Understanding the Minds of Men
There are seven misunderstandings about men that seem to cause quite a bit of mischief in relationships. That means there are a lot of things that women don’t understand about men!
Men Need to Be Touched… Just Ignore the Tent Pole if You’re Not in the Mood for Camping
In relationships, sex with a man is often equated to the importance of friendship, love, or even the air he breathes. However, women grow tired of this comparison, so I think it is about time you understand that it is not just about the sex. Men from all walks of life crave to be touched, kissed, snuggled, and cuddled. If our hormones get the best of us, and Uncle Peppy comes to visit; that shouldn’t make you avoid physical intimacy. Men do have an off switch, even though we may try to convince you otherwise.
Why He Hates “The Talk.”
It’s not that guys aren’t interested in making our relationships better; we just understand these so-called relationship talks to be a chance to complain about a problem (we most likely caused), rather than the opportunity to grow closer. Whenever you need to talk about something important to your guy, ask to spend time together (preferably doing a side-by-side activity, such as taking a walk or drive). Don’t mention anything about talking, and just causally strike up a conversation that will wind around to the topic you need to get off your chest.
Throw a Monkey a Banana, and He’ll Eat it… Throw Your Guy One, and He’ll Peel it for You
Men are problem solvers conditioned to listen to women actively, which means his cogwheels are rotating, attempting to find the solution to all your woes. This is why we may seem so unsympathetic to your day, because what we are focused on is getting to the bottom of your unhappiness. This is a compliment, as it means we like you and we want to help!
When He’s Licking His Wounds
When an animal is injured, it will wander away to lick its wounds, and attempt to heal itself. When men retreat to their cave, this is essentially what they’re doing. Women often equate this lack of communication as meaning he is not allowing her to share in his day. If a man doesn’t have a story he feels is worth telling, or is afraid you’ll think he is less of a man because of a problem he’s facing, he may withdraw. You don’t want to push him for answers, nor ignore this red flag. The best thing to do is acknowledge something is wrong, and offer to be there when he’s ready to talk.
Boys Will Be Boys
Guys are rarely insensitive to your needs out of disrespect. Men can look at a pile of dishes on the counter, and see right through to the peanuts on the other side. They will look directly at their crumpled undershorts on the floor, and use their x-ray vision to notice the golf clubs sitting in the corner of the garage. A guy’s priorities are different from women. The good news is that men are trainable using positive reinforcement, positive influence, and direct communication.
Guys may seem to put their needs before yours, and this is because we sometimes do. Boys are raised to do whatever it takes to succeed; with the understanding that it is okay to snag the last helping of mashed potatoes, and falling asleep after an orgasm is as much a compliment to the chef, as an obnoxious burp after dinner. A mann can adapt to a more equal relationship, but just understand he’ll have to work at it.
It’s Either Me or the Dog?
Men can become jealous when your attention is diligently focused elsewhere. When he seems to be irritated with your friends, a house pet, or even your own children, he may be telling you that he misses some of that attention you used to reserve for him. Women are good at focusing on what needs to be done for the greatest benefit to the family. However, sometimes this means allowing the relationship to linger, simply because she does not see it as the priority at the moment. Take time to make your guy feel special, and he won’t find it necessary to complete for your attention. Want to make your guy feel special, but not sure how?
