So even if they have buddy's and friends they hang out with they dont have a strong support system (emotionally) like women do? Thus on average they may feel more lonely than women?
Usually, yes. Guys, on average, don't talk about their feelings or innermost thoughts, even with "close friends." They talk about shared hobbies, jokes, and superficial things, but nothing deep.Statistically, older men are more likely to commit suicide after their wife dies because they don't have anyone else that they really feel attached to. This is statistically less likely to occur in women who have lost their husband.Men are also statistically less likely to admit when they're having a problem or to seek help. This further contributes to their lack of a support system.
Awe that's sad... Damn. Question. So if a guy likes a girl will he be more open about his thoughts and feelings? Or is it surface chat for a while? Depends on the guy?I liked/attrached to a man once who was all surface. I walked away because I was done with the casual thing. He seemed pretty mad...(maybe sudden change with no sex) But I didn't get why he was mad because he did say casual. All he talked about were hobbies and kinks. Very surface. Honestly wish I could have gotten to know him better but I didn't want to be one of those girls trying to form something and cross boundaries. So I left. Anyway, weird, but this topic made me think of him. I still wonder what kind of person he is under kink and hobby chat.
With everything, it depends on the individual. No blanket statement applies to everyone. But usually, yes, it stays kind of reserved and surface level for a while (sometimes a long while) before they open up. It takes a lot of built up trust and comfort to undo decades of learned behavior. And a gentle push in that direction, for good measure. It can't be rushed, but it also may never happen if you don't give it a nudge.Sounds to me like maybe your guy wasn't actually sure what he wanted. Or couldn't be honest with himself about it. Only he knows for sure. Assuming he ever allowed himself to give it any thought.
Hmmm great insight! Thank you! Now you have great emotional intelligence. Stay awesome
