    Default Do you feel your partner listens to you?

    As the title says, do you feel listened to in your relationship?

    And if not, can you think of ways that this situation could improve? Either by you doing something, your partner doing something or a joint effort?

    Nah he doesn't listen to me at all!

    I've tried a few times to have a conversation with him and ask him to make more of an effort to be a more considerate husband and father. The conversations always go my way.. He never argues, he always says he'll try harder, he never disputes the fact that I do all the work and that he needs to help me more... but once the conversations over nothing changes. *shrugs* not sure what more I can do really.

    Yes, he listens to me. He may not always get what i'm going on about but he always hears me out and tries to understand/offer solutions.
    We are very open and honest with other.

    I think he is not listening... but really he is just pretending he is not listening...

    My husband listens, he just doesn't take it in. He can almost always tell me word for word what I've said, he just doesn't act on what I say.

    Just wanted to say I could have written this post! How frustrating is it!! Sometimes I feel like i'm banging my head on a brick wall.

    He listens, but whether it registers I dunno.
    Lol, it depends on HOW I communicate with him that will depend on whether things get resolved/worked on. I find talking through text works for us, coz I don't get too emotional (well my emotion doesn't get in the way) and I can convey my message more appropriately, and he can listen and 'get me' easier when I'm not crying the whole time.

    Sometimes.

    I don't think he does all the time, or he just hears part of it and assumes he knows what's coming and tunes out. It really bugs me because I think he thinks that "it's all Stacey's mental health issues..." and just blames everything on that... and even if it is because of mental health, it makes it no less of a real issue TO ME... so I had it getting fobbed off for that.

    I think he listens, but just doesn't GET me... so doesn't really understand hte point of what I'm saying... so the message is lost.

    Never. He just isn't capable.
