How you live your life is entirely up to you.ii) Challenge your basic preconceptions about your relationship to ‘women’ en masse.
Possibly challenge preconceived notions of what it means to be a man.
Nothing will universally impress or attract all women.
Over the past few decades, linguists have shown that, when it comes to speech, many gender stereotypes hold remarkably true: Men tend to speak loudly, while women whisper; men talk over each other, while women conspire behind each other’s backs; men hold back their feelings, while women lay them out to strangers they meet on the subway.
Unfortunately, the man of the house was taught some misconceptions in his formative years, too.
He learned, perhaps from his father, that his only responsibility is to provide materially for his family.He must enter a business or profession and succeed at all costs, climbing the ladder of success and achieving an ever-increasing standard of living as proof of manhood.It never occurs to him that he is supposed to "carry" his wife emotionally. If he pays his family's bills and is a loyal husband, what more could any woman ask for? Inevitably, these differing assumptions collide head-on during the early years of marriage. What gradually develops from that misunderstanding is a deep, abiding anger on Diane's part, and a bewildered disgust from John.If you pursue the former, the problem needs to be tackled on several levels.i) Reduce your baseline anxiety and stress; in particular, nurture your needy inner child.Needs can emotional, mental, psychological and physical (including material and financial.)Do whatever you can to fulfil yourself without somebody else. Do you wait for permission from somebody else to eat?The problem has its origins in childhood, long before a young man and woman stand at the altar to say, "I do." For her part, the girl is taught subtly by her culture that marriage is a lifelong romantic experience; that loving husbands are entirely responsible for the happiness of their wives; that a good relationship between a man and woman should be sufficient to meet all needs and desires; and that any sadness or depression that a woman might encounter is her husband's fault.
