I know one should not be her psychotherapist and start to solve all her problems, cause thats a major turn off for women.

A key thing to understand is that women dont talk about problems in order to solve them. They just want to express what they feel and feel acknowledged.

Let her talk and periodically ask her reaffirming questions like "that mustve been hard", "really?", "Howd that happen" And so on. Make some comments. Its not hard - they just want to vent.

However if she talks about things she really wants to solve, then you can come up with a solution if you feel like it. You can tell because such a subject small or large may be presented as a mutual problem/question, rather than just hers, and she'll probably ask you outright what to do rather than just vent.

It is a turn off and they don't know it consciously. What happens is they start to subconsciously start to loathe it. Then out comes the bytchy woman phase.
I went through this some years back. Learned my lesson. You just have to be blunt with them.
" Listen honey, im not a psychologist and i understand you have problems, It happens. I cant fix your problems there are psychologists out there for this kind of thing.. All i can do is listen but it gets annoying,"

The cure for these women are to try to avoid them altogether. First sign of this as a pattern i would get the F out.

Sounds harsh but there are women who are addicted to this kind of shyt. I will listen when its required but it doesn't take much to know you have one of these. I like to be with positive women. Debbie downers suk.

I see it from different point of view, if it's someone you are interested in and she only talks about issues in her life, basically she is just using you as a male girlfriend to complain and have small interest in you.
If she was interested in you she wouldn't tell you any major "issues" in her life, she will try to impress you and show her good side.

If it's a woman friend then it's ok to listen reaffirm and etc, basically what AttackFormation said, just like like a regular friend.

If she’s just venting she can do that with someone else. Like a girlfriend. Maybe sympathize in the way that attack formation said then ask her what her friends suggest. encourage her to talk to them about it. If she pouts that she wants to talk to you say you really don’t know what to say and don’t want to say the wrong thing (;) but would sure like to make her feel better with (food, sex, one of her favourite activities etc). If she still pouts then be more direct so you set the frame that you ain’t putting up with that and you gave her options to talk to someone else or let you make her feel better with a fun distraction.

Don’t try to solve stuff either.

I had an ex boyfriend who vented a lot. The occasional vent is natural but it got old very quickly. I didn’t expect him to be happy to lucky mr positive man 24/7 but like someone said above it is a downer if that goes on and you are typically a positive person. Finally I just kept asking him, “so what are you going to do about it?”.

From my experience people like to vent about the same crap that they never do anything about, otherwise there would be no reason to vent about it.

Act like you're uninterested and bored, and change topic of the conversation, lead it.

Let her talk about their problem to her friends, orbiters and emotional tampon/s, she gotta talk of their problems with them, not with you

When she is with you she gotta think she wants to please you sexually, her imagination gotta run amok thinking of you, you gotta have fun with her, you gotta excite her.

Otherwise you'll get in the friend-zone, don't get in it

Yeah this. Depends on mood, but if I'm not in the mood I change the subject, If I'm in the mood then I take the piss. Either works well.

I have a tendency to just respond with a smile and something like 'yeah but did you die?'. An absurd/funny response is a valid answer to bitching for the sake of bitching. If someone complains all day long then they're not worth your time.

You shouldn't talk about her problems in first place, if you get there, you're doing something wrong beforehand.

Listen if you want to, it’s a great source of amusement. Women do vent frequently, but No advice given unless it’s asked for…

Does patiently listening to them turn them off?

Chronic complainers are "off limits". I will usually not listen or try to console anybody who complains, but I especially will not listen to a woman complain about the ex(s).

This includes ex-husbands and ex-BFs.

In my mind, "red flags" arise when a woman complains, especially about her ex. It tells me that they prefer to blame rather than hold themselves accountable. I have no time or desire to listen to it.

Here's how I deal with it:

"Please don't mention your ex to me."

It is that simple. I am that direct.

If she pouts about my being direct, I will leave her on the spot. She is not worth keeping around, in my opinion.

The ones who cease complaining are potential keepers.

Wouldn’t do that either.

Even when asked, NEVER offer advice. Just listen to everyone’s problem like a therapist.
