Relationships can oftentimes be looked at as more complex and challenging than playing the stock market, choosing the right numbers on your Powerball lottery ticket, and deciding where to retire to one day.
Yes, relationships between the two sexes is what, in many cases, keeps psychologists in business–albeit a little nuts themselves at times.
As a woman, what frustrates you most about the other sex? Is it not enough attention, lack of trust, feeling like you two cannot always communicate?
Whatever the issues that couples have, it is not uncommon for a woman to feel her significant other is dropping the ball more times than he catches it. In fact, some men never even get to finish the game.
So, what are some things that your boyfriend won’t always rush to tell you?
Among the items:
He loves you – It is the greatest sin a man can make–well, except for fooling around with one of your friends. Women (many men, too) want to feel loved and appreciated. While your guy more than likely loves you for who you are, the time you spend together, and what you’ve brought to his life, he fails to mention it enough times to satisfy you. For
many ladies, this gaffe can eventually lead to major relationship drama, something NO man wants.
He doesn’t like your best girlfriend – Whether it is out of jealousy or just a real dislike for your best gal, your man is unlikely to mention your number one lady in bad terms. By not doing so, however, he is letting the pot stir–a pot that can sometimes overheat. He starts wanting to spend less time with you because your gal pal is oftentimes getting in the way. In the end, it almost seems like you are better off in a relationship with her than you are with him.
He doesn’t like your family – Bringing home the “new” guy for the first time always proves to be an adventure for women. While the guy may hit it off with your mom, he and dad are not so close, or vice-versa. Whatever the scenario may be, tension is in the air because one or both of your parents are not getting favorable reviews in your man’s
eyes. The last thing your guy will do, however, is rock the boat and tell you such a thing.
He’s intimidated that you make more money – For many guys, their lives and feeling good about themselves revolve around their jobs. When they find out that their significant other makes more money at work than they do, it can set off all kinds of fireworks. While any couple’s goal should be working together so that both are professionally happy, given the fact that this tidbit of information should make the relationship better, too many guys will keep their mouths shut and simmer with the knowledge that they don’t like you outperforming them when it comes to paycheck time.
He doesn’t think you are fat (or maybe he does think you’re fat…) – Talk about a potential landmine. Whenever a guy is asked by his lady if he thinks she weighs a few too many pounds, they probably wish they had an instant case of laryngitis. There is simply no way a guy can win this debate, so it’s best for them to keep their mouths closed. Even if the man says his woman looks fantastic, he should be prepared for the possibility of her not fully buying it; hence, he better expect this subject to not go away.
He was checking out that other woman - If guys’ eyes never roamed from time to time, most men would both be happy and sad. They would be delighted by the fact that their woman is not always questioning them, asking if they were looking at another female. They’d be sad, however, because they’d miss a quick glimpse of an attractive woman walking by. For most men, mastering the art of the quick “sneak and peek” is the best way to handle this hot-ticket item.
He’s afraid of marriage - Whether he will admit it or not, your guy does shake in his boots at times when the ‘M’ word comes up. Not only is it the ultimate commitment of a lifetime, but it also involves being dragged into lots of planning and shopping. In the event that kids are in the plans, too, your guy could quite easily get a case of cold feet. Women are best advised to approach the marriage issue carefully with their man, letting him know he’s not signing his life away to military duty or prison.
For many men, finding the woman of their dreams is a blessing, something that they should never take for granted. For other guys, always remember rule #101 of any relationship: The woman is always right!
