They’re focused on what’s being said because they want to know all the fine details, whereas men are primarily “head-liners” meaning they just want you to get right to the point-“just say it”. Men don’t seem to have the patience that women have when it comes to listening; they’re moved by what they see, t whereas women are moved by what they hear. Men are usually of few words, and they expect you to read in-between those few words to see exactly what it is they’re trying to say.
This is their way of saying that they’re really listening and they really care. I feel the one thing that women should not do is over-dramatize, becoming very emotional, which can sometimes be viewed as a turn-off, even though it’s a part of their nature. I can’t actually say that women are better listeners than men, they just seem like it since they use more words, and relate from their own life experiences, which makes the person speaking feel as though that woman is really paying attention to what’s being said.
