In my last post, I spoke on how women pay attention to details and the particulars and also hinted on how they never forget. Women don’t usually forget things, while men generally have to be reminded over and over. As a woman and mother, I’m sure you can relate to this.
Where purpose is not known, people start to become suspicious of others motives. The woman may bring up a previous wrong she experienced, and the man will think, “What’s the matter with her? I did that five years ago, and now she’s bringing it up again. I told her I was sorry.
I asked her for forgiveness. This happened five years ago. Why won’t she forget it? He is angry at her natural inclination not to forget things. Yet that is the way she is made; she is designed not to forget.
Now, a man may remember facts related to his business, but often he will not remember dates and timed and events. For instance, a woman may be dressing for an evening out and call to her husband, who is in another room, ” You remember that we’re going to your brothers birthday party tonight, don’t you?”
The man will have completely forgotten. He is wearing the oldest clothes he owns and holding a big bowl of popcorn ready to watch the next live match. She comes into the room and says, “What are you doing?” “I wanted to watch the game. Do we have to go out?” I reminded you three times about the party! Why can’t you remember anything?”
Most men don’t know the reason why women remember things, and most women can’t understand why men don’t recall things. It has to do with their purpose and design.
Men tend to think about goals and the bottom line, while women tend to remember details. These differences are complementary. However, they can be the source of serious problems in a relationship because when you don’t understand the purpose of something, you can become suspicious of it. You can begin to suspect the person you’re dealing with of having ulterior motives.
Blessings and Love
