What is the expression? "Communication is key in any relationship"? lol ! ~ Anyway, there are several ways this could be interpreted. Could be said men have lower expectations than women; men don't analyze spoken words from their girlfriend/loved one/wife as much; or, as the ladies are probably thinking, that men are stupid and do not think. : /
If someone breaks up with you, just remeber this. No boy who is too stupid to realize how perfect you are should not be cried over. He needs to know that you are better off without him. You are perfect, and don't let anyone tell you different.
