This article should be Why Men and Women don't listen to each other. There is no secret. Just the reality that relationships need work to work. If you are not willing to exhibit from the heart the genuine needs and want to both change, selflessly give a little, and sometimes take a little when those adjustments are needed, you are not ready for a relationship. The fact is, jabs and comments such as some of the ones in this thread are only meant to make yourself feel better. If that is the way you perceive one another, perhaps, you just don't need to be in a long term relationship. None of us should settle. Yet, none of us should expect too much of one another either. It is possible to be happy with yourself and learn to be happy with one another.
