Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti
Understanding and Delighting in Your Differences - Bill and Pam Farrel
I really enjoyed the audio version of this book! It is read by Both Bill and Pam which is different than most audio relationship books I have listened to thus far. They keep it fun and informative and give plenty of real-life stories as examples of what to do and sometimes more importantly what not to do!
I totally resonated with one story they talked about that goes like this…wife walks into the living room where the husband is half-watching a game but mostly staring into space. The wife asks the husband “What’s on your mind?” husband responds “nothin’.” The wife thinks the husband just doesn’t want to talk, open up, share what is on his mind or is his hiding something but…the husband is "actually" in his thinking about nothing-just chillin’-vegging box. That is SO me sometimes! Haha!
Most men and women process life differently. Men typically process life like waffles. They think and act by moving from box to box. They enter a box, size up the single problem, and formulate a solution.
Most women process life like a plate of spaghetti. Each issue is like an individual noodle that touches every other noodle on the plate. They find it natural to multitask.
I can tell you that 99% of the men and women I’ve discussed this concept with 100% agree.
