She'll Feel You're Trying to Understand Her When...

  • you listen and can repeat back what she said.

  • you don't try to "fix her problems" unless she specifically asks for a solution.

  • you try to identify her feelings.

  • you never dismiss her feelings, no matter how illogical they may seem to you.

  • you say, "I appreciate your sharing that with me."

  • you don't interrupt her whe she's trying to tell you how she feels.

  • you apologize and admit you were wrong.

  • you cut her some slack during her monthly cycle.

  • you see something that needs to be done and you do it without a lot of hassle.

  • you express appreciation for all she does: "Honey, I could never do your job."

  • you pray with her and for her.

-Page 154 of "Love & Respect" by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
