Detangle Love’s Insight:
We all know the age-old question: what do women want? But has anyone ever asked about what men want? No ladies, it’s not just about food in their bellies and a fantastic bedroom life! It turns out men are much more sensitive and insightful than many women would think. And they definitely have a few important things to say. Are you ready to listen?
Men are sharing ALL their secrets today!
It isn’t a secret that women are much better at expressing their innermost feelings and desires than men are. And they’re frequently criticized for being complicated creatures.
But the truth of the matter is that men can be just as guilty of giving off mixed signals to the opposite gender.
But let’s be clear: that doesn’t mean that men aren’t overflowing with feelings and desires of their own. Because ladies,… there are a few things men wish women knew…and we’re here to dish! So keep reading, and don’t forget that no two men are alike.
Let’s look at the most eye-opening secrets men want women to know about them!
1. They Like Compliments Just As Much As You Do
Many men try to play it off like they don’t need you to praise them. But anyone who tries telling you they don’t want a compliment tossed their way every once in a while is full of it. The secret is that they really do want to know what you’ll think they look like in that new shirt.
And yes, they want you to notice how the edge of their sleeves looks on their biceps. Whether you voice them or give them a lingering stare, these compliments remind men of what attracted you to them all those years ago. It appeals to their Darwinian sense of selectivity.
This means it’s crystal-clear to them why you keep choosing them over some other monkey. And sure, it makes them think that there’s a possibility of practicing the art of procreation.
2. They’re Just As Sensitive And Can Hurt More!
One of the biggest secrets men wish women would understand is that they also have a sensitive nature. In fact, men hurt more, feel more, and are extra-sensitive. But all these feelings are usually hidden around the women they love.
For instance, suppose a man happens to get into an argument with his significant other, and she breaks his heart. In this case, he might pretend to be stronger, and will simply walk away without expressing how he feels.
But in all actuality, he’s deeply broken on the inside. He won’t cry in front of her or plead for her understanding. He would rather merely hide his pain and sit alone miserably over his hurt ego.
3. Their Honesty Is Well-Intentioned
They really do understand that, at times, tact can be a four-letter word they’ve never heard of before. But oftentimes, being brutally honest is their way of showing you how much they care.
Think about it this way: Throughout our day, it’s common to fib or beat around the bush with people we have no interest in. The art of BS is how most people get through their day. But with his significant other, a man wants to forget all that.
They want to tell you why something bothers them and why your bickering with your high-maintenance friend is a waste of time. In their mind, they think it’ll solve the issue. But the secret is that they also want you to know that they think the world of you.
After all, didn’t our moms teach us that we shouldn’t lie to the ones we love?
4. They NEED A Bit Of Space
Another major secret men wish women knew is that every once in a while, they need some extra space for their own personal reasons. It has nothing to do with you. They’re not always in the mood for chatter or hearing about your gossip.
And they definitely don’t want to hear you complain about their shortcomings. So, if you see your significant other enjoying some valuable alone time, the secret is to leave him to it!
You shouldn’t misunderstand his need for occasional space as him avoiding you or waiting for you to join him. Everyone needs to free their minds from time to time. And this time, it’s your partner’s turn. You shouldn’t take it personally.
5. They Want To Help You Solve Your Problems
One of the most significant differences between men and women is how they handle tough situations. Women often want to talk about what’s going on just for the sake of talking. To know that someone is genuinely listening to them and is there to comfort them when times get rough.
And there’s nothing wrong with that. But for men, the secret is that it’s in their instinct to come up with the solutions to the problem as soon as possible. You can blame it on how they’re wired, but it boils down to the fact that they don’t want to see their loved ones suffering.
So if you want them to listen, and not do anything about the problem or offer their opinions on how to fix it, then the secret is that you should say that upfront. That way, they’ll know to keep their mouth closed and simply listen with open arms.
6. They Hate When You Praise Other Men In Front Of Them
This is another big secret, ladies! It’s all about self-respect and possessiveness. Here’s how it works. Suppose you’re with your partner, and you brag about another man in front of him, even if it might be your cousin. Admiring his wealth or looks may result in two things.
First, it could hurt your significant other’s self-respect. To him, it seems as though you don’t like the way he looks or you consider him comparatively poor, and that’s why you’re praising someone else in front of him.
Second, every man is possessive about his woman, no matter what they say. He may not show it, but it definitely bothers him when she admires another man and prefers him. Women are possessive about their men all the time. So why on earth wouldn’t men be?
7. He Wants Praise For The Things He Gifts You
If you want to keep a healthy and long-running relationship with your partner, then you need to remember a crucial secret about men. They require praise and admiration when they give you a gift.
It doesn’t matter if it’s something small or big, unexpected, ordinary looking, and so on. If you critique whatever he buys you, it might hurt his feelings. And after a while, he’ll stop gifting you things altogether.
Men are different from women in researching their favorites or running from one store to another to buy something that’s special for their loved ones.
So, even if he presents you with a flower he purchased at the very last moment, accept it and admire it…at the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts, right?
8. They Need Reassurance
Want to know the underlying reason men love sports so much? According to experts, it’s all about measurable success. When a game ends, no one debates the number of home runs, touchdowns, or points on that big flashing scoreboard.
An athlete works hard toward a goal and is rewarded with concrete evidence of all his or her efforts. So what’s the indisputable proof of a successful emotional life? Well, the data is a bit less visible.
Men fear vagueness because, for one reason or another, it tends to feel like failure isn’t too far behind. And let’s be honest…Don’t we all hate to fail? To soothe this fear, the secret is that men love it when you became an ally in emotional pursuits. They need and want reassurance.
Tell them when they’re being supportive, and assure them that it’s OK if they cry at that movie with the sad ending, especially one like The Green Mile. They even want to know that you really appreciate them when they open up to you about sensitive subjects.
It’s basically like giving them a pat on the back. But it’s the motivation they need to keep stepping in a more emotionally well-rounded direction.
