Understanding Men 101

Ever since the dawn of time, women always had a hard time understanding men. Some have actually tried to fully understand them, but… this is close to impossible. But, at the very least, having an insight on men, can broaden your perspective to a whole new range.



Understanding men can be broken down in a few simple points.


If you’re in a relationship…

- Men are simple and direct. They love differently than women.

Remember, men do not tend to be as elaborate and as expressive as women. Allow them some time to get to know you, and slowly, they will get more comfortable with you.

They may or may not show love and commitment at the degree you expect them to, in which case, you may need to try and open up the issue with them. Maybe he doesn’t come across as committed to the relationship as you are, but who knows… maybe he’s just not the cheesy, showy type?

At any rate, there’s always a right time and a right place to talk, but for now, give it time, okay?


- Men need to feel appreciated.

As a partner, women should always express how much they appreciate their man’s hard work, this gives men the confidence and strength to keep doing the right things. If you tell him how much you appreciate him, it will inspire him more.


- You’ll know if a man truly loves you, when professes his love for you.

He’ll provide for you and he’ll protect you. This is true. Shucks.


If you’re entering a relationship…

- Men will respond or communicate “only” when they’re ready or when they are interested.

If you call a man, never call more than once. Leave a message if you can’t get a hold of him. If he doesn’t respond, then chances are, he doesn’t want to… yet.


- Men are a little afraid of commitment… at first.

As a general rule, do not bring up marriage, babies and the whole enchilada. Men will ease up to the idea in time… or whenever they’re ready.


- Men wake up with a fresh, new slate and won’t even remember yesterday’s arguments.

Do not bring up past arguments just because you ‘may’ feel you didn’t get any closure. Men do not like being nagged, so it’s best to move forward. It’s hard, I know, but this is for the best.



These are just a few general facts about men and women. You and your partner might be a little more complicated than this, but for the most part, a lot of these are true. Remember, most men are simple and direct, and while most women are complicated and tend to sugarcoat. But at the end of the day, trust and communication are the key to any stable relationship.
