depends on when you talk to us, and how much you talk really.
One old gf i had would just talk talk talk talk talk talk talk, i go in to the classic, huh yes dear, ok, whatever you want dear, and i did not hear a thing she said.
when it comes to men, just the facts. and nothing but the facts, those we will tend to remember. also know that most men will try to fix whatever is broke, no matter what it is, that just the way it is.. We sometimes have a hard time, with the feeling thing.
And if your dad is older, like mine is, he seems to forget what you tell then next day.
sorry, see even in my post i was trying to help fix it
