It’s not a news flash that men and women think differently! If we are being honest we will never completely understand each other but if you’re going to be in a relationship with a man, some level of understanding how men tick is essential in my opinion. Ladies, if you haven’t read Steve Harvey’s books you need to. His Dating Tips and insights into men are fabulous.
While writing i talked to male friends about what women should know about men and here’s a list of things that drive men wacky about women:
Talking about Exes
Here’s a list of things they need:
To feel wanted
Men are creatures of Ego, they are taught at an early age to provide and protect and that their identity is tied up into what they do, how much they make and being a leader hence the reason men are so much more competitive than women. Imagine the pressure that goes along with that.
Men want you to know that they aren’t mind readers. You have to tell them what you want and need.
Men want you to know that when you reject them sexually, they feel rejected period.
Men want you to know they are going to look, they are visual, but that doesn’t mean they want that person.
Men want you to know that they love when they come home and you’re done up, not for a night out but that you took the time and effort to look good for them means something.
Men hate complaining. If you think about it ,we probably all do but to them, there’s nothing worse than coming home from a long day of a list of gripes.
It’s all in your approach, ask instead of demanding, precede it with an appreciation for all they do but above all be ready with that greeting hug because in your arms should be that safe place to fall.
Men want you to know that they mean what they say and that’s exactly what they mean, there are no gray areas.
Men don’t really talk about their emotions much and it isn’t that they don’t want you to maybe not so much,they tend to relay their feelings in the things they do and they want you to know that everything they do is about the life you have together.
Men want you to know they need their own space as well and that doesn’t mean they are trying to get away from you. It could be a boy’s night or anything. My husband skates, the point is we all need that me time to de- compress and de-stress, don’t take it personally.
Men’s needs aren’t all that different it’s just their brains work differently. We all need respect, trust, love! I hope these Dating Tips help you in your journey.
