Because women overanalyse everything

woman in pain

Women read too much into everything. This comes from doing nothing productive with your brain, but even the busiest woman will still take time to indulge in a mental orgy of analysis over certain situations, on some occasions.

And please don’t think this is just about their relationships with their man. Every single relationship will be over analysed by a woman, especially if it has gone badly.

It is not unusual to find a woman, speaking in a corner of a cafe with her friend in a fevered passion, about something that someone did to her years ago. The friend will show the patience of a saint, because she is expecting her friend to show the same patience when she sits and overanalyse her situation in her turn.

Partially this is because women think they are so intuitive, and they like to look ‘below the surface’ on what might be ‘going wrong’ with the person who wronged them. They like to move to the next rung in their spiritual ladder by thinking about the possible motivations, over and over again of the person who wronged them. They will talk and talk and overanalyse until they feel better about the entire situation. However this won’t last long. It will be no time at all, and they will feel very bad again, and need to go over and over the same story till they can feel better.

Only time will put an end to the introspection over that one particular anecdote. They will most certainly never talk their way into the solution, unless of course they see a professional therapist.

In romance novels, the ‘talk’ does cure. Things are resolved with conversation. Friends have brilliant insights, and lovers attentive ears. Women find that each problem is solved with the first round of analysis and they have no need for indulgences in anymore.
