There is a female behavior which distresses me greatly. I think of it as the “word ambush”, or it might be called the “word dump.”
It’s when a woman talks, and something inside her comes unstuck. You acknowledge and respond to what’s she’s saying, but she keeps going. She overwhelms you with words, beyond your ability to think and respond in any way other than “Yes” or “OK.” She may be openly angry, but even if she’s not she’s behaving aggressively. Women call this “letting you know how I feel.” That’s not true though, and it’s not simply communication because she keeps saying the same things over and over, and not waiting for or even wanting any response.
My best guess is it’s a nervous, agitated behavior like a dog barking continuously. It’s vaguely compulsive, they seem to just say everything that comes into their head, or even some things that don’t even make it to that point.
I had a big fight with my foreign girlfriend over this. I told her she needed to talk less and listen more. She went completely to pieces over this. I don’t know a better way of dealing with this but this has caused me problems before so I’m going to have to figure something out.
