They Don’t Always Enjoy Boy’s Nights Out
If your man has been going on about heading off on a boy’s night out, you might be thinking it will be a night for him to get drunk and flirting with other women, dancing, and generally mucking around with his friends. But the truth is that it could just be that he wants a bit of chill out time to catch up with his friends. I know whenever my lover goes out he doesn’t always have a good time – sometimes he misses me and would rather be cozied up watching a movie together or enjoying a lunch or dinner with me at a nice restaurant. So don’t assume that just because your man is out with his friends, he’s having more fun than when he’s with you, and don’t make him feel bad about it!
You Always Look Beautiful
Ok, so some men are really, really good at complimenting. I’ve been with one of them at one point in my life. Sometimes, the time you most need to hear that you look beautiful isn’t when you’ve spent three hours doing your makeup for a special night. It’s when you’ve just rolled out of bed in the morning, or when you’re sick and haven’t bothered to brush your hair. A man who can tell you that you look beautiful at these times is a keeper ladies, so don’t let him go away!
They’re Afraid of Being Alone
I used to think that it was just women who got afraid of growing old and being alone. With so many of my friends in their 20’s and early 30’s getting married, it was always something at the back of my mind. It was only recently, when chatting with my boyfriend, that I realized men have the same fears! It makes sense, after all, we’re all human. Nobody likes the idea of being old and alone, so don’t think that just because men don’t always express how they’re feeling, they don’t feel the same things as we do!
They Miss You
If you’re lucky enough to have a boyfriend who is always texting and calling you when he misses you – you’re very lucky indeed! Saying ‘I miss you’ is one of the things men will never (or almost never) tell you. For some men, an admission that they miss you and want to see you is a sign of dependency and weakness, and if they want to keep the upper hand in the relationship, they’ll keep their distance when it comes to displaying their emotions. Luckily, you can sometimes get your man to open up by being the one to initiate the “I miss you” or “I love you” conversation – hopefully, he’ll take the hint!
You’re Scary When You Have PMS
Sensible men know better than to try and engage you with any kind of meaningful conversation when you have PMS. They also know never ever to tell you that you’re irrational, freaky, overemotional or any of these things, if they want to live! But you know you can be a bit scary sometimes, whether you cry more often than usual or just become irrationally and up the wall at your boyfriend over the slightest things. Sometimes I wonder how men put up with our hormones?
They’re Jealous of Your Guy-friends
Many men don’t like to show weakness, and for some guys, that includes signs of jealousy. If they show they’re jealous, they’re revealing their insecurity to you. Whilst some men can be overly jealous and possessive, there are others who won’t express how they feel. You might think he doesn’t care that you’re at the bar with your guy-friends every Friday night, but in reality, he could just be keeping the peace or afraid to bring the subject up. The chances are, he’s jealous, even if it’s just a teeny-weeny bit. Give man a chance!
They Worry They Haven’t Got It All Figured Out Yet
I’m sure many of us spend time worrying about where we are in life – we feel like we should have it all figured out by now and be on the path to happiness. Men are no different; they have the same worries as we do, and they often won’t talk about it, that doesn’t mean they don’t feel the same! Men can be more immature than women, which means they often take longer to figure out what they want and where they want to go in life. It’s not unusual for a man in his 30s or evens his 40s to still not know where he’s headed. It’s good to know that we’re not the only ones! And if you are set in your mind and you know what you want, well, share your thoughts with him!
