Have you ever noticed that men and women don’t think the same. For example if a woman says to you, “I want to go to XYZ and buy a 123”, you would think you understand what is going to happen.
A man would walk into store XYZ, walk directly to the location in the store that has 123, pick it up, walk to the cashier and pay for it. Maybe a 10 minute task and it is over.
A woman, on the other hand, will enter the store and immediately start looking at what ever is on the right or left of the store’s entrance. This area will have nothing to do with 123s. You will wonder if you misunderstood the object of the exercise.
30 to 40 minutes later, if you are lucky, you will have gotten to the part of the store where the 123s are located. Now it will take another 30 to 40 minutes to decide if this is the 123 she wants or if there might be another store where the 123 might come in a different color or be a little cheaper.
Even if she buys a 123 and takes it home, the process most likely is not over. She will look at the 123 and ask if you think it was a good decision to buy it or if it should be exchanged for a different color.
Tread carefully with how you respond. Remember, men and women don’t think alike and she may not hear your answer the way you intend it.
