      Regardless of whether you‘re married on a date or single on a date, is there always a connection made?  My single friends often say to me, “I really like this guy but I’m not sure if he liked me!” My response to them is “And you think it’s any different when you‘re married?”  

      I have been married for almost 18 years and quite honestly, there are still times when I can’t figure out what my husband is thinking when we are out on a date.  A blank look on his face can mean any number of things.  And I have to tell you, I can be guilty of the same thing!  There have been times when I have gotten lucky and our thoughts have been in harmony.  But not always!

      So ladies, both single and married, you‘re not alone when trying to figure out what they‘re thinking about over that glass of wine...it’s just pure luck sometimes!

      Does anyone else have this experience with your special someone?

        • YES! My husband and I connect on most levels but sometimes he says or does something that just makes me wonder what planet he’s from. Sometimes I wonder why he thinks sitting on a mud car track on a friday night would be my idea of fun. I’m cool with it once in while but let’s mix it up with bar that has live music hitting us vs mud from tires.

        • In my opinion men will never be on our level and they will never fully understand us. My hubby and I have been married soon to be 8 yrs. this is his first marriage my second and he still has no clue what makes me tick most times I have ot be the one to make the first move and make most business decisions. He is a great man but still clueless in some areas in our realtionship.

          Yes, I agree, it seems that the details just don’t seem to matter to them.

          Last weekend, my husband and I went to Chicago for 4 days.  After about day 2 we ran out of things to say! I find that my husband does not “dream” or have any deep thoughts.  I asked him what would he do if he could do anything in the world and he said “I don’t know“.  What? Doesn’t everyone want to do something???  Hello???  

          I just don’t get the “none thought” thing.  My mind is always going!

          Yes, I understand what you mean.  It’s frustrating.  Although there are some men who do talk, and I must admit, I’m a bit envious of those women!  How did they get so lucky, right?

          Hey, I found this wonderful website called, The Love Goddess, (www.thelovegoddess.com) and it talks about relationships and communication. So far, she gives some great advice and talks about “real” topics especially for women. Check it out. It does provide some comfort knowing that I am not alone!  

          I guess there are others like us, though, so it makes me feel a little bit better!

        • Memas1,

          I am sorry about the way your husband makes you feel.  That’s so unfair.  I don’t know why men makes us feel that way. I recently bought a car and my husband told me that where he got his car was the best place to go and offered the best deal.  Even though I got a great deal, it was still not as good as the one he made for his truck. It must be a power thing. Perhaps he is threatened that I could do something by myself.  Shouldn’t that make him feel happy for me if he really liked me? It’s so outdated that men still think this way. And to think I am raising two sons!  Is this genetic or is there hope for them????
