Yes I believe it can. I have been married twice(currently successfully)and I also have 5 daughters from teenage to 3 and I can tell you the technique that works best for me is JUST listening and cudling. Everytime I cut i with solutions it foes pear shaped. Woman need a hearing ear and most of the time no more than that. Heck I reckon this is why these days girls love gay men, for their listening skills. Men take this advice and stop trying to fix everything, hear them out give them a cuddle and move on!!
I think listening helps a lot, real listening on both parts. no one likes to be judged or told what to do unless they ask. I have a male friend who I had to back off from because he so often judged what I said or gave me his opinion when I didn't ask. maybe that is sexist? he felt he was superior to me?
china, I don't see this as a sexist question. I guess some could, but I don't think he meant it that way at all. listening can say much more than words.
Yes Listening can help ease her emotions. In fact listening when she is upset and even gripping you out without fighting back can get her to finally calm down. I have found that when I am attentive and talk back to her calmly and slowly it brings her down to a calmer level.
LoL Or, you could choose the option I mentioned in the guy thread...knock back a couple Martoni's ask "what is the matter dear?" then hit the couch.Don't forget the "I understand Babe" every 20 minutes or so.
