Ok, so it’s nothing new that men and women sometimes want different things from a relationship, and women are much better at expressing feelings. Psychologically speaking, it makes perfect sense. From an early age, women learn to cultivate close, intimate relationships and they learn what makes them feel cared for and understood. Male friendships don’t usually have the same depth and level of closeness, so men typically enter the realm of emotional awareness later in life, usually when they form relationships with women. So we’ve made things easy. Below are the top 5 things guys want from you, but will probably never ask for.
Men love compliments as much as women do, but women get a lot more of them. Think about it, when a guy posts a picture on Facebook or goes out with friends, he doesn’t have a number of people commenting on how great he looks. When it comes to his physical appearance, you’re really his only source of compliments, so load him up! Men like it when you offer frequent assurance to them on their career choices, sexual prowess, attractiveness and efficacy.
2. When you ask for his advice
Men love it when you ask them for advice. They have an overwhelming need to feel useful, to feel like they have something of value to offer. This is true in all areas of his life and especially so in relationships. He wants to feel like he is adding to your life in a meaningful way, and you can help him feel this way by soliciting his advice and opinions.
Believe it or not, your guy is starving for your approval. When you are proud of him and you show it, it is a huge driving force for him. One of the greatest feelings to a man is feeling like he has a woman in his corner. He feels good knowing that you will be there for him, no matter what!
4. An independent woman
It’s not true that men are looking for weaker women who will make them feel smarter. It’s actually quite the contrary. Men want women who inspire them. Good men are not intimated by independence. Don’t act as if your whole life revolves around him. That being said, number 5 is obvious. A man also wants his space.
If you are searching for a good way of ending your relationship with him, there is no better way to do that than to suffocate him with your presence or with behaviors that show signs of jealousy. A lot of men say that they need their breathing space. Women like to talk to things out, men like solving things alone. So, let him breathe, and he will love you for it.
