What men talk about is a long-standing topic of conversation among women. It’s always been a bit of a mystery, as what guys say they talk about is probably very different than what they actually talk about. Additionally, men have been known to sit in large groups watching a football game or playing video games without uttering a single word to one another. While it’s not necessarily important in a relationship to know what men talk about with one another, it can give you insight into his likes and dislikes as well as how he is truly feeling about a situation.
The more you know about your partner, the better you can understand why they do and say the things they do, which can save a relationship when times get a bit sticky. If you have a better understanding of your partner’s motivations, you can can empathize with them more when you get into arguments or conflicts.
So what is it exactly that guys talk about when they are with one another? While we may never have a completely clear picture of what kinds of discussions men have when no women are around, some men have given insight into what types of topics come up during conversation. One thing to note is that conversation between people, in general, has changed quite a bit over the last decade or two. People rely much more on technology to do the talking for them, rather than actually have an in-depth conversation with each other. Men are no different and much of the time rather than talk to one another in person, they opt for the digital route.
If they do actually get together for a game or other event, there are several things that normally come up during conversation. One thing that men usually talk about are sports, television shows, movies, or other forms of entertainment. Most men will admit to the fact that the majority of their conversations with other men aren’t very deep and that they don’t talk much about their feelings or emotions.
The one time when this seems to be untrue is when men go out for drinks and they have one too many cocktails. Sometimes when men have been drinking, their more emotional side will come out and they may want to have deeper conversations with other men – though most men won’t necessarily admit to this, nor will they get into detail about the types of emotional things they talk about when intoxicated.
When guys get together, their conversations may not be that deep, but they do share a lot about one another in their own way. Most men will admit that there is somewhat of an unspoken guy code that allows men to talk about seemingly insignificant things while leaving it open for emotional interpretation. Men do also talk about sex a fair amount, but it’s not necessarily as much of a focus as many women tend to believe. If anything, they leave women out of the conversation for the most part, likely in order to eliminate the need to talk about their emotions.
