Am I just a toy to you?
Women show that they care but letting a person elaborate on their emotions, vent, get it all out and work everything through. When a friend or our partner comes to us to talk, we facilitate the furthering of that conversation. Men show they care by taking our minds off of our problems. We’re sad, so they try to make it better by making us laugh, or trying to have sex with us, or putting on a TV show we like. This can make us feel like we’re a “toy” to men because they don’t want to be there in our bad times. Their method of making us feel better can look like their method of avoiding tough subjects.
