Obviously he never had to deal with feelings, just facts
Men intrinsically (instinctively maybe?) want to fix things, if it's broken we can fix it, so when a woman tells us a problem, we have this burning almost overwhelming urge to fix it. Then everything is about the nail to me and I get frustrated because I want to fix but I know i'm not listening to this problem in order to fix it. I'm just there to listen. So I try to just listen and say oh you're right that must be so tough. I need to beatles and "let it be"
Don't fix it:
