Men go to their caves while women talk

For years, we've been trying to get men to open up and communicate.  It has become obvious that most will not be so open to it because it is against their nature to do so.  Women on the other hand, we are more open to talk to one another and "get it out." 

So where's the happy medium?  How do we know when to let one go to their cave and let the other talk and express their feelings?  I believe we have to understand one another's nature.  For instance, when a man says "I don't want to talk about it right now," how do we as women perceive that?  Most times we may think him to be upset but in actuality he is just in need of time to work a thing out in his mind.  When a woman says "talk to me" how do men perceive that?  Most times men may think she wants to nag but in actuality, she may just need an understanding or want to see how she can help.  So now what?  If a man is pursued into his cave, the deeper he will go.  If a woman is ignored, her mind may begin to wonder. 

The questions tonight are? 

As a woman, how do you ignore the instinct to follow the man to his cave?

How do you learn to understand one another before conflict arises?

How do you assure self to not allow your mind to wonder to a place that may not even be the situation?

How do you  read between the lines of the one you love?

Join us tonight for Real Talk Radio with your host, LaTonya Washington; CoHost Tshombe Tshanti, Doc on Hand Dr. Monica and Chat Room Moderator, J Nikol.
