I hear this , as complaint a lot & honestly, I can not say that that is something that I really have noticed as being a problem.. Tho I do like to solve things, I still I do not notice this as being a problem particular to MEN.

All men possess' an analytical part of the brain that thinks about problems and finds solutions. When some men hear a problem, they cannot help but try to solve it.
EX: If a girl is spouting about problems at work, a man may try and come up with a solution, something she could do to make the situation better, rather than be a sympathetic ear for her to vent to.
Girl: Honey, I'm so strung out! Susan, is acting all bitchy and won't talk to me!
Boy: Well, maybe you should talk to her, and try and reconcile things.
Boy: (nodding consolingly) It's okay baby, you're home now.
While this is a rather bad example, it shows the difference in solving (1) or listening (2). However most such situations are not quite so easily solved.0
