I feel women have more experience with things such as pain, heartbreak and many other things.

Yes - probably cause they are better at most things than men.

Generally yes, but men, it's subject matter.

Because men only listen with half an ear. Depending on what's going on around them. Women make eye contact and actually listen.

It's true because women are nurturers and therefore better listeners. My partner gets into all kinds of stupid situations to his detriment which wouldn't have happened if he had only listened.

Because most men are selective listeners. They pick and and choose what they want to hear especially if it's a woman talking to them..

I think most are, although there are exceptions. I think, in general, women are more responsive and sympathetic.

It really doesn't matter what sex. It's the personality of the person

I don’t think it depends on gender, but on personality. My husband is naturally more quiet than I am and a better listener. I have to work harder at listening than he does.

People are people. Some people are better listeners than others, regardless of gender.
