You never listen to me......

...sorry what did you say?

The biggest letdown in any relationship is when one person is talking and the other one isn't listening. Trust me, it's not about the act of you not hearing the words that trickle from my mouth but it's like you don't care what I have to say.

There are 5 basic types of listening but for most of us I think we only consume 2. Of course that is very dependent on what the other person is talking about.

1) Informative Listening
This type happens whenever we are trying to obtain just the facts. You know it's like when we men try to tell you about all the cool gadgets that come with Nissan 300ZX and the only thing that your spouse hears are the price and monthly payments. Or whenever we guys are watching the television and you are trying to explain that you need more attention and the only word we pick out is "sex" and "tonight" after saying "no sex tonight, I am just not in the mood".

2) Relationship Listening
Most of us men are not born with this but some of us do acquire it only after many hard years of training and focus. Women however pass this down thru generation after generation. It's a venomous sack that's located near the third eye in the back of the cranium. Sadly, there is no antidote for it but science continues to search for it everyday.

3) Appreciative Listening
How can you not appreciate Van Halen’s Eruption at 100 decibels? The same as to why I cannot appreciate Michael Bolton at 2 decibels.

4) Critical Listening
Take your pick, E! Entertainment News or PBS?

5) Discriminative Listening
No matter if you turn on the faucet or the bathroom fan, someone is going to hear it. Or when someone is constantly saying, “you know” after every sentence.
