New research says his laptop gives him bliss. Say what?
You come home and want to talk to your guy, but he's engrossed in Facebook, email, or fantasy sports -- and he barely looks up to say hello.
Sure, you feel slighted, but new research says you shouldn't take it personally. According to experts, while both men and women like to unwind and relax, they have very different ideas of what makes for happiness.
For women, bliss means spending time with her family, and for men, it's being parked in front of the computer.
Here are some interesting stats:
• Just over half of men say happiness means surfing the Internet, playing online games or poking around on Facebook, compared to only 39% of women.
• 55% of women say eating dinner and spending time together as a family makes them happiest, compared to 45% of men.
So how can you satisfy his need to zone out and still squeeze in QT? When you come home from work, just do your own thing (i.e.: take a bubble bath, call a friend, or play with the kids). When you give him space, he'll be itching for quality time.
