Seriously...

My ex tells me I manipulate things and twist words around... But when I ask him to answer 2 simple questions that I know the answer to...just as a test... It takes him over an hour to realize I asked 2 questions, not 1.... And if I ask him to repeat my last sentence to him, he can't repeat it.... Hmmm, do you think it's because he is already back to thinking about himself and not listening to a word I say. Like I have said before, I did get the ONE good thing from him...

    This seems to be a common problem anymore. Is it just a guy thing? Sorry you're dealing with this.

    That actually made me laugh. I think it may be a guy thing. They are terrible listeners.

        I wish I could say something nice to him or about him, but I pretty much wrote him off for even speaking to him. I'm over it. Maybe he will be a good person to someone else and he's just not the one for me! Thanks for all the support ladies! Is this what 34 feels like?

          I am sorry you are dealing with a difficult individual. I would have constant migraines from it. My husband is a terrible listener as well, so I hope it isn't a guy thing.

          But, as you said, you got one good thing from him. Your child is so beautiful, too.

            I feel like sending him my interpersonal communication skills textbook from my speech class in college for his birthday.... By the time he turns 46, he hopefully could learn something :-/

            I will say I was pretty mean to him yesterday and said some pretty mean stuff including only one good thing came out of out relationship and she smiles when she sees me every morning. Kind of mean, but for someone who likes to kick people while they are down, I don't feel bad about it and don't take anything of what I said back. I would say it was rather empowering since he has always felt like he had control over me because he makes more money than me.
