I have to stifle it sometimes when DH wants to complain about something, and just set myself to "receive" instead of "send" mode.
This is something that men fall into very easily. A few days ago I was thinking about how annoyed I get when I am telling some woman something that is bothering my mind and she gives me suggestions. I don't care if she is god and her suggestions are brilliant, I am just not interested, at least when I am telling my woes. So I decided to try to give them more of what I would like, and less of what I too often give. Not an easy task for an A-hole!
