Just like women, men also have their own needs and wants. The only difference is that men don’t tend to express their feelings as well as women, making it difficult to exactly pinpoint what they really want. To get an insight of men’s way of thinking, we chat with the men in our office and circle of friends. If you want some clues on how your beau thinks, here are what you need to know.
- Men are more comfortable with saying ‘I love you’ through actions.
Since most men are not vocal with their feelings, they oftentimes prefer showing their love instead of saying it. You might notice your man doing favours for you, like fixing things around the house, taking out the trash, or tidying up the backyard—anything that would make you feel better and more convenient. That’s their way to express their love.
- Men take commitment very seriously.
Men have this reputation of being afraid to commit to a relationship. However, the evidence suggests otherwise and proves that men take marriage very seriously. They take longer to commit because they want to be sure before getting onboard. In a survey of married men, around 90% said that they would marry the same woman again.
- Men Struggle with Visual Temptation
Most women get upset if they catch their man checking out a hot chick while they’re walking around in public. Though this is admittedly offensive, studies suggest that even the most faithful boyfriends and husbands still struggle avoiding visual temptations. They’re really just built that way.
- Men find shared activities nourishing to the relationship.
Instead of sharing feelings and thoughts, men prefer doing shared activities to strengthen relationships. For most men, activities like outdoor expeditions, sports, and sex makes them feel closer to their partner.
- Men want more sex.
As mentioned, sex is among men’s favourite activities with their partner. Perhaps, you’re thinking men want more sex because of their strong physical needs. However, researches show that the reason behind men’s great longing for sex is because of their need to be desired by their spouse. If you think this will make your man happy, just give it to him. It will help nurture the relationship, as well as the intimacy.
Surely, there are a lot of other things guy wish women knew about them that haven’t mentioned. But hopefully, the five we enumerated already enlightened and helped you to understand your man a lot better.
