watching Dr. Oz about male and female brains they say it's fundamentally important to understand that women think differently than men. Dr. Oz goes on to explain the outside of the brain is called the gray matter where the processing happens. women have a lot more white matter which allows multiple instant connections to different parts of the brain including the emotions. Men mostly use just the gray matter which analysis, processes, observes without connecting to the emotional part of the brain. My question is do you believe that its just a organic reaction or is it environmental or both. What is your experience in the communication in your relationship and does it fit into Dr. Ozs explanation why men and women are so different?

Not from what I see with myself vs "her".

She can be very cold and lifeless at times.

She also hides what she is feeling and won't talk about it.

I never have that problem...I'm an open book.

Well, women like to vent and men want to fix their problems but they don't want anything fixed, they just want you to listen and say things like, " aww you poor thing! That Jerk! How dare they treat you that way!!"

It's good women are around, they help us to know when we are not nice or when we hurt someone's feelings.

I think a lot is upbringing too.

I agree with you people are not all the same I think guys are told not to be emotional and I think that is why they are that way

I've heard that the location of the brain is different for men and women as well.

A guy who shows no emotions isn't going to be a very good SO/BF/husband. He's just a lifeless soul that sits in the corner of the room while everyone else is having fun. Those types of guys don't talk much either,..."have a good time at the race Joe?" Yeah!

What kind of dinner would you like....Fish, fries, slaw..........

You KNOW that type.....come on?
