Recently I wrote about some things that women may or may not know about struggles or attitudes men face while dating. You can find that HERE. I hope this article can shed even more light on dating for men.
Men realize they like a girl much earlier than women do
It's far more common for a man to develop a crush on a woman earlier than a woman crushes on a man. This happens to women also, but a lot of the time the feelings grow for women. This happens less for men, and something women should take from this is that you really *can't* make a guy like you, because if he didn't before he won't now.
Men try to impress you because we don't have much of a choice
Men show off not because they think they're better than everyone else, it's because they need to separate themselves from the sea of other men out there. How can an average joe with a 9-5 get attention? Maybe he takes up a cool hobby or buys an expensive car. Is it effective? To a degree it does. No one likes average, you need to have some interesting or you're seen as replaceable.
We crave femininity
We want you because you have that female essence we can't replicate. Of course we want you to watch a football game with us or play video games with us from time to time. Most men can attest to this, no one can make us feel better than sympathy and compassion a woman shows us. It's honestly a magical thing, and any woman reading this should realize now that she has a superpower.
We absolutely friendzone girls
I want to put this to bed once and for all. Some people think that it's only men that get friendzoned. Somehow a man would *never* have platonic only feelings for a girl and crave sex from everyone with a vagina. It's just not true. Yes there are desperate guys who would wife up anyone but most normal men have standards and need chemistry with a potential girlfriend.
We want to feel valued by you
If being valued and appreciated isn't #1 for most men, it has to be in the top 3 for most of them. We really want to be seen as your superhero. We may not be the most handsome man, but if we feel that way it goes a long way. If he is doing a lot of nice things for you, and goes out of his way for you, then it would mean a lot to him that you express how valuable he is to you.
We aren't anymore prone to cheating than women
Some men cheat, in fact, a lot of men do. But if you look at statistics men and women cheat at about the same rate. Some countries men are worse while women are worse in others. It's a risk men and women both share and putting the blame on either one will not solve the problem.
Finally, most men love women and we want them in our lives
I have empathy towards a lot of men on this site who make harsh generalizations towards women. Perhaps they have had bad experiences in the past that paints a bad light on them. MGTOW and INCELS are a rather small and extreme population that doesn't represent most men. I guarantee the majority would drop most of the hate and rhetoric if they found that right girl. The problem is that they never look at their own problems, but instead blame others. For the rest of us, we want you in our lives because you compliment us quite well. You have some gifts that other men really couldn't provide for us. So thanks to all the kind hearted women out there for making our world better.
