To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little, To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and even if you don't understand her at all. I have read this in a magazine..do you believe in this.. do you think this works in a relationship.. I believe that in order to love a woman you must understand him a lot.. Because most woman have mood swings...

Men and women cannot understand each other because their psychologies are totaly different. As afr as love is concerned, that is because of the attraction which people naturally have for the opposite gender. If men and women understood each other, then the relations between men and women would nver be under such a strain.

Well there is some truth to that saying. Well men in general are not very emotional when they express how they appreciate or love someone. That is why we are mostly misunderstood as being uncaring. But in reality most men do appreciate and care what women provide. On the other hand it is the opposite that most women to look for in a relationship. This is where conflict occurs most often in a relationship and the only solution to that one is to lower each others expectation about what each can give into the relationship. It is not really one party to bow down to the other party but both should compromise for each other's benefit.

From what you have written here I would suggest it was written by a man who is not really interested in getting to know women. People like to go on about women having mood swings and not being able to understand them but it is such a generalized statement about half the human race and is inaccurate. Some women and some men have mood swings only some not most. I believe that women do need to understand men a lot, well their partner not all men, but they also need to love them a lot. I also think that men need to understand women a lot, not all women just their partner, and love her a lot. If they do not understand each other and love each other then the relationship will not work. So I do not really agree with the magazine. It is not that hard to understand your partner. All you need to do is communicate to each other so you learn about each other and learn their likes, dislikes and needs. I am not saying that you need to understand everything about them but if you do not understand them a lot then problems could well develop later. When you first marry or live together you tend to overlook things that you do not understand and if you do not learn to understand them early on then they could later become rifts that seem insurmountable. Communication is the key to solving this problem and keeping your relationship healthy.

Men and women are easy to understand because they both want the same thing. One just needs to interpret their words and actions according to some code-breaking rules. Thee is a code in the way that people talk and act and it can be understood by close observation. Cheers!!
