Bill Clinton was lying – he really DIDN’T feel your pain. That’s because guys don’t feel their partners’ pain nearly as much as their female partners feel their pain.
Guys really don’t give a crap!
(NEWSER) – Think your man doesn’t feel your pain? It might not be in your head after all. Scientists in Australia say men simply aren’t very empathetic when their partners are blue—and they have a national survey to prove it, reports the Herald Sun. Researchers interviewed 20,000 Australians and asked them about “negative shocks in their lives, such as the death of a friend, losing a job, or becoming ill,” says researcher Paul Frijters. Their conclusion? Women are a lot better at this whole empathy thing than men are—they react to their partners’ trauma about 24% as intensely as they would if it happened to them, compared to 7% for men. “It’s not that men are cold, emotionless fish, but we found they were much less affected by what happened to their partner,” Frijters says.
