Men seem to be able to just look at each other, point and grunt and we understand, but when talking to women we need to be clear and most of listen. People need to talk to each other and listen to what the other one is saying in order for communication to work. Many people often feel that their partner should know what they are thinking and do not communicate their thoughts and wants to them.
I have friends who spend more time sending text message to their spouse than they do talking. I feel that we lose the true meaning of things with just using simple words in text messages and it leads to misunderstandings. I would say to them do you think they understand what you ware saying because I didn't and I am standing here next to you. There have seen major arguments in their houses because they sent a text to tell their spouse something and the spouse took the message another way.
