You’re trying to understand her and give her what she wants and every time you think you nailed it, she complains or it isn’t “good enough” cue her ‘I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed’ sigh. You are really trying and it isn’t seen as ‘good enough’. Or maybe she won’t let you in or ask for help.
I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you are partially responsible for this pattern occurring. The bad news is that most women don’t know how to interact with men so both partners end up feeling respected, instead of emasculated. Together we’ll work on how you can interact with women so that you get more of what you want, they get more of what they want, and you actually enjoy being the provider.
the bottom line
YOU WANT TO BE APPRECIATED
Maybe you feel smothered when someone tries to get too close… They say you aren’t “emotionally available”. Maybe you struggle with having alone time and want to spend all your time with the person you’re dating and they’re getting overwhelmed… You like them and you don’t want to mess it up.
Are you sick of hearing “I just think it’s funny how…”?
Are you tired of feeling emasculated in your relationship?
sick of being single?
TRY THERAPY FOR MEN
Men and women have different, and often opposing, experiences and expectations of how relationships are supposed to progress and what commitment means.
You do not have to be an expert on emotions to be successful in dating. You do however need to know that you indeed have feelings and how to control and access them.
Let’s work together on the stuff that is getting in the way of you wanting to be healthily close to a romantic partner.
