A realization

What I am going to describe is a small incident which shocked me recently. There has always been a notion that men in general express less and when women talk or convey something it may or may not get registered. It has always been portrayed like that. After observing my male friends I was also under this impression that probably everything we say doesn't get registered or even if they pretend that they have got it inside they may forget it later. Couple of days back I was having a chat with one of my friends after a long time. During the conversation my freind narrated to me ceratin instances which were quite faint in my memory. What made me spellbound was that even before I could ask something, he gave me certain instances in such intricate detail that forced me to sit back and think and just wonder.......

After sitting and reading the chat messages for half an hour I realized and exclaimed to myself: " That means all these years what all I spoke and did is still afresh in his memory and I underestimated him probably!"

In short, from the pages of my personal experiences : I realized that men/guys are good listeners and good retainers too. It's just that they don't feel like expressing these emotions and feelings and waste time as the women/girls do generally.

Well, Archu, not all guys remember everything... Trust me... :P And hey, what gals do is not a waste of time.. Its their way of expression :) As for guys, they prefer to hide emotions, cuz tats how they deal with it...
This whole thing is actually evolutionary in origin, if u get me.. :D

Good observation...
I think it depends on individual, i felt those who r a bit more emotional by nature has good EQ. but in expressing the feelings(Articulations) guys are ofcourse lagging behind.
