Dating an aloof man
According to Jenni Trent Hughes of e Harmony, men are more likely to marry for companionship and women for a stronger sense of self, offered through a partner's love and support.If we go on this theory, then it would make sense that the majority of men who marry are emotionally available for connection and deeply desire it.He may listen to you now, but soon enough he's gonna meet someone new who DOESN'T need a man to fulfill her every last wish. If you're dating a decent man then it's a given that family is going to be important to him. There's no need to start getting all insecure around him and pushing for a compliment. They need time to process things and be on their own.
, I've been insecure about the fact that men need space in relationships. When 1,040 married couples were surveyed in 2012, results revealed that husbands are keener on spending time with their spouses than are wives.
It doesn't help that most men I've dated have either asked for space, took space without warning or turned space into "Goodbye."Because I thought men did that rubber band thingy where they pulled back a lot, I would often tiptoe around a man who seemed like he was "on break," afraid to express my need for connection and emotional security while stifling my anger about what seemed like selfish behavior on his part. Or, if you're single, do you find that most of the men you date take more personal space than you'd like? And, husbands miss their spouses more when separated than do wives.
Our conscious self is drawn to the positive qualities we yearn for, but our unconscious draws us to the qualities which hurt us the most as children.” – Psychology Today So games used to work on me because 1) I had unresolved daddy issues and 2) At the tender age of 20, I was trying to figure out who I was and to top it off, I was ridden with insecurity and a low sense of self-worth.
But somewhere in between the passing of a decade, something changed. I became independent, confident, and started to value my self-worth. Now, this has nothing to do with the actual age of a person.
