    If I start the conversation with "Beer" or "Wow, look at those boobs!" I am sure to have his instant attention

    Seriously, there's a time to have conversations - and in the middle of the Collingwood Grand Final isn't a gat time to say "Hey I'm pregnant!", whereas there is never a right time to have some conversations, they just have to be had.

    I try to pick or make the right time and most of the time MOTH does listen and take notice.

    Not at all. He always insists that I haven't told him things when I am 100% certain that I have, I hate it.
    If I really want him to listen then I can drop the f bomb and that gets his attention for a few seconds.
    It's like he lives in his own little world most of the time.

    Quite often, no. It's like he listens, nods and says yep. Then will completely disregard what I've said or do what he said he wouldn't. Selective hearing I think

    Yes. His problem is that I don't listen to him, especially when I'm on BH.

    Haha - same! DH will talk for a while and then go "Ohhhh no. She's lost in BH land..."

    I also have a major problem listening to him answer, after I have asked him to explain something to me! It irritates me so much, as I really want to know the answer! I do the same with directions - nod, go 'u huh', and really my brain is having a Homer Simpson/ monkey with cymbals moment.

    But, yes. DH is a great listener.

    I think that my DH is a much better listener than I am.

    I tend to interupt all the time (comes from my job I think) and I really have to concentrate to stop myself from doing this.

    Yes I am fantastic at listening to myself and I always agree with what I have to say. Quite often I don't do what I've promised myself though...
