Speak in Headlines
Women can often be too detail oriented. Men really don’t care what you have to say. They love you, but they don’t want to hear every detail. Give them the 140-character or 10-second-or-less version. Speak in headlines as if you were reading the headline in the newspaper to him. Trust me on this one ladies, he will hear you much better this way.
