What You’re Saying VS. What He’s Hearing in Your Relationship

We’re all familiar with the old adage “men are from Mars and women are from Venus,” and it has become the cultural red herring for explaining the differences between genders. But how often does this idea actually make its way into our relationships? Well, perhaps more often that you think. Sometimes we think our significant other is hard of hearing, severely confused, and maybe sometimes just silly. Always remember however that communication is a two way street and when you’re saying something but they are hearing something different, there’s always a way to find common ground.

Relationship Advice for Women Who Have Been Cheated On… From Women Who Have Been Cheated On

We asked women who have been cheated on in the past what advice they’d give to women who are currently dealing with a recent breakup or a stressful relationship because of cheating. Here’s what they had to say:

Sarah—“Listen to your intuition.”

I would have all of the evidence in the world, except his confession and still want to give my ex the benefit of the doubt. It’s not easy to accept something you know will break your heart. Don’t make the same mistake I did. 9 times out 10, my intuition has been right. If you feel like a guy is cheating on you that’s because he probably is; and if not, then there’s something he’s not telling you about how he feels about your relationship. Whichever the case, do exactly what your gut is telling you to do, do exactly what you would do if your intuition was right. I promise that you won’t regret it and you’ll be happier in the long run.
