Women Care More Than Men
How many times have you found yourself listening to your girlfriend talk about her problems while you pretend to listen? Don’t lie to us. Indeed, a study by Griffith University found that women cared more about their partner’s problems and also displayed more empathy than men displayed toward their partners. Interestingly, the male capacity for empathy was higher when it was an event that directly pertained to them. In other words, this study would suggest that females should vent to their girlfriends because their boyfriends simply didn’t care about their problems.
However, it would unfair not to admit that these results did change if the couple had children and that men displayed more empathy. Nevertheless, when your girlfriend asks you why you don’t care about her problems, you can tell her that you’re basically wired that way and can’t help it (and then proceed to direct her to this article).
