Every man has met a woman who has tried to change him. Women have motherly instincts that want to change men because they feel that we should be better.

And this is not just your perception or your partner's perception; it's a proven fact. Studies show that on average we speak 150 words a minute but we listen at the rate 700 words a minute.
