Ladies? Sometimes (often) when your man is quiet, it's a good thing. It means he has no worries. Don't go looking for drama. You'll find it.
April @ReignOfApril
Women need to communicate. Men prefer to internalize. You must find a delicate balance w/o pushing too hard. Sometimes no news is good news.
April @ReignOfApril
So when you ask your man what he's thinking (& try not to do this too often) & he says "nothing," take him at his word. Don't press him.
April @ReignOfApril
Now, of course, every person is different, yada yada yada, but ask a man about what I said & watch his eyes. It's real all too often.
April @ReignOfApril
Exactly. RT @jasleeack: sometimes too much information can lead to conflict. I have to pick and choose my battles.”
April @ReignOfApril
What I'm also saying, ladies, is to get yourself some girlfriends. Because your man doesn't want/need to communicate, he's not interested.
April @ReignOfApril
Now before y'all go crazy, let me explain that last tweet. Your man cares about you. Yes. But he may not want ALL the details. Feel me?
April @ReignOfApril
And that's where girlfriends come in. Don't talk about your man w/ them, but talk about things you might otherwise share w/ your man. Savvy?
Crystal4Kamala @crystal4obama
@ReignOfApril understood, but find friends who value relationships and marriage.
Ani BOO!ndel! BOO I SAY! @anibundel
@ReignOfApril I've had my best GF since we were 12. She's as precious as fam. You need a girl who knows you to be your outside eyes.
April @ReignOfApril
I don't know. I'm no expert. Maybe I sound sexist or something. But I have been married for 19 years. Take that as you will. ::sips tea::
April @ReignOfApril
You'd be surprised. RT @anibundel: how is this not standard knowledge? The human race confuses me sometimes.”
April @ReignOfApril
I'm not saying NEVER talk to your man. I'm saying talk to him about things you couldn't talk to anyone else about. Does that make sense?
Celeste Merriweather @clbphd1999
@ReignOfApril Much sense! I talk to my hubs about everything but I'm grateful 4 friends to talk about things more than once when needed.
April @ReignOfApril
When your man opens up about something, be there to listen. Because it's relatively rare. Figure out what he's telling U, why it's important
April @ReignOfApril
Yes, BUT, don't extrapolate too much. Don't reach. RT @mare_pear: Good advice. I wud add, listen 2 what he's NOT saying, as well.”
April @ReignOfApril
Boom. RT @ak630: Not. At. All. When my man is ready to talk he babbles like a brook. Otherwise? I leave him be. *files nails*”
April @ReignOfApril
And that's healthy. RT @matchz: @AngelaLynnette unless its me... I just talk lot. I'll let you know if its important though”
Stacie Rose @igotviews
@ReignOfApril Why I tweet! He unwinds, takes a shower and I tell y'all what I think about SCOTUS. I get my say, he gets some peace
Kyle Richardson @kylericho
@ReignOfApril ok, but you are sounding like all the 'man' has to do is just sit and be manly while the 'woman' fusses around worrying? :)
April @ReignOfApril
You're really missing my point. If she knows her man, she shouldn't be fussing & worrying. She is holding him down.And he is her. @kylericho
April @ReignOfApril
This has nothing to do w/ stereotypical gender roles. Anybody here find me weak/soft? I know to give my man space, not be under him.
April @ReignOfApril
When you can be in the same space as your lover & not need to speak (& be fine with NOT speaking, ladies) that's when you've achieved it.
April @ReignOfApril
A peaceful relationship. An understanding of how they work. Balance. RT @AngelaLynnette: @AD_Renaissance what is the IT you've achieved ?”
April @ReignOfApril
Man! Find it and win. RT @Lisawpdx: AKA comfortable silence
