He Hurts When

Some people think men don't have feelings they're willing to express. What hurts a man's feelings usually stays within his soul. What types of behavior or statements from women or those who associate with a man disappoint and hurt? You may be surprised as you read and learn. It's been said that it's easy to bruise a man's ego.

He Hurts When

Can You Handle It? A Relationship

Men and women may dream about it, making plans to create it, treasure it, and keep it. When the rubber hits the road ...

Can You Handle It?

Ever since the women's movement, women's liberation, and burning bras, women have become more independent, verbal/ vocal, and competitive. There's absolutely nothing wrong with women being liberated—even earning the same wages that a man would in the same job.

How has the movement affected a woman's role in a relationship with a man—her man? Do women like being in a position to be told what to do by her man? How about assuming a submissive role—not the backseat—just submissive? What does submissive mean to women—to you? Think about this, if you are in a relationship with the man you have chosen to share your life with, haven't you given him permission to have your best interest at heart? If that is the case, then you need to trust him enough to make prudent decisions for you from time to time. And if you disagree, disagree with respect. Follow his lead because he is quite capable. After all, you selected him. Remember, if he really has your best interest at heart, he will not set out to bring you hurt, harm, or danger. You being misguided or misdirected is not in his best interest. If he loves you, cares about you, and respects you, trust him!

Can you handle not being able to be Miss Social Butterfly all the time? Can you stay home sometimes—just for the mere fact of being there? Can your needs be secondary once in a while without resenting it and taking it out on your man? And can you really compromise? Do you really want to compromise? When you are in a relationship, you are still independent, smart, and capable of making your own decisions. The one thing you're not is single, or single-minded. There's a man sharing your space, involved in your territory—a man who may not always understand you, console you, and comfort your every desire; a man who loves you to be happy but is limited in making you happy. You, man or woman, are responsible for your own happiness. Others can only add to what already exists. Can you handle the moods of another person in your space? Does it matter to you if he's talkative today and reclusive the next? Can you handle a relationship with someone other than yourself? Can you handle feeling alone in a relationship with a man or feeling crowded when you crave your own space? Can you really handle what you think you want to, only to find out the reality that you may not handle well or at all!


Be Yourself, Don't Pretend

Do you like phony people? Not too many of us do. So please ...

Be Yourself, Don't Pretend

How would you respond if you were dating a man who told you he loved to cook—to bake, even—and after dating, being engaged, and getting married, you realized, he told you that, but he actually couldn't cook at all. He couldn't boil an egg without supervision! You'd probably feel a little disappointed and deceived. You may even respond in anger.

Now, flip the script. The man you date thinks you enjoy sports, especially football. Every Sunday, the two of you watch all the games together—beginning around one in the afternoon and ending somewhere after 10:00 p.m. Long day, right? But you love football—or at least you told him that. The truth of the matter is, you despise sports, especially football. You simply cannot understand why it takes three hours to play a game that should be over in one. Usually, when a man is attracted to a woman, he's attracted to what he sees, what he hears her say, and the interests they share. When a man is sold a bill of goods and is hoodwinked into a relationship that is based on untruths, he resents it. After all, wouldn't you?

It's very important to men that you are who you say you are. The moral of the matter is simple—be yourself; don't pretend to be someone you have no business being or don't even like. When a man wants and desires to be with you, he's made that decision based on the real deal. Be the real deal, and he won't break the deal!

Go back to the first paragraph. The question was, "How would you respond if you were dating a man who, for the most part, sold you a bill of goods?" not "How would you feel?" In most cases, a woman would respond by ending the relationship. Don't be shocked when and if he does the same. Remember, the truth will be revealed at some point during the relationship, so do yourself a favor and reveal who you are earlier. One, it pays off in the long run.
