Why is it men don't pick up on subtle hints from women?


They do, but they ignore them? They don't really listen? They don't care? Or women really have to be straight forward at the risk of injuring some of men's feelings, which usually women are trying to avoid by giving the subtle hints?

    I think our brains are simply wired differently, that's all :) Most men can think in just one way and expect people to be direct. Probably that is one reason we expect women to be straight with us instead of "dropping hints".

    Excellent point! Beating around the bush leaves a lot of room for conjecture. Adults shouldn't be "dropping hints" like children do with their parents! Men have no interest in "mind reading" or playing the game (What did she mean?). Cut to the chase.

    Good answer i intended to say pretty much the same.

    Men just dont get subtle hints maybe even any subtlety, thats a generalisation ofcourse but true enough.

    I dont know many men but i know i am very logical.

    A woman has control by asking for what she wants. Having to (wait around) and (guess) if her man is on the same page makes her powerless. Whether the answer is yes or no you are then free to decide if it's a "deal breaker" or not. Direct saves time!
