You’ve probably uttered them before, but you’ll never want to use them again: “Honey, we need to talk.” Oftentimes, women use these words because they want to feel heard and connected. You probably think that those five words will bring you closer together and help resolve any problems you may be facing. However, when a man hears those words, they are like nails on a chalkboard.
