about men most is that they’re inherently problem solvers.
While a woman has a huge range of emotions, and her world is all about the different shades of feelings and how to “hold space” – to be supportive and allow someone else to feel things, a man’s world is about finding clarity and getting solutions.
Men like getting things done. They need to do “practical” things to feel like they are being helpful.
So, women generally need to understand that when a guy is making suggestions, or pointing things out, that’s their way of being supportive.
(Likewise, guys need to understand that when girls are texting guys over and over and over again about her feelings, that’s a girl’s way of doing something useful.)
