A very important difference in the different listening styles between men and women

Men listen differently than women do. Women tend to nod their head and make comments, such as “ah, uh-huh, wow, yes, right” during conversation to indicate they are listening and involved. Men tend to listen like a wall, quietly observing until the other person finishes their statement. Being sensitive to this difference in how men and women communicate (and adapting, as appropriate) will improve communication between partners.
