Words of Love?

Ever had the feeling that men and women speak different languages?

The good news is you're not alone. Anyone who has ever been in a relationship will know that making yourself understood with your other half isn't always easy.

Thankfully, help is now at hand with a new book which reveals some of the differences in how men and women communicate.

Himglish & Femalese takes a humorous look at the minefield of relationships, and offers some helpful advice to those struggling to get their point across.

Here's a look at some of the tips.

Various studies have found the average man utters a staggering 65 per cent fewer words than the average woman each day.

With this kind of strict limitation, it makes sense that men employ more direct forms of speech than their female counterparts.

You don't want to mess around with superfluous adjectives and fancy metaphors with such a tiny supply of words.

Women, on the other hand, have utterances to spare, and so can splash their word-wealth about like a celebrity heiress doling out pink champagne.

Figuring out how to operate on a date is a challenge, and many men would benefit from knowing that even if your date earns more money than you, asked you out or kissed you first, they would still prefer you to take the lead on a first date.

This isn't because women are retrograde anti-feminists. It's because nobody likes to be in charge on a first date. The same is true of men, as first dates are scary.

The Office
Despite so many of us pursuing office-based romances, the consequences of being discovered remain quite serious, and those consequences are often weighted against the female.

The woman who engages in an office romance and gets caught will most often gain a reputation for being unprofessional.

In contrast, the status of the man she was found on the photocopier with will not be negatively affected.

He'll often be on the receiving-end of some congratulatory backslapping, since sexual double standards are not left at the office threshold.

As a result of all our attempts to conform, many of us engage in complicated pretences in the course of our courtships.

For example, mathematicians have demonstrated that when comparing the number of sexual partners men and women have had, it's logically impossible for men to have had significantly more partners than women. In other words - most of us are lying. Men are beefing their numbers up and women are reducing theirs.

For the woman who is lying awake at night wondering if the man in her life will commit to her, there is something to be said for checking you're both on the same page.

It can be helpful to do this whether you're a guy resistant to settling down, or a girl who has already set a date for her wedding but still needs a groom.

That's because there are few things worse than discovering you and your partner are in two totally different relationships, albeit with each other.

Domestic Bliss

Our expectations of how the home is run have changed significantly in the last few years.

Last year, an American survey found women were taking charge of more household decisions and, in some cases, were even getting to share the remote control.

But in an interesting twist, men are happy to take on household duties.

While everyone likes it when their romance is defined by smooth sailing, it's actually very healthy and necessary to have the occasional sparring match with your other half.

Choosing to deal with minor disagreements by ignoring them may seem like the easy solution, but you can actually be doing yourselves a disservice.

That's because sorting through the occasional bit of dissent over whether to buy organic carrots gives you useful experience of disputing and reconciling. So when big disagreements appear, you'll be familiar with how each of you deal with it.
