    It's Official: Men Can't Read Women's Emotions

    It's Official: Men Can't Read Women's Emotions

    It's a cliché that men just don't understand women.


    Now, new research suggests men really do struggle to read women's emotions — at least from their eyes.


    The research, published Wednesday (April 10) in the journal PLOS ONE, showed that men had twice as much trouble deciphering women's emotions from images of their eyes compared with those of men. Parts of the male brain tied to emotion also didn't activate as strongly when the men looked at women's eyes.

    This is true.

    I remember early on in my marriage, just about everything I ever said was met with some sort of challenge. Even a simple opinion on something that had zero importance. Still, always the beginning of an argument. Which I would always lose.

    I bet it was 10 years later that I finally realized that she was not trying to win an argument at all, but merely trying to start a conversation. No winners or losers, just simple sharing of different viewpoints.

    After that revelation, I don't think I ever saw anything as a challenge again, and our conversations seemed to flow more easily. No one is right, no one is wrong, and no hurt feelings.

    So yes, it's true. Men do indeed have a hard time reading women. And fortunately, the one I couldn't read had enough patience to let me learn on my own.
