Hi Folks, It's been a while since I posted but I wanted to put in my .02$ on this one. Several people have been talking on conflict resolution between men in relationships. It has been noted that men are socialized differently in our culture and that this presents problems when they couple. Well in my experience and observation it seems that the gender of persons does not really matter when they need to resolve a conflict. The fact that they are both of a sentient species introduces so many variables into their personalities that saying something about them based strictly on gender is far too limiting. Conflict resolution in most cases takes listening skills and a lot of compromise. Since everyone is greatly different from everyone else on this planet it means that every situation is different and that there are no formulas or simple solutions. You simply have to play it by ear and hope and work for the best. Of course I do not claim to know everything or even a great deal on the subject but this has been my understanding of it and it has worked for me. Hope this helps.
