Today marks the end of an era for Feminine 1st.
It also marks the start of a new exciting time ahead.
Today’s newsletter tells you all about what’s changing, why and how…and how a revelation for me could also be a revelation for you…so I highly recommend grabbing a cup of tea and having a read when it’s delivered to your inbox later today.
The short and sweet version is that today is the last day that the weekly Feminine 1st videos will be available to anyone who isn’t a member of the Feminine 1st Family.
The good news is that if you want to know more, and want to take advantage of the special introductory offer open only to a select group of people until midnight on Friday you can find out all of the details here.
Why do you need to know how to speak ‘man language’?
So as today will be the last weekly video that is available to non-members, I wanted to make it a particularly important one.
One of the main challenges in any kind of relationship, but especially that between a man and a woman, is communication.
A survey conducted by Your Tango last year shared that the number one reason for divorce is communication problems…and it’s not just marriages where this causes trouble.
The problem? Because we are all using the same words, the same dialogue, the same phrases…we believe we’re speaking the same language.
The reality is that we’re not.
Men and women have fundamentally different ways of communicating, the meaning we associate with certain words and phrases can be at odds and we get frustrated when we don’t feel that we’re being understood.
So if you don’t know how to speak ‘man language’ you might as well be speaking Mandarin to a Frenchman…
So what is ‘man language’?
In today’s video I give you an overview of the difference between ‘man language’ and ‘woman language’.
There is much more detail I could go into about the certain buzz words that resonate more with men than women, noticing when he’s in the mode where ‘man language’ is essential and also the difference in how men and women communicate and process information…but I’ll save that for another time.
Today is all about awareness.
The most important thing for you to know about man language is that it exists…in the same way that woman language does too.
That just because you’re both speaking English, or French, or Italian or Dutch, does not mean you’re saying and hearing the same thing.
We all have the ability to speak both, but there is one that is our ‘native tongue’ and one that takes a little more effort on our part, to speak and to understand.
There are a plethora of ‘funnies’ that do the rounds every now and again making jokes about the differences between what women say or mean, or what men and women mean when they say the same thing, like the examples I’ve included here.
The reason that people find them funny is because we all recognise an element of truth in them.
So today I want to share with you how important understanding the difference between man language and woman language is…
So why do women need to speak ‘man language’?
The simple answer is…they don’t.
No-one needs to speak any language they don’t want to.
Women don’t need to speak man language. Men don’t need to speak woman language.
…as long as we’re happy to live with the communication problems in relationships.
You don’t need to speak man language at all…but if you want to communicate something important to a man who is important to you…what reason is there not to?
…and the same goes for men.
Because the same principles apply for men communicating with women as for women communicating with men.
At the end of the day if we want to communicate something to someone else, no matter who they are, where they’re from or what language they speak, and them understanding what we’re saying is important to us, then it’s in OUR interests to use THEIR language 🙂
So the question is, do you want to learn to speak man language, or not? The choice is yours…
