Feelings matter, not solutions

Every one of us has had this conversation at some point in our lives, whether we are a man who wants to fix a problem, or the woman who just wants us to listen. This video sums up both relationships and today's politics.

Many women would rather wallow in self pity and sorrow, than to actually DO anything proactive to solve the problem. It isn't about the nail, it is about how they FEEL about the nail.

This is why so many political issues today involve showing that you CARE about a problem, than they do about actually FIXING the problem.

So true. And the only people who can match women for that kind of oblivious denial are men. ;)

Augh! This encapsulates so many arguments that I have with my wife. I see a problem, I formulate a solution. My wife sees a problem, and she will complain about it to everyone. Then she will replicate the problem at a later point... And I swear she only replicated the problem so she could complain about it AGAIN!
