Experiences with insecure men The first time I ever dated an insecure guy was almost a decade ago.
When I write dating tips and relationship advice for a new mode, I am writing to a female audience.
(Guys, if you’re reading this…get in touch if you want to share!
It's a fact of life for the modern woman, committing to someone other than themselves is scary stuff. I often hear women complaining that there are no eligible men anymore and that they struggle to find anyone who matches up to their most basic requirements as a mate.
I can’t go into as much depth as I’d like to in this post, but men and women have different senses of how they’d like to be noticed for things (and what they’d like to be noticed for.) At the root of it, when a man feels like he make a woman happy, he will not want to be in a relationship with her (or if he stays, he will not want to deepen it). Back to neediness: When a woman starts acting needy, especially in the beginning of a relationship, it shows up as the ultimate red flag. Neediness is synonymous with ’emotional dependency’, as in: “This woman is dependent on the guy in order for her to feel good.” Now, sometimes when I start explaining this, I’ll get a comment saying, “Oh so what? You can have it all, too, but what I’m trying to explain in this article is that you don’t get it from it.
A career has meant financial liberation allowing women to purchase their own apartments and cars and whole self-sufficient lifestyle unheard of two generations previously.
In all my years of dating men, if there’s one thing that’s stuck out like a sore thumb in a man, it’s his insecurity.
It seems to me, women just aren't ready to compromise their new found strengths and are very frightened of monogamy.
Every time I have attempted to have a serious relationship, it is the girl who has panicked when things become more intense." Sociologically, this is an interesting development and Sean's view is not alone.
