When I discuss a situation with someone I'm almost always looking for an opinion or advice. Sometimes I'll talk to a few people to get different points of view. My weakness lies making decisions based on logic rather than emotion. The head's almost always right, but the heart is usually easier to follow.
It's widely accepted that when men talk to others about their problems they're looking for advice, whereas when women discuss their problems they're more commonly wanting to be heard than looking for a solution.
What's your opinion on this? When you talk to someone about your troubles are you looking for advice, or just an ear to listen?
