Does your DH/SO listen to you when you try to tell them how your day was?

Probably not as well as he should.

Actually, he's the one who usually unloads his day's tale on me. I sometimes get the opportunity, but usually he beats me to it.

When I try tell H about something or about a conversation I've had, lately, he's been doing this arm and hand thing, like a roll over like kind of thing that signifies, "Okay, get to the point" and it drives me nuts. So, now when he does that, I just go silent and go back to whatever it was I was doing. He's slowly getting the message. I also started doing the arm/hand roll over thing to him when he starts lamenting on his day....hopefully he will get the point and be a better listener.

I'm trying to remember if he used to be a better listener and I'm fairly certain he was. Oh well, I guess this is what Girlfriends are for!

lol. I love how you're trying to break him of that habit. I hope it works.


My dh also gives me every little detail of his day.


He is a great listener usually and asks me about my day, but I tend to need to be prompted. I don't give much detail unless asked. That annoys him to no end but he's learning to ask follow-up questions rather than assume I'll just tell him everything.

For the most part he tries, but I think he's mostly uninterested so I don't tell him much except the high or low points.
