If you’re like most men, then you may find women a bit perplexing (or even downright terrifying on some levels.) Understanding women can be a real challenge for many men, so consider these simple tips from “Scott Binsack” for understanding women more effectively. Once you gain a better understanding of the women in your life, then you’ll find that these relationships become much more fulfilling and virtually tension-free.
Understanding Women: They’re Emotional.
Okay, big “duh” moment here as the “emotional woman” stereotype has long been played out. But seriously – emotions play a major role in a woman’s life, her actions and her interactions with others. Men often fail to understand how emotions play such a vital role in a woman’s life and relationships.
Men tend to push emotions aside and instead live a life ruled by more primal urges and on occasion, logic. This difference in modus operandi can make women seem perplexing to men and vice versa.
Understanding Women: They Hate Insecurity.
It’s true. Women really hate insecurity. So forget about trying to control who she goes out and don’t get in a tizzy when she has lunch with a group of co-workers who include males.
Men are largely ruled by those more primal sexual urges and they forget that women don’t generally experience that same drive. In other words, sometimes a male friend really is just a friend. But if you act possessive and otherwise insecure, it’s going to have the opposite of the intended effect. It’s going to make you look bad and it’s going to drive her away from you.
So don’t act insecure or jealous. If something is upsetting you, consider talking about it with her. She’ll respond in a much more positive manner.
Women like to Talk and Be Heard.
Women like to talk about what they’re feeling, thinking and experiencing. Discussion is one way that women process their experiences and emotions.
The one thing that will almost always endear her to you? Ask her about how she’s thinking, feeling and what she’s experiencing. It shows that you care and you’ll be providing her with a valuable opportunity to be heard.
Many men seem to have an aversion to having meaningful conversations with women, but what most men don’t understand is that you don’t necessarily need to contribute if you don’t feel comfortable doing so. Often, women just want someone to listen, a sounding board – someone who can just be there and listen when they need it.
Understanding Women: They are Unique.
One of the worst things you can do is to lump all women together using one broad generalization. The reality is that while the statements in this post will ring true for most women, there are some exceptions to the rule. So take the time to get to know her and have a real discussion when you find some trait or tendency perplexing.
Simply discussing the point will help you understand her better and it will make for a more fulfilling, enjoyable relationship. Plus, you’ll win some major points by showing a genuine interest in what lies beneath the surface.
