Understanding Men Doesn’t Have to Be Hard!
As women, we’re pretty well accustomed to hearing how hard we are to understand. The funny thing is, though, that people forget to mention how men are complicated creatures as well! As women, we know we want to feel loved and cherished in a relationship, and we assume that’s easy enough to translate, but it can be difficult to determine what a man wants in return.
If you’ve ever caught yourself wondering just what his body language is saying, what he meant by that smile, why he reacted the way he did, or how to possibly understand what he wants, remember there’s no need to complicate things. It’s perfectly normal to be filled to the brim with questions regarding men. They can be so hard to understand!
But men can also be incredibly easy to understand.
You just have to learn about them!
Here are three things to consider if you’re hoping to understand men better:
1. Men Want To Be Loved
Sometimes it can feel like men don’t care about love or relationships, but the truth is that they crave love just as much as women do…just sometimes in different ways. Showing that you care in the way that he feels cared for is one of the best things you can do to keeping a relationship balanced and fulfilling. That might take learning how he feels loved. For instance, while you might feel loved when he listens to your stories and buys you flowers, he might not care about either of those things. He might feel loved when you go on a walk together or cuddle while watching a movie. Showing him that you want, enjoy, and appreciate him enough to show love how he feels loved are sure ways to making a lasting relationship.
2. Men Cannot Be Forced Into Commitment
Not only is it impossible to make a man happily commit to something he’s not ready to commit to, but forcing him into something is a great way to lose him. A true commitment must be genuine in order for it to last, so while you might be ready for a lifelong commitment, remember that he might not be. In the same way that you wouldn’t want to be pressured into doing something you aren’t yet comfortable doing, don’t think that pressuring a man into something will make him want to do it. Naturally, it might just end up causing problems.
3. Men Are Not Perfect
You’re not perfect and neither is anyone else–that even includes the man of your dreams. Real people have wonderful talents and amazing personalities, but they are by no means perfect and shouldn’t be held to impossible standards. Understanding and having grace for someone’s flaws, weaknesses, and limitations is one of the best ways to truly love them and make a relationship work. Rather than finding a man’s annoying habits or inabilities frustrating, learn to evaluate them as they are, have patience, and determine a way to work with them. Don’t assume you can change him and don’t assume that he’s trying to annoy you. Just remember that he’s unique and so are you!
