An attitude refers to what a man does, not to what he thinks, feels, or believes. ” – Emily Dickinson
Men and women have a different way of showing their love and affection Except for the rare ultra-sensitive men, this is almost a universal truth.
This is often confusing for women. “Yesterday he was the nicest guy in the world. And today is a complete asshole. ” And it is undoubtedly true! The words and actions of men often leave us perplexed.
The truth is that men and women think differently. Generally, women tend to be more sensitive and accommodating – two areas in which many men struggle.
That said, men have a variety of attitudes to show their love for a woman.
HERE ARE EIGHT OF THEM:
1. HE LISTENING TO YOU (CAREFULLY!)
In general, women can listen better than men. To be frank, the ability to listen to some men is absolutely appalling.
The curious thing is that men always pay attention to the most important subjects. So when a man not only listens to you, but also listens attentively and responds to you with finesse – an ability called active listening – you can be sure that he is absolutely crazy about you.
2. HE IS NOT AFRAID TO SACRIFICE
Consenting to personal sacrifices is much easier when you do it for someone you love. In fact, a man in love cannot bear the idea of making his wife unhappy – above all, if it can be avoided.
So making sacrifices for your happiness is a way for a man to show you his love. He’ll almost always put you first, even if it means changing his plans or getting out of his comfort zone.
3. He EXPOSES HIS VULNERABILITY (THIS IS AN IMPORTANT POINT)
As a man remains a man, we take care not to display behaviors that may be perceived by others as weakness. In love, on the other hand, this mechanism deeply rooted in us is often overlooked – and we don’t care.
When we are in love, we like to be vulnerable. Vulnerability will appear several times during your relationship – especially if we are only with you.
4. HE LOVES YOUR BEAUTY EVEN IN YOUR “BAD DAYS”
Do you remember the amount of effort required to be seen in your best light at your first meetings? Certainly. We all want to feel and look good when we meet a potential partner.
Then there is the real relationship. As we spend more time together, the level of comfort increases and our need to impress the other decreases sharply. We are free to walk around in our pajamas, stain our shirts and give up hair gel.
When we men love someone, we think a woman is beautiful in any situation.
5. HE IS PROUD OF YOU (AND NOT AFRAID TO SHOW IT)
In love, a real man does not hesitate to say how proud he is of you.
Whether you are a fantastic mother, a hard worker, or reaching your goals, you can be sure that your efforts will not go unnoticed. In fact, all the wonderful things you do and work on bring us great pride and joy.
Besides, on this subject, we are not (too) annoyed with the idea of losing in front of you. If you are two lovers of the competition, he will probably feel less irritated after a quick defeat! (Good game!)
6. HE BEATS FOR YOU
Little personal anecdote. A writer was visiting a hospital when his girlfriend was harassed by a security guard and two of his fellows. By calling to ask where she was, you could feel panic in her voice.
He was furious. After having calmed down enough to orient himself in the corridors of the hospital, the author finally found the so-called bastards, rolled up his sleeves and literally burned them down. (Note that the story takes place in a foreign country – so a certain restraint was in order.) Despite the pleas of his girlfriend and after the stampede, all came out unscathed.
What explains my anger? The suffering in my wife’s voice. The blistering pain in the stomach, which can only be felt when you love someone deeply.
7. HE BEATS AT YOUR SIDE
It is obvious, but in order to not offend anyone – we are not talking about jets of insults and other dramas here. We are not talking about physical altercations either.
That said, if a man loves you and is emotionally involved in his relationship, he will cause “arguments” to avoid losing you; even if it means “fighting” with the woman he loves.
Why? Because we are afraid. We love you and for us, the slightest threat to our relationship is the equivalent of a punch in the hollow of the belly. If we are fighting for this goal, we want things to work and demonstrate our commitment.
8. HE TREATES YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WITH RESPECT
If we know someone is important to you, it becomes important to us by default. The reason is simple: you treasure family and friends, and the last thing we want to do is make you sad.
Although we may not like one of your family members (see: “parents-in-law and husband”) or one of your unpleasant friends, we will not say anything because we know how much they mean to you.
