ScienceDaily (Mar. 5, 2012) — Men like to know when their wife or girlfriend is happy while women really want the man in their life to know when they are upset, according to a new study published by the American Psychological Association.
The study involved a diverse sample of couples and found that men’s and women’s perceptions of their significant other’s empathy, and their abilities to tell when the other is happy or upset, are linked to relationship satisfaction in distinctive ways, according to the article published online in the Journal of Family Psychology.
Today’s advice: Don’t ever drop your jaw to the floor, bug your eyes out, and say out loud to your wife, "You’re f*&%ing crazy!" You can think it but the words that come from your lips should be, "Yes dear." (Using a British accent doesn’t make it any better unless you are John Cleese…)
