ADD manifests differently in women than it does men and boys. Women and girls are more often affected by the inattentive type of ADD. So you can't really generalize about symptoms for everyone who has ADD. However, I don't see how this relates to the OP or this thread, since there was no mention made of ADD. It just seems they have some communications issues and areas in which they are not as compatible as others.
