We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm not really sure I can agree that women communicate better than men. I think you are talking quantity over quality. I believe it is common for women to say their piece and that after they are done no one has a clue what they want.
Regarding men communicating with women I think what happens is that women like to disagree and men become accustomed to saying whatever works to elicite the least response and then do what they were going to do anyway. Women interpret this as poor communication and never ever in their entire lives understand their part in lack of communication.
My wife less than 30 minutes ago asked "what do you want for lunch?" I responded with a suggestion and you would think I suggested dogshit. So I said well what do you want. She replied I don't know you suggest something. So I wisely picker her favorite choice to which she acted as though I was crazy to suggest that. So here we sit waiting until she gets past her pique from whatever it was that upset her and she will most likely suggest my second option. That is the present state of female communication.
But the important point to understand is she has no clue that she was the one who was unable to communicate what she wanted.
I understand that as a man it is my job to wait patiently until she decides something, anything.
